Why did we create a vegan multi-nutrient?

Well, we actually didn't set out to!

Here's the full story...

During his Masters degree in micronutrient therapy and regulatory medicine, Niko Rittenau spent many months researching nutrient deficiencies in the Western world. He found that, thanks to industrial farming and poor soil quality, many of us are not getting all of the essential vitamins and minerals that we need.

As his research progressed, Niko found a common pattern of nutrient deficiencies in subjects following a vegan or vegetarian diet. Although their levels of many key nutrients were higher, there were also some gaps in their nutrient profiles that could be fixed by sensible supplementation. As a result, Niko set out on a mission to find the highest quality supplement to meet their needs.

After searching the market far and wide, Niko couldn’t find a suitable supplement that was up to date with the latest scientific research. It wasn't just about finding the right vitamins and minerals, but finding the right forms and quantities of each nutrient too.

Instead of giving up, Niko contacted Vivo Life, as it was the only company he trusted to create the most balanced and comprehensive vegan multinutrient on the planet. After examining more than 80 pages of his scientific literature, we were fully on board; so we teamed up with Niko and spent the next year working together researching, formulating and developing this product.

The result: the world’s highest quality multinutrient, designed to meet all of your needs when following a plant based diet, and at the most affordable price possible.

What's Inside?

Our Vegan Multinutrient is formulated based on the most cutting edge scientific research on nutrient intake and bioavailability.

How It Works

Watch this video to learn more about our compostable packaging.


According to a 2018 study by Clean Label Project, alarming levels of heavy metals such as arsenic, mercury and lead have been found in some of the most popular protein products on the market.



Heavy metals find their way into protein powders when big brands grow ingredients on huge industrial farms with poor soil quality and heavy reliance on chemical fertilisers and pesticides. They then skip the all important heavy metal checks to save their precious profit margins, resulting in protein powders that are potentially toxic to our health.

Seeing this research made us even more determined to produce the healthiest, cleanest and safest on the planet. This is why we only source the highest quality ingredients and batch test our products to ensure they are 100% safe.



To ensure we are using the highest quality ingredients possible we only work with suppliers, farmers and growers that we know and trust.

All of our suppliers meet strict EU compliance and quality control standards, and grow according to our VGANIC brand promise, so we can guarantee that no corners are being cut when growing our ingredients.


All of the ingredients we use in our products are tested at the source for heavy metals and other contaminants. This way we can guarantee that they are safe before they even come into our manufacturing facility.


All of our products are third party tested for heavy metals and other contaminants. To see our latest lab results click the button above to download the report.

This multinutrient has been formulated specifically to address the most common potential deficiencies found on a vegan and vegetarian diet. However, there are many crossovers with an omnivorous diet, and it is perfectly safe and healthy to take it if you still consume animal products. Yes! WHOLE is not designed to act as a multinutrient, but as a nutritious base for a balanced meal. It can be taken alongside the Vegan Multinutrient in the same way that we also encourage you to eat a balanced and nutritious diet.

Our bodies only absorb a fraction of the B12 that we consume. The most up to date literature on B12 shows that we absorb approximately 1.5mcg through a process called intrinsic factor, and then a further 1-2% of the total amount through a process called passive diffusion. Therefore, if you consume 100mcg of B12 (4000% RDA), then you only absorb 1.5mcg (intrinsic factor) + 1 to 2 mcg (passive diffusion) meaning that a total of 2.5 - 3.5mcg is absorbed (75 - 120% RDA)

Our Vegan Multinutrient provides 20mcg of vitamin B12, split up into two daily dosages of 10mcg, to optimise absorption through intrinsic factor whilst ensuring you consume a safe and effective amount of vitamin B12.

Our Vegan Multinutrient has been formulated based on more than 80 pages of scientific literature to create the most balanced and comprehensive multinutrient on the market. For more information .

Our Vegan Multinutrient is also third party tested for quality and accuracy, to ensure that all claims on the packaging are entirely accurate and all nutrients are provided in safe and synergistic dosages.

We recommend speaking to your doctor or healthcare practitioner before making any dietary changes whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. The Vegan Multinutrient is made for healthy male and female adults without any previous medical conditions and with a normal weight when following a plant based diet. Due to the similar nutritional needs the Vegan Multinutrient can be taken by adolescents at the age of 13 with the same doses (2 capsules a day with time lag). It is not suitable for children under the age of 13.
THRIVE is our most complete multinutrient, which provides not only vitamins and minerals but also extra superfoods, greens, probiotics and neuroprotective herbs. There is no need to take both products together.

In an ideal world, no one would ever have to take a multinutrient. Unfortunately due to industrial food production, poor soil quality, excessive sanitation and environmental factors it is harder than ever before to get all of the nutrients you need to stay healthy. That goes for whether you are following a plant based diet or not!

This multinutrient has been formulated based on the most up to date scientific literature, to cover all of the most common potential deficiencies that may occur when following a plant based diet. By providing these nutrients in safe and synergistic quantities, it allows vegans and vegetarians to be more flexible with their food choices on a daily basis.

For more information

If you are taking the Vegan Multinutrient you do not need to supplement B12 and D3 separately. However you can use them for a more therapeutic dosage, rather than a daily maintenance dosage, if required.

We do recommend you continue to supplement with Omega 3, in order to meet your daily requirements for long chain omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.

Due to the content of iodine, we recommend talking to your doctor if you suffer from elevated or depressed thyroid function. For best results we recommend taking one tablet twice daily 4 hours apart, ideally with food. They can be consumed at any time, morning or evening. If you buy two, you’ll get 5% off your order, and if you buy three, you’ll get 10% off.However, the most convenient way to never run out of the Vegan Multinutrient is to subscribe! This will save you 15% on the RRP, and there’s no obligations - we’ll contact you before each shipment, so you have the opportunity to pause an order if you wish!
