New year, new look

Spatone liquid iron is rolling out new packaging across the whole range of its products, moving away from the current orange colourway to a vivid blue. To ensure customers understand Spatone’s benefits, “gentle” and “easily absorbed” are written clearly on the front of the pack to appeal to all of the target markets, from pregnant women to busy people and athletes, says manufacturer Nelsons. Generally, iron can be a difficult mineral for the body to absorb, yet the iron naturally present in Spatone in a liquid formulation has been shown to be easily absorbed, with up to 40 per cent bioavailability, adds the company.

Commuter cough

New research unveiled by Jakemans has revealed that 66 per cent of people are worried about catching a sore throat or cough on their daily commute, rising to 77 per cent in London. The study also found that four in five people experienced a winter illness last year and that over a third put this down to the commute. To soothe the commute this winter, Jakemans’ manufacturer LanesHealth recommends using the brand’s menthol confectionery to help ease symptoms of a sore throat and keep the airways clear. Jakemans is now available in a handy stick-pack format in the three most popular Jakemans flavours: Throat & Chest, Honey & Lemon and Cherry.
