"Many people are looking for that extra help when it comes to maintaining their general health and wellbeing"
Demand for vitamin supplements has soared amongst UK adults due to the additional pressure caused by going back to the office and children being back at school.
All-natural vitamin patch company TheVitCo said it had seen a 120 per cent rise in sales since the end of the summer holidays and the move away from working from home.
It said sales were particularly high when it came to patches helping people combat things such as anxiety, depression, tiredness, and poor sleeping patterns.
The return to playing business-social sports such as golf, and team sports at the weekend, has also seen a large rise in copper patches to tackle pain relief and niggles.
TheVitCo (thevitco.com), based at Riversway Business Village, Preston, supplies innovative vitamin and supplement formulas without prescription, through its VitPatch range.
Director Jack Taylor said its Multivitamin and Energy Boost B12 patches in particular had become extremely popular.
He said: “There is no doubt that after a lengthy period of time when Covid forced people to work from home, things are getting back to normal and more and more people are going back into the office.
“That brings with it the stress of the commute and extra all-round anxiety associated with doing something people are no longer used to.
“When you add that to the stress of the children being back at school, then many people are looking for that extra help when it comes to maintaining their general health and wellbeing.
“Then we have those people who are starting to play sports again, particularly golf, with business colleagues or socially and who are picking up niggles or need pain relief after so long off the course.”
TheVitCo was launched earlier this year to meet demand for an alternative and more effective delivery method for vitamins and nutrients than the traditional pills, powders, and shakes.
