As a result of Mineral Metabolism Disturbances, some people, having recovered from coronavirus infection, continue to experience symptoms in what has become known as ‘long COVID’.
Many people were affected by fatigue, headache, brain fog, muscle aches, persistent shortness of breath and, in some cases, diarrhoea or loss of smell and taste.
Many micronutrients are needed for normal energy-yielding metabolism. Multivitamin and mineral supplements will help to correct any nutritional deficiencies including:
Thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), vitamin B6, vitamin B12, biotin, vitamin C, calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus.
Some micronutrients, such as vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, folate, vitamin C, iron and magnesium also contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. B group vitamins are vital for healthy thought processes, especially B1, B3, B6, B12 and folic acid. Magnesium also contributes to normal psychological function.
Mineral metabolism changes in important ways in the aging male and some of these changes are implicated in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis. Age-associated alterations in vitamin D status are caused by decreased formation in the skin, decreased gastrointestinal absorption and decreased conversion to the active moiety in the aging kidney.
It is important to remain mobile even when you are fatigued and experiencing muscle aches and pains. Micronutrients that are needed for normal muscle function include calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin D.
