Nutri-Link was founded by Michael Ash and Antony Haynes back in 1998 as an extension of their very busy clinical lives. Michael and Antony were increasingly using macro and micro nutrients in their practices to bring about optimal health in their patients.
Determining that the way to maximise the health outcomes of their patients was to modify and improve diet where required and also supplement with ‘professional quality’ food supplements. Michael and Antony embarked on extensive research to source companies that could consistently demonstrate that their products were manufactured to the highest quality, composed of highest quality raw materials, avoided ‘allergen risk’ components and employed scientists, researchers, experienced medical and non-medical clinicians to provide continued input into product development and efficacy.
In addition, they witnessed that the unique biochemical needs of their patients were not being optimally met by the standard retail food supplements available. The current list of companies that Nutri-Link represents is a direct result of that research.
We believe that when provided with the correct nutrition our bodies have a remarkable capacity to self heal. We also believe that nutrition should be personalised to meet the unique biochemical needs of each individual. It is for these reasons and many more that we set up Nutri-Link.
Both founders are passionate about seeking evidence for the application and effect of macro and micro nutrients. This has resulted in pioneering nutritional intervention strategies, independent supported research and many thousands of hours spent reviewing published research papers and journals.
Their early efforts attracted the attention of many nutritionally orientated colleagues who became very interested in the new strategies they were employing and the emerging discipline and philosophy of Functional Medicine that they had begun to employ in their clinical life from the early 1990′s.
Michael and Antony believe that nutritional medicine; that is the use of macro and micro nutrients to beneficially help an individual to optimise their health, where possible, should be evidence-based. For over 25 years they have been attending post graduate educational seminars in the UK and abroad dedicated to learning and understanding the science and application of nutritional medicine.
Nutri-Link has always invested in nutritional medicine education from small, intimate educational groups, to residential courses and international lectures held at the Royal Society of Medicine. Their education programme seeks to encourage world experts to transfer their knowledge to the widest community of healthcare professionals possible.
