With so many Vegicaps to choose from, it’s hard to know which you should go for! Here’s a handy little guide to help:

Best for … Energy & Vitality

In need of a helping hand to combat sluggishness? Yerba Maté  has stimulating and tonic properties, along with naturally occurring caffeine; a stable energy source. Another supplement to consider is Muira Puama, which has a long history of being used as an energy tonic for physical capacities, making it a great option for healthy ageing.

Best for … Slimming & Weight Management

At this time of year, it’s all too easy to snuggle up on the sofa with snacks rather than going outside for a run or hitting the gym. Help to maintain a healthy body weight with Slimcaps  or Yerba Maté.

Best for … Immune Support

There are few things more important to your well being than maintaining a healthy immune system - keep it in good shape and you’ll ward away all sorts of nasties! Say no to sick days and try Pau d’Arco or Cat’s Claw.

Best for … Mind & Body

Feel your best and support your physical and mental performance with Maca. Classed as an adaptogen and superfood, this botanical has high levels of trace minerals. Suma may help to reduce your stress levels and keep you balanced so you can sit back and relax.

Best for … Sexual Health

Known to be an aphrodisiac, Catuaba is the most famous of all aphrodisiac plants from Brazil and has been celebrated by the local population for generations. It is popularly used by couples to maintain a healthy libido. Maca has been used for centuries in the Andes to enhance fertility.

Best for … Antioxidants

Give yourself an antioxidant boost by taking Graviola Fruit or Camu-Camu vegicaps. Antioxidants are molecules which can help the body fight against harmful damage to cells caused by free radicals. 


Best for … Healthy Blood Sugar

Help maintain a healthy blood sugar level with Cinnamon vegicaps. Studies have shown that supplementing the diet with Cinnamon may contribute to normal blood sugar levels, and it can be safely used for extended periods of time. Cinnamon can help maintain normal blood glucose levels as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Best for … Superfoods

We’re all guilty of reaching for naughty treats rather than nutrient-dense food from time to time. Top up on those essential superfoods with Maca and Acai. (Psst - Acai is also good for healthy ageing!)


Best for … Circulation

One of the body’s most important functions in is blood circulation, as it supplies oxygen to the brain and other organs. Another benefit is that it promotes healthier skin and encourages cell regeneration. We recommend taking Camu-Camu, Graviola Leaf or Cinnamon  to help with this.

Best for … Joint & Bone Support

Cat’s claw has been used by rainforest tribes to help maintain flexible joints, and it is still well known for this benefit today. Cat’s claw or ‘Uña de gato’ is a climbing vine native to the Peruvian Amazon, which gains its name from the barbed ‘claws’ with which it climbs the jungle canopy.
