Our supplements are trusted to support your health
What we stand for
We created Altruvita because we knew that many people were taking supplements to support their health and wellbeing without adequate information. Our team were seeing this in their daily practices. Everything we do at Altruvita is founded on evidence and years of experience.
Quality before profit
The supplements market is dominated by products that have the minimum allowable quantities of active ingredients from the lowest cost sources, topped up with fillers and bulking agents. At Altruvita, we use the best ingredients available and we produce everything in the UK under ISO9001 accredited conditions. Advanced manufacturing technology ensures the highest quality and consistency in our products and we always produce in small batches to ensure the freshness of ingredients and maximum efficacy.
We believe we have the most experienced team of medical advisors in the industry. So far, they have published eight research papers on the ingredients we use to formulate our supplements. Because our experts are committed to ensuring that every Altruvita product is proven to effectively support your health, evidence will always be at the centre of every product we create. We welcome and encourage your feedback – it helps guide everything we do.
Driven by customers
Altruvita was founded on the belief that people supporting their health with supplements deserve highest quality, best-evidenced products and reliable guidance on how to take them. We don’t just support your health; we are mindful of our impact on the environment too. Our containers are fully recyclable and shaped to fit through a letterbox, reducing unnecessary packaging. All our products are approved by the Vegetarian Society and suitable for vegans in most cases.
