Vitamins and other mineral substances are very important for our health. Consumption of these reduces the risk of many health problems. This has been revealed through several studies.
At the same time, though recent research, researchers found that Vitamin A, E, and D intake reduces respiratory problems in adults. Under the analysis of the National Representative Long Term Survey data, researchers have received important information related to the benefits of these vitamins (A, E, and D).
Vitamins are Also Helpful in Preventing Respiratory Infections
The researcher suggested that this conclusion came after studies between different ethnic groups and geographic regions in the wake of the current coronavirus epidemic. As many in nutrition know infections have the ability to reduce the risk, however, how this enhances immunity is quite complex and is not fully understood.
The report states that vitamins A, E, C, and D are already suggested in the European Union to aid the normal functioning of the immune system.
At the same time, the American Nutrition Association also suggests that these vitamins may also be helpful in preventing respiratory infections. Researchers wanted to find out whether dietary and drug use could be associated with the prevalence of respiratory complaints in a national delegate sample of UK adults.
For this, he focused on the information supplied by 6,115 adult participants in the National Diet and Nutrition Survey Rolling Program (NDNS RP) between 2008 and 2016. These participants had completed three or more days associated with the diet diary.
Let us tell you that NDNS RP is a rolling survey that collects annual information of all food and beverages taken from about one thousand people living in private homes all over the United Kingdom. During this time, the people involved in the research had reported respiratory problems but they were not diagnosed by any doctor.
They were broadly defined and included both infectious and non-infectious conditions such as cold, chronic obstructive lung disease, and asthma.
Potential Influential Factors were Calculated
Researchers only looked at daily dietary amounts (constant risk) that were taken as food and medication. They also calculated the potentially influential factors that were responsible for intake. Such as weight (BMI), smoking, age, sex, household income, and total energy. In total, there were 33 cases of respiratory complaints.
These too were usually chronic cases and were less likely to say that they regularly take vitamin A, E, C, or D supplements. With this, the researchers found that there was no clear correlation between BMI and vitamin intake, or between BMI and respiratory complaints.
Here as well as it was not possible to determine any interaction with vitamin C supplements because none of the adults with respiratory complaints had consumed the vitamin C medication.
Separate researchers found that vitamin A and Vitamin E intake (both food and medicine) were associated with reduced respiratory complaints in UK adults. Major dietary sources of vitamin A include carrots, dark green leafy vegetables, and orange-colored fruits along with milk and cheese.
At the same time, the major dietary sources of vitamin E include vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. other than this medication for vitamin D can be consumed but not the diet associated with it.
The researchers went on to suggest that the findings support the scientific debate over the benefits of vitamin D splints. According to the researchers, it is estimated that approximately one-fifth of the general population in the UK suffers from vitamin D deficiency and more than 30% of adults aged 65 or older do not receive the recommended nutritional intake.
Our findings are consistent with the hypothesis that drug doses are important to ensure adequate vitamin D status and potentially indicate that adequate amounts of vitamin D cannot be met through diet alone. However, the researchers point out the caution that this is an objective study in which the cause cannot be established.
It had a small number of people associated with respiratory troubles, which means that no conclusions can be drawn regarding the coronavirus epidemic. Scientists suggested that further studies would be needed to implement this research in the context of the Kovid epidemic.
