After a new product is envisioned, it then moves onto the scientific formulation stage – a combined scientific effort of some of the most respected medical doctors and researchers in the world. MusclePharm’s Chief Medical Director and Formulator is one of the leading sports nutrition doctors in the country and is highly sought after by elite professional athletes from around the world, including players from the NFL, NHL, MLB and more. His in-depth expertise comes from years of practicing medicine as well as a record-breaking powerlifter. As an athlete and physician, he understands the complicated relationship between training, supplementation, nutrition, injury rehabilitation and performance enhancement. But he doesn’t work alone. Our team also consists of some of the top former researchers from GlaxoSmithKline, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Pfizer, The National Institute of Health (NIH), The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), the United States Food and Drug Administration, as well as the Assistant United States Surgeon General. This diverse team of some of the brightest and most experienced minds in science and nutrition is responsible for creating MusclePharm’s scientifically advanced – often breakthrough – combinations and ratios of ingredients.
