From humble beginnings on the East Side of Manhattan, Solgar has grown into one of the industry's oldest and most respected researchers and manufacturers of nutritional supplements, available in health food stores world-wide.
For over 60 years the science of nutrition and comprehensive education programmes have been as crucial to the company as the high-quality botanicals, vitamins, minerals and food extracts in our formulas.
Our wide selection of products and our dedication to nutritional research is perhaps why we are best known as experts in nutrition.
