The American Heart Association, the National Institutes of Health, and other leading organizations now recommend TLC as the first line of defense in the prevention and management of chronic conditions including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and others.
Science and Research
Metagenics’ research and development team—one of the largest in the natural health industry—is continually discovering new and innovative ways to apply nutrition to improve health. Our substantial investments in research and development are uncommon within the natural products industry.
Metagenics was founded in 1983 with the visionary mission of helping patients achieve their "genetic potential through nutrition." Today this science is called nutrigenomics—the search for highly active substances from food and other natural sources that can serve as potent dietary signaling molecules to positively affect genetic expression.
For over twenty years, Metagenics' scientific discoveries and product innovations have raised the bar for quality and effectiveness within the natural health industry. We are one of the few companies in the industry to receive Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certifications from the Natural Products Association, NSF International, and the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia.
