In addition to standard online prescriptions and compounded pharmacy, eMedical provides a wide variety of non prescription products, including vitamins that can be bought right here at our online chemist.
What Are Vitamins
A vitamin is an organic compound that our bodies need to work right, especially our metabolisms. While our bodies produces many of these, we often don’t make enough on our own, and also need these nutrients from our food. Not having enough of these vitamins can cause health problems such as digestive issues, blood and bone changes and even birth defects.
There are two types of vitamins. Fat-soluble vitamins – such as A, D, E, and K – are absorbed through your lipids or ‘fats’; as such, they can be stored, sometimes for weeks or even months at a time. In contrast, water-soluble vitamins – like B and C – cannot be stored, so they need to be consumed or replaced more often.
eMedical’s Vitamin Support
Some of the vitamins that eMedical can provide for you include:
- Vitamin A – if you’ve ever heard that carrots improve your vision, this is why. Deficiency of this vitamin can cause eye problems, especially night vision. If you aren’t a fan of leafy greens, ground veggies, or (you guessed it) carrots, you can get it from our potent Vitamin A ampoules from Skin Doctors.
- Vitamin C – while ascorbic acid doesn’t quite help your immune system as much as pop culture would have you believe, it is important to prevent scurvy…which certainly looks like an immune deficiency to the uninformed! If you aren’t a fruit fan, we have Vitamin C supplements from Swisse and Skin Doctors.
- Vitamin D – these vitamins work with Calcium to strengthen our bones, and our bodies can actually produce it from exposure to sunlight! However, during the months when it’s too cold or too hot to spend much time outdoors, our supplements from Swisse can protect your bones.
- Vitamin E – this fat-soluble vitamin can cause all manner of reproductive problems, from sterility in men, to miscarriages in women, to anaemia in new infants. Luckily, it can be absorbed easily, even through your skin! Whether you’re starting a family or have one you want to keep healthy, our range of Redwin Vitamin E creams will keep your family fit as fiddles.
We also provide multivitamin tablets and vitamin organisers.
