We find our source...

Turmeric in small basketIt all starts at the source. Take turmeric, a nutrient that appears in a number of our joint health products. We source turmeric from India, where our supplier tracks down the highest quality extracts from the Southern Indian provinces of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. The extract produced from this Turmeric has a guaranteed minimum of 95% curcuminoids - the active ingredient. This is the kind of attention to detail that builds trust between Healthspan and its customers.

Where do some of Healthspan's top products come from?

Where appropriate, they have independent accreditation from organisations such as Friend of the Sea and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), showing the company adheres to the strongest standards for sustainability in aquaculture. We believe good nutrition is possible without compromising the future of our planet, so you'll see the Friend of the Sea and MSC logos on our omega, krill and cod liver oil products.

...We carefully create.

Other supplement origin stories

Pills icon

CBD

Origin: Europe

Healthspan's CBD is sourced from Slovakia or Latvia - the Carpathian and Baltic regions. CBD is sourced from the hemp plant, the non-marijuana strain of the cannabis plant. The marijuana plant and the hemp plant are both from the 'cannabis' family, but the latter only contains tiny traces of an ingredient known as THC (which causes a 'high'). Hemp does not contain enough THC to cause a psychoactive effect.

Flower

Retinex

Origin: India

The lutein and zeaxanthin used by Healthspan in its Retinex products is from a natural source of marigold flowers, grown in the Karnataka region in South West India. The marigolds are grown by a cooperative group of farmers according to Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP).

Coniferous tree

Plant sterols

Origin: Spain

Plant sterols are made from liquid rosin which is extracted from coniferous trees. Rosin is a golden yellow liquid, rich in the phytosterols that are thought to lower cholesterol. We source our rosin from the sunny country of Spain.
