Health concerns associated with the lack of Vitamin D in foodstuffs has led to a relaunch of Mighty Muesli, a popular wheat free breakfast cereal containing over twenty nutritious ingredients.
Juliette Cattell, owner and developer of Mighty Muesli, has identified low intake of Vitamin D as contributing to the potential threat to women going through menopause of developing osteoporosis. In addition, growing children are also a key age group under threat with a lack of Vitamin D associated with rickets and other early life poor bone structure development.
Juliette Cattell said: “Vitamin D is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the body and it can be synthesised by sunlight striking the skin. I have been sitting in the sun a little more recently after realising that I am a potential statistic for the lack of sufficient vitamin D. In the UK lack of Vitamin D intake is posing a real threat to millions of people and disappointing rainy summers aren’t helping.
“As a result I have decided to add Vitamin D as a natural supplement to our mueslis and porridge range. Although my mantra has always been that Mighty Muesli was 100% natural and that all the vitamins and minerals were naturally occurring in the ingredients, I have made an exception of Vitamin D as it doesn’t occur in many foods.
So for those really concerned about their health, they can now avoid eating cod liver oil or sardines for breakfast and start their day with 20% of their RDA of Vitamin D by eating a really healthy breakfast cereal.
