Wellteen ReviewsWrite a review
"We started giving our son these about a month ago and the difference is very noticeable. His attention is a lot better and he is loving taking them. Getting any healthy food into him is hard so we know these vitamins are the next best thing to keep his health in tip top condition. The whole family are taking vitamins now so we all take them at the same time, and the 3 for 2 offer is fantastic. We have done the subscribe thing so we get the wellteen vitamins monthly."Mr C Murray , United Kingdom
"Having used your Wellteen Her products for a couple of months, I have found that I'm less tired after training and more alert during school work, not to mention the benefit they've had on my skin too, my spots had cleared up and my lovely skin is back. I've noticed a big difference when I'm in my race car too, I'm able to keep focus longer and my concentration is better, even in the extreme heat of the cockpit which runs at around 40 degrees. Great products. Thank you Vitabiotics "

"Just wanted to tell you that our daughter took a Wellteen every day during her recent GCSEs and she was healthy throughout, despite the stress of exam-taking.”"Ms C Hindle , United Kingdom
"The best vitamins I can give my daughter who is a very picky eater. Exceptional value for money. I am confident in knowing that by giving her the best quality vitamins she remains healthy. I would not buy any other brand. My daughter likes Wellteen as they do not taste horrid and can be swallowed easily. No nasty indigestion from them either. So nice to know that kids are happy to take them. Well done Vitabiotics, you are champion in our house. "Miss Christine Barnes , Scotland
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.

A ground-breaking clinical trial, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, has given 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.
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 the behaviour in the students receiving the supplements improved, while the behaviour of the pupils receiving the placebo worsened.

Be inspired by a Diana Award winner: Ayrton Cable
Multi-award winning Ayrton Cable is one of the world’s leading young social campaigners. Since he spoke in Parliament at the age of 9, launching a national campaign with four major Non Governmental Organisations (Compassion in World Farming, RSPCA, WSPA, and the Soil Association) for more ethical food, Ayrton has mostly campaigned on issues relating to how we can feed the world sustainably. His ethical food campaign film "How was this Animal Kept?", premiered in Parliament, is now widely shown in schools as part of the Geography and Citizenship curriculums.
After travelling to Malawi with ITV and Tearfund and spending time with a boy his age in a rural village near Lilongwe, Ayrton founded the Humanitarian Water and Food Youth Award, challenging young people to feed everyone in the world with no one left out. 100,000 children will participate in 2015/16, from 1,400 schools in a dozen countries with the first international award ceremony in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Ayrton has also campaigned on conflict minerals, taking photos for Congo Calling's 'Demand a Fair Trade Mobile Phone' campaign. He also worked alongside Formula 1 legend Sir Jackie Stewart on dyslexia education in schools. Ayrton has received major awards in the UK for youth social action, including (in chronological order) : High Commendation from the Parliamentary Education Authority, a Diana Award for campaigning, a Live Unltd Award for social entrepreneurship, and Prince Charles' Jubilee Step up to Serve Award and Ambassadorship for service. He has also been recognised by the British Red Cross for his humanitarian work and by Amnesty International for his photojournalism, and was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize.
Ayrton has shared speaking platforms with royalty, academics and leading politicians. He is one of the youngest TEDx speakers. His films have also shown on International School Meals Day in front of the World Bank, and USAID, and also at WE Day at Wembley Arena in front of many celebrities and over 10,000 young people.
Wellkid and Wellteen are extremely proud to be working with Ayrton and the Diana Award.
