VӦOST urges British public to follow advice and eat a balanced diet this National Arthritis Week

Arthritis is a debilitating and degenerative condition that affects around 350 million people all over the world[1]. It causes sufferers extensive pain, discomfort and even distress. Arthritis often goes unnoticed by others, but is felt constantly by sufferers.

Although maintaining an active lifestyle and eating a healthy diet is imperative for all, VÖOST, the great-tasting vitamins fresh from Australian shorelines, is highlighting the increased importance to follow these guidelines for those who suffer from arthritis. A balanced diet helps people to maintain a healthy weight, which in turn, reduces the stress on joints. And it is stress on joints that can be the cause of some of the pain for sufferers.

Thomas Siebel, Managing Director at VÖOST, said, “Healthy, balanced diets are imperative for everyone; but those who suffer from medical problems can benefit greatly. Arthritis is an extremely common illness, and although there is no cure as such, a healthy and active lifestyle can help you to manage some of the discomfort[2]. In fact maintaining a healthy diet is essential for everyone to ensure they feel their best.”

The benefits to all of following advice and eating five portions of fruit and vegetables per day, along with oily fish, protein and dairy are widespread. These key food groups provide vitamins, minerals and nutrients people need to function normally, yet there are still millions of people worldwide who do not get the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals.

Arthritis sufferers, and particularly those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, can often find they feel extremely tired a lot of the time. This can be made worse if they also have anaemia. Therefore it is recommended that sufferers eat foods rich in Iron and Vitamin C[3].

Iron and Vitamin C are important for everyone; Iron helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue, while Vitamin C helps the body to absorb it. A healthy diet should provide all the nutrients the body needs, but with busy lifestyles taking over, VÖOST’s Vitamin C or Multivitamin offers a tasty back up.

National Arthritis Week will take place between 12 – 19 October and is designed to highlight the effects of one of the biggest, but silent, causes of pain and disability in the UK.

The great-tasting VÖOST vitamins have been designed by a specialist naturopath. They contain no added dairy, lactose or yeast so are ideal for those following specific diets. A Multivitamin is one of the most popular supplements, helping to meet people’s needs in one simple glass. However for more specific requirements, the company has a range of vitamins and minerals, including Calcium + Vitamin D, Magnesium and Vitamins B, D and C.
