Taking supplements to better ones health have stirred up quite of few controversies over the past decades, but do they really help? Professor Lanham-New, Head of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Surrey explains the importance of how supplements are there to help when one does not have a chance to attain the type of vitamins needed throughout the day. Many more like Professor Lanham-New go on to explain which supplements can help one gain an edge to improving ones health.
- But now Public Health England has said all Britons should consider taking a supplement of Vitamin D daily, particularly in winter.
- Everyone should be taking Omega 3 in particular, says Matt Baker, as we get a lot of Omega 6 and Omega 9 in food.
