ABOUT NESTLÉ HEALTH SCIENCE
Nestlé Health Science: Empowering healthier lives through nutrition
Nestlé Health Science is a leader in the field of nutritional science, committed to redefining the management of health. We offer an extensive portfolio of science-based consumer health, medical nutrition and supplement brands.
We believe in empowering healthier lives through nutrition. Our extensive research network, both within Nestlé’s R&D centers as well as with external partners, provides the foundation for products that can help people to live their healthiest lives.
Nutrition can be life-transforming for those who need extra support during short- or long-term medical challenges, and it can enhance the quality of life of those who are already healthy. From babies and children with indications like food allergies, dysphagia, malnutrition, gastrointestinal diseases or impairments to the most senior citizens who have difficulty maintaining the right levels of nutrition; from children whose medical conditions require tube-feeding, to patients who need extra nourishment while hospitalized; and from people who are seeking to maintain a healthy weight, to those who want the support of daily vitamins and supplements to fill in the gaps in their diets, our products are designed for people across the spectrum of life.
Our commitment to science-based products means that we provide nutritional solutions that can make a real difference in the quality of life of customers, patients and caregivers.
