Victus, Sander Aarts and the University of Wageningen are teaming up under the name victus.defence.
Our mission: help military personnel and high-performing civilians improving their cognitive and physical performance and alleviate or prevent the consequences of long-term strain and overload. Together with the University of Wageningen we will explore how food and nutrition can help prevent the mentioned negative effects of prolonged burdening.
We will investigate if and how these insights can be offered in the form of a nutritional supplement to both military personnel and civilians who are confronted with an above-average workload.
In the coming months, we will share the insights and conclusions with anyone who’s interested. If you would like to receive these updates, we invite you to subscribe to the list below.
We are Victus.
We’re here for the modern-day warriors. For the ones who keep showing up. For those who take dedication to another level and perform like no other. We see you.
And although we understand it takes more than the right nutrition to become a warrior, we think it’s a pretty great start.
So that’s where we come in. By keeping your supplements simple and simply the best, backed by modern science.
Breaking the status quo one day at a time, so you can do the very same. Whoever you are, whatever you do. We’re on your team.
Let’s nourish your inner warrior.
