Welcome – November 2021

At the time of us putting together our vitamin D feature in this issue of Natural Lifestyle, we received the news from Food Standards Scotland that it was launching a campaign urging the nation to take a vitamin D supplement this winter – confirming just how important this vitamin is, and how critical it is that we all take it.

Yet unfortunately, many of us aren’t, with data suggesting up to one in five Brits may be deficient in what is often termed the sunshine vitamin (on account that we make it on exposure to sunlight). And the worry is that, as we head towards winter, and with all the cold and ‘flu bugs around, not to mention Covid-19 still lingering, we could be more susceptible to illness. In short, all of us must be considering a vitamin D supplement at the very least though the winter – and this is endorsed by our panel of natural health experts, who offer their advice on page 26.

Away from our health advice, this issue is a special one as we can reveal the winner of the coveted Natural Lifestyle Retailer of the Year Awards, sponsored by Terranova. We were overwhelmed with the sheer number of votes you cast, with some incredible comments about your favourite health store, and the difference the shop has made to your life. More than 80 stores were nominated, which was eventually whittled down to five shortlisted stores, all very different in their business, but all with the same ethos of supporting people to better health. We are delighted to reveal the winners on page 16 and we thank you all for taking the time to vote.
