Just a quickie to let you know I’ve added a new page about folate into the A-Z for you today. Why? Well, listen to this from recent findings…
…up to 60% of children (age 11-18), 56% of adults up to the age of 64 and 36% of adults over 65 were in the risk group for folate insufficiency. Even more concerning, out of all women in child-bearing age, a staggering 75% had inadequate folate levels for the prevention of foetal neural tube defects!
Eek! Have a read of how to get more folate in and why you should!
I’m gradually building the Vitamins and Minerals section of the website with info on some of the most important ones, or ones I get asked about a lot. So far, we have folate, magnesium and Vitamin D.
Hope it helps.
