VITAMIN D.

Vitamin D, together within phosphorus and calcium is crucial as it is required to develop and maintain strong bones, muscle and teeth. Also, a systematic review published by the BMJ in 2017 examining a total of 11,321 participants has shown that vitamin D plays a role in supporting our immune system. .

However, research has shown that a lot of us in the UK are not getting adequate levels of vitamin D. Most of our vitamin D comes from the sun, which we can safely expose ourselves to during these spring months ... just remember that sunscreen! However, if you are self-isolating or do not have access to a balcony or garden within your household, you should consider supplementing yourself with 10 micrograms of vitamin D daily (if you’re an adult or child above the age of 1. .

We can also get some of our vitamin D from certain foods such as salmon, dairy products and red meat. However, as mentioned before, most of our vitamin D comes from sun exposure. Hence supplementation is advised.

STRETCH FOR THE NHS.

The Nutritank team ladies ( Ally, Juliet & Tally) got involved in @hotpodyoga #stretchforthenhs class this morning, raising money for our wonderful and admirable NHS colleagues. 🏥 .
.

Yoga is a fantastic mind-body practise and research shows that the benefits of yoga include: improved flexibility 🧘‍♀️ , stress relief, improved quality of sleep 😴 and a potential tool for natural pain relief in chronic pain conditions (McClafferty, 2017). .
.
It is a wonderful practise to relieve anxiety both during uncertain times such as this #covid_19 period and to incorporate more generally in day-to-day life.
.
.
Check out @hotpodyoga to donate and do the class (which they have put onto their Instagram stories). .

Really happy to announce that I am officially Dr Iain Broadley MBChB, BSc! Graduating last Friday - a surreal but cool experience as the graduation was virtual over a conference call with all of my Covid 2020 cohort of classmates whilst sat on my sofa at home with my family. .
.
This has been a long but incredible journey; with 3 attempts over the years to get into medical school, a 3 year BSc degree, graduating from that then working and now graduating after a 4 year degree at Bristol medical school. .
.
Amazing to see where @nutritank_official has come from to where it is today, looking back on where this path has taken me has been very special - big up to my co-founder Ally 💪🏼 👥 and all of our team current and past 🥳. .
.
So thankful to all my amazing family, friends, love ones & teachers who have supported me the whole way, I am so grateful 🙏. .
.
Always remembering those who are not with us to see this occasion but knowing they have made an impact on who I am (we are) today and would be proud to see (me / us) here.
.
Plans to enter the NHS as a Foundation year doctor very soon.
.
Graduation attire created using:

IBS AWARENESS MONTH.

Amongst other things, April marks Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness month. IBS is life-long condition, affecting 7-10% of the global population. Symptoms include diarrhoea, constipation, bloating and stomach cramps.

The aetiology of IBS is poorly understood and is still being researched. However, there have been some recent theories suggesting that the microbiome-gut-brain axis could be responsible. Signalling along this axis is controlled by fibres that run to and from the CNS structures and smooth muscle in the small intestine. These reciprocal fibres mean that there is a feedback loop between the gut and the brain.

Our gut microbiome is a crucial feature of our intestines too. This intestinal lining is where immune responses maintain gut integrity, protecting the lining and ensuring that the microbes can flourish and perform their symbiotic functions.

In IBS, there is a change/imbalance in the microbiome, known as dysbiosis. As the relationship between the gut and the brain is bidirectional, this dysbiosis could impact brain function in relation to the gut-brain axis, altering it. Dysbiosis can be caused by a number of factors, including stress, a high sugar diet, alcohol misuse, GI infections, antibiotic overuse or a high protein diet.

Whilst research on the gut microbiome is still ongoing, studies have noted a degree of dysbiosis in many IBS patients (it actually seems to be a key denominator in many gut disorders) and so there is most likely a correlation there. Scientists are currently working towards defining the mode by which these unhappy microbes could lead to IBS. Once some light has been shed on this, we might be one step closer to finding a cure for IBS.

In the meantime, make sure you are taking care of your own gut microbes. Have a look at our Food highlight for some inspiration!
