50 year

Since 1973, DaVinci® Laboratories has been a leader in nutritional research, product development, and innovation. To celebrate 50 years, we're reflecting on the milestones that have defined our mission to bring the best possible products to our customers, with research-backed supplements to support inflammatory health, restful sleep, a strong immune system, and balanced emotional health.*


FoodScience®, LLC, the parent company of DaVinci® Laboratories, was founded with a vision to support health through the power of high-quality supplements.* Over the past five decades, we've stood firm in our dedication to providing professional-grade supplements and nutraceuticals known for their quality and efficacy in the industry.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we reflect on how far we've come and look forward to a future where we continue to innovate and advance the science of nutrition to help people live healthier, happier lives.*


A meaningful milestone in our journey came when we secured patents for DMG, or Dimethylglycine, a nutrient known for its versatile health benefits.* DMG, a derivative of the amino acid glycine, plays a vital role in heart health and cellular energy production, immune system support, mood and energy balance, and overall wellness.* This finding allowed us to develop a range of DMG products and offerings, which have since become widely used by practitioners and consumers. We take pride that our DMG supplements have helped individuals and integrative practitioners alike support their health and that of their patients.*


In a stride to advance joint health and our joint support offerings, we secured a patent for the combination of Perna® canaliculus, Glucosamine, and MSM.* This unique synergy of healthy ingredients has made a significant difference in the choices available for joint support.* Perna® canaliculus, commonly known as the green-lipped mussel, is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which support a healthy inflammatory response beneficial to joint comfort.* Glucosamine is a building block for cartilage, promoting its regeneration and overall joint health.* MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) complements this combination by helping to provide sulfur, a key element for collagen production and joint tissue integrity.*

Our patented blend, Perna® Plus, is the foundation of our joint support product line, which is formulated to promote joint flexibility and comfort.* We’ve been thrilled with the impact these formulations have had on our customers over the past 50 years, supporting them to stay active and mobile throughout their lives.* We look forward to staying at the forefront of joint health solutions for decades to come.


In 2013, a technological breakthrough reshaped the landscape of our supplement offerings with the introduction of liposomal liquid production, changing how we deliver essential nutrients to our customers.* In many cases, liquid supplements provide distinct advantages over traditional forms, such as pills or capsules. They are easier to swallow and boast superior absorption rates with many nutrients, allowing the body to gain maximum benefit from the nutrients they contain.* Populations that can especially benefit from liposomal liquids (and liquids in general) include children, the elderly, those who have trouble swallowing pills, and individuals with digestion or malabsorption issues.*

What sets our liposomal liquid supplements apart is their ability to help enhance bioavailability—the efficient absorption of active ingredients into the bloodstream.* Since so many struggle with proper nutrient absorption, our move to using liposomal technology empowered many to achieve improved health through effective supplementation.*

Some products we are especially proud of include Collagen Bright™ and D3/K2 Liquid, Liposomal C, B12 MC Liquid, and Liposomal Melatonin Spray. Explore the benefits of our liposomal liquid supplements and delve deeper into this transformative technology.


In 2016, a significant development occurred in our journey with the introduction of the DaVinci® Benefits line. This line of products was created to address the metabolic and biochemical processes within the body using advanced, high-end, and high-power formulations.*

The DaVinci® Benefits line includes products like GI Benefits®, Phyto Benefits™, Andro Benefits™, and Neuro Benefits™. These products are carefully crafted to provide targeted support to help various health concerns by maximizing their potency and effectiveness.* Our formulations support cardiovascular health, improve cognitive function, along with several other specific health goals.*


A turning point for DaVinci® Laboratories occurred in 2019 with the launch of the Little DaVinci® line. This innovative line was created to provide children with the same adequate levels of essential nutrients found in our adult formulas while delivering them in a kid-friendly format.*

Little DaVinci® products are not only designed to taste great (without harmful added sugars, sweeteners, and artificial ingredients found in many children’s supplements), but are also easy for children to take.* Delivery method adjustments help make sure kids are receiving essential nutrients in a way that is comfortable for them, such as chewable vitamin C, sleep support, Focus Chewable, Immuni-Z, and others.* Promoting lifelong wellness begins with the youngest members of our community, and the Little DaVinci® line helps children fill in nutritional gaps with high-quality and potent supplements designed for growing bodies.*

To explore our specially formulated supplements for children and learn more about the importance of early nutritional support, read our children’s nutritional health Ebook.* Our intention to continue expanding our children’s product offerings remains strong, as we understand that doctor-formulated nutraceuticals designed for kids aren’t widely available.


Now, in 2023, we are thrilled to announce that we’ve secured a patent for Provail® Whey Protein Encapsulated Glutathione, and this has enabled us to offer two new exciting products: DaVinci® Laboratories Glutathione with Provail® and Glutathione Bright with Provail®.

Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant and is crucial in maintaining cellular health.* Healthcare practitioners have historically found standard glutathione supplements to be problematic, as they are easily broken down and poorly absorbed.

Both of our new innovative supplements, Glutathione with Provail® and Glutathione Bright with Provail®, are formulated using a revolutionary whey protein encapsulation delivery system, technology that involves the microencapsulation of active ingredients and allows for precise and controlled release within the body.* This delivery system worked better, faster, and went deeper than the leading glutathione products in a published animal study.[1]* Along with being more bioavailable, DaVinci® Laboratories glutathione products were seen to boost blood antioxidant activity and produce peak plasma glutathione faster than leading competitors.

We were also amazed to learn in our research and testing that because whey-encapsulated glutathione is 2.5 times better absorbed than leading glutathione supplements, you get the same effect with half as much. This is promising for doctors and healthcare professionals who want their patients to derive the maximum benefits of glutathione, and reap the rewards of taking whey protein. Whey boasts a rich source of cysteine, which also boosts glutathione levels.

The implications of Provail® are profound, as it opens up new possibilities for creating supplements that are even more effective in promoting health and well-being.* These products will help boost glutathione levels in ways that haven’t been possible before, supporting the most challenging cases of oxidant stress, everyday toxic exposures, age-related issues, healing, and repair.



The Journey Continues: Beyond 50 Years

Since our founding in 1973, we have set out with a vision to harness nature’s gifts for human health, leading to cutting-edge patents, product lines, and technologies.

From pioneering DMG formulations to redefining joint health with products like Perna®, Glucosamine, and MSM and introducing innovative liposomal liquid supplements, our primary aim has always been to empower healthcare practitioners and consumers with top-quality products.* This mission also extends to meeting the unique needs of various generations, from the Little DaVinci® line for children to the latest Provail® technology for enhanced supplement delivery.*

As we look to the future, our dedication to innovation and scientific development continues to drive us forward. We are excited to keep exploring new horizons in nutritional science, taking steps towards healthier, happier lives for everyone.

We want to express our gratitude to our valued practitioners, customers, and partners who have been a part of this incredible journey. Your trust and loyalty motivate us to pursue excellence every day, and we look forward to many more years of serving you.

Thank you for being here. We look forward to the next 50 years together.
