Recent research has shown that while many adults are nutrient deficient, women in particular are in far more danger of suffering the effects of this.
Having a diet that is rich in nutrients is essential for a healthy life. However so many factors conspire to make this really difficult to achieve. Taking the pill or HRT will lower levels of vitamin C and folate plus various reducing diets may mean you may be missing vital food groups while the quality of our food has reduced for a variety of factors including farming and transportation of food.
Perhaps even more pertinent in the action of stress on our bodies. Present circumstances are anxiety inducing. Stress depletes the body of vital nutrients.

Alive has two new products in its extensive range: Alive Ultra Wholefood Plus and Nature's Way Fortify – friendly bacteria soft gels which are sugar-free, gluten-free and suitable for vegans.
Suzie Sawyer, Clinical Nutritionist for Alive!, makers of evidence backed range of supplements, says:
"You should definitely take the Alive! Ultras in the morning with breakfast to get full benefit from the energising nutrients. Best not to take in the evening as it can disturb sleep in some people. And best to take it roughly the same time in the morning but timing is not critical if breakfast timing is not always quite the same. Fortify can be taken at the same time or any time as it’s not dependent on production of stomach acid."
