Vitamins and minerals are essential substances for the body. The body cannot produce them itself, they must be provided through food or supplements.
Vitamins D and K are fat-soluble vitamins. Among other things, vitamin D is found in salmon, eggs and mushrooms. In contrast, vitamin K is mainly found in green vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, Brussels sprouts or in rape and grape seed oil.
The human body can produce vitamin D from sunlight itself or absorb it through food. The prerequisite for our body to produce vitamin D itself is that sufficient sunlight reaches the skin. Especially in the dark season it is difficult to get enough vitamin D from sunlight. This can lead to an undersupply. In this case, supplementation with vitamin D can be useful.
Since the body can produce vitamin D itself, it is strictly speaking not a vitamin at all. It belongs to the prohormones (hormone precursor). A prohormone has little or no hormonal effect. The body has to convert it into a hormone during metabolism.
Vitamin D performs a variety of tasks in the body. Among other things, it contributes to normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus and to a normal blood calcium levels. Furthermore, vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and normal muscle function. Vitamin D is also good for our health because it contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
Vitamin K is absorbed in the intestines and transported to the liver via the blood. Vitamin K contributes to normal blood clotting and the maintenance of normal bones.
In addition, Vitamin D Tabs contain the essential mineral zinc. Among other things, zinc contributes to a normal macronutrient metabolism, normal functioning of the immune system, normal carbohydrate metabolism and metabolism of fatty acids. Furthermore, the contained zinc contributes to protect the cells from oxidative stress. Zinc has a function in cell division and contributes to normal protein synthesis and the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Wound healing: leave a wound exposed or not? On popular assumptions and role of vitaminsSometimes it seems I'm the Überklutz as bad balance and absent mindedness made me crash down on my knee after forgetting to unfold one pedal of the folding bike and trying in vein to unfold it while riding.
Thinking it was only a minor wound it only occurred to me to visit the physician two days later when the wound wouldn't stop bleeding : turns out I should have gone immediately as it actually should have been stitched, for which it was too late some 48 hours later.
The assistant told me to clean the wound with water three times a day and take antibiotics for a week.
Can't remember whether plasters were recommended or not, but by chance, that same night I listened to that very same topic on a Dutch cycling podcast (Tweewielers). Apparently wounds should be covered up and kept moist rather than to let them dry and exposed to air.
Apparently this discovery to keep wounds moist was already known by physicians in traditional medicine around the world such as China Egypt or Greece, with methods of which some are being rediscovered, such as the habit to treat wounds with honey.
Seems I'm not the only one to have a wrong perception on what's best for wound healing. Covering up always seemed superfluous to me. What other popular assumptions are false or true? And what about supplements to take?

Feeling sad and stressed due to COVID-lockdown?
Depression in winter time is quite normal, because we aren't exposed to the vitamin D-generating sunrays, which also enhances immunity levels. Fortunately, we can take vitamin D supplements to combat seasonal depression as well as enhance immunity levels.
Another way to chase sadness away is by celebrating, no matter whether that's Sinterklaas, Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas or New Year. We will decorate our houses, exchange gifts and overeat , get a bit tipsy and enjoy ourselves.
This year is different: restaurants, shops and even gyms need to close down and we are not allowed to gather together in groups. Lack of entertainment, retail therapy and exercise will make it much more difficult to overcome feelings of depression.
It gets worse when you are among those who work in the tourism or entertainment industry and have lost your job as well as most of your income.
For now it is probably best to just accept the current state of affairs and try to console yourself with non-edible goods, such as nice music with a good book, entertaining movie, and aromatherapy (perfume/room fragrances).
And, weather permitting, put on your walking shoes and go for a long walk in the forests or local park.
But perhaps you have been feeling too stressed to enjoy whatever you still can do to relax? Or you were already feeling sad before COVID-19 came along? In that case, DHEA might help.
Can vitamin D help combat infectious diseases like COVID-19?
Zinc and HCQ
In the past few months, nearly everyone will have become familiar with the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and how it has been welcomed as a miracle drug, only to be set aside as being too dangerous to expose sick patients with underlying cardiovascular diseases to it.
Upon learning how HCQ is supposed to be used in this crisis, I was flabbergasted to read how HCQ was put to use by itself, as a drug on its own. True enough, HCQ is a malaria drug, but it was not just meant to be used as a curative medicin on its own for COVID-19 but as a messenger to transport the true miracle mineral, zinc into cells.
The now famous Zelenko protocol which uses HCQ , azithromycin and zinc as well as a number of other essential vitamins and minerals, was never meant to be used in hospital either, but for use by doctors on patients who had just fallen ill.
Now the researchers who discredited HCQ in the Lancet article have been debunked as having used fraudulous data in order to promote a much more expensive drug in which one of the authors had a vested interested, we think it is about time to explain a thing or two on why and how HCQ is used in combination with zinc.
