Food for thought

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Food -

MORE than a third of Ir­ish peo­ple (35%) rely on sup­ple­ments to make up their daily nu­tri­tional re­quire­ments rather than eat­ing foods that are nat­u­rally rich in vi­ta­mins. Re­search by Mon­aghan Mush­rooms also shows that a quar­ter of us don’t know how many vi­ta­mins, and in par­tic­u­lar vi­ta­min D, we should be tak­ing daily. Di­eti­tian Sarah Keogh said: “So many nat­u­ral fruits and veg­eta­bles, in­clud­ing mush­rooms, are ex­cel­lent sources of es­sen­tial vi­ta­mins and min­er­als.” Mon­aghan Mush­rooms has just launched Im­mune closed-cup mush­rooms, on sale in Dunnes Stores, which are high in im­mune-sys­tem-boost­ing vi­ta­min D and se­le­nium.
