5 Of The Best Supplement Brands

As a team of clinical nutritionists, supplements form an integral part of our practice. When used correctly, they can have incredibly beneficial effects on our health and wellbeing. From correcting nutrient deficiencies to promoting good sleep and helping to alleviate stress.

With so many supplements available on the market, it can be hard to know which one to choose. Supplements vary hugely in terms of their quality and in most cases, supermarket and high street chemist brands are cheap for a reason.

There are some fantastic supplement brands who work hard to provide high quality supplements. Here are five companies whose products we regularly recommend to our clients…



Nutri Advanced make good complexes. They provide a range of high quality multivitamin and mineral supplements tailored for the different needs of women, pregnant women and men. We also like their Advanced Superfoods powder which is great added to smoothies or mixed with water as an alternative to squash.

Without expert guidance, one of the easiest ways to find the right probiotic for you is to choose one from OptiBac. OptiBac have created a variety of probiotic supplements formulated for different requirements. Their range include probiotics for bloating, for use whilst travelling, for those who have taken antibiotics, for immune system support… and many more. OptiBac use probiotic species and strains which have been scientifically researched for their intended use.

Omega 3 fish oils are one of the most popular supplements, and rightly so as this essential fat is commonly lacking in our diet. Fish oils are one supplement to take extra care with as it’s important to guarantee purity. Bare Biology fish oils are high strength and are independently tested for purity by IFOS. They provide a range of fish oils including products specially formulated for pregnant women and children.

As well as nutritional supplements we regularly recommend certain herbal supplements too. Milk thistle for supporting liver health, passiflora for calming, St John’s Wort for lifting mood and echinacea for immune system support all feature regularly in our clinical recommendations. The majority of A.Vogel herbs are grown using strict organic methods, mainly in the fertile conditions of Roggwil, Swizerland.

Vitamin D deficiency is a widespread problem. It’s such an issue that the government recommends we all supplement vitamin D during autumn and winter months. When we test new client’s nutrient status, we often find them to have low levels. Therefore it’s one of the most common supplements we put our clients on. BetterYou provide high quality vitamin D supplements in a range of doses. As a bonus, their supplements are sprays and none of their products require swallowing tablets

As a team of nutritionists, we always take a ‘food first’ approach to nutrition. We encourage our clients to focus on acquiring the vast majority of the nutrients they need from their diet. However, for various reasons it’s not always possible to achieve optimal nutritional status through food alone. Well chosen dietary supplements can play an important role in supporting our health. All of the supplements mentioned in this article are available through The Natural Dispensary and can purchased at a discount using our code: PEARSON10.

If you’re taking any medications or you have any diagnosed health conditions, always check with your doctor or a qualified nutrition expert before taking supplements.
