Some Typical Services Rendered to Clients: Nutritional and Health-related Realms and Products

On this page, I offer an overview and brief summary of some services in the nutritional and health-related category which I have rendered to consulting and contractual clients since 1998. In all cases, any significant details which might allow an observer to identify a client or technology or technology details to an inappropriate extent have been obscured to maintain complete client confidentiality.

A note about client privacy and confidentiality: Identity of my clients and details of work rendered for my clients, unless explicit arrangements have been made otherwise, remains entirely confidential and private. This is of utmost importance in this field, as many of my clients have a number of proprietary and trade secrets for technologies and processes which they wish to keep confidential.


  • For an MLM nutritional products vendor: formulation of three antioxidant-rich fermented herbal nutritional supplement products, two in liquid form and one in encapsulated powder form. Included formulation and on-site training of technical staff in fermentation, production and bottling techniques, and assistance with labeling statements and in compiling accurate and informative marketing literature.
    .
  • For a small producer of specialty livestock feed supplements: guided them in using a customized proprietary formulation of beneficial syntropic antioxidative microbes (SAM) and microbial boosters (aka microbial accelerators) to reduce levels of molds (fungi) growing in their product after bottling and after customer had opened bottle. Included product testing and development of appropriate treatment methods in my in-house laboratory.

  • For a leading cutting-edge non-profit research and educational organization: created a very simple, reliable and robust method for monitoring heart rhythm during exercise (both in lab settings and free-roaming in the field) and then transmitting relevant heart rhythm data wirelessly to a remote receiver/PC to allow logging, analysis, display and real-time monitoring of various indices of heart rate variability (HRV) and related measures of psychophysiological heart-centered coherence. Project included creation and delivery of four functional prototypes for research use, and included delivery of relevant files and diagrams to allow automated production of the printed circuit boards needed for the device.
  • For a producer/distributor of a high-end specialty consumer/skin care products: was asked to assist them in increasing levels of PNSB microbes and their metabolites in their syntropic antioxidative microbes (SAM) product to ensure greater levels of product effectiveness. This work involved testing for levels of PNSB and metabolites using proprietary rapid-assay methods in my in-house laboratory as well as testing of representative samples by a certified external independent testing laboratory.

  • For a small nutritional products company: product development of four fermented antioxidant-rich nutritional supplement beverages (aka "brews"). Included formulation and on-site training of technical staff in production and bottling techniques.
  • For a small health-conscious and "green" health products company: product development of two fermented antioxidant-rich herbal nutritional supplement products and two antioxidant-rich fermented skin care products. Included formulation, brewing of pilot test batches and on-site training of technical staff in production and bottling techniques

  • For a large producer/distributor of nutritional supplement products: Served as project manager and research coordinator for their efforts to evaluate three in-house antioxidant nutritional products and compare them with a similar product from a competitor. This involved performing numerous evaluative tests in my in-house laboratory and also recommending and coordinating numerous tests by external independent certified antioxidant testing laboratories. My services involved eventually providing guidance on labeling and marketing claims and on FDA compliance.

  • For a producer/distributor of fermented antioxidant nutritional supplement products: was asked to act as project manager in testing of a somewhat a novel new nutritional supplement product which the company had developed, performing numerous evaluative tests in my in-house laboratory and also recommending and coordinating numerous tests by external independent testing laboratories and eventually providing guidance on labeling and marketing claims. My work included use of in-house measures of ORP, PH, RH2 score (aka RH), and some proprietary rapid assay measures of singlet oxygen quenching ability and other rapid assay measures of antioxidant activity and coordinating numerous antioxidant activity tests on the product by independent certified antioxidant laboratories; these tests included ORAC, NORAC, HORAC, SORAC, SOD activity, and several other assays. Finally, my work included assessment of the properties of the product in the realm of acting as an electron transfer agent or electron shuttle in facilitating or catalyzing certain antioxidant activities. Our work eventually showed that this product had applications in industrial and waste remediation as well as in the fields of human and animal nutrition.

  • For a small wheatgrass producer: product development of two high-antioxidant fermented wheatgrass juice products capable of being stored at room temperature with a shelf life of over three years. Also provided guidance on applications and use of a customized proprietary formulation of beneficial syntropic antioxidative microbes (SAM) and microbial boosters (aka microbial accelerators) in the wheatgrass growing process.

  • For a medium-sized producer/grower of sprouted products: assistance in design and fabrication of a large flow-thru water electrolyzer for production of electrolyzed acid water (aka EAW), also known as electrolyzed oxidized water (EOW). Also provided guidance on applications and on use of a customized proprietary formulation of beneficial syntropic antioxidative microbes (SAM) and microbial boosters (aka microbial accelerators) in the sprouting process.

  • For an animal nutritional products producer and distributor: formulation assistance and project management guidance in development of several nutritional supplement products for pets and livestock employing a customized proprietary formulation of beneficial syntropic antioxidative microbes (SAM) and microbial boosters (aka microbial accelerators).

  • For a large established high-end nutritional products producer and distributor: formulation assistance and project management guidance in development of several nutritional supplement products a customized proprietary formulation of beneficial syntropic antioxidative microbes (SAM) and microbial boosters (aka microbial accelerators).

  • For a medium-sized worldwide marketer of a line of specialty water-treatment devices: served as project manager to research the claims which the company had been making regarding the effects of their devices, including some health-related claims, and to steer and manage a large volume of contractual studies by external independent testing laboratories to document some of the effects. This role included performing product testing in my in-house laboratory as well as referrals to external labs. Included evaluation of their marketing material and website claims from a viewpoint of commonsense truth, ethics and compliance with FDA and FTC guidelines.

  • For a small producer/distributor of specialty organic food products: was asked to evaluate several competing sustainable and green disinfecting technologies for treating salad greens and for FDA and USDA-compliant sanitation of food preparation surfaces; and eventually assisted in selection and evaluation of water electrolyzers for production of electrolyzed oxidized water (EOW), aka electrolyzed acid water (EAW.) Included on-site visits to facilities.

  • For a distributor of environmental and health-related products: was asked to investigate and evaluate the claims made for a number of kitchen countertop water ionizers which claimed to produce alkaline ionized water, which is more accurately described as electrolyzed reduced water, aka ERW, and to assist them in understanding the claims and the realities behind the effects of the water produced by such devices.

  • For two nutritional supplement vendors: formulated unique antioxidant helper (aka antioxidant assistant or antioxidant mediator) nutrients for use as cofactors with antioxidant formulations.
