NuLiv Science USA started in 1997 as a personal favor for a TCM physician. The doctor needed a higher quality extract for his practice and the co-founders realized there was a unique business opportunity.
From that humble start, NuLiv Science has grown into a full range ingredient supplier, early stage developer of nutraceuticals and turnkey service provider to the dietary supplement & cosmeceutical industry. NuLiv Science is a subsidiary of NuLiv Holding Inc., a multinational holding company with operations on 3 continents.
Our research strategy is centered on Traditional Chinese Medicine. TCM offers organized and time tested wisdom for holistic and systemic health. Our mission of discovering novel bioactive ingredients and development of nutraceuticals germinate from TCM’s extensive knowledge base.
We focus on the principle of “chi” and “xue”, the energy aspects in TCM. We review TCM guidelines and therapies and identify “chi” and “xue” herbs and botanicals. From there, we follow modern pharmaceutical protocols, identifying active compounds and markers. This process is facilitated by evidence-based studies, and when possible, by high-impact peer reviewed journals.
