Health Benefit Solutions

At DSM our purpose is to create brighter lives for all. From a nutritional standpoint that starts with people - and meeting their diverse needs, which is why we created a family of Health Benefit Solutions that does precisely that. Our Targeted Health Solutions address heart health, gut health, eye health, brain health, immunity and mobility; Life's Essentials Solutions focus on the specific health needs of men, women and children at all stages of life and our Lifestyle Solutions address weight management, healthy skin, hair and nails and sports nutrition.

Nourishing the needy

About one third of the world’s population suffers from ‘hidden hunger’, a deficiency in essential vitamins and minerals which in turn causes a range of physical, social and economic problems. At DSM we’re helping to fight against hidden hunger through a range of Nutrition Improvement activities. The result: high-quality, affordable and innovative nutritional solutions for people in the developing world - including fortified staples foods, micronutrient powders, micronutrient supplements and more, based on decades of experience.
