How Supplements Work in the Body

Supplements can change people’s lives.


We know that might sound slightly far-fetched if you’re new to the supplements world, but the right supplement can really make a difference in someone’s life.


Greater focus and clarity of thinking, sounder sleep, and a proper zest for life, all are things which people strive for and we believe that the right supplement can truly deliver under the right circumstances.


If you’re new to supplements, we’re going to look at how they work within the body, what they actually do, and how that can have incredible positive impacts.


Reasons to Take Supplements


We’ve mentioned before, but there are various reasons for taking supplements.


Every person is slightly different, and as a result, the reasons for taking any kind of supplement can be unique and relative to the individual.


That being said, there are a few common reasons to highlight.


Beyond taking dietary supplements, generally used to boost the likes of vitamin, protein or omega intake, the most common reasons usually centre on energy, stress and sleep.


The modern world can take a toll on our bodies. From increased work or family stresses to the prevalence of excess screen time and blue light, it’s easy to see how common issues can become chronic over time.


You can dive into some of the most common issues, in more detail, here.


What Do Supplements Do?


Supplements exist to bridge a gap.


Whether you’re tired, stressed, or lacking in energy, the right kind of supplement can aid and enhance healthy diet and lifestyle habits.




Our Calm Complex features a pillar ingredient called KSM-66® Ashwagandha, which comes from the Ashwagandha root found in India that has been used as a stress reliever tonic for generations. It does this by lowering cortisol levels and supporting the production of mood-stabilising brain chemicals. It literally regulates the brain and encourages a calmer outlook via these chemical changes.


Thrive features Hydrocurc®, which is an award-winning branded Turmeric extract. This extract has also been used for thousands of years, to increase energy and focus, because it has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and it has been shown to relieve issues of acid and bile overproduction within the body. By tackling these issues, this pillar supplement ingredient encourages enhanced recovery and performance within the body.


Our other pillar ingredient, affron®, is a Saffron extract known to have a natural calming effect. It contains two chemicals, crocin and crocetin, which are believed to help aid learning and memory function. All of this combines to help destress and calm the person ingesting affron®, perfect for aiding more sound and restful sleep.   


As you can see, essentially by harnessing the power of incredible natural ingredients, supplements can give you access to various positive mood and chemical-altering complexes. What many have forgotten, however, is that traditional medicine has served us for thousands of years and the world is full of powerful ingredients bursting with the natural solutions we need.
