Health & Nutrition News by Liz Bray

(Liz Bray is a BANT Registered Nutritional Therapist)

Warmer days are here at last and we’re moving away from Winter!

I wanted to share some health and nutrition information with you:

Vitamin D – The Sunshine Vitamin. Essential to support mental health, immunity, energy levels, hormone function, skin health and bone support. 

Your vitamin D levels will depend on how much time you’ve able to enjoy the sunshine, this is between March and October, in the Winter months, there are no vitamin D benefits from the sun.

A vitamin D test is a helpful method of finding out your levels. Available from your GP or from Body-Balance Nutrition clinic (please ask for details).

Also, vitamin K is an important vitamin to take in combination with vitamin D, for better absorption.

This vitamin D supplement is suitable for children and adults:

·         Gummie Bears high quality chewable supplement to support immunity from age 10:
