Nutraceutical companies have seen dramatic drops in sales as more sophisticated and educated consumers and health care professionals embrace Complementary and Alternative Medicine but demand high quality sophisticated products that assure safety. InVite Health has shown exceptional growth,driven by, states Chairman of the Board Samuel D. Benjamin, M.D. (former Professor and Director of Complementary and Alternative Medicine at State University of New York at Stony Brook School of Medicine and presently Corporate Medical Director of Integrative Services at Humana Inc. ) the fact that “InVite products are conceived in science, research and conventional medicine – focusing on high quality production and quality control comparable to pharmaceutical standards. This makes InVite a credible and formidable nutritional product.” ” In addition”, he points out “InVite has the most illustrious Scientific Advisory Board in the industry lead by both academic leaders in the Complementary and Alternative Medicine movement such as Brian Berman,M.D. from the University of Maryland and David Riley, M.D. from the University of New Mexico and Andrew Weisl,M.D. from the University of Arizona. InVite multivitamins were designed by Weil and Benjamin.
