Toolbox | Supplements

In the 24 years that I’ve been consulting in the health and wellness industry, I’ve been exposed to many supplement companies.  None of whom have won me over, at least not until I recently. I’ve chosen to partner with Metagenics, a nutraceutical (natural pharmaceutical grade) company who’s been committed to providing scientifically proven results since 1983.  Metagenics, whose products are available exclusively to health care providers, is also committed to non-GMO, organic, allergen and gluten-free and harvesting ingredients in a way that doesn't threaten our natural environment.  You can learn more about Metagenics in their own words below or by visiting

KitchenStud is currently developing our online partnership with Metagenics, so please stop back soon.  Until then, please visit to learn more about their products, then contact us directly to place an order either by phone 415.450.7646 or email

WHAT’S NEW?  I’m excited to announce that I’ve also become certified as a First Line Therapy Lifestyle Educator with Metagenics!  What does this mean to you?  You now not only have access to these highly sought after nutraceuticals and medical foods, but you can also have your body measured by Bioimpedence Analysis – the medical industries preferred method of measuring your body composition, which, in conjunction with lab work, report the status of your health beyond what the scale and traditional BMI testing can offer.


Whether you're a patient or a health care provider, be your best with Metagenics.

Today, chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have become so common that most people don't remember what it's like to be in excellent health. And if they're not feeling their best, they can't be their best. In truth, many chronic health conditions are preventable. They're the result of years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and prolonged exposure to stress. And leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle—by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life—many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed.  The solution seems so simple, and yet, the incidence of chronic illness is continuing to rise at an alarming rate. At Metagenics, we're aiming to change all that.

Doctors and patients have thousands of nutritional supplements to choose from—with a wide variation in quality and price. We focus on improving people's health—not just selling pills.  Our top priority is to make products that work. Because no matter how much you pay for a product, it's too expensive if it doesn't work. It's rare for a professional nutritional product company to devote the scientific staff, labs, equipment, time, resources, and strict procedures necessary to achieve true quality status.  We can't imagine it any other way—people's health may depend on it.

Addressing the Root Cause of Illness through Science-Based Nutrition

Back in 1983, we had a big idea: the right nutrition could help people realize their best health possible by positively influencing what makes them unique—their genes. We called it realizing "genetic potential" for good health. Today, it's known as the science of nutrigenomics—the study of food as one of the most important environmental modifiers of gene expression in determining health and disease patterns. Through our substantial and ongoing commitment to nutrigenomic research, we've been able to identify natural compounds with powerful therapeutic applications, to be used in our science-based TLC programs, medical foods, and nutraceuticals.

Leading the Way to Safe and Effective Chronic Illness Solutions

We're living in an extraordinary time in health care. The incidence and cost of lifestyle-related chronic health conditions has risen to levels unimagined just a few decades ago—it's estimated that more than half of American adults suffer from one or more chronic illnesses. At the same time, developments in genetic, cellular, and nutritional research have yielded exciting new insights into the environmental influences and biological mechanisms that affect an individual's genetic predisposition to chronic illness. The convergence of these factors—as well as an ever-growing demand for safe, effective, and natural options for managing chronic illness—has created an unprecedented opportunity for forward-thinking companies like ours.

For more than 25 years, we’ve been dedicated to developing innovative, science-based, natural approaches to improve health. Today, we’re well positioned to meet society’s current—and emerging—most pressing health care needs, through:

  • FirstLine Therapy®—our turnkey, clinically tested therapeutic lifestyle program that can be implemented in any clinical practice
  • One of the largest and most diverse research and development teams in the natural products industry
  • Leading-edge nutritional genomics and clinical research facilities
  • State-of-the-art biotechnology instrumentation

At Metagenics, we take pride in our extensive research efforts. In addition to conducting the most innovative laboratory research in our niche, our clinicians carefully and thoroughly document the effectiveness of our nutraceuticals, medical foods, and therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) programs work in real patients to improve health and reverse chronic illness. The results of their work are routinely published in peer-reviewed journals.  No other company in our segment can offer this kind of supporting evidence of effective use in a clinical setting.
