Dr. Michael Colgan is an internationally renowned research scientist. He is acknowledged as one of the world’s most popular scientific authorities in nutrition, exercise, and the inhibition of aging. At age 78, he is a living example of the power of nutritional science to maintain lean and vibrant health. From more than 50 years of aging research, and from training many world champion athletes, he brings a unique understanding of environmental toxins and how to combat them.
Trained at the Universities of Wellington and Auckland in New Zealand, and Rockefeller University in New York City, Dr. Colgan has written over thirty books for the public and speaks at many venues each year. From 1987 to 1998 Dr. Colgan was Director and President of the Colgan Institute with offices in both the USA and Canada. The Colgan Institute was primarily concerned with the effects of nutrition and exercise on athletic performance, aging and the prevention of degenerative disease. In June 2014 Dr. Colgan was honored to be elected as a fellow to the American College of Nutrition.
In 1998 Dr. Colgan took a step back from the Colgan Institute to devote more time to his research on neurogenesis of the brain. Interest in this research culminated with his partnership with a nutrition company approaching him in 2011 to join their Scientific Advisory Board. With a commitment to quality products and sound research, Dr. Colgan was proud to become a member of their science team. From there Dr. Colgan aided in research and new product development on a large scale.
