Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR) has an established reputation in Canada as the most advanced supplement formulator in the country - and likely, the world. Mainstays of the supplement market today - such as glucosamine sulfate for joint structure and S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) for support of balanced mood and thought patterns - were first brought to the Canadian market by AOR. And the company has continued to innovate over the years, making its line consistent in its record of putting science-backed natural health products into the hands of health practitioners and into the lives of patients years ahead of their secondary acceptance by the mainstream dietary supplement industry.

The Innovation Track Record

In the short space of the intervening decade, AOR has become a leading provider of genuinely innovative nutraceuticals in North America and around the world, with their "Bottled Revolutions:"tm groundbreaking, research-backed orthomolecules and botanicals which are new to the nation and often to North America or to the world. AOR released Canada's first defined pollen extract for prostate health (Prostaphil-2®), the only supplement documented in clinical trials to directly affect prostate structure by reducing the volume of the gland itself, rather than simply relieving symptoms as with saw palmetto and other conventional prostate herbals. It was the first company to bring a geniunely complete E-complex supplement in the form of "Total E" tocopherols and tocotrienols. And it brought Lyprinol ,® a source the rare omega-3 fatty acid ETA, which provides more potent support against inflammation than conventional fish oil (EPA) and flax oil (LNA) omega-3 sources, to Canada first.

But AOR's influence has extended well beyond Canada's borders. AOR brought the world its first R(+)-Lipoic Acid supplements, containing the genuine orthomolecular form rather than the racemic hybrid of natural R(+)- and synthetic S(-)-enantiomers found in conventional "lipoic acid" or "alpha-lipoic acid" supplements. The company brought forward North America's - and now Europe's - first Menatetrenone (under the name Peak K2), the mammalian-specific vitamer form of vitamin K2, documented to support bone health in multiple clinical trials and registered as a "drug" for osteoporosis in Japan. Benfotiamine, a lipid-soluble derivative of thiamine long used clinically in Germany to relieve the symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy, has more recently been documented to reduce the burden of advanced glycation endproducts (AGE), and as experimental evidence came in to support its ability to maintain healthy protein structure in the nerves, retina, and kidneys in the face of a sugary assault, AOR became the first North American supplier of this key nutriceutical. And the first on Earth to deliver the revolutionary bone health mineral Strontium at a clinically-tested dose was again AOR.

AOR is often the trend-setter distributing cutting edge products long before the other companies have heard of the ingredients used. They were among the very first to sell strontium citrate, vitamin 2 and a host of other nifty things. In fact they are still one of the few companies to distribute real K-2 in 15 mg capsules. Milligram, not microgram.
