Health begins in the gut: For thousands of years, the intestine has been considered the centre of health. It breaks down our food, houses a large part of our immune system, and influences our mood and well-being via the gut-brain axis. Externally, the skin reflects the health of the intestine; inflammation and imbalanced flora in the gut can result in problems like eczema, acne, and dull skin.
Ingestible beauty: You are what you eat
Today’s beauty revolution is about more than creams and makeup - it starts with proper nutrition. Specific vitamins and minerals provide radiance and elasticity, but an unhealthy gut can become an obstacle when it doesn’t fully absorb these vital nutrients.
Beauty supplements: Effective power from nature
It's no secret that we can’t always give our body everything it needs through our diet alone. That’s why many of us have resorted to taking supplemental vitamins and minerals to fill in the gaps. The problem is that many supplements are filled with synthetic additives and chemicals. her1 offers an alternative - supplements made from 100% natural ingredients.

her1 Founder, Chanyu Xu
My parents came to Germany from China in the mid-1980s. They studied at first and later started their own business. This gave my brother and me everything we needed - not only education, but also the freedom to pursue our passions and shape our lives independently.
I couldn’t take this opportunity for granted. That’s why I founded her1, with the vision of supporting women of all ages and phases in life.
I have been passionate about food since I was a child and I’m convinced that good, healthy food makes our lives longer and better.
her1 is the third start-up I have founded in the food tech sector. Creating something new always demands a lot of time and energy. I’ve learned from these experiences how much stress can affect eating habits and digestion. The connection between stress and the gut can explain why digestive problems are one of the most common health issues of our time, with a majority of cases ailing women.
With her1's products I would like to help women tackle health problems holistically from the inside out. The latest research confirms what doctors have known for centuries: A healthy body starts with a healthy gut.
The purity and sustainability of our products is particularly important to me. The nutrition market is full of synthetic products that, in my opinion, have nothing to do with preventive health care.
At her1, we rely exclusively on natural ingredients that are free of harmful substances. Wherever possible, we obtain our raw materials from European or certified organic sources and have our products bottled in Germany. Likewise, we pay attention to sustainability in our product and shipping packaging and try to avoid unnecessary (plastic) waste.

For many, topics like: Intestinal health, digestion, bowel movements are still a big taboo. My team and I want to change this: Feel free to share your personal story with our community and tag us @her1.official so that other women can learn from your experience.
