At Nutritional Biochemistry, Inc (NBI) we formulate and manufacture products that give you results. Started by a practicing clinician and researcher who couldn’t find formulas he needed to help his patients and family, NBI products solve two problems he was having. Existing products on the market didn’t contain the dose or combination of nutrients used in clinical trials and actually shown to work. Equally frustrating, other companies would cite studies on their websites, but then use lower amounts of nutrients than what was actually used in the study, or use entirely different nutrients that weren’t supported by the research.
NBI was founded in 2006 and we’re proud to be making a difference in people’s lives all over the world. NBI has shipped dietary supplements to more than 15 countries and is a leader in delivering products formulated and manufactured to the highest industry standards.
NBI maintains a database of more than 10,000 medical journal citations and articles that is constantly being updated and expanded. This allows NBI to continue to innovate and create products that do what they say they’ll do. Not because we think they will, but because that’s what independent studies show. That’s the NBI difference and our promise to you.
Unlike other companies, research on nutrients used in some of NBI’s formulas has been evaluated by FDA scientists. The same research used to create powerful dietary supplements was used as the foundation for a spin-off pharmaceutical company, NBI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Started in 2010, NBI Pharmaceuticals is dedicated to creating natural, non-toxic products for rare diseases. NBI Pharmaceuticals submitted research to the FDA and the FDA agreed that the nutrients have the potential to help people. NBI Pharmaceuticals received 15 US FDA Orphan Drug Designations for natural products to potentially treat cancers, neurological disorders and mitochondrial diseases. NBI Pharmaceuticals has scoped out development of its first product, MK4®, for people with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
And while NBI’s products are dietary supplements and not approved by the FDA to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure disease, we’re so convinced that the science supports what we do that we’re proud knowing that the same nutrients submitted by NBI Pharmaceuticals for evaluation by the FDA’s Office of Orphan Products Development (OOPD) are one NBI uses in its dietary supplements. NBI stands 100% behind the quality of our formulations and the science on which they’re based.
NBI is and always has been, a family-owned company. We don’t manufacture anything we wouldn’t take ourselves or give to our own family. No matter what we do, our promise to our customers is uncompromising quality. NBI is a name you can trust. But don’t take our word on it. Spend time on our website, learn about our products and educate yourself on the hundreds of research citations and studies that they’re based on.

At NBI we believe that being involved in the community is important. That’s why we give back to projects that improve the lives of NBI customers and the broader community through volunteer efforts and financial contributions.
National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF)
NBI supports the NOF as a member of its Corporate Advisory Roundtable (CAR). CAR is a high-level corporate advisory body to NOF’s Board of Trustees. As NBI’s representative to the CAR, Dr. Neustadt contributes his integrative medicine expertise to advance the prevention, detection and treatment of osteoporosis and help to develop targeted projects that support NOF’s Mission and patients nationwide.
CNDA Board of Directors
Dr. Neustadt is a member of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association (CNDA) Board of Directors and the Chair of the Membership Committee. The CNDA is the professional membership association representing California’s more than 1000 naturopathic doctors (NDs). The CNDA puts on continuing education conferences and webinars, advocates for access to naturopathic medicine for all Californians and works toward advancing the careers of naturopathic doctors and the profession.
Each year Dr. Neustadt mentors local medical students in their final year of medical school. By meeting with them regularly and discussing clinical, business, and personal development topics that are most important to them, Dr. Neustadt helps them get ready for the next stage in their careers and lives. Dr. Neustadt also gives Grand Rounds talks to medical students on osteoporosis, medical biochemistry in clinical practice, insomnia and entrpreneurship.
About Dr. Neustadt
Dr. John Neustadt has an international reputation as a researcher and integrative medical expert. He became renowned in this field through his clinical work, books, work with the FDA, entrepreneurial ventures, articles for professional journals and the popular press, continuing education lectures to physicians, radio appearances and as a medical expert helping businesses better serve their customers.
In 2005 Dr. Neustadt founded Montana Integrative Medicine (MIM) in Bozeman, Mont. Dr. Neustadt specialized in hard-to-treat, chronic degenerative diseases through an integrative approach that emphasized identifying and treating the underlying causes of disease. Dr. Neustadt and his clinic gained a reputation as the place to go for patients who had been through the conventional medical system but were not getting better, were suffering from side effects of medications or were wanting to find natural strategies to discontinue their drugs.
For his clinical work, Dr. Neustadt was the first naturopathic doctor to be voted Best Doctor among all physicians in his area. When the award was announced, this is what the local newspaper had to say: “It is noteworthy that Dr. Neustadt did not win ‘best naturopathic doctor;’ he won best doctor. Perhaps for his expertise in nutritional biochemistry…Perhaps, it is his intuitive and holistic approach to health care. Perhaps it is for the extra hours he puts in at no charge. But likely it’s the combination of all of these characteristics that set him apart. This is a big day for naturopaths everywhere. Congratulations, Dr. Neustadt.”
His extensive, successful cases of depression, chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome, bipolar disorder, seizures and attention deficit disorder have been featured in books and at continuing medical education conferences.

Dr. Neustadt’s osteoporosis research has been published in Integrative Medicine: A Clinician’s Journal, Bottom Line Personal, Holistic Primary Care and Compendium of Continuing Education for Dentists. Dr. Neustadt was the first Naturopathic Doctor to write a continuing education article for dentists on bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ). BRONJ is a dangerous side effect of the bisphosphonate osteoporosis medications (Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, Zometa) that cause jaw bones to disintegrate. Research now shows that up to 8% of people taking these medications are at risk for BRONJ from something as simple as a tooth extraction.
Dr. Neustadt’s research into mitochondrial damage and molecular pathways of disease was published in the journals Integrative Medicine: A Clinician’s Journal, Molecular Nutrition & Food Research and Experimental and Molecular Pathology. For this work, Dr. Neustadt was recognized by Elsevier, the world’s largest medical publisher, as being one of the Top Ten Cited Authors in the world. This research formed the basis of NBI’s MitoForte formulation.
Dr. Neustadt earned his naturopathic medical degree from Bastyr University where he was awarded the Founder’s Award for academic and clinical excellence.
In 2011, Dr. Neustadt closed his medical clinic and moved with his family back to San Diego, CA. His mom was terminally ill and he wanted to be close to her to help her in the last few years of her life. Dr. Neustadt loves spending time with his wife, business partner and best-selling author, Romi, their two children and dogs.
