Need a little lift? 

As we all get stuck into what 2022 may bring, we know it can be tricky to keep on top of those habits that leave us feeling and looking our very best. 

Last week, we gave you our top recommendations on how you can feed your family and stay hydrated for less but sometimes it helps to have a little bit of extra assistance to meet our body’s needs. 

While most of us should get all the nutrients we need through a varied and balanced diet, it is increasingly common for many of us to be slightly low in some key areas.  

Vitamin D ​– It can be easy to stay on top of this vitamin during the sunny summer months, but harder during a cold and dark winter. It’s recommended to have 10 micrograms a day to stay feeling your best.

Iron – Important for making red blood cells, low iron levels can make you feel tired and sluggish. You can absorb iron in red meat as well as beans, nuts, and fortified cereals but - as men need 8.7mg a day and women a whopping 14.8mg a day - supplements can sometimes be necessary. 

Calcium ​– While it’s widely known that this mineral keeps our teeth and bones healthy, did you know that calcium also helps regulate muscle contractions? Good sources of calcium include dairy products, leafy greens, and some types of small fish but you should be consuming approximately 700mg a day (up to a maximum of 1,500mg a day).

Vitamin C ​– This vitamin protects and helps maintain the cells in your body. Lack of vitamin C can lead to scurvy. So, if you aren’t regularly eating your 5-a-day (or struggle to absorb it from your diet), you should consider taking 40mg every day.

Some vitamins and minerals can be absorbed on an empty stomach while combination multivitamins may often need dietary fat to be absorbed properly. That’s why it’s often best to take a multivitamin alongside, or after, a meal or snack.
