  • Iron and the Irony of Popeye

    Iron is a mineral which is required for the production of haemoglobin in the body, essential for carrying oxygen to the cells in our body. Without adequate levels, you may feel tired, look pale and be irritable.

Vitamin D3 in particular is essential for bone health, with low levels linked to osteomalacia, the adult form of rickets where bones become soft and painful. This vitamin has also shown beneficial roles in other health outcomes, including reducing the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease and autoimmune diseases. It is estimated that 1 in 5 adults in the UK could be at risk of low vitamin D status.
