The problem with most multivitamins and supplements
We made Heights after spending LOADS of money, time, and energy trying to nail the nutrition for our brains with multivitamins and other supplements. So if you’re feeling nothing and trying to figure out why, here’s what we uncovered about other multivitamins and supplement out there...
The problems with multivitamins
1. Hidden nasties
Too many multivitamins and other supplements contain harmful caking agents such as talcum powder (often listed as magnesium silicate), fillers, colourants, toxic dosages, invisible chemicals, and dangerous contaminants. All this is made worse by inaccurate labelling—so you may not even know if these things are lurking inside.
2. Unusable ingredients
Your body can’t always absorb the nutrients in a multivitamin or supplement combination. Some ingredients inhibit the absorption of others or are in versions unusable by the body. Many need to be taken with fats or certain foods in order for the body to absorb them into the bloodstream. So you may be paying for something that isn’t having any nutritional value.
3. Questionable sources
Did you know that a lot of vitamin D is sourced from sheep wool? Or that most omega 3 comes from processed fish oil or fish livers? Not great if you’re on a plant-based diet, or would rather your nutrients came from sustainable sources.
4. Just not enough
Because omega 3 is in liquid form, it's often missed out of multivitamins—except those using a dual capsule. Blueberry antioxidants or high enough doses of certain vitamins are also absent from most multivitamins. This means you’re either missing out on crucial nutrients for the health of your brain and body, or have to take multiple supplements to top up.
What makes the Heights Smart Supplement different?
1. Full transparency
You can see exactly what’s in our capsules. Nutrients, nothing else—read what our co-founder, Joel, has to say about it.
2. Nutrients you can use
Every ingredient in our capsules works together to make them easy to absorb. And encasing them in algae oil means they’re released slowly and effectively, without needing to take them with food. We also use the most bioavailable form of each nutrient, meaning they're all already in the most absorbable form.
3. Sustainable, plant-based ingredients
Everything in Heights Smart Supplement is vegan, halal, kosher, and allergen-free, as well as being responsibly-sourced.
4. The right doses, according to research
Every ingredient is included in the doses proven to make a difference. And we review the formula every 3 months to keep it up to date with the latest research.
