Halloween 2017

This Halloween we are loving...

Not Being White As A Ghost

If your normally rosy complexion is a pasty pale colour, low B12 may be the culprit. With a B12 deficiency, red blood cells are very fragile and easily broken, causing a release of bilirubin pigment that gives skin a yellow tinge. Vitamin B12 can be found in animal products such as meat, fish, milk and eggs, but you may be struggling to get enough in your daily diet, especially if you follow a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. This nutrient is notoriously difficult to absorb by the gut, however BetterYou B12 Boost Oral Spray (£11.95) will boost your energy levels so you don’t look like the bride of Dracula and aid concentration and memory to support a healthier you.

No Added Sugar
Glenisk, best known for their award-winning natural yogurts, have launched an Absolutely No Added Sugar organic baby yogurt range packed with calcium, protein and nutrients, making them a great first weaning food for babies aged six months plus. Aveen Bannon, registered dietician, commented on the importance of choice at the weaning stage, “The weaning period is seen as a ‘window of opportunity’ in that a variety of foods can be offered along with different tastes, textures, flavours along with rougher food consistencies in the later stages. The new baby range from Glenisk makes a perfect snack or works beautifully as a versatile ingredient in a whole range of super weaning recipes.” Available in yummy flavours such as banana & peach and strawberry & apple from Asda and Tesco stores now.
