Helping people live happier, healthier lives by realizing their genetic potential
Metagenics was founded in 1983 on a brave new scientific concept: how the right nutrition could help people realize their best health possible by influencing what makes them unique—their genes. Back then we called it “genetic potential through nutrition.” It also makes us unique—it’s been our mission and a key differentiator ever since.
Today, this ever-growing and respected field of science is known as nutrigenomics. And it's been practiced for nearly 30 years by forward-thinking providers who utilize our industry-leading products and programs to help people live healthier, happier lives.
Now healthcare organizations worldwide recommend “lifestyle medicine” to improve health with basic nutrigenomic tenets: healthier eating and regular exercise. But we hold the key to making lifestyle medicine programs more effective, as well as more expedient with targeted nutritional support.
Our research-based medical foods, nutraceuticals, and turnkey programs help address each patient’s unique health needs for a higher level of personalized, lifetime wellness care. That’s why so many healthcare providers worldwide trust Metagenics over any other professional brand.
Product Verification from Start to Finish
Metagenics is committed to offering products with ingredients that are not derived from genetically modified organisms (GMO).
Our standards require that all our vendors confirm the non-GMO source of their ingredients. For any ingredient where the source is soy, corn, or other plants that are often known to have been genetically modified, Metagenics demands separate processing and storage of the ingredients they supply us. Unlike many other companies, we require third-party certification confirming non-GMO status for these ingredients. At present we’re able to verify the non-GMO status of 98% of our ingredients, with product labeling that helps identify it.
We refuse to cut corners on ensuring the quality of our products. The higher cost and extra care required by this approach indicate the importance we place on quality, efficacy, and the needs of our healthcare practitioners and patients.
Establishing a higher caliber of science for better quality research and formulation
For nutritional products to be recommended in a healthcare setting, quality and science should be closely linked. Often, however, they’re not. Metagenics stands above the crowd by allocating substantial resources for an in-house scientific staff and technologically advanced facilities necessary to conduct adequate research and evaluation. It’s what enables us to continue to provide innovative formulas of the highest possible quality to help you make a noticeable impact on health.
Our mission and reputation have attracted the talents of phytochemists, biochemists, medical doctors, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and other highly respected researchers and clinicians that have been published by numerous domestic and international peer-reviewed journals. Using the latest genomic and proteomic research technologies at the Jeffrey S. Bland Science Center, these scientific experts have identified plant-based derivatives and nutrients, including selective kinase response modulators (SKRMs), which positively influence health in uniquely effective and predictably safe ways.
And they make sure these compounds deliver on their potential by careful examination at every stage—formulation, ingredient selection, quality assays, manufacture, dissolution, taste, and tolerance. Followed by careful examination in our onsite clinic—the Functional Medicine Research Center®—to refine protocols, measure compliance, and confirm effectiveness before any proprietary nutraceutical or medical food is introduced to market.
This industry-leading investment, which has garnered an impressive list of patented formulas and clinical applications, is crucial for advancing patient care. It also demonstrates our long-term commitment to healthcare providers who trust our products.
