Intensive Nutrition Inc. was founded in 1968 as Scientific Consulting Service, by Dr. Bela Balogh (PhD, Biochemist). Through SCS, Dr. Balogh consulted oncologists and other health professionals on nutrition and helped develop nutritional programs for oncologists and their cancer patients. Dr. Balogh's consulting service organically evolved into the development of a complete nutritional product line as well as new business, Intensive Nutrition Incorporated (INI).
Intensive Nutrition Incorporated continues the SCS tradition of customer education, and, as its name indicates, focuses on the manufacture of scientifically backed, vigorously researched dietary supplements that are unique in their composition and efficacy. It is particularly important to manufacture products that work with the body's biochemical processes and as a consequence of our commitment to this goal, Intensive Nutrition supplements exhibit the highest bioavailability.
Our Company's Hallmarks: Product Quality, Product Efficacy, Customer Education and Superior Customer Service
INI products are manufactured in-house at our San Leandro, California facility which allows us exceptional access to all levels of the manufacturing process at every point in the manufacturing process. INI products are manufactured according to the standards set forth by the U.S. Pharmacopeia. In accordance with FDA regulation and US law (DSHEA), we adhere to GMP protocol in the manufacture of our products. This includes extensive testing before, during and after manufacturing processes, proper identification and confirmation of all raw materials and redundancy systems to ensure safety. As a consequence we can ensure the safety and purity of our dietary supplements.
Our formulations reflect unparalleled knowledge of chemistry, biochemistry and how the body properly assimilates dietary supplements. If we cannot demonstrate through science the real potential benefit of a dietary supplement, then that formula, ingredient, etc., will not bear the Intensive Nutrition name. The same goes for all our raw materials and excipients (See our article on the safety of Magnesium Stearate). In addition, the majority of our raw materials are certified KOSHER.
Knowledge is POWER. Our product literature is written for ease of understanding by both laypersons and health professionals. We make sure that all of our customers are well-informed about our products and their uses. We occasionally release statements on issues that involve the dietary supplement industry whether it concerns bad science (Magnesium Stearate for example) or regulatory action. Our goal at Intensive Nutrition Inc. to help you live a healthier, happier life. PLEASE DO ASK US QUESTIONS! We are here to help!
All of our Customer Service representatives are well-educated about our product line and we always have a "real" person available for someone to talk to. Our CIO, Olivia Melaugh, is available to customers as "Ask Olivia" where she answers all product questions by email or phone. She is also available to consult on dietary regimens (a complimentary service).
