Simple because we know you're busy and we know the vitamins and supplements space can be overwhelming. There are so many choices out there; it's impossible to know where to begin. We want to make vitamins and supplements simple again. We only make the products you really need - no more, no less.
Proactive because, in our society, we tend to treat our bodies once something has gone wrong, rather than taking care of it along the way. Our goal at Mt. Angel Vitamins is to minimize those times when you have to fix your body because something has happened and instead maintain wellness proactively through exercise, healthy eating, and self-care.
Wellness because we believe that a person's wellness is so much more than just physical. It is also emotional, social, financial, and spiritual. Our vitamins and supplements support your physical and mental health, but we want to support you in the other areas of your wellness journey, too.
We're here to support you and make it easier for you to live a healthier, simpler life.
