Collection: METAGENICS

The Metagenics story began in 1983 when concerned industry advocate, Jeff Katke, tested various major US nutritional suppliers' products and found that they were using low-grade ingredients and reactive excipients (in order to increase their profit margins without any concern for patients' health). Jeff decided to start his own ethical health science company, Metagenics Inc, which would produce only high-quality nutritional products to be administered by properly trained Healthcare Professionals.

Under the banner of Metagenics, Leon Brosnan, a retired Pharmacist, and his son Michael formed Health World Pty Ltd in Australia in 1985. Both had a dream of building a company that would provide high-quality nutritional supplements to Healthcare Professionals and consumers.

Renamed Metagenics in 2017, Metagenics has grown to become a market leader and one of the most trusted suppliers of Natural Medicines in Australia and New Zealand. Much of Metagenics's success is due to its strict adherence to its mission of helping people live happier, healthier lives.

Since the company's formation over 35 years ago, Metagenics's quality processes have continued to set new standards in safety and efficacy and will continue to do so into the future. Metagenics - Australia's and New Zealand's Leading Natural Health Science Company, helping people live happier, healthier lives.

The Metagenics Quality Process

We know that the clinical benefit delivered by any natural medicine begins with the quality and strength of its raw materials.

At Metagenics, they formulate evidence-based supplements that they test themselves, from product development through the manufacturing process, and continue to monitor even after the finished product has been released. This ensures the efficacy of their products matches their practitioner’s expectations. Metagenics’ unparalleled commitment to quality means we rigorously vet their raw material suppliers and select only high-quality ingredients supported by:

• Scientific research which proves clinical efficacy;
• Thorough assessment for adulterants or substitutions;
