All Stix products represent the first step in a massive reduction in plastic use within the drinks industry.
Compared to traditional Vitamin and Squash drinks which come in large plastic bottles, Stix Sachets use up to 99% less plastic per drink.
By using small sachets and a reusable water bottle, together we can all continue to enjoy delicious drinks and use less plastic.
As a company we are also aiming to make our sachets fully recyclable ASAP! This is where you can help with each purchase of Stix we can grow as a business this will allow us to fund research into recyclable sachets. (Something that the big companies are failing to do ☹️).
Stix have No Artificial Colours or Flavours and No Added Sugar in their Drinks.

No. Stix are made with No Added Sugar, which makes Vit Stix a fantastic option as a healthy vitamin drink for both adults and children.
No. Stix Drinks care about children's health and wellbeing so we don’t like Aspartame and we never will. It will never be in any of our products.
We tried many sweeteners including ‘natural’ sweetener such as Stevia. We chose to use Sucralose to sweeten our Drinks because we didn't want a drink with lots of added sugar and we don't like Aspartame or other harmful sweeteners.
During testing our customers preferred the taste of Sucralose and it is the closest compound to Sucrose (sugar) without adding lots of sugar.
No. We don’t like Artificial Colours or Flavours and so we will never include them in any of our Drinks. We like thinks that are natural and promote a healthy and happy life!
We wanted to choose a variety of vitamins to support an overall healthy life. Research shows that around 42% of us are vitamin D deficient and many of us are not getting enough vitamin B12. So we had to include these plus vitamins to give your immune system a boost.
B vitamins provide natural energy both physically and cognitively and boost immunity.
C vitamins help immune system function - to fight off that cold more quickly.
D vitamins help support healthy bones and teeth immune function - the NHS recommend everyone take a vitamin D supplement between October and March.
Zinc helps maintain healthy hair and skin plus it is a natural inflammatory which helps with joint and muscle pain and supports the immune system.
We think Vit Stix are much better. Here’s 5 of many reasons why:
- SAVE TIME – Vit Stix mix instantly with water so take less than 10 seconds to make. Effervescent tablets take around 120 seconds to dissolve fully and stop fizzing! You do the maths.
- VITAMIN D – Most Effervescent tablets don’t contain Vitamin D. This is crazy because government guidelines recommend Vitamin D supplements for all. Two Vit Stix a day give 100% of your Vitamin D.
- NICER TASTE – Our customers (and our team) tell us that Vit Stix taste like a refreshing squash but with vitamins. Which is a lot nicer than effervescent tablets because they’re less heavy on the palette and the flavour is delicious.
- SINGLE PORTION – Can you keep a effervescent tablet in your pocket or gym bag or work bag? Nope! You can with Vit Stix that way you have a vitamin drink anywhere you go (you just need your reusable bottle).
- EASY TO USE – Vit Stix simply tear and pour into a bottle of water and mix instantly with water. No waiting to dissolve, no hassle and no nasty little bits!
Squash Stix - are vegetarian, vegan and gluten free!
Vit Stix - Vegetarian and gluten free yes ✅
Vegan – We say No, but some Vegans say Yes. Confused? We were too. As a vegan, you may be aware that getting Vitamin D through diet or supplements can be quite tough. Most vegan friendly products contain Vitamin D2 and not Vitamin D3. Studies have shown that D3 is around 300% more effective than D2. That's why Vit Stix contain Vitamin D3 but this comes from Grease found on Sheep's Wool and no animals are harmed in the process. The D3 is taken from the Lanolin once the sheep have been shorn by a professional.
Each sachet has a shelf life of a year from production so don't worry you have plenty of time to enjoy your drinks. Just check the bottom of your box.
Also, Vit Stix are formulated so that at any point throughout the shelf life the vitamin levels in the bottle will be exactly the same as stated on the back of each box.
