Brain fog, lack of focus and chronic stress are just some of the symptoms many of us have come to accept from the demands of modern life. But it doesn't have to be that way. Such is the thinking behind Heights, a UK-based wellness startup whose Smart Supplement is designed to improve cognitive function and make a real difference to brain health. It's packed with 20 essential nutrients, including vitamins B12, D, E and A as well as omega 3 oil, which are combined for maximum absorption in impactful quantities.

The company was founded in 2018 by friends Dan Murray-Serter and Joel Freeman, whose own personal struggles with mental and physical health inspired them to start researching neuroplasticity – the brain's ability to continuously reorganise and change throughout our lifetimes. The pair teamed up with neuroscientist Dr Tara Swart and clinical dietician Sophie Medlin, who co-developed the Smart Supplement formula, drawing on their many decades of experience. Three years on and thousands of positive testimonials later (even Stephen Fry is a fan), Heights has become the highest-rated braincare company in the world. Curious to know more? Read on for three reasons why the Heights Smart Supplement should become part of your daily routine.

1. It actually works

"Most supplements are a waste of time and money," says Dr. Swart. "That's what we found when we put the industry under the microscope. Ineffective ingredients, in minimal quantities, packed with fillers and toxins." Thankfully, that's not the case with the Smart Supplement. Heights' unique formula wraps fat-soluble nutrients (such as vitamins D, E and A) in algae oil, which is rich in omega 3. This makes it easy and effective for your body to absorb the Smart Supplement – even on an empty stomach. Heights has also avoided any nutrient clashes (where one nutrient inhibits the absorption of another) to ensure that each ingredient works as it should. All of this leads to balanced energy, sharper focus, improved mood and sounder sleep, making for a happier brain and healthier body.

2. It's plant-based and sustainable

Heights goes out of its way to ensure that all of the Smart Supplement ingredients are vegan, sustainably sourced, and have the lowest carbon footprint possible. The packaging is fully recyclable, and the company is on track to soon be plastic-free. It's a win for your health and a win for the health of the planet.

3. It's a routine you can keep

Supplements only work if you take them every day. Heights has made braincare a habit that you can stick to. Take two capsules once a day, with or without food – the clever capsule-in-a-capsule format means it's easy on the stomach. The eye-catching clear bottle means your Heights Smart Supplements will always be in sight and in mind, so you'll never forget to take them. What's more – you'll never run out. The subscription-based model means your Smart Supplements will be delivered right to your door every month: choose a monthly plan, three-month plan or 12-month plan.
