Plant-based pharmacists working to support healthy vegan diets.
Developing the perfect vegan multivitamin.
Certified Vegan: Our products are certified vegan by The Vegan Society. We only use only plant derived ingredients, gelling agents and colourings, making it easy for people to switch to a Vegan diet whilst staying healthy.
Whilst Vegums are certified vegan by the Vegan Society, that doesn’t mean they’re not perfect for vegetarians and omnivores from 3+ too. Veggies struggle to meet their omega-3 quota, and there’s no doubt that algae oil is a better option for omnis too.
Vegums started with two friends: John and Abdul, both plant-based working pharmacists. They knew that pursuing a vegan or plant-based diet can result in vitamin and mineral deficiencies. It can be difficult to get sufficient essential vitamins such as B12, D, B6, selenium, and Iodine from non-animal diets. This leads to the potential for serious health problems such as anemia, tiredness, depression, and poor metabolism.
They struggled to find plant-based multivitamins, particularly gummies, for their families. So, they decided to use their pharmacological expertise and research non-animal vitamin ingredients to develop the ideal multivitamin for a vegan and plant-based lifestyle.
The result was the successful launch of The Multivitamin for Vegans, in November 2018. It contains no animal-derived ingredients (as certified by the Vegan Society), uses natural colors and flavors, and a pinch of natural cane sugar for sweetness. This is how Vegums started.
Devoted to providing quality and ethical vegan supplements
As demand for our Multivitamin significantly increased, so did our team. We are now a team of eleven, devoted to providing you with quality and ethical vegan supplements while making sure that you feel totally looked after as one of our valued customers.
We are currently developing new delicious products, with the same ethos, as requested by our customers. 2020 was a year rich in innovation and creativity. We launched our Fish-Free Omega-3 Vitamins in May 2020 and our Yummy Iron Gummies in October 2020. We used the same eco-friendly packaging and natural ingredients. 2021 will be a year full of surprises. So stay tuned…
100% plastic-free and recyclable packaging
As passionate supporters of vegan-diets, it should come as no surprise that we are also passionate about preserving the environment. Our unique packaging is completely plastic-free and environmentally friendly.
Getting your daily dose of vitamins and minerals through diet alone can be extremely difficult, especially for a vegan or plant-based diet. This is why our complete range of vitamins is the perfect solution to top you up with essential nutrients while respecting the planet.
Discover our yummy and nutritive Multivitamin, Fish-Free Omega-3, Iron, and our special Bundle now. Kids and adults love them!
Our new Fish-free Omega 3 gummies are packed full of vegan omega-3 from marine algae, made with natural colours and flavours, zero animal products and 100% recyclable packaging. Providing a huge 80mg DHA per daily dose, they help to maintain healthy eyes, skin, heart and brain — especially important during childhood development. A great-tasting orange flavoured alternative, kinder to our oceans and sea-life. To date, there is no official recommended daily allowance of DHA, so we would always advise taking these as part of a healthy and balanced diet.
Using only naturally-derived flavours and colours, your daily dose of Fish-Free Omega-3 gives you a delicious boost of DHA. DHA is the most bioavailable fatty acid in omega-3, and ours is extracted and purified from sustainably sourced marine algae. Not only that – you’ll also get an immune boost from vitamin E! We use the natural sweetness of real oranges and a pinch of unrefined beet sugar — just a sixth of a teaspoon per portion.
Better for Everyone:
Humans usually get their omega-3 from eating seafood, but this is riddled with problems. It’s not vegan, it’s full of chemical and metal contaminants, and it’s not sustainable – fishing nets make up a shocking 46% of ocean plastic pollution.
Did you know that omega-3 is only found in fish because they directly or indirectly consume algae? That’s why we’ve extracted our omega-3 straight from the source.
Our marine algae oil is sustainably produced and carefully purified to give you all the great nutrients and none of the heavy metal contaminants.
The Multivitamin for Vegans
An eco-friendly gummy multivitamin formulated by vegan pharmacists specifically for the plant-based diet. Our flagship multivitamin contains vitamins B12, B6 and D3 plus folic acid, selenium and iodine – providing everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Using only naturally-derived flavours and colours, The Original keeps you topped up on vitamins B6, B12 and D3, iodide, selenium and folic acid.
Our Original gummies have the natural sweetness of real strawberries and a pinch of unrefined cane sugar — just a sixth of a teaspoon per portion. Black carrot extract gives them their juicy red colour.
Our new vegan-friendly Iron gummies are the perfect accompaniment to our Multivitamin and Omega-3 lines. As always, they’re certified vegan by The Vegan Society and contain no artificial colours or flavourings. Iron is an essential nutrient where getting your daily dose can help to prevent anaemia, which manifests as tiredness and a lack of energy.
Using only naturally-derived flavours and colours and sweeteners, we’re bringing you your daily dose of ferrous iron in the most delicious way. No more pongy pills: just 2 blackberry flavoured gummy bears gives you an amazing 14mg of iron. That covers the full RDI for a female adult, so it’s more than enough for everyone!
Our Iron gummies have the natural sweetness and flavour of real blackberries, with a pinch of unrefined beet sugar. Black carrot extract gives them their deep purple colour.
We want to be the most sustainable food supplement provider, anywhere. Ever. So, how do we do it?
100% Plastic-Free and Recyclable Packaging
Sustainability is extremely important to us. At Vegums, we use Jiffy Green envelopes. They are padded kraft paper bags, filled with recycled macerated paper. Thanks to them, your deliveries are kept safe and secure, without the need for a dirty great carbon footprint.
Your first order from Vegums comes with a cardboard tube to store your Vegums gummy vitamins. These can be recycled or upcycled. We have seen many examples of how you can recycle them: e.g. plant pots, pen holders, coffee pots, money boxes, and even a piggy bank!
The Metal Tin
Your first Vegums order will also include a click-clack metal tin. Each tin can store a month’s supply of Vegums vitamins (Iron, Omega-3, or the Multivitamin) — perfect for keeping topped up on the go.
Our wrappers are plastic-free cellulose bags made from cornstarch. They are 100% biodegradable and can be thrown straight in your compost bin along with your potato peelings.
Online Shopping VS Traditional Shopping
According to MIT research, online shopping is more eco-friendly than going to a brick-and-mortar store, while rushed shipping like Amazon Prime is significantly worse for the environment. As sustainability is extremely important to us, we only use existing UK postal routes and do not offer rushed shipping. Indeed, Vegums orders usually take between 2 and 4 working days to arrive. This ensures you are shopping in the most environmentally friendly way.
Made Cruelty Free in the North West
We will only ever use 100% naturally-derived ingredients. All ingredients are traced back to their source to make sure animal products were not used at any stage. This means using unrefined cane sugar and gelling agents derived from citrus peel.
