Building a Nutrilite Global, Scientific Community

By bringing together some of the world's leading experts, the Nutrilite Health Institute has built a global scientific community – adding unprecedented focus and impact to a wide range of studies, from heart health and weight management issues, to improving our lives as we age.

The Nutrilite Health Institute draws on the expertise of over 100 internal scientists as well as outside experts for research, clinical testing, and education. Their discoveries, demonstrated in hundreds of international science and nutrition journals and presentations, have greatly expanded global understanding of nutrition science.

The Nutrilite Health Institute Publications List spans more than five decades of ground-breaking research in the areas of nutrition science, analytical chemistry, and agricultural methodology.
