Vitamins & Supplements

Balanced diets and regular exercise should be enough to keep our bodies fit and healthy, but busy schedules, lack of good quality sleep and processed foods can sometimes get in the way. Supplements provide a convenient way of ensuring you get the vitamins, minerals and micronutrients required to promote good health and support normal bodily function.

Our range of vitamins and supplements have been carefully formulated to deliver a balance of the right nutrients needed to sustain a healthy body. In addition to multivitamins, we also have targeted supplements available for specific functions; from strengthening your immune system to increasing energy for sports, developing stronger bones and improving reproductive health.

What Vitamins Do You Need Daily?

Our bodies require two types of vitamins to stay healthy – fat-soluble vitamins and water-soluble vitamins. Vitamin A, Vitamin E and carotenoids are all fat-soluble, meaning that they require fat in order to properly absorb into the body. Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the tissues of the body. It’s important to ensure that your diet is rich in healthy fats to support this absorption and avoid deficiencies.

Water-soluble vitamins can’t be stored in body tissue like fat-soluble vitamins can. They are found in food and when the body has used them, they are excreted as waste products. For this reason, it’s important that we consume these nutrients regularly, either through food or through supplements, to replenish the body’s stock of them. The most common water-soluble vitamins include folate, Vitamin C and B Vitamins. These nutrients should be consumed regularly to ensure that we have sufficient levels of them to maintain healthy bodily functions.

How Can I Get All My Vitamins?

It is possible to get a range of nutrients through a healthy, balanced diet - rich in fruits, vegetables and legumes. But often, we are lacking in nutrients as a result of hectic schedules, a reliance on fast food and not consuming enough portions of fruit and vegetables. Supplements, such as multivitamins, nourish the body and ensure that the nutritional stores are replenished each day. They can be used as a nutritional safeguard to fill any gaps that our diet doesn’t fulfil.

Do Over the Counter Vitamins Work?

Over the counter vitamins and supplements are fantastic for supporting your body; they ensure that you get the balance of nutrients needed for optimal health. Over the counter vitamins have been carefully formulated to include the core vitamins and minerals the body needs and when used in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise, they’re effective at encouraging overall health and wellbeing.

What Happens When You Start Taking Vitamins?

When you start using high-quality vitamins, you’ll notice that you’ll start to have more energy and you may even notice some changes to your body. It can sometimes take a few weeks for the effects to become noticeable, and this time can vary from person to person.

Some people find they experience brief nausea with new supplements, but this is often just a case of taking them on an empty stomach or taking the wrong supplements for their needs. Because your body is getting all of the nutrients it needs when you start taking vitamins, you’ll notice that as time goes on, your muscles become stronger, your skin improves, and you’ll feel more focused and alert.

What Is The Best Brand of Vitamins?

There are various brands of vitamin supplements on the market, but when you’re searching for supplements, it’s vital that you find a reliable and trustworthy brand.

Vitabiotics offer a wide variety of vitamins that deliver targeted support for all ages and lifestyles. They have supplements directed at certain requirements, from hair growth and immune support to bone health. Vitabiotics have been committed to providing high-quality supplements, backed by scientific research, for over 45 years and are the UKs number one vitamin company.

Should I Take Vitamins During Pregnancy?

Before conception and during pregnancy, it’s essential that women get the right balance of vitamins and nutrients, including zinc, Vitamin D and iron. In particular, it’s vital that women receive the right levels of folic acid. Before conception and for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, women need to take 400 micrograms of folic acid daily in order to avoid the risk of neural tube defects in the baby and to encourage healthy development. Supplements convenient and ensure that you are getting the nutrients you and your baby need during this time.

Many women find taking vitamins to be beneficial during their pregnancy, combining them with a healthy, balanced diet. But vitamins can also be helpful when you first start trying for a baby as well, to increase the chances of getting pregnant and ensuring the body has everything it needs for healthy development.

What Vitamins are Good for Your Hair?

Zinc, selenium and biotin have been proven to enhance hair growth and support the maintenance of healthy hair and a healthy scalp. Vitamin A is also essential for hair growth, as it helps the skin glands to produce sebum which moisturises the scalp and keeps the hair healthy. With balanced nutritional support and nourishment from the bloodstream, it’s possible to promote healthier and stronger hair.

Will Vitamins Give Me More Energy?

It’s common for our energy levels to dip from time to time, depending on how active your lifestyle is or if you’ve been under more stress than usual. Maintaining a balanced diet, getting plenty of sleep and ensuring you’re drinking enough water can all help to increase your energy levels and stop you from feeling lethargic.

There are also key nutrients that can help to increase your energy levels. B Vitamins (particularly B12), as well as iron and Vitamin C, are all important nutrients for the body to boost energy levels.

Our price promise commitment means that as we match prices nationally, prices will go down (and up) accordingly.

If you see or buy a treatment online and find it cheaper with a high street competitor (whether or not they also sell online), as long as their service conditions are comparable, then we’ll match that price for you or refund the difference. The cost of the treatment must include consultation charges for medication without a prior prescription. Comparable service conditions include factors such as delivery charges and timescales (such as Shutl delivery), and consultation charges.

If you’ve already purchased the treatment online, please make sure you report the price match within 28 days of receiving it. If you’d like to buy the product but want us to price match first, please check that you’re providing the most up to date information you can obtain when you submit your claim.

We’ll be asking you for full details of the treatment, the competitor and their prices, so please do check that you have this information to hand before you contact us.

Please note though, that we won’t refund the difference in price paid if you could have bought the product more cheaply with an online-only retailer: examples of this include chemistdirect.co.uk, who sell only through their websites or mail order and not via high street shops. We also don’t match competitors who are in administration or closing down.
