We take new ingredients from idea to proof-of-principle to clinical validation, substantiating that our ingredients work, are safe and regulatory compliant. All of our ingredients are protected by numerous patents. Once ingredients are ready form commercialization, they will be made available through distribution partners, so we can focus on what we do best and love to do: innovation.

We are addressing unmet consumer needs by developing cutting edge new ingredients for muscle, brain and gut health, optimizing human health and performance.
