Many nutritional supplement companies today claim to be based in science, yet few define what that really means. Quality of Life Labs has a very simple, yet exacting, scientific standard: 100 percent of the ingredients used in its formulas are backed by human clinical studies and are delivered in doses consistent with the supporting research.
In practical application, this means that even if an ingredient has great supporting test tube and animal studies, Quality of Life will not use it unless it has also been the subject of positive human clinical research. Why? Many times ingredients that perform well in a laboratory setting do not hold up under the scrutiny of human clinical studies. Being dedicated to making products that work means being dedicated to human clinical research—no ifs, ands or buts.
Quality of Life Company History
In 1977, Steve Yamada founded Maypro as a distributor of top-quality nutraceuticals and fine chemicals to the United States. Over the years, Maypro introduced many of today’s specialty blockbuster ingredients—such as CoQ10, glucosamine, chondroitin and alpha lipoic acid—to the American marketplace.
Kinoko 750 100ccIn the late 1990s, Yamada became particularly excited by AHCC, a hybridized medicinal mushroom extract backed by dozens of studies published in peer-reviewed journals. At the time, however, few companies were willing to risk launching a brand-new, proprietary product that consumers had never heard of.
In 1998, Yamada established Quality of Life Labs to provide American consumers with access to AHCC and other life-changing nutraceutical ingredients. For 15 years, Quality of Life has been the leader in bringing clinically backed ingredients from all over the world in finished product form to the U.S. market. Even though today Quality of Life operates as an independent company, its relationship with Maypro provides it access to unique, proprietary and science-backed ingredients.
