How We Work Together
Our experts meet monthly to ensure our supplements continue to meet the highest quality standards. Here’s a little taste of what else they do.
Research & development
Whether it’s scrutinizing a new nutritional product or alpha testing their own, our experts’ appetite for innovation knows no limit.
We test every one of our ingredients 7 times. It’s a lot. But with the help of our Science Advisory Board, we never miss a beat.
Unlike most supplement brands, we invest in university-led clinical trials to ensure our blends are safe and effective.
