We believe the best reflection of the plant-based movement is a vibrant, thriving vegan, and we envision a community of plant-based individuals who glow from the inside out. Based in the mountains of Colorado, Alpine Organics designed Complement with our loved ones — and our planet — in mind. We're super nerdy about nutrients, so we chose only the highest quality sourced ingredients to be used in our product.
Our mission is to provide every plant-based person with the knowledge about, and access to, the essential nutrients required to thrive.
Luckily, a diverse diet of whole plants provides almost every vitamin and mineral required. But there are a few exceptions...
Life relies on soil, but the life in our soil isn't what it used to be. Soil bacteria produce Vitamin B12 — which is essential for humans in order to protect neural health and reduce inflammation. Modern agriculture and our hyper-sanitized society make it difficult to get enough naturally-sourced B12.
We love nature and spending time outdoors. We also wear clothing, and most of us work inside during daylight hours, and too much sun without protection can cause skin damage. These factors reduce our natural ability to get enough sun exposure. As a result, many of us — regardless of dietary pattern — might be deficient in Vitamin D, which may increase the risk of various chronic diseases, from osteoporosis to heart disease, some cancers, and even multiple sclerosis.
We've all heard of the importance of Omega-3s, but vegan food sources like flax and chia seeds don't provide two essential types. Seeds provide the "ALA" kind, but vegans may not adequately intake the long chain forms — namely DHA and EPA — which are critical for cardiovascular and brain health. Naturally found in marine sources like seaweed and algae, optimal amounts of EPA and DHA are hard to get in a normal diet unless you're packing in the sea plants.
Complement is backed by luminaries of the plant-based movement.
"Attaining adequate sources of B12, D3, and DHA/EPA is critical to ensuring your plant-based diet is protecting your health for the long run. I'm excited that Complement finally provides a way to get all three of these essential nutrients that's as easy as a few sprays on your favorite vegan dish!"
"Finally — a simple, clean, pleasant way to complement a whole foods, plant-powered diet and get the nutrients you need to thrive! I take Complement every day, and so do my twin sons. My kids don’t like swallowing pills, and the truth is, neither do I. But because it’s a spray, we all enjoy Complement. It’s simple, clean, and effective. No GMOS, and no junk. Just critical nutrients, all combined perfectly, in one place."
"As a practicing plant-based dietitian and a busy vegan mom, I love that Complement is an all-in-one solution that meets our family's needs. I feel confident that it is safe, and I love that it is designed by vegans, for vegans, with everything we need and nothing we don't. Plus, the spray makes it so easy to fortify my family's food!"
