Vital Vitamins

Vitamins are a group of organic nutrients, which are essential to regulate the chemical processes that go on in the body. Generally speaking vitamins cannot be made in the body and must be obtained from foods, or supplements. Lamberts® supplies over 25 single vitamin products including: vitamin A, the individual B vitamins, vitamin C as powder, capsules, tablets and as time release, plus four different potencies of vitamin E.

Mega Minerals

The nutritional value of minerals is every bit as important to us as vitamins yet today's highly processed foods coupled with the depletion of mineral levels in the soil arising from intensive farming practices can lead to shortfalls of these elements in our daily diet. Lamberts® offers a wide selection of single minerals and combination formulas including: Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, Chromium, Iron, Manganese, Iodine and Zinc.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis, or 'wear and tear' of the joints, is a degenerative disease where with age cartilage is damaged at the ends of bones. It affects joints such as the hips, knees, fingers and spine (low back and neck). Various supplements have been shown to benefit people with Osteoarthritis, such as vitamins B3, B5, C and E, calcium & magnesium, boron, Green Lipped Mussel Extract and Glucosamine. Glucosamine Sulphate can be an effective treatment for osteoarthritis, producing a significant improvement in the symptoms of pain, joint tenderness and swelling. Fish oils containing EPA and DHA (Flax Seed Oil, Pure Fish Oil, Cod Liver Oil) are a crucial component in the body's production of prostaglandins (hormone like materials) which possess anti-inflammatory properties which help alleviate the symptoms of Osteoarthritis.

Digestive Aids

According to a recent survey of 500 people, one in ten Britons suffers from heartburn, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea or abdominal pains almost every day. Lamberts® has developed a range of supplements designed to support the different parts of the digestive system cope with the enormous variations in dietary composition as well as periods of disruption caused by lifestyle changes, illness and the process of ageing.

Included in the range are Acidophilus, Peppermint oil, Colon cleanse, and various other supplements.

High Potency Herbs

Lamberts use extracts of the herbs since the extraction and drying processes greatly increases the concentration of the active ingredients. Included in the range are: Ginkgo, Cranberry, Echinacea, Pycnogenol, Milk Thistle, Black Cohosh, Ginseng, Valerian, St' John's Wort, Vitex Agnus-Castus, Ginger, Aloe Vera, Turmeric, Hawthorn, Saw Palmetto Complex and Horse Chestnut Complex.

Multiple Formulas

Whilst all individuals' nutritional needs are different, it is recognised that certain groups of people share common micro nutrient requirements so Lamberts have formulated a range of multis to suit the needs of distinct groups of people.

Lamberts one-a-day Multi-Guard is one of the best multi-nutrient formulas for adults on the market, providing a safe and sensible foundation for nutritional support. It is probably the most comprehensive one-a-day multi vitamin and mineral formula on the market.

Essential Fatty Acids

Most omega 3 and omega 6 supplements on the market are found in capsule form and look very similar so it is difficult for people to appreciate the difference in the quality of the oils. But the reality is that there is a huge difference as companies can provide very different grades of oil. Lamberts have become experts in obtaining the best quality oils with excellent fatty acid profiles. These include omega 3 rich oils (cod liver oil, pure fish oil, flax seed oil) and omega 6 rich oils (evening primrose oil and high GLA).

Other Nutrients

Lamberts provide a range of special nutrients, including Green Lipped Mussel Extract, Garlic, Co-Enzyme Q10, Lecithin and Glucosamine Sulphate (750mg), which can be used safely alongside multi-nutrient products and herbs. 

Glucosamine Sulphate is essential for maintaining healthy cartilage, the smooth tissue that lines joints. Lamberts use the highest grade of Glucosamine Sulphate available and one that is close to the profile of naturally occurring glucosamine produced by the body.
