Feeling tired, sluggish and lacking energy has become the norm for so many women across the UK. With iron deficiency being the number one nutritional disorder in the Western world and 1 in 4 women with a low iron intake, it’s no surprise that coping with the demands of today’s hectic lifestyles is making them feel utterly drained.
The launch of a new liquid iron supplement, Blueiron, could provide the lift they are after. Each bottle of Blueiron – a cult Scandinavian product – is bursting with over 50 hand picked, wild blueberries, rich in immune-boosting vitamin C, and fresh mineral water. It is a source of powerful natural antioxidants and also contains Vitamin B12, Folic acid and Zinc to help boost immune defenses, along with added Biotin to contribute to healthy hair and skin, and Vitamin E to help protect cells from ageing oxidative stress.
What’s more, it tastes great and, unlike many traditional iron supplements, Blueiron is gentle on the digestive system resulting in fewer of the side effects most commonly associated with iron supplements, such as constipation. Thanks to an exclusive patented micro-encapsulated delivery system called ab-fortis, the body cleverly absorbs only the amount of iron it needs with the potent blueberries enhancing the body’s absorption of the mineral. Ab-fortis ensures the minimal release of iron during its storage, which prevents the classical side effects usually seen with iron supplements including a metallic taste and abdominal pain
How contaminated is your toothbrush?
There are more than 10 million bacteria on your toothbrush right now according to a recent study at the University of Manchester.
That means there are considerably more bacteria on your toothbrush than your average toilet seat – which has 50 bacteria per square inch 1 , or average public lavatory floor – which has 2 million bacteria per square inch 2 .
Steripod is designed to safeguard a toothbrush, protecting it against environmental contamination, keeping it clean and smelling fresh, for up to three months using a patented design with “active vapours” – a laboratory formulated thymol compound. Thymol is used in many mouthwashes and oral anti-septic’s. The compound is encapsulated in plastic with small holes which allows the thymol vapours to escape and protectively encircle the toothbrush bristles. The product has been specially designed so that air can circulate freely which means your toothbrush can dry naturally – contaminants require a moist atmosphere to multiply most effectively, so the drier your brush, the lower the risk of bad bugs on your bristles.
Unlike other toothbrush sanitizers, Steripod does not require batteries or cables, meaning that it’s easy to protect your brush wherever it is; at home, on holiday, or out and about. Nor does the active ingredient actually touch the bristles so you are not a risk of ingesting unwelcome chemicals.
There are a wide number of people for whom a Steripod will offer an attractive prospect; people travelling for work or pleasure; festival goers, kids going off to camp as well as the increasing number of us, aware of the health and aesthetic benefits of regular brushing like to pop a toothbrush in our gym, hand or wash bags. For anyone undergoing orthodontic treatment, carrying a brush to clean the teeth after meals is imperative. For all these, and many others, Steripod is ideal to ensure their toothbrush remains hygienic and fresh.
So other than ensuring you have a Steripod, what’s the best way to keep your toothbrush clean and fresh? Dentist Mervin Druin gives his top tips to ensure your brush remains as hygienic as possible.
1. Don’t flush where you brush
If you store your toothbrush near your toilet make sure you close the lid when you flush to minimise the dispersal of contaminated water droplets.
2. Rinse thoroughly after use
Rinse your toothbrush thoroughly under running water after use, making sure that all toothpaste has been removed. Shake off as much excess water as possible.
3. Store it upright
Store your brush in an upright position – never in a bathroom cabinet where air cannot circulate as this could promote bacterial growth.
4. Replace your toothbrush regularly
Make sure to replace your toothbrush and Steripod every 3 months – buy them at the same time. If like many of us you need a reminder www.steripod.co.uk can send you a gentle email nudge every 80 days to remind you that your pod and your brush need an update!
And if you’ve been suffering with a cold or flu it’s a good idea to replace your toothbrush rather than reinfecting yourself.
5. Don’t share it
Never be tempted to share a toothbrush, even with your loved one. And avoid contact with other toothbrushes that may be stored in the same vicinity.
