Beauty and health from the inside out

We all want to look and feel good. Maintaining a healthy diet, getting plenty of regular exercise along with avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption will always be the best ways to support healthy ageing, but vitamins and supplements are here to help if you have a vitamin deficiency that cannot be addressed by your diet alone.

From collagen to vitamin A or CoQ10, your Discount Drug Stores team is here to help you with advice on the A–Z of vitamins.

Always read the label. Follow directions for use. If symptoms persist, change or worsen talk to your health professional. Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.

  • CoQ10 is an antioxidant that plays an essential role in energy production and helps protect against cellular damage.1 + CoQ10 may work by reducing oxidative stress, a condition characterised by a build up of free radicals.
  • As the main causes of aging include accumulated cellular damage caused by free radicals, CoQ10 may help slow age-related physical decline.2

  • Collagen is our body’s most abundant protein. It’s an important component in connective tissue and plays a key role in strengthening our bones and maintaining the health of our skin.
  • As we all age, the production of collagen, which helps maintain our skin’s structure, slows down, leading to a loss of elasticity and signs of ageing like wrinkles and dry skin.3

  • Vitamin A is an essential nutrient that supports skin, hair and eye function. There are two forms of vitamin A: retinoids and carotenoids. Both types are converted to retinol by the liver, where it’s stored or transported by your lymphatic system to cells throughout the body.
  • Retinol is a popular ingredient in skincare and vitamin supplements today as it stimulates production of new skin cells.4

  • Vitamin B12 plays an important role in cell production, and it’s important to maintain a healthy amount of vitamin B12 to promote healthy hair, nails and skin.
  • As vitamin B12 is only found in animal products if you eat a plant-based diet that is not fortified with B12, speak to your Discount Drug Stores pharmacist to see if a B12 supplement may be right for you.5
