Why we need vitamins more than ever before

With so many choices on our shelves, it’s difficult to know which supplements are best for you.

Poor diet

Eating the same foods every day or a diet lacking in variety can mean your body isn't getting the nutrition it needs.

Vitamins and minerals are essential for our bodies to perform optimally. Nutrient intake takes on even greater significance at times of physical strain such as pregnancy or ill health.


Anaemia is far more common than you may think. Globally it affects 1.62 billion people (World Health Organisation). Being deficient in a lack of healthy red blood cells means that the body is not getting sufficient B12 or Vitamin C.

Brittle hair and nails

Collagen is the protein responsible for skin elasticity and the development of strong nail growth, but it needs support of vitamins too.

Vitamin C is an essential partner for collagen to support skin renewal while biotin, also known as Vitamin B7, helps the body to convert nutrients into energy. Consuming 30mg of biotin a day has been clinically tested to strengthen the quality of hair and nails.

Scaly patches of skin and dandruff

Sebeorrheic dermatitis and dandruff are part of the same group and can affect the oil production within the body.

Foods rich in niacin, riboflavin and pryridoxine all contribute to a balance within the skin cells and help sebum to keep skin hydrated.

Our range of nutritional supplements includes, Green Magic, a powerful, multi-award-winning blend of superfoods in powder or capsule form.
