OUR STORY

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.

 

WHO ARE THE FOUNDERS OF NÔGEL?

LAURA

The first time I started using iron food supplements was when my blood test showed low ferritin levels. As there were a lot of different iron food supplements on the market, I first decided to find out which iron form was recommended and why. Thanks to the fact that we were already conducting a research project on nettle, the idea to develop a high-quality iron food supplement in co-operation with experts in the field of food supplements was born. It all started with one iron supplement.

My experience with Nôgel

During pregnancy I supplemented with our first Iron 20 mg supplement – hemoglobin and ferritin levels remained good during and after pregnancy. Now you can find D3-drops and D3-drops for babies from my shelf.

Education

I am currently studying nutrition science – metabolism of vitamins and minerals is just a small part of the world of (bio)chemistry, biology and physiology. I have also MSc of Business Administration in quantitative finance.

BIRGIT

The first time I had to use iron food supplements was in my teens, when I was prescribed strong iron pills. During the whole treatment period, I had a lot stomach problems, at the time I ignored it because I thought that it was a normal side effect. Years later, when I was faced with the same problem again, I did some homework. In 2017, me and Laura had an idea – to develop an iron food supplement with an ingredients list simple. An exciting product development phase and testing began. If you’re faced with the same problem as I was at that time, try Nôgel.

My experience with Nôgel

During pregnancy I used Iron 30 mg – blood test and iron stores were good and I felt great during whole pregnancy. Now I use D3-drops – and for baby of course D3-drops for babies.
