One of the brands we’re really proud to be stocking is The Nue Co. They are an American company and their natural ingredients and scientific approach to naturally aid our diets and lifestyle are brilliant. We thought we’d share a little bit about them and the products we stock.
The Nue Co. was born in 2017 with the aim of redefining the relationship we have with our health. They launched with a line of food-based supplements, which has since expanded to include a topical spray and two tinctures. The brand was launched as a result of a family member being involved in the science of vitamins, but wouldn’t take them himself, purely because most supplements are actually just chemical preservatives with fillers. Figuring there must be a better way, The Nue Co. was born.
They blend science and natural innovation to deliver effective, yet gentle solutions. That means working with clinically proven ingredients, as well as best practices from Ayurvedic and Chinese medicines. They believe that taking supplements should feel like a treat, not a chore. Their luxurious formulas pair potent natural ingredients with results that you can feel.
When in doubt, turn to food first. Nothing works better. When you can’t, take our supplements.
Right now we only have a few of their products. We’re hoping to expand this soon.
Topical-C is a powdered vitamin C supplement for your face. Proven to boost collagen, fight sun damage, and firm skin, it dissolves and activates when mixed with your existing moisturiser or face serum. Applied daily, skin appears brighter with less visible fine lines and wrinkles. It’s really simple to use too; just dissolve 2–3 shakes in the palm of your hand with water or your favourite serum and apply it to your face, neck and décolletage if you feel like it. With daily use, you can expect brighter skin and a visible reduction in fine lines, scarring, and pigmentation. We love it here. It’s slightly alien adding powder to your moisturiser to begin with but your skin feels so soft afterwards that it becomes an everyday ritual.
Defence Drops are your first line of defence against getting sick. The Nue Co.’s immune-boosting liquid tincture contains a blend of adaptogenic herbs and immunomodulating extracts with naturally antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Use at the first sign of a scratchy throat or sneeze to help support your body’s immune response. It has amazing reviews and tastes good too—just a slight herbal twang if added to water and a stronger taste if used directly under the tongue. They can be used as you start to get a sore throat/or feel ill. I know a lot of customers in this climate whose immune systems are precious that are taking it daily.
Magnesium Ease is absorbed through the skin and delivers 45mg of magnesium in just three sprays. Use before bed as a sleep aid or post-workout to help speed up muscle recovery. Recent studies have shown that a lot of people are deficient in magnesium. This essential mineral is vital for over 325 biochemical reactions in the body and lack of it has been proven to negatively impact sleep quality, muscle, nerve and heart function. Magnesium sprays are five times more effective than taking a traditional supplement. They pair high-quality magnesium chloride with lavender and arnica oil, which contains helanalin—a potent anti-inflammatory. Together the three ingredients efficiently aid relaxation and reduce muscle tension. Don’t be surprised if you feel a slight tingling sensation after your first application—it’s totally normal and a good sign that it's working!
Functional Fragrance—quite simply a fragrance with a function, designed to help you reset at times of high stress. Developed using data insight and research into the connection between cognitive function and the olfactory system. This is an anti-stress supplement delivered in the form of a unisex fragrance. Clean, woody, spicy and smoky. Green cardamom, Iris, Palo Santo and coriander. We love the smell at Roots and find it a brilliant product to have with you when out and about. You can also use this to help with meditation and mindfulness. Breathing in the scent slowly and exhaling.
Prebiotic + Probiotic delivers 15 billion spores per dose and was formulated specifically to help combat symptoms of IBS and long-term digestive issues and to improve your gut health. Unlike live bacteria, which is often dead upon arrival, The Nue Co.’s vegan Prebiotic + Probiotic is room-temperature stable and doesn’t start working until it reaches your small intestine. The time-delay capsules are gentle on the stomach and derived from the bark of poplar trees. If you think of probiotic bacteria as a seed, the prebiotic is a fertiliser; it encourages the good bacteria to grow and multiply, giving it the best chance of survival in your gut. The Nue Co. use a 15 billion-spore dose probiotic and prebiotic inulin derived from 100% organic chicory root, which has been proven to help treat symptoms of IBS. They'll also make your skin glow and a brilliant way to help boosting your immune system. It’s one of The Nue Co.’s best selling products.
