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.

I’ve been using Doctor Jeff’s services for around 12 months now. Very professional, yet highly personable. Very good results and professional timely service. Easily contactable via a variety of different channels for the patient’s convenience. All round excellent service, which I will definitely continue to use. I would have no hesitation referring other people in my family and network to this practice.
My treatment and care under Jeff Foster has been brilliant. Jeff is a very knowledgeable and informative professional. I have had many discussions and consultations with Jeff – he is a very down to earth person and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
