What vitamins should I take? 

Where to find the best vitamins? 

How can I recognize a good product? 

These are questions we hear frequently - not only from our customers but also family and friends. With so many options and so much information out there it can get quite confusing, no doubt. 

This is what we recommend you to do in order to find good quality supplements that match your needs. 

1. Assess your current status quo 

Before taking supplements it is important to look at your current status quo. There are multiple factors that should be considered: 

  • What is your gender and age? 
  • In what country/ geographical region do you live? 
  • Are you experiencing any health challenges? 
  • How much do you exercise? 

These questions are important because your needs might vary a lot based on your age, diet, geographical location and lifestyle choices. 

A person in a tropical country might have totally different requirements than a person living in the Arctic region. Similarly an elderly person with a chronic health condition, a pregnant woman or a small child are likely to have very different needs than an athlete with a strict workout regimen. 

Remember: There's rarely a “one size fits all” solution when it comes to supplements. 

2. Consider your health goals 

After looking at your current status you should consider your personal health goals. 

  • Are you hoping to improve your fitness level? 
  • Do you want to lose weight? 
  • Are you looking at ways to support your busy lifestyle? 

Usually this will give helpful clues when it comes to choosing the right supplement. 


On our website we have organized our products into categories like Gut Health, Immunity and Muscle Health. By choosing a category you will automatically find the products that are most suitable for a particular purpose. 

3. Discuss suitable options with your doctor 

If you are taking medicines, suffer from any acute or chronic health problems or if you are pregnant, we recommend consulting with your doctor before taking supplements randomly. 

Why is that important?

While a product might be 100% natural it can potentially interact with medications and create unwanted side effects. In addition, some herbal remedies may influence the efficacy or toxicity of some prescription medicines. The best way to avoid negative outcomes is to predict and prevent possible drug interaction - means: discuss it with your healthcare provider. 


There are several vitamins that are recommended during pregnancy. But that does not mean all products are safe. Unsafe supplements include vitamin A and certain exotic herbal supplements. We recommend talking to your doctor/ obstetrician to find safe choices. 


In case you are planning to give supplements to your children check recommendations of your countries health officials and talk to your pediatrician if required. The NHS recommends the following on their website: 


Growing children, especially those who don't eat a varied diet, sometimes don't get enough vitamins A and C. It's also difficult to get enough vitamin D through food alone.


Please note: General recommendations can vary depending on your country. 

4. Choose quality products 

There are several things you can do in order to verify the quality of a vitamin product. Here's what we recommend: 

  • Buy from trusted brands and sources 
  • Check the labels for ingredients and dosage 
  • Look for a third party verification on the bottle
  • Only buy products that are approved in the EU 

Transparency is key when it comes to quality products. Avoid vendors and products that contain synthetic vitamin forms, unnecessary binders, preservatives or coatings. Other ingredients to avoid include artificial sweeteners, flavors, and dyes or genetically modified ingredients. 

How to get the most out of your supplements 

Supplements are safe and effective as long as you a) choose the right product and b) take it correctly. 

One rule of thumb is: Never exceed the dosage mentioned on the package and always remember to follow the instructions of the manufacturer. When it comes to vitamins and supplements, more is not automatically better! In fact, the dose makes the poison.
