About Layer Origin Nutrition
Two food scientists met in a Cornell University lab in 2017 and realized they both had a passion for improving human health.
After nailing the science, they partnered with a former Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist turned communications/marketing pro to get the word out.
Layer Origin Nutrition is now made up of a small team of scientists and staff trained at top institutions including Columbia University, University of Missouri, Auburn University, Pennsylvania State University, The University of North Carolina, and Cornell University.
The team includes two former university professors and more than 25 years of combined professional experience.
A full line of cutting edge supplements for gut health, immunity, heart health, weight management, and blood sugar control.
Layer Origin Nutrition is best known for its comprehensive line of Human Milk Oligosaccharide (HMO) supplements.
Layer Origin has the largest line of HMO products for adults in the world.
With multiple patent applications filed and innovative proprietary methods used for multiple products, Layer Origin Nutrition is more than just a supplement company. We are a technology company that specializes in processes for developing the most effective nutritional products possible.
We began conducting research and forming the company in 2017 and then launched in early 2020 (right as an unprecedented global pandemic was taking hold - great timing!).
Our launch came after a few years of research and development, applying for patents, and obtaining trademarks.
Despite the pandemic and other obstacles, Layer Origin Nutrition has seen steady growth since its inception and continues to launch new products to help people on their journey to better whole-body health.
We're proudly based in beautiful Ithaca, NY (about a four hour drive from NYC and a five and a half hour drive from Montreal) in the Cornell Business & Technology Park.
Our facility includes offices, a research lab, a production line, and our warehouse.
Ithaca is nestled in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York. It's a wonderful place described as "10 square miles surrounded by reality" because of its breathtaking outdoor spaces and bohemian vibes.
There's plenty of hiking, wineries, and sporting activities within reach.
Our Ivy-League trained scientists are constantly pouring over the latest research and have the training to correctly interpret the data.
They're taking the key findings and formulating unique products that can help you quickly progress in your health journey.
We understand that there are "layers" to your well-being including exercise, nutrition, and mental health.
We believe strategic supplementation is one of those layers and we know that much of our health originates in the gut.
Our chief scientists was also deeply inspired by the foundational work of Dr. Peter Layer at the Mayo Clinic.
We own 400+ acres of organic farmland in Central New York allowing us to source many of our ingredients from right here in our own backyard.
Our chief scientist conducts research on-site in our lab.
We manufacture, bottle, and label all of our products in our state of the art GMP-certified plant located down the hall from our lab.
