NELL MCANDREW IS BOUNCING BACK

Nell McAndrew is well known for her ultimate fitness levels and for having a fantastic body as a result.  Having recently given birth to a baby girl and already having a son Devon, Nell knows all too well about the pressures of post-baby body confidence, having the time to fit in her love for running and fitness and tackling feeling constantly tired. Any new mum can relate to feeling tired, after all, your body is recuperating from the incredible physical challenge of pregnancy and childbirth, while also caring for a newborn that needs feeding, nappy changes, and hands-on attention around the clock.

Nell McAndrew says: ‘knowing that many sleepless nights were ahead of me I prepared myself as best as I could. I knew that not only having disturbed sleep, but breastfeeding would leave me with very little energy, so I take Spatone® natural iron supplements to help give my energy levels a boost, taking a sachet a day and plan on continuing to do so. I also try and focus on eating as many fresh foods as possible, starting my day with a hot water with fresh lemon juice squeezed in to it to cleanse my system. I've also being trying to eat lots of protein, quite often I make scrambled eggs with one egg yolk and 4 or 5 whites, with baked beans on wholemeal toast - cheap, quick and easy to prepare for any new mum.’

There could be many reasons for fatigue post birth, so consult your doctor if you are struggling with feeling constantly tired. Low iron levels are a common cause which can add to fatigue as many women experience lower iron levels during pregnancy and child birth can further reduce iron levels. In this case a natural iron supplement may be beneficial, such as Spatone.

Spatone contains Spatone spa water sourced from the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia National Park - which can help top up your iron levels whilst causing fewer of the unpleasant side effects i oftenexperienced with conventional iron supplements. Generally, iron is a very difficult mineral for the body to absorb. However, the iron naturally present in Spatone has been shown to be easily absorbed, with up to 40% bioavailability [i] i , compared to 5- 20% from food and other iron supplements. There is also Spatone® Apple which is simply Spatone spa water, with a delicious apple taste and added Vitamin C, to aid the absorption of iron.

 

Available from Boots, £9.95 for 28 sachets (4 weeks supply). For more info visit www.spatone.com
