Just recently had a blood test & it showed low vitamin D, doctor has said 800g vit D everyday for life, regardless of summer or spring...
The sun is the best source, yes. It initiates a chemical process in the body to make Vitamin D . Followed by fish (cod liver oil) and Eggs. Vitamin D3 (naturally) only comes from sun exposure and animal products. Vitamin D2 is found in veg but isn't as efficient as D3.
Everybody is different and has different needs. Only way to tell what you need is a blood test.
Yes, around 80-90%. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6075634/ https://www.gov.uk/guidance/vitamin-d-deficiency-migrant-health-guide

Not a very good deal. In fact this isn't even the best Sudocrem deal on Amazon. You can get slightly more than double (125g) for £2.55, or more than 6 times this much (400g) for £5.
I've got 400g arriving this week from Amazon, costing £3.75. So this does not appear to be a great deal.
6 for £7.18 is a better offer -https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sudocrem-60-g-antiseptic-healing-cream-nappy-rash-eczema-surface-wounds-6-pack-ps718-or-ss-ps682-3745364 £2 at Wilko too - https://www.wilko.com/en-uk/sudocrem-antiseptic-healing-cream-60g/p/0251205
Went in for my appointment today, prior to this, I had confirmation along with a reminder email about my appointment. Woman at the counter seemed surprised about my booking, and mentioned something about them all being cancelled but still went in the back to check. I double checked my email just in case I missed the cancellation email, but nothing. Staff member told me they were all cancelled and I could check online to reschedule. Not a massive inconvenience for me, still fairly young and managed to pick up some groceries instead, but I would feel disappointed if someone spent money on a taxi e.c.t to turn up and find it was cancelled without notice.
Sorry to those people who have had problems with their appointment. I posted the deal in good faith and do not work for Lloyds Pharmacy or have any affiliation with them I have contacted them to see why they advertised the service but people had problems with it
Made an appointment and went today, was told to come back tomorrow as they didn't know about the appointment or have staff available!
I tried every single day at around 25 or 30 lloyds in my area, as I said they had spaces if I wanted to pay £10 but none for free tests
Out of curiosity, anyone here in their 20's who has had this done? Also, how can you cancel the appointment? I've looked at the confirmation emails and there's no email link to cancel which I find?
@Sleepseeker Do you want to answer this today or do you need more time? I have to write my draft soon. Thanks,
Thanks for that, I really appreciate that you have spent the effort to explain the anti-bacterial and anti-viral claims which were very vague and lacking in any detail on the website. I was also hoping you would explain a little further but don't worry I'll do that for you. ;). The treatment is called RUCO®-BAC AGP, a silver based solution with added anti-viral properties in June 2020 by a German chemist called the Rudolf Group. Sleep Seeker has no involvement with its development, they simply purchase the solution and apply it to their products. I have some bonus questions for @Sleepseeker. These are inherently difficult questions so I would fully expect you to ignore them and pretend you didn't see them. However, they are what a typical consumer should expect to know before they are able to make an informed decision. There are bonus points if any of them are answered. 1. The Chemist has published 3 sets of results summarising the anti-viral efficiency. They are for 2% solution in cotton and polyester (PES) and 0.5% solution in polyester. (They have not published 0.5% in cotton I presume the results were not very good). Unsurprisingly, the efficiently is determined by the % solution applied. What was the % of the RUCO®-BAC AGP solution Sleep Seeker / Slumberdown used to treat this product? 2. Which part of the pillow was treated? It is just the microfibre cover, just the hollowfibre filling / core or the entire cover and filling? 3. The Chemist has published results for PES and cotton fabrics. The pillow fibre is listed as microfibre and hollowfibre. How confident is Sleep Seeker that the protection is adequate when applied to this type of fibre? 4. We all know that it is more important that the pillow is actually effective in the real world rather than under lab conditions. There is nothing worst then buying a pillow that has claimed anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties to discover it has no real benefit. Has Sleep Seeker ran any real world tests to compare the efficiency of a treated pillow vs an untreated one? Are you able to publish any internal research on this? Thanks,
Hello, please be advised we have now uploaded a video to the product pages of all our Complete Protection range which explains the technology used in the treatment of these products. Thank you, SleepSeeker
But in your own words that's what you are aiming/claiming this product protects against that's what Anti means Against A lot of research and development has gone into the science behind the protection that is used on the fabric for these pillows, so please rest assured that the fact that they are anti-viral and anti-bacterial goes beyond just marketing. If you are not implying links to covid then why make the statement that you began the development of this Clean & Protect range at the 'onset' of the pandemic clearly other viruses exist but have done since well before the pandemic, but you or John cotton Ltd the parent company just decided to make these at the pandemics onset? Also why are we only finding out about these wonder products a year later? Did they make too many and nobody bought them so now they are going cheap? (confused) Yes i make a lot of points but its only what everyone else is thinking or wanting to know too If they are to buy them they need to know the facts
I've not received a reply yet so I've sent the customer service team another message.
Bleach is the one that always gets me! you literally throw it down the drain but it has a date on it (lol)
I aint got time to bleed!
I wonder how many small/medium businesses in the UK actually know where their first aid kit is. And of those who do, an even smaller percentage will record it in the log book. So i'm going to say it's very, very safe.
You realise things need a use by date on by LAW right? Doesn't mean they are useless afterwards. Bottled water that has been trickling down mountains for years and years have use by dates on. Dried pasta has use by dates on..
I think you're supposed order them before you need them (embarrassed)
Mine were Aug 2022 which I ordered a couple of weeks ago but only just turned up. I'd imagine yours will be the same batch as they look like they're out of stock of getting more in from the manufacturer to replenish.
We both use these and I use the younger one for the boy. 10 bought - hope the 'use by' is at least 6 months
