Nutrition Care was founded over 40 years ago by Professor Ian Brighthope, a pioneer of nutritional medicine in Australia and worldwide. He is credited with coining the term ‘integrative medicine’ to define a healthcare philosophy that combines complementary medicines and modern medical practices to help optimise a patient’s health.

Initially, Professor Ian Brighthope developed supplements solely to be used within his own patient clinic, but extended the availability of his range to other healthcare practitioners as the demand for the products grew, eventually leading to his founding of Nutrition Care Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd. 

It was during Professor Brighthope’s early medical practice that he recognised the importance of using optimal nutritional and supplementation in the treatment and prevention of illness, fuelling his passion and commitment to improve people’s wellbeing through high quality, innovative, evidence-based formulations and education to help the wider community to achieve better health outcomes.

Today our philosophy still stands. And in keeping with that philosophy, Nutrition Care Pharmaceuticals has made the transition from producing ‘Practitioner Only’ supplements, to the creation of a range of consumer products available in pharmacy, making good quality healthcare accessible to a broader range of the community.
