Our nutritionists


Our trusted team of nutrition scientists have backgrounds in biomedical science, pharmacology, psychology and nutrition science and offer years of combined academic, research, industry and clinical experience. Responsible for researching and developing our bespoke supplement formulas, they are equally passionate about writing and lecturing on the complex and ever-evolving subject that is nutrition. You can speak to Nina, Sophie & Maxine directly on live chat, keep up with their articles on our nutrition and practitioner blogs,  and attend their webinars if you’re a qualified or studying health professional.
