Unique range of ‘Halal approved’ vitamins launched at Arab Health

A unique range of vitamin and mineral
supplements, which have been specially approved by the Halal Food
Authority, will be launched at Arab Health 2009, the world’s largest
healthcare event in the Middle East.

At the event, UK based Principle
Healthcare will be showcasing their new Halal supplement range, which
comes in four different types – Omega 3, Vitamin C, Calcium and Vitamin
D, and Iron.

One of the world leaders in vitamins
and supplements, Principle Healthcare will also be showcasing their
‘Lifestyle’ range which, available in eight different varieties, has
been formulated to meet specific lifestyle requirements, such as
pregnancy, vegetarians and joint-care.

Included in the supplements is BioCalth
– a clinically proven, patented calcium formulation, which through its
unique ingredient – L-threonate – has a superior absorption rate to
other calcium supplements.  It also encourages the formation of
collagen and cartilage, strengthening bones and increasing bone density.

Martin Hendron, Export Manager of
Principle Healthcare said: “We have worked closely with the Halal Food
Authority to develop this range of vitamins and we are delighted to be
able to launch these unique supplements at Arab Health”

“Taking supplements can help people in
many ways including preventing vitamin and mineral deficiencies,
providing amounts of nutrients larger than the diet can provide and
also protecting against future disease.  We are aware that different
people have different needs so we are therefore continually developing
our range to reflect this.”

Arab Health 2009 will take place at the
Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 26th to 29th
January. To visit Principle Healthcare at the exhibition visit hall 7,
stand A19.

Additional information about Halal approved vitamin range

Omega 3 – Omega 3 fatty acids belong to the group termed Essential
Fatty Acids (EFAs). They are considered essential to human health. They
are believed to help improve concentration, blood pressure, brain
function and many other general and specific health conditions such as
ADHA.  As their name suggests EFAs are essential in the diet, however
unfortunately they are often lacking in processed and convenience foods
which instead are rich in less beneficial fats. EFAs are necessary due
to their specific structures that the body uses to help build up cell
membranes, EFAs therefore help maintain normal skin, healthy eyes and
proper brain development, as well as having a role to play in the
regulation inflammation and hormone balance and are needed for calcium
absorption therefore assist in bone maintenance.

Vitamin C – The body cannot make or
store Vitamin C, so you need to get your supply from your diet on a
daily basis.  This chewable tablet provides your body with a daily dose
of Vitamin C to help maintain a healthy immune system, and healthy
teeth, gums and skin. It also acts as an antioxidant in the body
protecting the cells from damage caused by free radicals.

Calcium – Calcium plays a role in
muscle contractions, blood-clotting and nerve functioning. Vitamin D
assists in maintaining a healthy immune system. About 99% of the
calcium in the body is in the bones and teeth and 1% is in the blood,
muscles, and other soft tissues (such as nerves, organs, etc.) This 1%
plays a major role in our health.

Vitamin D – Vitamin D, the sunlight
vitamin, helps the body to absorb and utilise the calcium, however,
some people find it difficult to absorb sufficient vitamin D from being
outdoors, especially if there is limited skin contact.

Iron – Iron has an important role as an
oxygen carrier to the blood and also assists in the formation of the
blood cells.  As well as aiding the normal functioning of the immune
system, it is also essential for blood and cognitive development and
