Science & Innovation: Atrium Innovations
Do men respond differently to omega-3 fatty acid supplements than women do? How do the polyphenols found in berries impact gut health? Can protein-digesting enzymes quell osteoarthritis pain as well as drugs do? What distinct impacts do DHA vs. EPA have on cardio-metabolic health?
These are just a few of the scientific questions Atrium Innovations has set out to answer in recent years, via an aggressive, multi-million-dollar research initiative that has yielded 26 papers in peer-reviewed journals, launched dozens more studies, and helped support a first-of-its kind functional medicine center at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic. At a time when consumer skepticism about supplements is high, and good science is more critical than ever, industry leaders point to the Quebec-based parent company of respected brands Garden of Life, Douglas Labs, and Pure Encapsulations as proof that collaborative long-term research can pay off–in more ways than one.
