The Founder's Mission 
Jules 
Miller, The Nue Co.'s founder, is on a mission: Changing the way we think about our health and taking supplements. She found out that over 50% of the ingredients in most supplements are actually just chemical preservatives and fillers. Miller figured there must be a better way. The Nue Co. lab is using its 20+ years of experience to bring clarity to the all-too-often confusing supplement market. With The Nue Co., every ingredient is active, every gram is effective and every nutrient is absorbed. All formulas are free from toxic preservatives, additives, flavorings, and sweeteners. Organic, vegan, and gluten-free where possible. Always cruelty-free. Also, 95% of the materials are infinitely recyclable. And hey, their pots and pipettes look pretty cool on your shelf too. 

The Collection decoded

GUT HEALTH 

Debloat + 60 capsules - 
no more suffering from IBS and other digestive issues
Improves break down of food Your mouth, stomach, pancreas, and small intestine all make protein enzymes that help to break down your food, meaning you can absorb the full nutritional profile of what you’re eating. Digestive enzymes are thought to be hugely beneficial for people suffering from IBS and other digestive issues.
Helps digestive issues The use of licorice root for digestive issues can be traced back thousands of years, commonly used within Ayurvedic medicine to pacify “altered pitta”, reduce heartburn and heal ulcers. The extract we’re working with has been clinically proven to promote anti-ulcer activity, work as a spasmolytic (reduce cramps) and have immunomodulatory properties.
Relieves bloating and abdominal pain Tumeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic (i.e. helps to ease cramps) with carminative properties. Studies show that daily supplementation of turmeric can be beneficial for IBS symptoms, helping to relieve bloating and abdominal pain.
How and When Twice a day (morning and evening) with food and water.


Regularity Relief 30 sachets - for when you feel constipated
Helps to relieve constipation Magnesium citrate works as an osmotic laxative, helping to relieve occasional to moderate constipation by drawing water into the colon and softening stools. Studies have shown that low magnesium levels often correlate to high levels of constipation.
Supports the digestive system Traditionally been used as a digestive and constipation support for many years, marshmallow root’s medicinal properties come from the mucilage, or sap-like substance, which contains antioxidants. Research suggests that it forms a coating over the digestive tract which may help with digestive issues such as ulcers and constipation.
How and When 
One packet daily, at night for best results. Empty one packet into a small amount of hot water, allow to fizz and dissolve, then drink.

Digest Start Drops 30ml - kick-starts slow digestion

How and When 
Daily or as needed, up to three times per day. One full dropper onto the tongue, 15 minutes before eating.

SKIN

Skin Hydrator 30 capsules - a long cool drink for dry, irritable skin
Hydrates and smoothes the skin Collagen is a protein that is responsible for skin’s structure. It has been shown to reduce wrinkles, increase skin hydration, and keep joints strong and flexible. Skin Hydrator uses hydrolyzed collagen, or collagen peptides, which is more easily absorbed and used by the body.

Supports metabolism and skin health Amla Berry, or Indian Gooseberry, is one of the most important plants in Ayurvedic medicine. It is used for everything from supporting a healthy metabolism to liver and heart health, and of course, aiding skin health.
Keeps skin firm and healthy When Beta-Carotene is ingested, it is converted to Vitamin A in our bodies (think ingestible retinol), a powerful antioxidant which is essential for healthy skin. Vitamin A also stimulates fibroblasts - the cells responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy at the deepest layer.
