I have been a loyal Healthspan customer for more years than I can remember. For quality and cost this company beats all the other competitors.They have the accolade of being the number 1 UK company in the vitamins and supplements market.
Founded by Derek Coates in 1996, Healthspan are the UK's No 1 direct vitamin brand and have just celebrated twenty years in business. As Derek states:-
*'In 1996 I founded Healthspan with just six products and a firm focus on quality, value for money and unsurpassed customer service. We are now almost 20 years young and our core values remain the same. We will never take your custom for granted and hope to remain your number one choice for vitamins and supplements for many years to come.'
In today’s society, we should all ideally get our daily doses of vitamins, minerals and supplements from our food and drink, but that often is not the case. Working full time, juggling careers with family commitments, having too much bad ‘stress’ and not relaxing enough all begin to take their toll. The older we become, joints start to seize up, the menopause causes hot flashes and mood swings, coughs and colds seem to appear more often and we often feel under par.
Diet plays a big part in how we look and feel and if we are short on time, processed foods often take the place of meat and two veg that our previous generation lived on. More chemicals are used and worries about food production are all uppermost in our minds.
Do supplements work?
I cannot answer that question for everyone, but I would like to share my ‘daily dose’ of Healthspan products that I take now. I am also going to write about some products I have taken over the years which I believe have helped and my current products which help me today.
The first product I bought when I was in my forties was Royal Jelly. This was taken as a daily 'tonic' and also to aid with stress relief.
*'Royal jelly is the highly nutritious nectar produced by worker bees as food for the queen bee. Royal jelly is known to contain B vitamins, minerals and trace elements such as copper, iron, phosphates, potassium, silicon and sulphur'
In my fifties I bought Black Cohosh
*'Black Cohosh Menopause Relief (THR) is a traditional herbal medicine extracted from the rhizome and root of the Black Cohosh herb. Based on traditional use, Black Cohosh can help relieve symptoms of menopause such as hot flushes, night sweats, temporary changes in mood, irritability, and restlessness'
I also bought Soy isoflavins to help with my menopause.
*'A potent source of natural plant oestrogens called ‘phytoestrogens'
Both these products helped alleviate the many symptoms I experienced.
I am now just past five score years and ten and over the last few years I have taken four products daily.
*'27 vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. One of the most comprehensive multivitamins available'
*'Garlic has been used for thousands of years for its therapeutic powers and has been associated with multiple health benefits making it the perfect supplement. Our range of odour controlled Garlic products contain the active ingredient allicin responsible for garlic's beneficial properties'
Super Strength Omega 3
*'Healthspan's Super Strength Omega 3 capsules offer the ideal one-a-day solution for anyone who fails to achieve enough oily fish in their diet or anyone looking for particularly high levels of the omega 3 beneficial fatty acids DHA and EPA. Omega 3 provides DHA which at a daily intake of 250mg has been proven to support brain health'
*'ChondroMax combines beneficial levels of our premium Optiflex®* Glucosamine HCl with the finest chondroitin sulphate (90%)'
I have only had one cold in the last twelve months and I am sure garlic helps.
My joints allow me to walk around four miles with no discomfort. Chondro Max helps. Chondroitin is a component of joint cartilage and glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance found in the fluid around our joints. as we age, our joints become weaker and the cartilage starts to deteriorate.
Super strength Omega 3 is a substitute for oily fish and also keeps my brain active.
As individuals, we all make our own choices as regards taking tablets, but I like to think my body is better for taking natural supplements, than prescribed tablets to help with conditions that affect us all, whatever our age.
Many of my friends and family take Healthspan products and all say that they feel better as a result.
With nutritional experts on hand to answer any queries you may have, along with excellent freephone customer service and free delivery, why go anywhere else for your health products? The FREE magazine is always a pleasure to read.
I should add that Healthspan also stocks Pets, Equine and skincare product ranges too!
I asked four friends of mine to write a sentence describing Healthspan.
'Healthspan - good value, fast delivery, always adding new products, interesting magazine.'
'Superb products, would not shop anywhere else for my vitamins and supplements.'
'A joy to speak to a nutritionist before purchasing my supplements.'
'Such great service and delivery.'
Many congratulations Derek on founding the company and long may you continue to thrive for the next twenty years and beyond!
