Following today’s news coverage on the Cochrane review, Boots UK Ltd would like to reassure customers that there is a huge, and growing, body of evidence to support the use of vitamin and mineral supplements in helping to maintain health and well-being.

“Vitamin supplements are designed to help support the diet and maintain health. They are supplements, not medicines. According to a recent dietary survey, less than a third of men and women consume the recommended 5 or more portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Taking vitamin and mineral supplements is one way to help correct this dietary deficiency and may help you maintain good health.” Vicky Pennington, Boots senior Nutritionist

“Boots vitamins and minerals are made to the highest standards and are formulated according to the latest scientific research. As experts in everyday health, we will continue to provide the UK with our very best in vitamin and mineral supplements, enabling people to help maintain their own – and their families’ – good health.” Nick Bennett, Boots Formulations Expert
