A few days later in the online and print media present a pretty good news ‘shake’ promotive location and health preventive: supplements do not work against heart disease.
The reason, too little research (studies) are contradictory. There are claimed not found a significant contribution, there are states even gave the value of protection and improvement of the quality of blood vessels belonging to the heart.
As usual, the layman is very miserable.
I am also quite annoyed, aware of the limited knowledge of doctors in general about nutrition and functional food, after all supplementation.
Vitamin C for example, is limited to digestion as a ‘immune booster’. In fact, the injection is known to be as low as salon knowledge: for bleach and skin lightening – which is far from scientific evidence.
Not a few are aware, that as a creature that depends on vitamin C intake, people need it for the creation of collagen.
Collagen is not only for the sheer complexity of the skin, but instead for the inner walls of blood vessels, in order to avoid hardening the effects of degenerative factors.
Study or research, not flawless or problematic. Quite a few rash researches – especially those sponsored by particular interests – do not have a high degree of proof – or degree of evidence. Problem studies for example, are much lower than meta-analysis, or acakised controlled trials. Similarly, the selection of research subjects is often a stumbling block.
People who are randomly selected to follow a study do not necessarily have a uniform background: from the level of education, finance to the diet.
A randomized study involving the public with a shambles pattern will definitely not yield significant results on the use of any vitamins or supplements.
Because the principle of supplementation is simply ‘helping’, ‘adding’ that is not enough – not patching up the damage, plus instead being a drug substitute.
People will still be exposed to strokes or heart attacks, even taking a bag of vitamins and expensive supplements, if the diet is problematic, if the pressure of life is not resolved, besides the rhythm of life random adul.
Supposing, a good behavior will not create a person automatically called good, if there is a bias behavior that happens in his life. Also read: Why People Can not Change?
Indications of vitamins and supplements can not be made public education material. That’s why, doctors still recommend so many healthy, comparable healthy foods that are the best sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
That there are certain health conditions that need accelerated healing, then the physician who has the competence concerned that would prescribe a supplement match the personal needs of patients.
In the case of anemia, for example, often the accused is iron. Almost all anemic problems are ‘beaten’ with iron supplementation.
In fact, there is an anemic type called ‘non-iron deficiency anemia’ – which can be proven by more detailed and comprehensive laboratory checks.
Hemoglobin as a carrier of oxygen in red blood cells, arranged on the side by a heme-group or iron compound, even by globin, the protein.
In those with poor protein intake, or chronic illness, for example, anemia often occurs even though the supply of iron in the body is high, since the low is total iron binding capacity – or the total capacity of iron-binding skills.
So, in such patients if it were ‘beaten’ by iron supplementation, what happens is a new problem: siderosis – the deposit of iron in many organs and tissues, is the eye and brain.
Similarly, ‘craft of listening to health stories’, without consulting a competent expert, often creates a layman trapped in a condition of ‘self-medication’.
The most recent thing happening lately is the abuse of vitamin D. Vitamin D is known as ‘the sunshine vitamin’.
So how ironic it is that in a sun-rich country, the solar power above the precarious house can be a source of electricity – but the inhabitants should be taking vitamin D capsules.
As fat-soluble vitamins, the benefits of vitamin D are not without danger. Bone pain, loss of muscle mass, until the risk of kidney stones is not good news of course.
Calcium supplementation is also not without risk. In a randomized study of 1471 postmenopausal women held in New Zealand, 21 of the 732 women receiving calcium supplementation 1000 mg per day felt a heart attack, comparing 10 of the 736 people who received placebo (the study subjects received an empty tablet without calcium).
