Vital began in 2000 with the development of Vital Greens, the all-in-one superior multi-nutrient supplement, that made the brand famous.
Developed by two Naturopaths and Sydney friends, Stephen Sprada and Shane Sullivan.
The year 2000 was the birth of Vital, as they made the product to order in a garage in the Western suburbs of Sydney, Australia.
At the end of the 20th century Stephen and Shane couldn’t ignore the influx of clients that were experiencing gut, bowel, and digestive issues.
At this time, there had been a growing emphasis on chronic illnesses and lifestyle-related morbidity rather than acute illnesses. As a result, people began seeking greater levels of control and empowerment around their lives, with consumers educating themselves on health, nutrition, diseases and alternative therapies.
Although many of their clients were taking various tablets (vitamins, minerals, herbs) their bodies weren’t positively reacting to the natural medications. For naturopaths this seemed unnatural and prompted the need for further research.
Stephen and Shane began to understand the body’s inability to absorb tablets, in addition to the modern day diet which wasn’t providing the recommended nutrients for healthy living.
With a dedication to researching and analysing an extensive list of ingredients from around the world, Shane and Stephen developed, what they believed to be the most health beneficial formula. A complex, multi nutrient formulation with the best absorption to ensure their clients were benefiting from every ingredient, helping relieve symptoms and prevent illness.
The success of the Vital business since 2000 had meant Stephen and Shane were unable to produce enough supply for the demands of their consumers. In 2011 Martin and Pleasance Pty Ltd acquired Vital, with 2 products under the brand, Vital Greens and Vital Protein. Martin and Pleasance dedicates itself to providing innovative, high quality products and strive to stay integral to their business and industry.
Stephen and Shane are still involved in all Vital new product development, as well as customer queries and will involve themselves in brand events when available.
Proudly Made in Australia.
