Background
ESB Developments Ltd, the team behind Vegetology, is dedicated to the development of innovative health & beauty products. We have been working on nutritional research and development for many years.

Opti3 was our first launch, back in 2010. This award-winning Omega-3 EPA & DHA product is a 100% vegan and vegetarian alternative to fish oils. 

Vitashine Vegan Vitamin D3 was launched in 2011 following lengthy research. This is the first 100% plant-based, Vegan Society registered Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol). 

VegVit was launched in 2013. This followed a long-term research program into vitamin and mineral bioavailable and absorption rates. VegVit is not only a perfect multivitamin supplement for Vegetarians and Vegans (due to elevated levels of key vitamins and minerals), it is a real innovation in bioavailable nutrients through a novel formula. We call it ‘multivitamin and mineral engineering’ to best describe the close attention to mechanics within the formula to give optimum absorption.

Joint-Vie™ was launched in 2015. This followed breakthrough research into a plant-origin alternative to Chondroitin (which is of shark origin). Phytodroitin™ is a plant-source complex that mimics the structure and composition of Chondroitin. Our studies showed excellent results in Bone and Joint Care. Joint-Vie™ is a high strength, comprehensive Bone & Joint Care formula. It combines Vegetal Glucosamine, Phytodroitin™, Calcium and Magnesium together with Vitamins C, D3 and K2.

Addressing Urgent Nutritional Needs
The reason we embarked on the journey of creating our products comes back to our deep-set concerns over the impact of nutritional needs. Omega-3 and Vitamin D deficiency is rife, and together with the wider onset of bone/joint ailments worries us immensely. Individuals including Vegans, Vegetarians and people living in certain locations are at great risk of these deficiencies which have a profound, negative impact on health. We are incredibly proud to be able to offer real nutritional solutions to address these urgent needs.

Respect for nature and the environment
We look to nature for the scientific solutions to the nutritional problems we are trying to solve. That, however, would be pointless unless we showed complete respect to nature and the environment. We ensure sustainability is central to everything we do. Our preference is to not touch the environment, simply use nature as the origin. A prime example is our Omega-3, which originates in algae but we do not take this from our oceans, we grow the algae at special Pharma-quality facilities. This ensures not only environmental-protection but also total control of purity.

What makes us stand out
Having all worked for major multinational organisations in the past, our team members each have the right approach to quality, thoroughness and ensuring commercial viability. We have a dynamic team with the most simple of business processes. Basically, if we think something is worth doing, we do it. No red tape, no bureaucracy, no committees, no delays! Our ability to move and react quickly makes us stand out as an R&D company. With speed doesn't come rushing though - we never cut short any development stages and nothing leaves our laboratory or cutting table until it is 100% ready to go!
