We were the first widely distributed magazine in the world to promote a healthy plant-based, active lifestyle. We continue to lead the way in providing cutting edge information on nutrition and exercise, in a way that is fun and remarkably easy for all.
We offer scientific information on a range of topics from raising healthy kids, to longevity, to avoiding disease, to improving athletic performance. We are proud to have much higher standards than other magazines for scientific claims. Our articles are known to require citations worthy of top academic journals.
We offer inspirational stories of healthy living for all, from athletes of all ages and backgrounds from all over the world who are breaking records and accomplishing great things to folks overcoming disease and losing weight, transforming their lives. The message is simple. If they can do it, you can do it too! And, we want to help!
We offer information on the most eco-friendly, hypo-allergenic, healthy gear and clothing for all sorts of athletic activities.We regularly give awards for the best products. Our recommendations are trustworthy and unbiased as we, strictly, do not accept payment for our words of praise.
We offer the healthiest, plant-based recipes that are always delicious as well as optimally nutritious. Great chefs know that flavor needs very little to no sugar, little to no salt, little to no oil, and can be gluten-free and can be raw. Nature provides all we need to enjoy life in a healthy way! We love showing you how!
We offer articles written by experts that you can trust: top scientists, doctors, and athletes. Many of our columnists are best-selling authors and popular lecturers with large followings.
We offer a community for readers who already lead or are looking to lead a healthy and fit plant-based lifestyle, through not only the magazine pages, but our interactive website and events.
We realize that the health-seeking community that we serve is diverse, and growing rapidly. Unlike most other magazines, we try to make sure that such diversity is represented in each issue.

More than just CPM. Our audience is large, and constantly expanding. But the real value of advertising with VHF transcends the simple CPM (cost per thousand) promoted by a lot of publications. The most frequent comment we get from our readers is that VHF is the ONLY magazine they read cover-to-cover. It’s the ONLY magazine they save and re-read. Why? If you are interested in health and/or fitness and you are veg-inclined, our publication is the ONLY source for your community in the world. We are also well-respected for providing content that is substantive and reliable. So if you have a product for folks with vegan health and/or fitness interests, we are your best (only) means of reaching them as a specific group.
Our readers are as diverse as the planet. They range in age from their early 20s to their 60s and are about 65% female to 35% male. Some have kids, and some don’t. Some are serious athletes, and some just enjoy an active lifestyle. They invest in the pursuit of health and the benefits that health provides. Our readers tend to be well-educated and shop at health food markets. They make their healthy diet and lifestyle a priority.

...Shockingly affordable, simple & effective.
Get inside our magazine:
An Ad in our pages reaches far. Our readers regularly tell us that our magazine is the only magazine that they read cover-to-cover and keep accessible in their home for years. We provide subscriptions to hundreds of libraries and doctor’s offices where we reach countless readers. On top of that, we have an incredibly loyal and enthusiastic following of about 15k families who are long-term subscribers and a few thousand others who come and go. If this sort of focused, targeted access to the folks who are the most serious about vegan health and fitness appeals to you, ads inside the magazine are a must.
For as little as $250, you can reserve an ad space that will reach tens of thousands of health & fitness minded people with an interest or devotion to a vegan lifestyle. A full page ad, arguably the most effective and popular ad space in any magazine, costs as little as $1000 - a rate you won't find any place else. Campaigns on social media platforms can't reach a target audience as large and as unique as VHF's, and an Instagram post, Facebook shout-out, or tweet simply can't convey as much information or capture reader attention like a full color full page ad can. You can purchase an ad space and upload your artwork here on the website. Simple. No BS, no haggling.

NEW! Exciting opportunities for advertising in our videos, podcasts, and newsletters
In 2019 we will be ramping up production on videos and podcasts. This will be a wonderful opportunity for vegan, eco-friendly, sustainable, and health and fitness-minded companies to spread the word about their products and services to audiences of these audio and visual platforms. We will also be sending out monthly newsletters to our massive subscriber base, informing them of upcoming events, magazine releases, and podcast and video launches, and there will be advertising possibilities within these newsletters as well.
These special advertising possibilities will not be directly for sale and will always be subject to editorial approval, as we will only personally recommend products and services that we are truly passionate about ourselves. We are currently accepting proposals for these special opportunities. If you have a proposal in mind for us, please submit to [email protected]
