HealthBridge offers research, development and marketing support to help you build on the success of your existing brand or to create a fresh start, through the development of new product formulations, combinations, dosages and indications for use.

From conception to product launch, we offer complete turnkey solutions that increase your market share and close the loop between you and your customers through effective and targeted scientific marketing communication tactics and proven product development strategies. Our experience has shown that for most companies, employing a full time staff to fill these part time roles is both inefficient from a cost perspective and difficult to staff from a talent perspective.

We also offer complete problem solving strategies, because sometimes even the best-planned product launches come up against unexpected problems. Whether you have a product that needs new life, or you are faced with competitor challenges, we can help you overcome them. Our problem-solving capabilities combine proven turnkey solutions with clinical, marketing and creative strategies that match your company’s philosophy. We work to counteract competitive challenges and arm your brand with the weapons it needs to succeed in a challenging and rapidly changing environment.

HealthBridge Management's core activity is the conceptualization, design and formulation of innovative, clinically effective and scientifically valid vitamin, mineral, homeopathic and herbal products for the pharmaceutical and nutritional supplement industry.   We are committed to enhancing your company’s product development cycle by identifying new, innovative products, creating custom formulations and developing seamless scientific support.

HealthBridge has developed novel techniques in the formulation and design of new products and has unquestionably mastered the science and the art of nutritional product formulation.

The Science

Our product formulation experts will help you every step of the way in the creation of your new, best selling product or product line.  We will evaluate the research for you, support your new product design and development process, ensure product line integrity, and manage all claims substantiations, which will support product placement.   Our experts do not simply group several raw materials together that have similar, recognized mechanisms of action or indications for use.  They conduct exhaustive research reviews of all pertinent clinical studies published or submitted for publication throughout the world.  They also conduct exhaustive reviews of new patent filings of innovative nutraceuticals.  Further, we tap into our network of practicing physicians throughout the world for insight into uniquely designed, tried and true natural formulations. When a master formula has been created especially for you, you will receive complete third party fully referenced product literature that details out every aspect of the innovative formula- from key medicinal constituents within each raw material, to clinically supported indications for use, to known mechanisms of action, to recommended dosage regimens.  Working with your marketing talent or ours, this information will form the basis for accurate consumer-friendly literature about your new best selling product.

The Art

HealthBridge strives to create a product formulation whose collective raw materials function in harmony to produce a clinical effect that is far greater than the effects of any individual component within the formula.  This represents the art of product formulation.  Through our clearly written technical writing pieces you and your customers may gain a clear understanding of how the ingredients work together to elicit the optimal response.
