NUTRILITE—IMPROVING ON NATURE…SCIENTIFICALLY

NUTRILITE® supplements have always been the product of nature's bounty scientifically analyzed and extracted through a meticulously controlled process to develop safe supplements that optimize health.

Years ago, our founder Carl Rehnborg pioneered sophisticated techniques to analyze the nutritional value of specific plants. Today, Nutrilite scientists around the world use the latest methods and technology to improve ways of extracting the maximum goodness from our crops and evaluate new ingredients for our products. Our scientists research new formulations and innovative processing methods, explore new and improved products and ingredients, and use high-performance testing and analytical equipment to maximize plant concentrates for optimal nutrient content.

NUTRIGENOMICS AND BEYOND

Nutrilite is at the forefront of a new scientific discipline: Nutrigenomics – the science of how our genes interact with nutrients. Nutrilite has partnered with more than twenty global institutions recognized within the scientific and nutrition community, and has presented at conferences and published in scientific journals around the world.

HOW NUTRILITE PRODUCTS ARE FORMULATED

Every NUTRILITE® product is the direct result of extensive field testing and laboratory analysis, conducted by scientists, microbiologists, chemists, pharmacists, nutritionists and other technicians. Unlike most companies in nutritional supplement industry, Nutrilite Health Institute has made a significant investment in scientific expertise and equipment.

Comprehensive analytical services include:

  • Bioassays—tests to identify beneficial ingredients and compounds for NUTRILITE products.
  • Microbiology to set specifications and verify ingredients to ensure product safety.
  • Analytical chemistry to identify sources of ingredients, and develop processes for creating safe, consistent and effective products.
