Expert warning over supplement that could ‘increase risk of heart disease’
Starting the day with a supplement has become a religious ritual for many. From vitamin C to D, the little immunity boosters are seeing increasing popularity.
When it comes to the specific nutrients, vitamin C and zinc are “commonly” available in a fizzy form. However, some fizzy supplements can raise your blood pressure. Dr Biggs warned: “Taking fizzy supplements could mean that you exceed your daily salt intake. Some well-known vitamin supplements that fizz contain 0.7grams of salt per tablet.”
If you’re not aware, the daily limit of salt you shouldn’t exceed is set at six grams, according to the NHS.
