Nourished Partners with Colgate to Launch Nutristacks
Nourished Partners with Colgate to Launch Nutristacks.

Experts in personalised nutrition, Nourished, has teamed up with oral care industry leaders Colgate to create a first-of-its-kind product for total oral wellbeing on the go. 

March 2022

Birmingham-based health tech start-up Nourished has today announced the launch of Nutristacks, an innovative new range of 3D printed vitamin gummies that have been developed in partnership with Colgate, the world leaders in Oral Care. The gummies are available for purchase in the UK.

Understanding that finding a tailored healthcare product specific to your lifestyle is near impossible, the innovative new product range has been developed by Nourished and Colgate to provide consumers with an effective daily oral health supplement, with added benefits for mind and body that align with personal wellbeing goals.

What’s more, each Nutritstack is 3D printed on demand to ensure optimum efficacy and higher absorption levels.

With the pandemic severely limiting access to dentistry services in recent years, maintaining and supporting our oral health at home has never been more vital. According to NHS data, only 44.5% of UK adults and just 29.8% of children were seen by an NHS dentist in the 24 months to December 2020*. In identifying a need for effective oral health products that could easily be built into daily routines alongside regular brushing and flossing, Nourished and Colgate have combined their expertise to develop Nutristacks. 

Individually wrapped in plastic-free home compostable packaging, Nutristacks can easily be carried around in your handbag or pocket to be conveniently consumed on the go.

The range is made up of five key blends, all designed to nourish teeth, strengthen enamel, and control the mouth’s pH levels. This is achieved with the use of three core ingredients:

  1. Arginine diffuses around teeth to energise good bacteria in the mouth and strengthen the body’s natural defence against cavities.

  2. Xylitol is used to help lower acid production by bacteria, protecting the enamel strength.

  3. Calcium supports a healthier pH in the mouth and the maintenance of normal teeth.

Nutristacks each contain a blend of 6 different active ingredients: Energy, Zen, Glow, Focus and Immunity:

  • Energy Nutristacks are packed with Ginseng – a powerful nutrient that can boost energy levels, whilst reducing oxidative stress. 

  • Zen Nutristacks are packed with Scutell’Up – a powerful medicinal plant that can decrease stress hormone levels, anxiety and depression.

  • Glow Nutristacks are packed with Vitamin E – a powerful nutrient used to defend against inflammation and free radicals, by maintaining healthy skin and eyes. 

  • Focus Nutristacks are packed with CoQ10 – a powerful nutrient that helps augment the immune system, whilst improving energy levels. 

  • Immunity Nutristacks are packed with Ginger – a powerful multi-purpose ingredient used to help strengthen the immune system.

Melissa Snover, CEO & Founder of Nourished says:

“We are delighted to be partnering with industry world leaders, Colgate, to deliver this exciting development in personal nutrition – combining our innovative 3D printing technology with Colgate’s unmatched expertise in oral care. Following a difficult period for the nation’s oral health, Nutristacks were created with busy lives and total wellbeing in mind.

Oral health is such a key part of our overall wellbeing, but with so many things to consider when it comes to our health, it is often overlooked. Incorporating Nutristacks into your daily routine is an easy, effective way to maintain good oral health whilst simultaneously boosting other aspects of our wellbeing, from energy levels to immunity.”

Pat Verduin, Chief Technology Officer for Colgate-Palmolive says:

“Colgate is reimagining a healthier future for all. One way we fulfil that purpose is by creating additional ways to take charge of your oral health by understanding the links between oral health and overall health and wellbeing -- what we call Know Your OQ or oral health quotient. We’re excited by this partnership with Nourished and the potential of their technology and how Nutristacks can be added to good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist to improve oral health.
