Bela Balogh, PhD
Founder and CEO
Dr. Bela Balogh, a PhD Biochemist, founded Scientific Consulting Service in 1968 to offer scientific and technical nutritional advice to health professionals in the United States and abroad. During his first year of consulting, Dr. Balogh saw an immediate need for a line of scientifically formulated vitamin and mineral supplements. With this goal in mind, he established the Scientific Consulting Service Manufacturing Plant and began serving health professionals throughout the West Coast. His initial accomplishments include the development of a kelp-based, hypoallergenic selenium supplement, SeaSEL™. Dr. Balogh later revolutionized the instant absorption of nutritional supplements with his exclusive "Target Release™" concept and in 1985, introduced an innovative nutritional program for surgical patients.
Dr. Bela Balogh is a graduate of the University of Budapest, Hungary and the University of Vienna, Austria, where he received his doctorate in biochemistry. Prior to starting Intensive Nutrition Inc, he served as Head Research Biochemist for NASA and as an Adjunct Professor of Analytical Chemistry at University of California, Berkeley.
