Our Story

Vitmedics was founded by myself Michael Wakeman, a pharmacist with a Masters in Nutritional Medicine, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Clinical Oncology and a lifetime within the health and nutrition sector.

As previous head of a company that researched natural products and developed them to licensed medicines alongside leading figures such as Nobel Laureate in Medicine, Sir James Black, I’ve always sought to deliver real science in nutrition as a fundamental.

With so many fad products and supplements on the market with limited supporting evidence I have developed a platform which enables anyone to be confident in their quest for nutritional needs. We don’t just claim to have supporting research but we actually provide it for you alongside each and every nutritional recommendation Vitmedics makes.

Why Vitmedics?

We all live in a world where convention dictates “you can get everything you need from a healthy diet” that ill-defined, and mythical beast that fails to take into account that not everyone is the same. However, my research has always concentrated on real life situations where this mantra fails to deliver.

Whether that be in situations such as weight loss surgery, where people unequivocally need supplementation for the rest of their lives, or conditions where the body simply fails to use nutrients effectively, or indeed the food we eat may not contain what we’ve been led to believe it does, these have always been issues that have fascinated me.

In fact, the last topic led to my research on the levels of healthy micronutrients in apples to be selected by The Royal Pharmaceutical Society to promote their scientific conference.

Medicated Malnourishment

Vitmedics is the outcome of 5 dedicated years of research and the publication of Medicated Malnourishment by our founder Mike Wakeman.

Our database includes over 3000 oral licensed medications available in the UK-both prescription and over-the-counter, by generic and brand name. Vitmedics has a unique and industry leading tool which can quantitatively determine the single or cumulative impacts that medications may have on nutritional status.

You might not have thought about the latter, but in the UK alone, there are over 1.1 Billion prescriptions issued each year, of which 390 million are for the top 20 medications of which 84% of these impacts directly in some way on nutrient status.
