Nôgel was founded in 2017 after an innovation project in co-operation with Estonian University of Life Sciences, when two Estonian girls – Laura and Birgit – had trouble increasing their body iron levels and not many high-quality and efficient iron supplements were available on the market. This is how the idea of creating an iron food supplement developed in Estonia was born, where in addition to high bioavailability iron bisglycinate only four natural ingredients would be used.
It is very important to us that all ingredients are pure and natural, so we decided firmly to use only ingredients harvested without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. It also made sense to pack the supplement that we put so much effort into environmentally friendly packages. Nature friends as we are, we added another nice feature to the product – in co-operation with Estonian State Forest Management Centre we plant a tree in Estonia for every jar sold and donate 5 cents to local children´s charity for every other product sold.
Did you know that …
nettle in dialectic Estonian is called ’nogulane’? This is where the name Nôgel comes from.
