Since its foundation in 1968, PVM has remained dedicated to a better understanding of the complex biological process of human nutrition.

Science’s understanding of the complexity of the life process is incomplete. We therefore approach the intricate nature of human biology and human nutritional and energy needs with humility. We also apply all scientific findings with care.

 

To do this we employ a cutting edge understanding of the biology of energy exchange between humans and their environment. We develop all our products using the latest scientific findings in the field of bio-energetics. This is why our packaging is “Version Coded”: we will upgrade products as our knowledge and understanding grows over time.

 

At PVM we adhere to our Code of Ethics to ensure that we research, develop, produce and market quality nutritional products in a responsible and ethical manner.

 

PVM guarantees that we endeavour to carefully disclose nutritional information at all times and that our products will not make unsubstantiated, irresponsible health or performance claims.

As part of our Code of Ethics, PVM guarantees that all our products are of the highest quality and that all ingredients used are deemed legal substances by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency).

 

 

The health and nutritional industry is poorly regulated. Opportunistic companies have often made false claims, exploiting consumer innocence and unrealistic dreams. There has also been a troubling increase in the marketing of supplements that promise instant and effortless physical perfection and immediate weight loss. Magic formulas and miracle products do not exist. PVM Nutritional Sciences will not develop, market or otherwise promote the use of “Quick Fixes”.

To set ourselves apart, at PVM we have codified a set of values and have also unilaterally and unreservedly adopted them. We adhere to this strict Code of Ethics to ensure that we research, develop, produce and market quality nutritional products in a responsible and ethical manner. We will continue to live and enact these values in everything we do.
