As a patient and nutritionist I’ve been able to see first hand that quality nutritional supplements can be incredibly effective, and used alongside a healthy diet result in dramatically improved health.
I founded Inessa Wellness as a nutrition and functional medicine clinic back in 2009.
As the clinic grew, there was one thing that really stood out to me: that quality nutritional supplements could be incredibly effective, and when used alongside a healthy diet, could dramatically improve a person's health.
This was something I had experienced for myself after being diagnosed with a lifelong autoimmune condition in 2001. The prescribed medication made my hair fall out among other side effects, but didn’t improve my symptoms and so the recommended next step would be to undergo life changing surgery.
At that time, the importance of nutrition and diet was not as well understood as it is today, but as it was a disease of the digestive tract, I felt there had to be something there. Determined to find a solution, I started researching and self-testing to find a way to fix my health.
A year later I was confirmed in remission - a combination of diet & supplements had fixed me where drugs had failed. My medical consultants assured me my remission was temporary (I was given an estimate of a year to relapse), but it is nearly two decades on and I have not had to take immunosuppressant drugs since.
Later, as a clinician, I noted that there was no shortage of practitioner brands creating quality products based on science to demonstrate their effectiveness. The challenge I experienced was having to suggest patients take multiple products to achieve the results they wanted - both practically difficult to keep up, but also horribly expensive.
Additionally, there were so many products out there, how on earth was the average consumer meant to know what would be best for them?
And so I decided to create my own products, searching out the UK’s leading product developers, laboratories and researchers to work with me to create a streamlined range which does not compromise on effectiveness.
Our UK made products only contain the highest grade and most absorbable forms of ingredients. They contain optimal doses that are scientifically shown to have a positive effect on your wellbeing, and for that reason, we never include an ingredient in a small token amount just to make it appear more complete.
We launched our essentials range, which has over the past 2 years has garnered a cult following (we love the many messages we receive from customers from all over the world!) and we have a product pipeline of condition-focused products that we are very excited about - these are the products that I wish had been around when I was in practice.
We believe our Advanced Multivitamin with 100mg CoQ10 to be the most effective once daily complex in the market - it replaces many of the products that practitioners often suggest to support various health concerns. We love hearing from our customers about how their eczema has improved or their energy levels have been restored.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve our formulations as new research emerges.
Our pledge to you, our customer, is to only produce products that we believe to be of benefit as the science stands, to simplify the minefield that is the nutraceutical space, and to minimise as much as is possible the number of tablets you need to take daily.
