Vitamin D is absolutely crucial for physical and mental health. However, its consumption can have side effects too, so it is worth taking it in doses recommended by a doctor.
Vitamin D itself is not allergic, but different manufacturers use some additives to improve the taste, the outer coating, etc. They can cause allergies, explained the therapist, consulted by Revyuh.
With an excess of vitamin D, itchy skin, headache, and nausea can appear, warned the doctor. This vitamin can accumulate in the liver, kidneys, and blood vessels.
However, now in pharmacies, vitamins are sold in special prophylactic doses. A safe dose of vitamin D is considered to be 600 IU.
International research suggests an association between low vitamin D levels and the likelihood of developing severe COVID-19 conditions. Vitamins D and C have been found to actually boost immunity and are able to resist the virus.
However, the doctor stressed that, when taking any supplement, you always have to comply with the daily dose. The doctor also urged avoiding self-medication. Especially vitamin complexes that can cause serious side effects and cause allergies should be avoided.
