The study findings should be provided in simple language, with precise information on the ingredient that has been studied
Analysing scientific study reports is an important part of our work in the nutraceutical industry. However, people with non-scientific backgrounds may find it challenging to confidently read & critically analyse the reports.
This article from NutraIngredients.com gives an overview and some important tips on reading scientific reports.
Companies should follow the gold standard of a clinical study, which is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised trial in a healthy population for the food & supplement industry. The study findings should be provided in simple language, with precise information on the ingredient that has been studied, the exact demographic, and having an ideal sample size & duration of the study.
At Bio-gen Extracts, the company heavily invests in the scientific studies of our ingredients and also make it convenient for everyone to use our research publications. Efforts are made to ensure that our study designs comply with international guidelines, and are thoroughly vetted by third-party organisations and industry stakeholders. This ensures that you are not overwhelmed with too much technical information initially, while ensuring that you get easy-to-analyse study-details when needed.
