It doesn’t matter how many supplements you swallow if they don’t contain enough of the active ingredients. Why bother? You may as well pop popcorn, or after-dinner mints. Question is, how much is really enough? The Real Thing does the research so you don’t have to.

THE MESSAGE: Every ingredient in every one of our products is delivered at optimal concentration for optimal health benefits. We know what you need. And we’re providing it.

We don’t like clutter. We don’t like contaminants. And we certainly don’t like chemicals. We do like super-pure ingredients, and we want nothing to get in their way.

THE MESSAGE: Our products are all-natural and purified to eliminate toxins, microorganisms and contaminants. They’re MCC-approved and free of colourants, flavourants, preservatives, binders, fillers, tableting aids and any other additives that might dilute or compromise the good bits. That’s what makes them the real thing.

3. GREEN INGREDIENTS. Green is our favourite colour. It goes with everything we do. Why? Because really healthy health food supplements have to be healthy for the Earth too. It may be cheesy. But it’s also true.

THE MESSAGE: We’ve scrutinised every supplier’s facilities, manufacturing processes and farming methods. We’ve sourced ingredients that are pesticide, herbicide and heavy-metal free. Wherever possible, they’re also 100% wild-harvested or organic. And we’re 100% proud of it.

4. FRESH IDEAS. We’re not interested in doing what’s been done before. We want to do things better, newer, smarter and healthier. That’s why we’re constantly tracking international health research and trends. We’re like the Madonna of health products. Always changing (but we’re only into natural supplements).

THE MESSAGE: We aim to keep bringing brand-new supplement concepts to the South African industry. Cutting-edge compounds, inventive formulae, more potent mixes and ever-purer products. Watch this space.

5. SURPRISING PRICES. The highest quality usually comes at the highest price. But not when it’s The Real Thing. We buy in bulk, directly from the farmers and producers, so we keep costs down, quality up and everybody happy.

THE MESSAGE: Holistic health is accessible and sustainable. We’re working to keep it that way.
