There’s a choice of 22 supplements, which comprises everything from a universally beneficial multivitamin to problem-solving PMS and sleep solutions – and the including the currently-trending berberine, dubbed ‘nature’s Ozempic’ on TikTok.
Let’s look at some of their best-sellers in more detail.
The trending one: Berberine, from £20 for a month’s supply
What is berberine? Ever heard of it? You will soon now that TikTok is comparing it to Ozempic, the wildly popular(in the US at least) weight loss drug. But while Ozempic slows down the rate at which the stomach empties and so suppresses appetite, berberine helps convert sugars from food into mitochondrial (cell) energy efficiently. This means it helps decrease blood sugar as well as increasing the rate at which the body burns fat and slightly lowering cholesterol levels: a win-win.
But it has beneficial properties beyond being a weight-loss aid: it inhibits the growth of harmful gut bacteria, so healing inflammation, fighting infection and supporting the body’s homeostasis and even longevity. You’d think it would have to be sourced from the ends of the earth, but the compound is in fact found in plenty of plants, including goldenseal and barberry. Bettervits Berberine contains 750mg pure berberine, the highest strength available in the UK, sourced from the Indian Barberry, and the brand calls it its ‘All Round All Star’.
The gut complex: Probiotic Complex, £35
Tackling digestion, bloating, IBS and overall gut health, one daily cap delivers ten diverse strains and 30 billion CFU (colony forming units) of probiotic cultures – one of the highest concentrations on the UK market. There’s also prebiotic inulin to support an even more diverse gut microbiome, and vitamin B12 for energy support.
The joint lubricator: Glucosamine Complex, £35
A high potency dose of 1,000mg glucosamine is known to promote healthy bones and joints, protect cartilage and help reduce systemic inflammation. It’s aided by therapeutic doses of chondroitin, MSM, turmeric, vitamin C, Boswellia and hyaluronic acid, making for a seriously joint-lubricating, anti-inflammatory blend that will help alleviate pain and stiffness
The rejuvenator: Collagen Complex, £35
This collagen-boosting complex has 1,000mg of type 1 marine collagen alongside hyaluronic acid, biotin, turmeric and vitamin C and E, all contributing to body’s natural formation of more collagen. It all helps to lubricate joints, hydrate and plump out skin, and strengthen your hair and nails. It’s rejuvenation from the inside out.
The balancer: Magnesium Complex, £30
Not all types of magnesium are the same as the body absorbs some a lot better than others. So this complex is a triple-type magnesium composed of three highly bioavailable forms: glycinate, citrate and malate. They work together to improve energy during the day and promote restful sleep overnight. Supported by two types of zinc to boost absorption and immunity, add digestion and reduce inflammation and vitamin D3 to support muscles, bones and mood, it’s a real support complex for body and mind.
The midlife support system: Menopause Complex, £35 for a month’s supply
Not one, not three, but 13 ingredients famed for their effective support of menopausal bodies and minds, and alleviation of menopausal symptoms. Meticulously researched, it features a 125mg of nervous system-balancing ashwagandha extract alongside impressive doses of maca root and silymarin (for hormone balance), sage (to battle hot flushes and night sweats), magnesium, B vitamins, soy isoflavones and more. It’s a comprehensive formula that’ll stop the menopause from breaking your stride.
