Why do we need these vitamins?
Not everyone understands what these B1, PP and other elements of the "Pikovite" mean. We will try to briefly describe why they are needed and what is improving in the human body with their regular use.
First of all, consider vitamin A. It is involved in all the synthesis processes that take place in the body all the time. In addition, it improves the condition of the skin, mucous membranes and eyes.
Vitamin B1 improves heart function and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. B2 is involved in the regeneration of cells and all tissues in general. B6 is responsible for maintaining the structure and health of the teeth, gums, and the nervous system. Thanks to vitamin B12 erythropoiesis normalizes. Such a complex of B vitamins helps the body in the production of enzymes responsible for metabolism.
All the advantages of vitamin C simply do not recount - this is the regulation of the processes that occur in the connective tissue, and the oxidation of biologically active substances. He is responsible for the clotting of blood and helps the regeneration of body tissues. Also stimulates the production of steroid hormones, regulates carbohydrate metabolism. In addition, it increases immunity and strengthens the body's protective functions. Vitamin C is also used to reduce the effects of inflammatory processes.
Vitamins of group B and C are excreted from the body by natural means. Due to the fact that they do not accumulate in large quantities in the body, their reception must be done regularly.
Vitamin D3 is needed by the body to maintain a balance of calcium and phosphorus. If a person has a lack of D3, then the probability of osteoporosis is high( the level of calcium in the bone tissue decreases).
Vitamins A and D are absorbed in the body in the small intestine. Surpluses accumulate in the liver, so the dose specified in the instructions should not be exceeded.
Without a sufficient amount of vitamin PP and d-panthenol, it is impossible for the central nervous system to function normally and produce energy. They are also involved in the synthesis of fatty acids and protein metabolism.
