“I'm extremely happy to have joined Team Solgar! To now work so closely with the company whose vitamins and supplements I have been taking for years, is truly an honour. Solgar takes great pride in using the finest, natural raw ingredients, which is one of the reasons why I’ve used their products for so many years. Nutrition has always been huge part of my life, as the lifts in the gym get heavier and the runs on the track get faster, it’s great to know that my body is being well looked-after”
