About Nutriex

Nutriex anti-inflammatory and joint nutrition products allow athletes and other adults to stay active and recover quickly from injury or surgery.


Nutriex was created in 1999 by Dr. Thomas Rosenberg, Dr. Randall Olson, and bioengineer Kathleen Deffner in response to their clinical requirements for nutrients, in lieu of drugs, which could fuel healing mechanisms in their treatments of eye and orthopedic conditions. Rosenberg had observed that regular NSAIDs for arthritis were "cover-up drugs" with unacceptable long term side effects. At age 46, his own wear-and-tear arthritis needed a sustainable solution that would work via natural pathways of anti-inflammatory and joint nutrition. Dr. Olson recognized that of the dozen existing prescriptions for dry eye syndrome, none actually healed the condition. He optimized an omega-3 preparation that became Nutriex Omega-3/Fish Oil.

Recognizing the advantages of multi-system nutrient supplementation and to assist formulation, a science panel was created. Experts in preventive cardiology, immunology, gerontology, exercise science, nutrition and others were recruited. Nutriex Health was formulated and manufactured in Ogden, Utah under F.D.A. standards and the highest manufacturing scrutiny. Later, products were also deemed to be important and then formulated to supplement athlete nutrition, protein, omega-3, bone and joint, and a low-cost multivitamin without joint nutrients over a 10-year period. Nutriex products have been adopted by health providers and sport-de ning athletes in cycling, rock climbing, golf, winter sports, rodeo, and hundreds of their recreational counterparts. Thousands of patients have benefitted by the Nutriex products to amplify good nutrition and to avoid unnecessary drug prescriptions. Serving sizes are customized to your weight and quality of your diet. We use clinically proven, highest quality ingredients that are prepared for optimal absorption and higher value over other leading supplements. In every case possible, pure, organic ingredients that are devoid of toxic residue are used.

Nutriex is so amazing, I have been taking it in daily life and during expeditions since I was first introduced to it in 2002 when I had my meniscus repaired. Everything noteworthy that I have accomplished with my skiing has been post knee repair and I am sure that the nutritional support has played a role in making that possible. —Kit DesLauriers

Kristen Ulmer, Former member, US Mogul Team Kristen Ulmer began as a mogul skier on the US Ski Team and quickly turned to Big Mountain skiing- jumping off cliffs for cameras and performing you-fall-you-die ski descents around the world. She was subsequently named the best extreme woman skier in the world for 12 years in a row.

Since being on the US Ski Team, my knees haven't been the same (mogul skiing no less) - might have had something to do with the dual ACL ligament blow-outs and the eight knee surgeries. I assumed I could no longer be competitive. Someone suggested these little gold and white pills, which I took faithfully. After six weeks, the function in my knees had improved - it was amazing. Thank you so much Nutriex! —Kristen Ulmer

Bike Racer and Skier
have been an elite level cross country skier for Salomon and bike racer for many road teams for 21 years. I still race at this level because I recover quicker when I use Nutriex Sport and Fish Oil. The Nutriex Sport helps my joints to last longer and feel stronger during the Pro, Cat 1 and 2 stage races that I compete in all over the country. I love the Fish Oil product because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Recovery is so important for "masters racers" like myself. I rely on Nutriex everyday so I have the advantage to remain competitive with guys just half my age. Thanks! —Gardie Jackson

A supplement that is geared toward my athletic endeavors is what I needed. Nutriex Sport gives me the recovery and preventative health that I have to have. —Joe Kinder
