Supplementation of vitamins and minerals during fasting by Dr. Ewa Dąbrowska is an increasingly discussed topic among supporters of fruit and vegetable fasting. The strict fasting phase is based 100% on a plant-based menu. As a result, we consume much larger amounts of vegetables and fruits, which are naturally rich in vitamins and minerals, than in traditional diets. It would seem, therefore, that we will consume sufficient amounts during it. Based on this assumption, it should be assumed that their additional supplementation is unnecessary.More
We rarely realize that we may have vitamin and microelement deficiencies, because their deficiencies are not revealed in a specific way, they are also rarely tested, and even just testing the level of e.g. magnesium in the serum may not reflect its actual level in the body, because 95% of magnesium is found not in the serum, but in the cells, and therefore it is more reliable to test the magnesium content in, for example, erythrocytes, where it is found 3 times more than in the plasma.
Also other tests, such as the level of thyroid hormone TSH - do not inform us about the actual condition of the thyroid gland (and indirectly the iodine content in the body), because the conversion of the inactive hormone into the active form (T to T3) takes place mainly in peripheral tissues (not only in the thyroid gland). ), which is not reflected in the TSH level. Therefore, many people may have hypothyroidism without knowing it, because the tested level of thyroid hormones may be normal. In such cases, clinical symptoms such as lack of energy, low body temperature, feeling of cold or hair loss are decisive. The actual cause of these ailments may be a deficiency of iodine and selenium, which are necessary to convert thyroid hormone into its active form.
Due to this, the use of high-quality supplements enriching the diet with essential nutrients is becoming increasingly necessary.Less
