Intensive Nutrition Inc. was founded in 1968 as Scientific Consulting Service, by Dr. Bela Balogh (PhD, Biochemist), who initially consulted oncologists and other health professionals on nutrition, and helped develop nutritional programs for patients. His consulting led to full-scale product development, and soon thereafter, the development of the Intensive Nutrition line.
Intensive Nutrition Inc. continues this tradition of customer education, and focuses on the manufacture of scientifically backed, vigorously researched dietary supplements. It is particularly important to manufacture products that work with the body’s biochemical processes and as a consequence of a commitment to this goal, Intensive Nutrition supplements exhibit the highest bioavailability.
Intensive Nutrition products are manufactured according to the standards set forth by the U.S. Pharmacopeia. The majority of the raw materials are certified kosher and raw material testing is conducted to ensure product quality and efficacy.
Intensive Nutrition uses only the highest quality raw materials from reputable raw material vendors. Throughout the 40 years in the industry, the company has established many long-term relationships with top quality raw material suppliers. The manner in which raw materials are combined significantly impacts a products’ efficacy and bioavailability. A term used in pharmacology, bioavailability essentially defines the extent to which a compound reaches systemic circulation and is available to the body at the point of absorption.
For dietary supplements, Intensive Nutrition uses the term bioavailability to define products manufactured for maximum absorption by the body. Intravenous delivery offers 100% bioavailability, however, as dietary supplements cannot be delivered in this manner without being classified as drugs, Intensive Nutrition strives to come as close as possible to maximum bioavailability by defining method of delivery and product composition.
