SP Nutra uses a high throughput screening technology to analyze how food and plant molecules effect various diseases. The result is novel nutraceuticals which have been proven to treat specific diseases.

Product Discovery

Our products are all derived from nature and scientifically proven to work.

SP Nutra’s discovery of naturally derived bioactives that can treat or prevent disease starts with renowned scientists, doctors and researchers in Canadian universities and hospitals.

SP Nutra was created as a result of the discoveries that originated from an academic lab that developed a unique high throughput screen of isolated molecules from natural extracts.

What many people don’t know is that natural extracts can be made up of hundreds of individual molecules. Some molecules might not have any effect on the human body while others have strong effects.  The process of testing each of these molecules individually for specific bioactivity is critical to formulating a supplement that has an efficacious effect when consumed.

It takes about 5-7 years of research and development in order to validate a bioactive molecule as efficacious for a specific health condition.  It begins in an academic laboratory with the discovery and validation process and in collaborations with doctors, hospitals, research institutes and centres of excellence for pre-clinical and clinical trial development. 

Our motivation for investing time and resources into the scientific validation of naturally occurring bioactives comes from a belief that many solutions to human health concerns can be found in nature. The belief in the power of nature sparked an interest in taking a deeper look at the molecules in food and plants.  We have barely touched the surface of understanding all naturally derived compounds and how they can treat or prevent disease in humans.  There were uses of naturally derived compounds beyond what we know today from traditional uses and SP Nutra is on a mission to uncover these uses one by one.

SP Nutra is dedicated to unlocking this untapped resource and developing products that can help improve the lives and health of people in a less harmful, more natural way.
