There are hundreds and thousands of supplement companies in the UK, but it is hard to know which ones to fully trust. Nutrition isn’t just something personal, it is also something to be taken very seriously. Therefore, you want to know that the brand you buy from has your interests at heart.

Many people, including myself, will want to buy effective supplements using high-quality plant-based ingredients. And to top it all off, they should be inside eco-friendly packaging. Because we really don’t need to be buying supplements in single-use plastic bottles anymore!

Ethical Nutrition is a company that has stepped up to meet this demand for quality supplements that are 100% vegan, environmentally friendly, and backed by science.

I first discovered this company when researching vegan omega-3 supplements and their offering struck me as being some of the best. So, I knew I had to try out more of their supplements to review and share with you.

In this Ethical Nutrition review, I will take a closer look at the brand and their full range of products. Within this, I will discuss the ingredients they use, their packaging, and the people behind the brand. Overall, this review aims to provide a comprehensive and unbiased assessment of Ethical Nutrition and their contribution to the plant-based movement and the nutritional space.

Review summary of Ethical Nutrition

This is a brand that truly lives up to its hefty credentials. Not only are they a fully vegan company, as approved by the Vegan Society, but they are also providing the most eco-friendly supplements that I’ve seen to date. It doesn’t stop there though, I have found their supplements to be really effective with just the right doses needed to get your recommended daily intake! You can’t go wrong putting your trust in this brand for all of your nutritional requirements.

Pros

Cons

There are so many reasons to love Ethical Nutrition and its fully vegan range of supplements. I’m going to summarise a few of my favourite things about this brand.

They use high-quality strong ingredients

There are unfortunately many supplement companies out there selling vitamins made using weak and low-quality ingredients. Not only is this a complete waste of your money, but it can also be harmful to your health. Weak supplements may not provide sufficient levels of nutrients or they may not be bioavailable, meaning they won’t be absorbed by your body. Leaving you susceptible to deficiencies. Additionally, these supplements could be mixed together with additives to help with taste and appearance, but these additives can pose risks to consumers.

Therefore, it is great to have companies like Ethical Nutrition that take their ingredients really seriously. Everything is rigorously tested and all of their supplements are both additive and palm oil free, containing just the ingredients needed to improve your health.

A good example of how their products shine amongst the rest is with their vegan omega-3 supplement. It contains the highest-strength algal oil that I’ve seen per serving and I saw really impressive changes in my body after a month of taking them. My hair became a lot shinier and my skin which is prone to eczema became a lot clearer. I also get a lot less brain fog when working. All of this, for the same price as other much weaker omega-3 supplements.

Despite being a high-quality product, they don’t charge over the odds for it. Their pricing pretty much matches most of their competition.

They actually use eco-friendly packaging

You’ll likely find a lot of vegan supplement brands advertising their eco-friendly packaging which is both plastic-free and compostable. I used to buy from these brands all of the time until one day I was advised that their plastic-free pouches actually contained bioplastics that can’t be home composted, nor thrown in your general rubbish bin. Hence, why you’ll see it says ‘compostable’ on their packaging, not ‘home compostable’. These really aren’t as eco-friendly as they are made out to be and require specialist waste solutions to dispose of them effectively.

So I am sure you can imagine my delight when I found Ethical Nutrition and their actual plastic-free packaging. The majority of their supplements are sold inside paper pouches that can be added to your paper recycling bin, but they also easily compost on landfill. This is because they have used zero plastics or bioplastics. But this does also mean that their pouches aren’t resealable, so just make sure to decant your supplements into a glass jar after opening!

A few of their supplements, like their omega-3 and collagen pills, are sold in glass jars. This is because they need to be stored in an airtight space. I like to hold on to these glass jars and reuse them for cooking and for gifting. But you can also easily recycle glass in your household recycling bin.

Their customer service is second to none

Ethical Nutrition is a family business through and through. It is run by a Grace and Mark, a wife and husband team, and they treat all of their customers as if they are part of the family.

I regularly see people online talking about their positive communication with the team at Ethical Nutrition. When someone messages them for help they will receive quick and useful advice and more often than not, the team at Ethical Nutrition will follow up with them to see how things are going. You can see how much they care for their customers, not only in the products that they sell but also with their incredible customer service.

On top of this, they are really knowleadgeable in all things nutrition. Mark has studied up to Master’s degree level in nutrition which really shows in the quality of their service. No over the top sales messages, just real human advice from knowledgable individuals!

My thoughts on Ethical Nutrition

It is amazing to see a supplement company actually live up to its promise of providing good quality supplements in eco-friendly packaging. There is no greenwashing here and no weak overpriced supplements.

All of their range has been well researched and executed which becomes really obvious when you start to experience the postive effects of taking their supplements long-term.

Whenever you feel a little bit unsure about your nutrition and the supplements you take, you can easily contact the team and they’ll be on hand to help.

This is a company that truly cares about its customers and the environment! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Areas of improvement

Ethical Nutrition currently offers 16 different types of supplements, within this is a range of traditional vitamins like Vitamin B12, Vitamin D and a vegan multivitamin, as well as some herbal remedies like ashwagandha.

Whilst this is quite a substantial range it isn’t as varied as alternative vegan-friendly supplement companies. In particular, they don’t currently offer a vegan probiotic supplement or individual vitamin pills like iron and iodine.

That being said, their range is constantly growing and I do know that they’ll bring out a probiotic soon. Moreover, their Ethical Multivitamin contains all of the essential nutrients needed like iron and iodine.

Review conclusion

These 100% vegan, environmentally friendly, good quality supplements have quickly become some of my favourites. It feels great to support a company that cares as much about their packaging as I do, and it is great that the products actually work too!

I hope they continue to grow and become one of the leading vegan supplement companies.
