Vitamin intake in Turkey increases amid pandemic

The vitamin intake of the Turkish public has increased, while even gas stations selling supplements and that is a concern, experts have warned.

According to a piece by Hürriyet daily’s Meltem Özgenç, the demand for vitamins has increased amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with people hoping to strengthen their immune system against the disease.

According to the article, excessive use of vitamins can be harmful and even lethal, experts have warned, underlining that every person’s metabolism has different needs and physicians should be consulted before consuming any sort of vitamin or supplement.

“Our country has become a junkyard of supplementary nutrition, vitamins and minerals. Everybody’s needs are different,” the head of the Turkish Employer Pharmacists Union (TEIS) Nurten Saydan said, warning that medicines, supplements and vitamins should only be bought from pharmacies and used under doctor supervision.
