Nôgel was founded in 2017 after an innovation project in co-operation with Estonian University of Life Sciences, when two Estonian girls – Laura and Birgit – had trouble increasing their body iron levels and not many high-quality and efficient iron supplements were available on the market. This is how the idea of creating an iron food supplement developed in Estonia was born, where in addition to high bioavailability iron bisglycinate only natural ingredients would be used.

It is very important to us that all ingredients are pure and natural, so we decided firmly to use only ingredients harvested without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. It also made sense to pack the supplement that we put so much effort into environmentally friendly packages. Charity is important to us and therefore, for every product sold we donate 5 cents to local children´s charity in Estonia (Lastefond)!

Did you know that …

nettle in dialectic Estonian is called ’nogulane’? This is where the name Nôgel comes from.





The first time I encountered iron subject was when my blood test showed a low ferritin level. Due to so many iron supplements being available, I first decided to find out which iron form was recommended and why. Thanks to an on-going Innovation project about nettle in co-operation with Enterprise Estonia and Estonian University of Life Sciences, the idea to develop a high-quality iron food supplement in co-operation with field experts was born. It all started with one iron supplement and a project about nettle.

My experience with Nôgel

During pregnancy I supplemented with our first Iron 20 mg supplement (the funny jar if somebody remembers increasing daily dose to 4 tablets, 80 mg, as there was no Superiron back then) – hemoglobin and ferritin levels remained good during and after pregnancy. With second pregnancy I used Superiron. My whole family uses D3-drops regularly.


I have a masters degree in economics with specialization in quantitative finance. Since 2018 I have actively been studying nutrition science in the University of Eastern Finland open university. In the same open university I have also studied medicine in the Institute of Biomedicine.


The first time I had to use iron food supplements was in my teens, when I was prescribed strong iron pills. During the whole treatment period, I had a lot stomach problems, at the time I ignored it because I thought that it was a normal side effect. Years later, when I was faced with the same problem again, I did some homework. In 2017, me and Laura had an idea – to develop an iron food supplement with an ingredients list simple. An exciting product development phase and testing began. If you’re faced with the same problem as I was at that time, try Nôgel.

My experience with Nôgel

During pregnancy I used Iron 30 mg – blood test and iron stores were good and I felt great during whole pregnancy. Now I use D3-drops – and for baby of course D3-drops for babies.


I have graduated from Tallinn Health Care College and studied health promotion, which focuses on factors that influence people´s everyday behavior and their influencing.
