This disease of an allergic nature is especially common in modern dermatology, has no age restrictions. Psoriasis is the pathological condition of the dermis, when the natural processes of differentiation and cell division are disturbed. This form of dermatosis is prone to chronic course, has an autoimmune origin. On the skin, first appear characteristic rashes, which eventually turn into plaques with clear boundaries. Each exacerbation is complemented by the sensation of itching, flaking of the upper layer of the epidermis.

What vitamins are needed for psoriasis

Daily intake of multivitamin complexes is necessary for skin renewal. It is important to understand that the systematic overestimation of the dosage will not accelerate the overall therapeutic effect, but only aggravate the patient's condition, provoke hypervitaminosis. When choosing vitamins for skin diseases, it is important to take into account age, body sensitivity, drug interaction, and the final effect. For an accelerated result, it is desirable to administer drugs in the form of intramuscular injections, with a planned approach and prevention it is better to use capsules, tablets.

What vitamins to drink

If used to treat vitamin complexes, it is important to determine the form of release. More often, patients choose capsules and tablets that are supposed to be taken orally. Classification of representatives of the specified pharmacological group provides water-soluble and fat-soluble compounds. In the first case, we are talking about ascorbic and folic acid, representatives of group B (coenzyme), which doctors prefer to administer intravenously and intramuscularly. These are drugs Cocarboxylase, Nicotinamide.

Fat-soluble vitamins drink with psoriasis is better in the form of tablets, for example, it can be lecithin, retinol, calciferol, tocopherol.

Water-soluble compounds are best administered intravenously and intramuscularly to accelerate the penetration of nutrients into the systemic circulation. The effect of medicines of this form of release is swift, and improvements in general well-being are observed after the first procedure. Vitamins to prick with psoriasis can be with other medicines, but first discuss the issue of drug interactions with your doctor.

When there is a violation of the metabolic processes of skin cells, doctors prescribe the following organic compounds, which are necessarily included in the composition of numerous multivitamin complexes:

Folic acid in psoriasis

This compound provides the synthesis of amino acids, forms proteins, as a valuable building material of cells. Due to its effect, an accelerated process of regeneration of damaged skin areas occurs, and the structure of the dermis itself changes. For psoriasis, folic acid is an auxiliary treatment, the permissible daily dose is 2–5 mg per day, and only the attending physician can correct the indication.

When this form of dermatosis develops, such a prescription is irreplaceable, however, the therapeutic effect is observed only under the influence of ultraviolet radiation.

The role of vitamin therapy for psoriasis

Everyone knows that vitamins take an active part in many biochemical processes of the body.

To choose the means and the dosage should be a doctor, only a specialist can determine the type and dose of the necessary drugs.

Vitamins for psoriasis perform the following functions:

  1. Normalization of the cells of the dermis.
  2. The establishment of metabolic processes.
  3. Saturation of skin cells with oxygen.
  4. Regulation of keratin content.
  5. Normal development of joints and bones.

All vitamin preparations can be divided into two groups: water soluble and lipid soluble. Water-soluble ingredients are often taken for psoriasis. This includes folic acid, ascorbic, vitamins of group B. Means are introduced by injection.

Vitamins A, E and D belong to fat-soluble vitamins. It also includes vitamin-like compound lecithin. In psoriasis, these drugs are used in the form of capsules, since the injection with the help of injections can provoke quite painful sensations and infiltration in the injection area.

Next, find out which vitamins for psoriasis have the most effective effect and their detailed effect on the body.

Vitamins of group A and E

Retinol (vitamin A) plays a very important role in getting rid of the main symptoms of psoriasis. He takes part in the processes of karatogenesis, which is important for the normal synthesis and development of dermal cells. Also, this process is necessary for healthy hair and nails. With a deficiency of retinol, the skin becomes dry and flaky, the nails are weak, the hair grow dull and fall out. With psoriatic lesions, vitamin A is necessary for the synthesis of proteins and lipids. It also regulates the exchange processes well. The forms of release of retinol are usually oil, tablets, injection. Also in medical practice, retinoids are often used - they are artificial substitutes for this vitamin. They have an excellent effect on the protective functions of the body, slow down the excessively fast cell division process.

In most cases, retinol is administered in the form of droplets that have an oily base. Take them after meals after 15-20 minutes. Popular drugs include the following:

Calciferol is available in the form of capsules and cream (Calcipotriol) for external application. The course of treatment is selected by the doctor. Doses and duration of administration depend on the individual characteristics of the patient and the course of the pathology.

The role of lecithin

Reviews of the effectiveness of vitamins in the treatment of psoriasis

Olga, 44 years old. “I've been trying to get rid of psoriasis for about 10 years. I was always sure that skin pathology should be “attacked” by external means - ointments, lotions, creams. I was very surprised when I learned that vitamins can have a direct effect on the course of the disease. About 3 months I accept the vitamin complex Revit. The skin condition has improved markedly, the red spots have become much less. Now I also plan to review the diet and support the results of treatment with a vitamin diet. ”

Oleg, 34 years old. “I’m trying to cope with psoriasis from school. Any type of drug treatment gives a short-term result: the disease recedes literally for 1-2 months and again makes itself felt. Recently I got an appointment with a specialist who prescribed not typical tablets, creams and ointments, but vitamins and a therapeutic diet. I have been drinking vitamins A and E for a little more than a month. I have completed a course of injections of vitamins of group B. I am very pleased with the good effect. The spots on the body are almost completely gone. I plan to continue using vitamins in the future. ”

Vitamins for psoriasis provide substantial support to the human body in the treatment of skin pathology. Despite the apparent 100% usefulness, the intake of these substances should be coordinated with the doctor. Overdose can lead to sad consequences and provoke complications of psoriasis.

The substance is a kind of regulator of phosphate and calcium metabolism, so that it has a positive effect on the nails, as well as the skin. In the treatment of vulgar (plaque) psoriasis, vitamin D3 is prescribed, which helps if the plaques cover no more than 40% of the body.
  3. Vitamin E. An important element that is a powerful natural antioxidant. The main property of this substance: stimulation of cellular metabolism, during which the skin is renewed. Vitamin E is rarely given at injections, since such injections are extremely painful for humans. The substance is contained in various oils and is produced in the form of an oil solution, which must be taken orally.
  4. Vitamin B. It promotes skin healing and a positive effect on the overall condition of the body. This water-soluble element is involved in the most important exchanges: fat, carbohydrate and protein. Contained in bread, meat, fish and various cereals. When dermatitis is mandatory prescribed vitamin B12, which has a positive effect on the nervous system.
