Locking Coronavirus makes us more deficient in vitamin D



Locking Coronavirus makes us more deficient in vitamin D

Call it Vitamin D for Deficiency.

Even as the corona virus-related locking continues to increase in New York City, which begins phase 3 reopening on Monday, and more people are leaving their apartment limits to meet with friends under the summer sky, there is still one thing to remember : Even with easier access to the outside, we might still not have enough Vitamin D in our system.

“This can only come from adequate sun exposure, and without it there is not enough vitamin D source,” Dr. Len Horovitz, a doctor of internal and pulmonary diseases at Lenox Hill Hospital. “Either you are a farmer or a tennis pro and you get it that way, or you take it [daily] gel cap. “

Even before the onset of the coronavirus outbreak in the spring, vitamin D deficiency was a problem, but it became clearer since the closure encouraged people to stay indoors to curb the spread.

“[People] have lower ultraviolet exposure in lockdowns, “Horovitz said. “But it can be fixed.”

Sure, fish and fish oil are rich in Vitamin D – and with the risk of skin cancer, there is such a thing as too much sun exposure – but the best method is to “use the gel cap in the morning,” Horovitz said.

“This is the only vitamin that people really need,” he said, adding that you can get something else in a healthy diet.

Indeed, “this is one of the easiest deficiencies to correct,” said Dori Arad, Ph.D., clinical dietitian, exercise physiologist and director of Physiolab at Mount Sinai. The body makes Vitamin D from cholesterol under the skin, which activates sunlight, then goes to the liver and kidneys for further processing. But with those who are still in isolation – he appoints people with pre-existing conditions and those over the age of 65 – taking them in the form of vitamins is effective.

“Moving forward, we will see more Vitamin D deficiency,” Arad said.

Vitamin D has several benefits, including helping with bone density and immune system function, but the deficiency shows no acute signs or symptoms.

“The wound should heal better; “The fracture will heal faster,” Horovitz said.

Because replenishing vitamin levels that are depleted is very easy, there are no health implications for people who have lived in them for so long, he said.

“They may have more cabin fever and psychological effects than physical effects,” he said.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
