Driven by the growing necessity for holistic wellness, Pure Vitality set out on a journey to discover effective natural solutions that can transform people’s lives around the world.  Here, remotely secluded in the pristine islands of New Zealand, nature, science and traditional wisdom fuse into an energizing and rejuvenating essence with all the spark and life that is found in the world of Pure Vitality.

OVERVIEW

Nestled in the foothills of the snow capped Southern Alps, Pure Vitality provides a special and unique range of deer products, deer antler velvet, manuka honey, health supplements and skincare products from our own property.  We farm one of the largest herds of red deer in New Zealand; we make the hives, harvest the honey from our own bee hives and have built our own fully registered manufacturing, processing and packing facility on our own farm.  Pure Vitality’s purity and quality guarantee begins with balancing the soil, growing pure and healthy pasture and breeding and nourishing the finest animals on our own farm.  This enables us to control quality right from the soil to the shelf.  We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced business partners who want to take New Zealand’s Health to the world.

Good quality deer velvet is expensive to grow but we only use premium quality, full beam, deer velvet in our health supplements to ensure our customers get the best results. If deer velvet is cheap, it’s not the real deal!   Named the ‘Emperors Tonic’ for its powerful health giving properties, Deer Velvet has been highly regarded in traditional oriental medicine for 2000 years. More recently, scientific research in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Korea confirms velvet’s benefits for supporting joint health and mobility, healing and recovery, strength and endurance, healthy immune system, fertility and libido, and vitality and wellbeing.

CONTRACT MANUFACTURING

While we produce our own brands of deer antler velvet, health supplements, honey products, and natural skincare we also offer contract manufacturing services.  Our manufacturing facility, NZPURE1 is registered and audited by the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Premium deer velvet, deer products, manuka honey, honey products, selenomethionine, vitamins, minerals, herbs and botanicals and natural skincare.
