Wellteen Research

Summary

The Wellteen Plus formula, on which the Wellteen Her Plus and Wellteen Him Plus have been based, was extensively studied by the University of Oxford, with 196 healthy children aged 13 – 16 years old attending the Robert Clack secondary school in East London. This ground-breaking trial, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, gave suggestive evidence for the first time that a specific vitamin, mineral and Omega-3 fatty acid supplement may positively affect the behaviour of healthy UK teenagers, with high baseline rates of misbehaviour.

A ground-breaking clinical trial, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, has given suggestive evidence for the first time that a specific vitamin, mineral and omega-3 fatty acid supplement (WellTeen Plus, Vitabiotics London) may affect the behaviours of UK teenagers, with high baseline rates of misbehaviour.
The study was conducted by the University of Oxford, with 196 healthy children aged 13 – 16 years old attending the Robert Clack secondary school in East London. The children were enrolled into the 12 week double-blind randomised placebo-controlled trial and split into two groups. One group was given the nutritional supplements while the other group was given placebos.
Blood samples were taken to measure the change in vitamin, mineral and omega-3 levels during the study. These were found to be low at the start of the study and significantly improved in the group receiving the nutrient supplements over the 12 weeks.
Behaviour change was measured using the Conner's scale and school disciplinary records. Using the disruptive behaviour scale, the results showed that in those with high rates of misbehaviour, the behaviour in the students receiving the supplements improved, while the behaviour of the pupils receiving the placebo worsened.
