Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR) has a vision to transform innovative supplement formulas from scientific research into safe, evidence-based natural health products to support you on your wellness journey. Whether you’re looking for prevention, correction or improvement, every formula is designed to deliver the right ingredients with the right dose at the right time for your unique needs.
Innovation You Can Trust
At AOR, we believe that truth and transparency are the most important values for any organization to uphold. It is through ethical discipline and evidenced-based science that we lead and advance the natural health industry. As visionaries, we seek to catalyze change and challenge conventions through continuous innovation. We exist to create safe, effective, and therapeutic solutions from nature, so you can always trust that we deliver the right molecule in the right dose, at the right place, at the right time.
Commitment to Quality
AOR puts pharmaceutical principles into practice to create the most effective products with the highest quality raw materials. We seek out the most bioavailable, effective and sustainably sourced raw materials from locations around the world. Our processes allow us to ensure potency, purity and traceability from plant to product, giving our customers the certainty that they are always getting the same, effective formulation. We introduce and implement the latest testing strategies as part of our quality assurance process because we believe that it’s not about checking boxes, but how the boxes are checked that is important.
Research & Education
AOR believes education is a powerful tool and strives to give consumers and health care professionals all the facts they need to make informed health decisions. AOR scientists are continually researching, sourcing, adapting and testing formulas for every health concern to bring innovative and effective products to the market.
We not only utilize current research to design our formulations, but we make hands-on innovation happen every day. In our labs, we experiment with existing formulations, processes and technologies to provide our customers with the most advanced products available. We also collaborate with researchers in over 30 universities around the world, part of the clinical trial process that verifies the research.
Part of AOR’s mission is to connect with and empower consumers and the health-based community at large through the sharing of science-based information. To that end, we developed our ongoing print publication ‘The Truth Series’ and our Advances online magazine.
Social & Environmental Responsibility
AOR has a strong commitment to both social and environmental responsibility, supporting local charities and always striving for greener solutions in every aspect of our production process. Through rigorous sourcing methods, we ensure that, as much as possible, our ingredients are derived from sustainable and ethical sources without genetic modification. Finally, we demonstrate our commitment to transparency within our community by staying focused on solid science instead of popular market trends.
AOR was founded in 1991 by Dr. Traj Nibber. Our story began when Dr. Nibber was contacted by People With AIDS (PWA) for assistance in sourcing nutritional supplements that were difficult to procure. In the beginning, Dr. Nibber simply sourced and compounded the specific formulations needed by his PWA contacts. Later, as word of Dr. Nibber’s helpfulness spread and the need for his services expanded, Dr. Nibber began to develop standardized formulas that could be manufactured on a larger scale by contract manufacturers.
Now based in Calgary, Alberta, AOR has an established reputation as the most advanced supplement formulator in the country. As such, AOR is always looking for ways to support people in their desire to keep their bodies healthy and functioning at an optimal level.
Looking to the Future
AOR will continue to be a leading provider of genuinely innovative nutraceuticals in North America.Through cutting edge research, we will consistently put science-backed natural health products into the hands of health care practitioners and consumers. We believe wellness is personal and not, “one size fits all”. It’s about finding the right formula and the right dose for each individual. Reach your peak with AOR!
