Many people find it hard to maintain the right balance of nutrients in the modern world; recently the Royal College of Paediatrics warned that “up to 25% of UK children are Vitamin D deficient”*. Deficiencies in vitamins or minerals are linked to a wide range of common health complaints, although it can be hard to get everything you need from your diet – and this is where our supplements come in! We’ve been blogging about our supplements for some time, and below are a few links to articles you may have missed!
We stock a wide range of supplements from the world-renowned Solgar, Viridian, A. Vogel, Nature’s Aid and Nature’s Plus, all of which have a long history of providing cost-effective and high quality nutritional supplements, most of which are organic, vegetarian and vegan. Also noteworthy are Lamberts Healthcare – of which we are the exclusive stockist in Bradford (http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/119/lamberts-healthcare-limited-sold-exclusively-in-bradford-at-shipley-healthstore).
“All in one” multivitamin supplements are getting more and more popular, and can be very cost effective (http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/95/natures-plus-source-of-life-gold) although sometimes it can be more useful to tailor your supplement intake to your specific problems – high levels of fatigue, for instance, are linked with low levels of the B Vitamins which help release the energy from your food and B Vitamin capsules could be all you need.
Vitamins other nutritional supplements may help you if you’re on a program to detox yourself – see the Shipley Health Store guide to find some detox-specific supplements (http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/183/detox). If you’re planning to take probiotics, or want to take good care of your “good gut bacteria”, you should prime your gut with prebiotics. Read about the Molkosan prebiotic here: http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/184/get-a-better-gut-feeling-with-molkosan.
We also have a wide range of different formulations devised for specific conditions (or life phases!), like the menopause (http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/152/the-all-new-botanical-female-complex-for-the-menopause), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/168/an-amazing-new-treatment-of-irritable-bowel-syndrome-ibs) or those who experience joint pains (http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/73/tired-aching-joints).
Pure vitamin supplements aren’t the only way to go, as preparations derived from superfoods or microbial sources will contain a wide range of nutrients and minerals. The Viridian Soul Food blend is a fantastic example of a supplement which has been tailored to assist your body with a variety of functions (http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/187/soul-food). Some of Viridian’s other supplements are laid out here: http://shipleyhealthstore.co.uk/news/172/new-viridian-nutrition-supplements-in-store-today.
Don’t forget if you come into the store we can answer your queries – our shop is staffed by a herbalist, nutritionist and a former nurse, all of whom can offer specific advice for many common health complaints.
