Nutrigold was founded in 1999 by naturopaths and scientists, with an extensive research and clinical background in the nutritional health field with the objective of serving the needs of fellow practitioners and their clients. After many years of intense and ongoing development, our unique range of products and education services have helped us achieve a well-deserved reputation as one of the country’s leading brands supplying UK Health Practitioners and people seeking the very best in food supplements for their health and wellbeing
Along the way we have compiled extensive scientific research to ensure our customers understand the best way to achieve the optimum effects from our formulations, which are delivered in a safe, responsible manner.
Whilst we remain wedded to the statement attributed to Hippocrates “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” we also understand that food alone may not be enough to ensure you maintain and achieve your optimal wellbeing and high quality absorbable food supplements may be required to achieve and maintain this goal. Leaning on a mixture of naturopathic principles, nutrition science, and supported by contemporary research we have, and continue to develop safe and effective food supplements to help you, your clients and your family.
Nutrigold strives to be more than just another supplement supplier to help you balance you nutritional needs to optimise and maintain your health; we focus on the form of our nutrients and in particular bioavailability. This is important because the efficiency with which your system absorbs the key nutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, herbs or botanicals) affects both the speed and level of positive health effects, as well impacting on the cost of your supplement programme.
We at Nutrigold are proud to be considered part of your personal support team, and thank you for choosing and trusting us and our products with your health and that of others you recommend us to – it is an honour to be valued as such.

You can then move the pack to your chosen area, packing for another 30 - 60 minutes, or as directed by a practitioner. The pack can be placed back into the plastic bag provided and stored in the fridge. The castor oil pack can be re-used up to 30 times. Apply extra castor oil to the pack as needed on each application.
