- Double the NRV* (*NRV= Nutrient Reference Value) for vitamin D
The following list of allergens are excluded: Wheat, Barley, Soya, Eggs, Milk (and milk products), Lactose, Nuts, Sulphites, Celery, Fish, Shellfish, Yeast and Gluten containing ingredients.
StrongStart MVM® provides the Department of Health recommended 400µg of Folic Acid, alongside optimal levels of the other 23 vitamins and minerals required at this important time.
Official data on the diets of young women in the UK shows that for sections of this population their intake of some vitamins and minerals may fall below the NRV's*. Most surprising is the high proportion of these women (9 out of 10) whose diets are providing less than the NRV* for iron. The importance of this was highlighted in one large study that showed an inverse relationship between iron intake and infertility in women.
Several B vitamins are also at risk of falling below the NRV's, (which are arguably a long way short of the optimum levels). The only official recognition of these possible shortfalls is the focus by the Department of Health on folic acid. Clearly if folic acid supplementation is required then it seems likely that other B vitamins are at risk.

We believe supplements and all wellbeing products should use high quality, effective ingredients. All the products and brands we choose to sell meet our personal standard for quality and contain naturopathic and, where possible, organic ingredients.
The majority of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, however we do stock high quality, sustainable fish oils, which means our full range is not vegetarian. We clearly identify these in the product listings.
We stock cruelty-free brands whose products and ingredients are never tested on animals.
Choosing Quality Supplements
We always look for high bioavailability, which is a good indicator of the quality and how well a product is absorbed. The higher the bioavailability, the more of your chosen supplement will be absorbed by your body.
All too often we see cheap supplements, which although they may have the required dosage of the active ingredients, they may have a low bioavailability due to being more refined or combined with poor quality additional ingredients to form tablets, or even make them appear more appetising.
Additional ingredients in cheaper supplements are often unnecessary or impact the absorption of the supplement you take, so it is important not only to check the dosage of your chosen active ingredients, but also ensure any other ingredients are good for you, too. It is the additional ingredients that can often contain allergens or make a product non-vegan, for example.
