Optiflex Glucosamine is a patented form not available from any other company.
Weight for weight, it offers 40% more glucosamine per gram than glucosamine sulphate supplements.
What's more, it's made from a sustainable, natural, corn-based source (GlucosaGreen) that is shellfish-free and vegan and vegetarian friendly.
Glucosamine is needed to make cartilage, tendons, ligaments and joint fluid. Production in the body declines with age, contributing to joint deterioration.
Chondroitin sulphate is the perfect partner to glucosamine, as it helps to form 'springy' molecules that increase the strength and elasticity of cartilage, making it more resilient.
Chondroitin also acts as a signal to inhibit the enzymes responsible for breaking down cartilage, and increases the synthesis of type II collagen (see below).
Provides 1,325mg Optiflex Glucosamine per one-a-day tablet: the largest amount of glucosamine available in a nutritional supplement.
A combination of 500mg Optiflex Glucosamine plus 100mg premium chondroitin sulphate per tablet. Unlike brands that only use chondroitin sulphate 20%, we use premium 90% chondroitin sulphate, so your body absorbs more pure chondroitin per tablet.
With added Vitamin C to support joint health.
An advanced formulation providing 500mg Optiflex Glucosamine plus 400mg premium 90% chondroitin sulphate per tablet.
With added Vitamin C to support joint health.
Turmeric, a golden yellow member of the ginger family, has a long history of use in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine.
Curcumin, the main ingredient in turmeric, is particularly helpful for suppressing joint swelling and stiffness.
Inspired by Ayurvedic culture, this high-potency natural-source turmeric extract contains 95% curcuminoids.
Each tablet provides 500mg turmeric extract, equivalent to 10,000mg of fresh turmeric root.
With vitamin C to support collagen formation and immune health.
Bioperine, extracted from black pepper, helps to reduce the breakdown of curcumin in the intestinal wall, which can boost its absorption by as much as 40x.
The long-chain omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are vital for health.
There are government-approved health claims that DHA is important for healthy brain function and for maintaining normal vision, while both DHA and EPA help to maintain normal blood pressure and triglyceride levels and contribute to the normal function of the heart.
Many people find that omega 3 is beneficial for joints, too.
A great-value premium fish oil with 120mg DHA and 170mg EPA fatty acids per capsule to support brain, eye and heart health.
A highly concentrated, refined and sustainably sourced fish oil for brain, heart and eye health. 240mg DHA and 360mg EPA per capsule.
Optimal absorption omega-3 oil, sustainably sourced and contained in gastro-resistant capsules to reduce acid reflux.
Opti-Omega 3 has the highest levels of omega 3 in the Healthspan range, with 750mg total omega-3 per capsule (320mg DHA and 320mg EPA).
Not long ago, vitamin D was all about calcium absorption and strong bones.
Now researchers realise it has many other important functions in the body, including helping to maintain healthy bones, teeth, muscles and immunity.
Vitamin D3 tablets providing the minimum daily intake recommended by the NHS.
Research suggests that optimum intakes of vitamin D are higher than originally thought, so we've included 25mcg (1,000iu) of natural source vitamin D3 into each one-a-day tablet.
Suitable for vegetarians. Over 3,400 5-star reviews.
A small capsule specially formulated for anyone over the age of 50.
This premium-strength vitamin D3 supplement includes a drop of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil to enhance absorption.
Although diet should always come first, many people miss out on key vitamins and minerals because they are cutting back to lose weight, skip meals due to time pressures or avoid certain items for personal reasons.
Over the age of 50, the ability to absorb certain nutrients also decreases.
If you don't manage to meet the 5-a-day fruit and veg guidelines, and don't eat two portions of fish per week, one of which is oily, then a multivitamin and mineral supplement can help maintain your nutrition levels.
A comprehensive, full-spectrum, A-to-Z vitamin and mineral supplement in a one-a-day formulation.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
A comprehensive multivitamin tailored specifically for those over 70 who want to feel their best.
Contains a wide range of vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients, including co-enzyme Q10, ginseng, bioflavonoids, alpha-lipoic acid and acetyl L-carnitine.
Just one tablet a day helps to support your brain, bone, heart and immunity health, as well as your muscles and energy metabolism. Over 3,400 5-star reviews.
Three key supplements in one – a full-spectrum A-Z multivitamin and mineral, 280mg vegan omega-3 sustainably sourced from marine microalgae, plus a capsule providing 5 billion live selected cultures of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotics for digestive health.
Eyesight is precious, yet it's easy to take your vision for granted until it starts to fail. Although diet should always come first, certain supplements can help to preserve vision.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are yellow, carotenoid pigments found in yellow-orange red vegetables such as carrots, as well as green leaves such as spinach.
These pigments are concentrated in a part of the retina called the macula, which is responsible for fine vision, where they filter out harmful blue light and provide antioxidant protection against free radicals generated during light detection.
This vegan formula provides 10mg natural lutein sourced from marigolds, plus 1,000mcg of zeaxanthin.
Added vitamin B2 contributes to normal vision.
This premium formulation provides 20mg lutein plus 2,000mcg zeaxanthin and 1.4mg vitamin B2 to help maintain healthy vision.
Our ultimate blend of eye health nutrients in a dual formation. The tablet provides 20mg lutein, 2000mcg zeaxanthin plus key vitamins and minerals needed for eye health.
The capsules provide 250mg DHA omega-3 fatty acids sourced from marine microalgae.
CBD (cannabidiol) is an active ingredient extracted from industrial hemp – a non-drug strain of cannabis plants. CBD supplements only have trace elements of THC, so do not produce a 'high'.
CBD is short for cannabidiol, and is one of at least 113 compounds known as cannabinoids that have been identified in the cannabis plant. These cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system in the human body.
These capsules contain 6.4mg pure, distilled CBD oil per capsule, in olive oil to aid absorption.
Added vitamin D3 helps to support muscle and immune health. A great starter product if you are new to CBD.
Our strongest CBD oil capsule, each providing 15mg CBD in a delayed-release capsule for improved absorption in the small intestines.
Ultra-strength CBD oil drops at 10.7% concentration with a peppermint flavour. Batch-tested for purity. Maximum dose is 15 drops daily. Perfect for experienced CBD users.
Magnesium is a mineral whose importance is growing daily. Once estimated to be vital for over 300 enzymes to work properly, that number has grown to over 700.
Magnesium is involved in just about every metabolic reaction, from the production of energy to the synthesis of hormones, proteins and genetic material.
Magnesium has beneficial effects throughout the body, especially in the circulation, promoting blood vessel dilation, lowering blood pressure, reducing abnormal blood clotting and protecting against abnormal heart rhythms. It also helps keep your bowels regular.
This vegan-friendly supplement provides 375mg magnesium plus a B vitamin complex to support your bones, teeth, muscles, nervous system and energy levels, and vitamin C for immune health. Over 2,600 5-star reviews.
This premium supplement contains magnesium citrate and malate: two of the most easily-absorbed sources of magnesium.
Each tablet also contains vitamin D to support bones, teeth and immunity, plus soluble fibre inulin, which acts as a prebiotic – food for your gut's friendly bacteria – to promote bowel health and regularity.
Garlic is an important component of the Mediterranean diet. It is a rich source of powerful antioxidants, such as allicin, which have beneficial effects on the circulation.
Supplements are either made from fresh garlic or from aged black garlic produced by a natural fermentation process.
Black garlic has higher levels of antioxidants and a significantly reduced garlic odour. Garlic is often taken alongside plant sterols to support a lower cholesterol level.
This popular triple-strength supplement provides 400mg of concentrated garlic powder, equivalent to a dose of 1,200mg fresh garlic, and provides 2mg allicin per tablet.
Vitamin B1 helps to support heart health. Odour-controlled to prevent reflux. Over 1,700 5-star reviews.
Our black garlic tablets are produced using a fermentation process in which fresh garlic is kept under controlled temperature and humidity conditions for over a month. This removes the smell and increases levels of antioxidants.
Our odour-free Black Garlic tablets provide 200mg of black garlic extract, with the antioxidant effect of 2,000mg of whole garlic. With vitamin B1 to support a healthy heart.
Collagen is an increasingly popular supplement that offers both joint and beauty benefits. It's the main structural protein in the body, providing the scaffolding for youthful skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and other tissues.
Supplements can contain collagen in its original form (unhydrolysed), which must be broken down during digestion before it can be absorbed.
A popular form, known as hydrolysed collagen, is pre-digested by protease enzymes to release small fragments (peptides) that are more readily absorbed. When the body detects these peptides, it helps to stimulate collagen production and repair.
This first-class supplement provides high levels of hydrolysed marine collagen (500mg per tablet) with a low molecular weight to aid absorption.
Added vitamin C also supports collagen formation. Over 600 5-star reviews.
This premium day and night supplement contains 250mg hydrolysed marine collagen peptides and micronutrients formulated to encourage healthier, more radiant-looking skin.
Superfood blend Dermaval and CocoMineral®, a coconut water extract, as well as borage, flaxseed and sea buckthorn oils containing omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 help to improve your skin's tone and overall appearance. Selenium and zinc maintain healthy hair while vitamin C protects against environmental damage.
Probiotics are live bacteria that provide health benefits. Although most of their effects occur within the intestinal tract, probiotics also stimulate immunity and may influence psychological health.
The most commonly used probiotic organisms are specific strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. These friendly bacteria play an important role in maintaining digestive health.
They produce lactic and acetic acids, as well as natural antibiotics that discourage the growth of the less beneficial bacteria that produce gases and may contribute to symptoms such as flatulence, bloating, pain and diarrhoea.
An advanced blend of twenty-billion live friendly bacteria from five well-researched strains, in one daily vegan capsule. Over 2,000 5-star reviews.
An advanced blend of fifty billion live cultures with calcium and vitamins B6 and D3 to support your digestive system, energy levels and immune health.
Coenzyme Q10 helps to drive the cell machinery that burns glucose and fatty acids to create energy.
There are two main forms of coenzyme Q10: ubiquinone and ubiquinol. Although your cells can make ubiquinol and ubiquinone, the amount they produce reduces with age, and the efficiency with which coenzyme Q10 is absorbed from the diet also decreases.
The ability to convert ubiquinone into biologically active ubiquinol also diminishes at a faster rate after the age of 50. Falling levels of co-enzyme Q10 reduce a cell's ability to generate energy and function properly, which is a major contributor to cell ageing.
The strongest Coenzyme Q10 in our range, providing 200mg, plus vitamin B1 to support heart health and energy metabolism.
Although taking either form of coenzyme Q10 as a supplement will provide benefits, taking the ubiquinol form puts the process one step ahead, as the body doesn't have to convert the nutrient in order to use it.
This is important for older people, who are unable to convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol as efficiently. This supplement provides 100mg of ubiquinol (equivalent to 280mg coenzyme Q10) plus vitamin B1 to support your heart health and energy metabolism. Over 700 5-star reviews.
Created by a leading cardiologist, this premium formulation contains 100mg of optimum absorption ubiquinol, vitamin B1 plus a vitamin E complex, omega 3, magnesium and vitamin C for heart, energy and fatigue support.
