Exciting News - You can now buy the entire range of Viridian vitamins and supplements online at Natures Healthbox and we also keep a selection at our shop in Brighton. Viridian is known as the vitamin company with the organic heart and was founded in 1999 by Cheryl Thallon after she had gained experience working in Health Food Shops, editing a health food journal and working as a senior manager for a large American supplement company. Initially starting with 24 products the range now has over 280 products for you to choose from and many are vegetarian and vegan friendly.
In order to keep your body healthy you need to pay careful attention to your diet – always trying to use organic wholefoods, fruit and vegetables where possible and avoiding nasty additives and chemicals that may cause damage to you. Viridian believes the health of the planet and the health of the individual are inextricably linked and more than 40% of the range are certified organic.
Nutritional supplements are a good practical tool to assist in achieving this aim and to ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs to be healthy and function efficiently. Certain groups of people are thought to be at particular risk of dietary deficiencies and these include pregnant or breastfeeding women, athletes or highly active people, vegetarians, vegans, slimmer’s, fussy eaters, heavy drinkers or smokers, and the elderly.
Viridian are committed to creating a high quality supplement range using ethical standards whilst generating some funds to support children’s and environmental charities chosen by stockists of the products.
Viridian is a UK based family business and their ethical principles extend to sourcing of ingredients and the whole manufacturing process with no nasty additives and naturally they are totally against the use of any animal testing. The capsules and organic nutritional oils are all produced in the UK creating jobs for local people. The ingredients are grown without the use of potentially harmful pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals and minimal packaging is used made of recycled or recyclable materials and we even offer 25p refund for bottles returned to our shop in Brighton.
They are particularly excited about the 100% Organic Scandinavian Rainbow Trout Oil which is the first certified organic fish oil setting a bench mark for environmental sustainability and nutritional quality as well as freshness and purity. To ensure the oil is fresh and pure there is no chemical or high heat processing and the oil is packaged within a matter of hours at source in Denmark. This means you are left with a pure virgin fish oil with no oxidation and excellent stability as its natural fatty acid structure is preserved. Omega 3 essential fatty acids are one of the most important nutrients for daily health and well - being. If you or your family are taking a fish oil supplement each day why not consider changing to the cleanest, purest and most pleasant tasting fish oil available. If your fish oil tastes unpleasant it is likely to be oxidised – Viridian also use organic rosemary and a tiny drop of organic orange and lemon oil so that even children can enjoy it.
