The title has a new focus on sustainability running through all sections, which is reflected in the new slogan “Bewusst leben, nachhaltig geniessen” (live consciously, enjoy sustainably). VITAL continues to cover current issues across medicine and health, beauty, healthy eating, psychology and travel.
