Solgar Essentials for Life

Solgar biography meet the producer focus

Solgar is passionate about inspiring people to take control of, and invest in, their health and wellbeing. Our mission is to support people on life’s journey, combining nature, science and nutrition to make it easier to achieve a lifetime of wellbeing.

We recognise that every day we make choices about our health and we want you to be in the best position to make the right decisions for you and your family.

Solgar was founded more than 60 years ago, and today our products are distributed in more than 50 countries. Solgar UK is based in Tring, Hertfordshire. From here we have a support and distribution team for the UK, Ireland and Europe.

It all started in 1947, when two pharmacists and an holistic physician shared the belief that it is better to prevent diseases with vitamins and minerals than to treat them with pharmaceuticals. Today, that notion has gained widespread acceptance; at the time, it was nothing short of ground-breaking.

Our expansive range of science-based health products are based on the latest clinical trials and backed by rigorous scientific evidence, setting a “gold standard” for product quality and attention to detail within the vitamin and mineral industry. Solgar® applies these high standards to everything we do, from our rigorous system of quality controls to our purity and potency guarantee.

You can see this “gold standard” in action throughout the production process, right down to the company’s signature recyclable amber glass bottles. . Although these "old style" medicine bottles cost more, we use them because they provide the best protection possible against heat, light, and moisture, preserving nutrient potency.

Solgar are also committed to choice, offering over 300 products to give consumers choice to pick the right product for them no matter what their need. Most Solgar® products are also gluten-free, many are also free of wheat and dairy, and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Much of our range is also Kosher and Halal certified.

Our award winning innovation was most recently recognized in Solgar Full Spectrum Curcumin 185x which was awarded Best New Product at the 2015 Natural Pharmacy Business Product Awards. Solgar® 7 took Best New VMS Product at the 2013 Natural and Organic Awards while Solgar Nutri-Nano CoQ10 3.1x won Best Overall VMS Product at the 2008 Health Food Business Awards.

And Solgar’s commitment does not end there. The packaging materials used for deliveries are recycled egg cartons and newspaper off-cuts of recycled paper. We’ve been carbon neutral since 2000, planting about 10,000 saplings to counter emissions from deliveries and company cars. Solgar also invests in carbon-credit offset projects and has invested in projects across the globe, including wind farms and solar energy schemes.

Solgar have been unwavering in our efforts to consistently introduce high quality, innovative products to serve the needs of British consumers and we’re proud to deliver products people know and trust for quality and integrity.
