(ORDO NEWS) — A fairly common symptom of coronavirus infection is a sudden loss of not only taste, but also smell. Most patients face this. It is worth noting that for some people everything returns to normal in just a few days, while others suffer for months and cannot do anything about it.
Reported by The Daily Mail.
Experts from the University of East Anglia conducted a study, during which it was found that the sense of smell can be restored by using special drops with the addition of vitamin A. Similar results were obtained after scientists observed volunteers for 12 weeks. They were getting vitamin A all this time.
Exactly the same conclusions were made by experts from Germany, who were studying the beneficial effects of vitamin A. It plays a very important role in the restoration of the nasal mucosa and helps to eliminate all sorts of damage. At the moment, new volunteers are being recruited for a second experiment, with the help of which it will be possible to once again confirm or deny the effectiveness of this vitamin.
If the results are confirmed, then a huge number of patients who suffer from anosmia after coronavirus will be able to finally solve their problem. To do this, they will use suitable nasal drops that contain sufficient vitamin A.
This essential vitamin is responsible for numerous functions in the human body. It contains retinol, which is a structural component of cell membranes. Additionally, it has antioxidant properties. With a lack of vitamin A, vision begins to deteriorate, there are problems with wetting the cornea.
