Vitamins and microelements
Vitamins and microelements are among the most essential components characterizing the biological value of foods. The human body cannot synthesize most vitamins, thus they should come with food.
More than 10 essential vitamins are involved in the majority of chemical processes in the human body. The low content of trace elements reduces the protective function of the body and disrupts the formation of bone tissue.
Products of vegetable origin are rich source of vitamins (e.g., cereals, vegetables and fruits). The fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K are contained in animal proteins, oils, legume crops and others.
Healthy people and patients with obesity need daily intake of trace elements - iodine, iron, selenium and calcium. Unfortunately, food products cannot fully make up the physiological need of the body in these micronutrients.
Regardless of age and health status, it is recommended seasonal intake of multivitamin complexes with the necessary vitamins and minerals, especially for patients with obesity or overweight using a low calorie diet.
Together with healthy diet, it is necessary to increase the intensity of physical exercises and to change lifestyle. Exercises should be of moderate or high intensity. It is in such physical activity, the rate of fat burning increases.
In increased physical activity, a sufficient level of vitamins in the body supports the immune system in the normal state. This should help patients who grow thin to better tolerate intense workouts and stably to reduce body weight.
