It’s one of those moments…

I’ve been grappling with this and you need to know about it as well.

A while ago I wrote about some of the supplement companies that were bought by Nestle.
But there are more supplement companies you need to know about.

You see, there are 14 mega-corporations that are buying more and more supplement companies.

Some corporations will even own competing supplement companies.

You’ll be familiar with some of these.

These mega-corporations include: Bayer, WhiteWave, kikkoman, HGGC, Pfizer, Clorox, P&G, Nestle, Rekitt Benckiser, Alticor, KKR, Olsuka, SPC, Schwabe.

What’s the problem with them owning supplement companies we trusted?

It varies between – ethical, moral, and quality.

Additionally, it is never a good idea to let products that are meant for health be run by big pharma companies, especially when it’s heading into only a few owning most.

Now, some of these brands I never did recommend, but some of them I used to.

What are the supplement brands that belong to these mega-corporations now:

  • Country Life
  • Vega
  • One a Day
  • Nature’s Way
  • Integrative Therapeutics
  • Theraveda
  • KAL
  • PaleoPlanet
  • Nutraceutical
  • Solaray
  • Centrum
  • Emergen-C
  • Caltrate
  • MegaFood
  • NatureMade
  • Innate Response Formula
  • Osteo Bi-Flex
  • Solgar
  • Puritan’s Pride
  • American Health
  • Nature’s Bounty
  • Ester-C
  • Sundown Naturals
  • Florajen
  • Swanson Health Products
  • Amway
  • Metagenics
  • Wobenzym
  • Pure encapsulations
  • Douglas Laboratories
  • Garden of Life
  • Genestra Brands
  • NewChapter
  • Renew Life
  • NeoCell
  • Schiff

Ownership of companies shifts all of the time, so it’s something we have to keep an eye on.

I only use supplement companies I know I can trust, which is why the ones listed above I can personally no longer recommend.

I’m sharing this list so you can make your own decisions, and I feel having awareness around who owns them is important in that process.

And considering all of this, that is why my biggest go-to’s continue being Systemic Formulas, CellCore BioSciences, and Standard Process.
