Are vitamin supplements necessary?

It’s common to meet people who don’t believe in ‘natural remedies’. But even those who in illness prefer a doctor’s prescription to a herbal medicine, need certain nutrition supplements for health maintenance. 

Supplements may be needed to fill gaps in your diet, and address nutrient depletion or deficiencies caused by the modern environment and lifestyle.


Vitamin D

A research review by Health & Food Supplements Information Service (HSIS) concludes that a third of the UK population is vitamin D deficient and preventing deficiency can only be achieved by supplementation for all.

A good multivitamin like Pollution Protection Daily Multi ensures you get a good intake of essential vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin D. 

Multivitamins have also been shown to be protective against cognitive decline - read more at this related blog post. 

Pollution Protection Daily Multi fulfils your daily Vitamin D needs.



I suspect most people lack magnesium due to poor dietary intake and stress-related depletion. 

It’s easy to spot a need for magnesium because the symptoms are obvious, and easily remedied when you start taking Vital Minerals Magnesium:

  • Sleep issues
  • Muscle cramps
  • Headaches
  • PMS and period cramps
  • Fatigue

Omega 3

You probably don’t eat enough fish to have good levels of Omega 3.

Without plentiful Omega 3, your diet becomes inflammatory.

So, Omega 3 Fish Oil or Vegan Algae oil supplements are key for:

  • Better skin
  • Brain health
  • Joint comfort


You probably don’t follow a ‘nose to tail’ eating philosophy because of time, ingredient availability, or ick factor. 

Collagen powder plugs this modern dietary gap and unflavoured, hydrolysed marine collagen powder is very easy to use - it dissolves in any drink to improve your amino acid intake.
