Smorgasbord Health Column – Nutrients that work better with others (Part Two) – Iron and Vitamin C and B2 by Sally Cronin

The body requires a wide range of nutrients to obtain what it needs, and up until the food industry began importing foreign produce and canning foods, we would have eaten seasonally. Do you get into May or June and start to crave crisp salad leaves, tomatoes, cucumber and spring onions? Do you get to October and suddenly want to dive into root vegetable stews and soups and mashed swede or parsnips with a pudding of berries on porridge? That is your ancestral instinct for seasonal foods.

Now that we can pick and choose our food to buy rather than gather… it does mean that sometimes we are not getting the right combination of nutrients together to be effective. Some nutrients require other vitamins or minerals to be absorbed by the body and this applies not only to the food that we consume but any supplements that we take.

Last week I looked at the synergistic relationship between Calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D and K2 for both bone and immune system health.

This week it is the turn of Iron and Vitamin C and also Vitamin B2 to ensure that the mineral is absorbed efficiently.
