Bengaluru, NFAPost: iHerb, the global health & beauty e-commerce leader has seen a manifold rise in demand for vitamin D and C from customers worldwide in recent times. Meanwhile, the company has met the requisite demand by providing the highest quality products with the best possible value, delivery speed, and customer service.
Global demand from iHerb customers for these vitamins is up more than 100-percent in the last year and more than 300-percent in the United States alone.
During a recent Instagram Live interview, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci spoke about the potential health benefits of both vitamins as part of an overall healthy lifestyle.
“If you’re deficient in vitamin D, that does have an impact on your susceptibility to infection,” Dr. Fauci said.
“I would not mind recommending, and I do it myself, taking vitamin D supplements.”
Vitamin D is created when people are exposed to UV rays from the sun and is present in some foods such as certain fatty fish like salmon, beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks. Vitamin D may help maintain bone strength and support immune function according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Dietary Supplements.
“The other vitamin that people take is vitamin C because it’s a good antioxidant,” Dr. Fauci continued during the Instagram Live interview. “So if people want to take a gram or so of vitamin C, that would be fine.”
iHerb urges customers considering taking vitamin D or C supplements to first check with their own health care provider for advice before doing so.
“iHerb is proud to offer one of the largest selection of highest quality vitamin D & C products to our Customers all over the world,” says iHerb President Emun Zabihi. “We will be offering vitamins and other top-selling health supplement products at deep discounts during our 24th-anniversary celebration throughout September.”
