Nutritional supplement usage is commonplace, with millions of people taking one every day. Yet back in 1955, when the Douglas Laboratories® story began, supplements were not part of the mainstream. Company founder Sam Lioon was a nutritional pioneer. He saw an opportunity to help Americans improve their health, and began selling nutritional supplements directly to healthcare professionals.
Over the past 60 years, Douglas Laboratories® has grown into a globally recognized leader in the development and manufacturing of innovative, science-based nutritional supplements, designed to help healthcare practitioners and their patients in their drive to achieve healthy aging AND maintain active lifestyles.
As a pioneer in healthy aging, Douglas Laboratories® manufactures nutritional supplements for long-term health and active lifestyles. We believe healthy aging is much more than living a long life. It’s about unlocking the potential of living healthier longer.
Founded in Pittsburg in 1955, the Douglas Laboratories® brand has been part of the Atrium Innovations Inc. group since 2005, a recognized leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of food supplements, which owns and distributes 14 of the most specialized and valued brands, operating in 35 countries, with more than 1,400 employees and 7 factories around the world.
At Douglas Laboratories®, we use research-based ingredients to create safe, effective nutritional products for our doctors and health-conscious consumers. That’s why we study ingredients and products in rigorous clinical trials with top academic partners. From studying vitamin D to unraveling the cognitive and metabolic benefits of polyphenols in aging adults, Douglas Laboratories® is heavily invested in understanding the relationship between nutrition and healthy aging.
Douglas Laboratories focuses on developing strong relationships with key opinion leaders in integrative and complementary medicine. Our clinical advisors collaborate closely with our team and provide clinical expertise and input on formulation concepts. This enables us to create products that are not only backed by science, but are also practical and clinically relevant. Representing a wide variety of healthcare specialties, our clinical advisors add value to Douglas Laboratories’ product development and education initiatives.
All of us at Douglas Laboratories® believe in promoting health and well-being not only by manufacturing healthy aging supplements, but also by coming together to help our community.
A healthy community is one of the fundamental values of the Douglas Laboratories brand. It’s a value we all share and one that defines us.
This common passion is why we created our Growing Together Program. With the creativity of our Growing Together committee, the entire Douglas Laboratories team works together to positively impact the health of those in need—both locally and globally.
