The company was founded by current president, Jonathan Rothschild, who began his career as a medical writer, specializing in cardiovascular research. Long before the World Wide Web existed, information was sourced and cross referenced through manual searches in medical journals and Index Medicus. This research formed the foundation for the company and the basis for many product innovations.
With the founding of Cardiovascular Research, Ltd. in 1981, four products were launched: Carnitine, Nialipin (time-released niacin), Omnicholine and Mucopolysaccharide Concentrate. Each of these products have different mechanisms of action in cardiovascular physiology.
In response to the growing needs of individuals with food and chemical sensitivities, Ecological Formulas, a subsidiary, was established in 1982. Ecological Formulas was the first company to introduce: Vitamin C from Tapioca, Non-Yeast GTF, Tri-Salts, Caprylic Acid, Butyric Acid, Sorbic Acid and Selenium Cruciferate. Both companies have been responsible for a number of major product introductions: CDP Choline, Lipoic Acid, Monolaurin, Allithiamine, Pantethine, Chondroitin-4-Sulphate, Melatonin Sustained Release, Magnesium Taurate, Serrapeptase, several formulas containing acetylated amino acids, and cyclic nucleotides.
Cardiovascular Research, Ltd. and Ecological Formulas continue to introduce novel formulas, nutrients and fine chemicals. Some recent additions to our Professional Formulary include Cohealon-IB, Uridine, D-Ribose and Claudivastin.
All products offered by Cardiovascular Research, Ltd. and Ecological Formulas are manufactured in a GMP approved facility and are analyzed for potency and purity.
