I realise this is the sort of question that gets asked all the time and I know I have read excellent and informative replies to threads even quite recently, but I am struggling to find the information again now that it's directly relevant to me! I wonder if it would be possible for this sort of info to be pinned so that it doesn't get lost in threads? It must be very frustrating for our experts repeating themselves over and over!
I have just got my results back from Medichecks and I think I need to supplement B12 and Folate, and possibly Fit D and Ferratin (I'm 43, still menstruating) My diet is good enough that I shouldn't be needing supplements in an ideal world, so I have to accept that absorption must be an issue. I've been in the sun a lot over the last few weeks, and the Fit D result was identical to one take last Spring which surprised me. I'm pretty low gluten already, but I'm going to try Gluten free. Please could I have some direction on how to go about supplementing. Which vitamins can be taken sublingually? How do I know what dose to take and what brands/websites do people recommend?
Thanks in advance xx
