About

Recent studies on health personnel in Colombia have evidenced the considerable increase in the levels of stress and anxiety, among other psychological disorders, as a product of the COVID-19 pandemic that is being experienced since 2019 and that implies a greater demand for attention from the affected citizens, with the consequent work overload and tension due to the risk of contagion. Thus, the present work will allow the generation of new knowledge in relation to the benefits of Vitamin N therapy in Colombia; which can contribute quickly and effectively to the reduction of stress levels, anxiety, insomnia, and depression in individuals, when compared with conventional interventions and result in possible benefits such as the reduction of health problems such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and diseases associated with the immune system.
