Micronutrition and science - The key to a healthier life
Our main business is helping people to get better. Everyone has the genetic potential to live a healthier life. Whether we fully realize our health potential depends on various factors, such as lifestyle, nutrition and environment. It is the mission of Metagenics to providing effective micronutrition for healthcare professionals to help people live healthier, happier lives.
Micronutrition should not be confused with a standard food supplement. Micronutrition provides specific micronutrients, such as vitamins and minerals but also flavonoids, fatty acids and antioxidants. The specific micronutrients are used alongside macronutrients (fat, carbohydrate, protein) in a highly targeted way. This allows for efficient correction of nutritional deficiencies or imbalances based on the individual, with due consideration for maximum tolerance.
