bodykind’s quest for our new Quest supplements

Our latest new arrival at bodykind, the Quest range, has finally been added to our selection of premium quality natural health supplements which is both cost effective and of the highest quality.   In this blog we are going to tell you all about the range and some of the great supplements you can try right now.

Quest Vitamins is the UK’s leading independent manufacturer of specialist health supplements.  The current Quest range covers 74 formulas and includes vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids and specialist probiotics.

Quest Supplements
Quest Vitamins have always been and remain focussed on manufacturing the highest quality nutritional supplements that you can take with confidence.

Established in 1983, Quest is an independent company dedicated to manufacturing nutritional supplements of the highest quality and each Quest product is backed by scientific research, pure raw materials and industry leading manufacturing standards and techniques.

Quest products all feature Intelligent Nutrition Systems, a set of formulation and manufacturing standards developed in-house by Quest that establish a benchmark for other nutritional supplements. But what are Intelligent Nutrition Systems I hear you ask? Well, the experts at Quest have given us this handy guide…

INTELLIGENT NUTRITION SYSTEMS:

Bio Balance:
Holistic formulations specifically designed not to interfere with other nutrients in the body and enhance the absorption of key nutrients. Learning from nature’s example, Quest takes in to account the natural synergies and competition that exists between nutrients by:

– Always including complementary nutrients in a formulation that will enhance the absorption of the key active nutrients
– Always including additional nutrients to ensure a product will work without adversely interfering with the mat

Bio Absorb:
100% amino acid blended minerals, which mimic the natural way the body absorbs minerals from food, thereby maximising absorption of the mineral supplement.

The neutral electric charge of amino acid blended minerals ensures that the minerals will not adhere to the GI tract, will not cause gastro intestinal side-effects and will be better absorbed.

Bio Release:
Within the Quest range customers can choose, depending on their individual requirements, between 6 hour timed-release products, which lead to prolonged supplementation and 30 minute quick-release products for maximum and rapid tissue saturation.

Max Power:
Quest products provide the correct potency of nutrients based on scientific research to provide maximum efficacy, but always within the upper safe limits.

Min Process:
As an in-house manufacturer, Quest strives to update and innovate manufacturing methods to make use of ingredients in the most sensitive way.

Quest only uses direct compression tableting technology, avoiding completely the commonly used wet granulation methods. Tablet manufacturing with ‘wet granulation’ methods uses undesirable solvents and subjects ingredients to an intensive and time-consuming manufacturing process. Quest also uses advanced tablet coating technology that subjects the tablets to lower temperatures and for shorter periods than conventional coating processes.

DLPA and Turmeric
Quest is committed to new product development and formulating new products backed by established scientific evidence.

NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT:
Quest is committed to new product development and formulating new products backed by established scientific evidence.  Such as DLPA & Turmeric for pain and inflammation one of the company’s signature products.

IN-HOUSE MANUFACTURING:
In an industry where the use of third-party contract manufacturers is normal practice, Quest remains committed to 100% in-house manufacturing. Quest also manufacture their own probiotics in house, which is unheard of in this industry and have a team of 12 in-house micro-biologists dedicated to Quest unique probiotic range.

Quest Vitamins have always been and remain focussed on manufacturing the highest quality nutritional supplements that you can take with confidence. See our entire range of Quest supplements now available at bodykind including Vitamins, Minerals, Probiotics, Herbs, Essential Fatty Acids and Glucosamine Sulphate. We hope you like them as much as we do!
