RICHARD PERRY Chef / Founder
Richard Perry is vegan chef, recipe developer and founder of NutriGardens. After a serious bicycling accident Richard began juicing certain fruits and vegetables that were…
generally known for their healing properties. In the process he learned about functional foods, especially beets, and their benefits beyond their basic known nutrition. Specific plants have natural chemicals that protect themselves from disease. Those chemicals can be isolated and concentrated into true superfoods that help the body function at its highest level. Professional and collegiate sports teams, Olympians and elite athletes use Nutrigardens’ functional food products worldwide, in addition to people looking for overall improved health.
NORMAN HORD, Ph.D. Chief Science Advisor
Norman Hord serves as a faculty member at Oregon State University. Dr. Hord is a Registered Dietitian and oversees a research program that focuses dietary nitrate and nitrite…
in the prevention and treatment of diet-related chronic diseases. Dietary nitrate and nitrite contributes to endogenous NO (nitric oxide) production from nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway, a newly identified pathway for endogenous bioactive NO production. In this context, plant foods rich in nitrate and nitrite may prove to be an effective strategy for cardiovascular disease prevention. Dr. Hord received the Master of Public Health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and his doctoral degree in nutrition from Purdue University.
OUR RESEARCH PROCESS
Once we decide the most important problems worth solving, we conduct extensive research, obtain the highest quality ingredients, and test for microorganisms such as bacteria, pathogens, yeasts and molds.
After the chosen ingredients are blended to our specifications, a second test is conducted to meet FDA and other regulatory agency requirements before we test the product among real human subjects.
We collect user data, make adjustments if needed to our formula and retest as many times as necessary before moving ahead with production.
These processes ensure that our products are safe, clean labeled and proven effective. Nutrigardens has a deep sense of responsibility to do the right things.
