INNOVATION & RESEARCH
We are a research and development entity founded by scientists, not a marketing company. So we’re about the steak, not the sizzle. We don’t buy into fad ingredients or nutritional panaceas. We tell it like it is, and exist to make a difference. We are about integrity, trust and advancing the science of nutrition.
Nugevity prides itself in designing products with unparalleled safety and efficacy. This is why we were awarded a Space Act Agreement, and our scientific team continues to engage in cutting-edge research with world-class partners.

Since 2005, our scientists have collaborated with NASA in the development of nutritional technologies to augment the health and performance of US astronauts.
Space Act Agreement
NASA Co-Developed Technologies
Since 1999, AmeriSciences® brand products have been formulated and dispensed by clinicians in the United States. AmeriSciences® is a trademark now owned by Nugevity.
In 2005, NASA entered into a Space Act Agreement with AmeriSciences®. The purpose of the partnership was to develop nutritional technologies and countermeasures that can help protect the health of astronauts during space travel; and provide optimal nutrition during the arduous pre-flight training process.
As a result of this partnership, several technologies were developed:
BioRelease™: A proprietary protocol that improves tablet dissolution profiles, resulting in increased nutrient release and bioavailability. Nugevity products featuring BioRelease™ technology consistently deliver a dissolution rate of 95% or more, which is better than even current pharmaceutical standards. BioRelease™ was co-developed by NASA.
Pharma-IQ™: A set of quality and manufacturing standards that surpass current regulatory requirements for dietary supplements. Pharma-IQ™ was specifically designed for NASA’s mission-critical products that have zero room for error. Pharma-IQ™ was co-developed by NASA.
AS 10®: A patent-pending nutritional protocol formulated to improve the nutritional status of crew members. AS 10® is currently being researched as a countermeasure to protect humans against the harmful effects of space radiation; to increase resilience; and to enhance physical, mental, and ocular performance. The patent application lists both NASA and Nugevity personnel as co-inventors.
In addition, Nugevity has launched a separate family of consumer products bearing the brand AS 10®, which are civilian versions of the nutritional protocols currently under research.
