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 function.
