When we depend on nutritional supplements to help fuel and protect our bodies, we need to know where our nutrients are coming from. Nutrilite takes pride in bringing together the best of science and the best of nature to produce trusted, high-quality dietary supplements.
But just what role does science play?
Science at every step
We go after the best, natural ingredients. To do that, we need to understand the science behind that nature.
—Dr. Sam Rehnborg, President of Nutrilite Health Institute
From the way we plant seeds, to the way we harvest and process our crops, Nutrilite employs advanced scientific methods every step of the way. So you can enjoy the healthful benefits once our supplements reach your door.
Our tractors are guided by GPS technology. They know where to drive to minimize the need for hand-weeding, and they know exactly how deep to plant seeds, to make sure they’re safe from predators (including birds).
Plants are dehydrated and processed within hours of harvest, using special methods and state-of-the-art equipment.
A team of more than 150 Nutrilite scientists is constantly innovating. We are always searching for new concentrates and better formulations. That research has led to more than 190 granted and pending patents worldwide.
We use “soft” blending methods to ensure the potency of our finished product. This means we thoroughly blend ingredients without damaging the plant concentrates or exposing them to high heat, and our tablet compress uses 1-8 tons of pressure to make up to 7,000 tablets per minute.
Quality-assurance experts ensure each supplement meets precise specifications for safety, purity and identity. They conduct more than 500,000 checks every year — that’s one quality check per minute, every day!
As a result of our thorough process, you can rest assured that your Nutrilite supplements contain quality ingredients with potent phytonutrients to help you stay healthier.
