Derek Coates founded Healthspan in Guernsey in 1996, with a firm focus on quality, value for money and unsurpassed customer service. Ever since, Healthspan has remained at the forefront of advancements in the world of health and nutrition, while remaining committed to its founding principles.


The beginning

Derek Coates founds Healthspan with just six products in the range. Over twenty years on, these products - and many more - and our core beliefs remain the same. Our commitment to quality and value is still going strong.


Here to help

Our Call Centre opens in Gosport. We now employ over 100 nutrition advisors who remain at the heart of our business and are on call seven days a week. If you have specific product questions or just want to speak to an agent, simply call 0800 73 123 77. They'll be happy to help.



Healthspan is the first company to launch a product with clinically proven, optimal levels of glucosamine and chondroitin. ChondroMax remains one of our best-selling products.


Optiflex Glucosamine

Another first: Healthspan introduces sustainable, vegetarian, allergen-free Glucosamine HCl. Glucosamine HCl also provides our customers with 40% more glucosamine per gram, so your body receives more of what it needs.


Saving you time

To help its customers avoid unnecessary trips to the post office, Healthspan develops its award-winning 'letterbox-friendly' packaging. Our packaging, along with everything else, is designed to put our customers first.


More convenient ordering

To save its customers time and money, Healthspan launches its subscription service across the entire range. With Subscribe & Save you never have to remember to order, as your next pack is delivered automatically before you run out. What's more, you save money on every order.


Cutting-edge products

Healthspan's experts develop Opti-Turmeric capsules to provide curcumin (turmeric's active ingredient) in a liquid base, specially formulated to be 185x better absorbed than standard turmeric powder.


A better-tasting CBD range

All our CBD products are a clear, golden coloured liquid without the yucky taste found in many competitor products. Our CBD is extracted from EU-grown hemp using non-toxic CO2. The filter-clear method removes impurities resulting in the clear, pleasant oil you see in our products.


Greater rewards for loyal customers

Improvements to the Subscribe & Save service mean customers can now save up to £6 per pack. The tiered system is developed to reward our most loyal customers.
