The Power of Plant-Based Nutrition with Dr. Vegan at Amaranth

The Power of Plant-Based Nutrition with Dr. Vegan at Amaranth
We are delighted to announce the arrival of Dr. Vegan supplements to Amaranth. For those of you who are not familiar with the brand, Dr Vegan specialise in high-quality plant-based supplements.  Their range includes single nutrients as well as carefully crafted formulas to support your specific wellbeing needs. 

The History of Plants for Healing

Plants have long been used for their therapeutic properties.  Indeed, many pharmaceutical products are derived directly or indirectly from plants.   ‘At the dawn of 21st century, 11% of the 252 drugs considered as basic and essential by the WHO were exclusively of flowering plant origin’.1  Additionally, many modern pharmaceuticals, such as aspirin, are simply synthetic versions of naturally occurring plant compounds.2   

Why did we choose to add Dr. Vegan to our range?

The Dr Vegan range includes carefully selected blends, backed by robust research.  The nutrients are provided in easily absorbable forms ensuring you reap the maximum benefit from each serving and, of course, they fit our philosophy of being free from unnecessary chemicals, colours and additives.

Other plus points:  As you may have guessed, the Dr Vegan range is fully vegan and cruelty –free.  The company uses recyclable packaging and source their ingredients responsibly, minimizing their environmental footprint.

What health needs do they support?

For this introductory period our nutritional team have hand-picked eight new formulas, designed to address some of the most enquired-about health concerns.  We are more than happy to advise on, and order, other products to support your individual health goals.

Some product highlights with some of their hero ingredients

Dr. Vegan Stay Calm

Stress and anxiety can affect both our physical and mental wellbeing.  Over longer periods of time stress can affect blood pressure, blood sugar management and lead to central weight gain.  Stress is also one of the primary causes of fatigue which can impact our social and work life. 

Stay Calm is a unique blend of botanicals and minerals to promote natural balance during periods of upset.  Potent adaptogenic herbs, used for centuries in traditional medicine, are the key ingredients in this formula.  Ashwagandha is shown to significantly lower stress levels and improve sleep quality.3,4

Rhodiola has been shown to positively influence stress hormone release, promoting resilience to physical and mental stresses, while boosting energy metabolism.  Research shows that this herb can help to prevent chronic stress and stress-related complications.5, 6

Other ingredients include Cordyceps, a medicinal mushroom acclaimed for its energy boosting properties plus essential B vitamins and Magnesium, nutrients which are commonly depleted during periods of stress.  B vitamins and Magnesium contribute to energy production and to normal mental and psychological function.   


Dr. Vegan Peri-Menofriend 

This product has absolutely flown off the shelves!  It is a comprehensive, well thought-out blend to support you through the many (many!) symptoms of peri-menopause.   It includes essential vitamins and minerals, herbal adaptogens, phytoestrogens and hydrating sea buckthorn berry.

Phytoestrogens are plant compounds that can help to modulate oestrogen levels in the body.  In countries where women tend to have a diet rich in phytoestrogens, such as Japan, research suggests a lower incidence and severity of difficult menopausal symptoms, such as hot flushes, and a lower risk osteoporosis and hormone driven cancers.7,8  Phytoestrogens also show promise in helping to relieve depression symptoms among menopausal women.9 

Sea buckthorn contains numerous bioactive components with wide-ranging cosmetic, medicinal and therapeutic benefits.  It has shown positive effects on the symptoms of metabolic syndrome (blood lipid levels, blood pressure and blood sugar) and it is also intensely hydrating.  It can help to relieve dryness associated with the menopause such as dry skin, hair, eyes and vaginal atrophy.10


Dr. Vegan Hair Saviour 

Hair loss can have a dramatic impact on our confidence levels, our social life and our sense of attractiveness.  Dr. Vegans’ Hair Saviour formula is an all-rounder for those with thinning hair or hair loss with no obvious underlying cause.  The blend features a unique combination of clinically studied botanicals, and vitamins and minerals to support healthy hair growth in both men and women.

MSM is included to provide strength and durability to the hair.  Maintenance of hair strength requires a steady supply of sulfur, which supplementation with MSM can provide.11 There is also research to suggest improvements in hair growth.12

The supplement contains ingredients to address potential nutrient deficiencies associated with hair loss such as iron, zinc and biotin13, 14 as well as endocrine disorders such as altered thyroid function or high circulating androgens, common in conditions such as PCOS15 (saw palmetto and copper). Copper and cayenne pepper also increase circulation to the scalp helping to stimulate hair follicles.

Beyond Supplements: A Holistic Approach to Well-Being

While Dr. Vegan supplements offer a powerful way to nourish your body from within, remember that health is a multifaceted concept. Here are some additional tips to complement your routine:

  • Maintain a Balanced Diet: Nourish your body with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods provide essential vitamins, minerals, and fibre to support optimal nutrition and overall well-being.
  • Stay Hydrated: Water is vital for numerous bodily functions, including digestion, nutrient absorption, and maintaining energy levels. Aim to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  • Prioritise Sleep: Getting adequate sleep enables your body to repair and regenerate, optimising physical and mental well-being. Strive for 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night.
  • Manage Stress: Chronic stress can disrupt your body's natural balance. Practice stress-reduction techniques like yoga, meditation, or deep breathing to promote relaxation and well-being.
  • Regular Exercise: Engaging in regular physical activity improves circulation, boosts energy levels, and promotes overall health. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
