The Journey Is the Reward
XYMOGEN Exclusive Professional Formulas has over a quarter century of experience providing quality supplements to healthcare practitioners. As an independent health sciences company, XYMOGEN has introduced numerous innovations to the functional medicine community. From the beginning, "the journey is the reward" has been our mantra. It is a journey that offers unprecedented opportunities for growth and fulfillment.
XYMOGEN’s Core Principle: People-First
XYMOGEN is proud of our "People-First" culture. We can only achieve continued success and growth by staying tenaciously committed to these five principles:
- Creating a dynamic, open corporate environment that encourages a team approach to problem solving, new product development and industry first initiatives.

- Providing resources, education and training for team members to maximize their highest potential so that they may move up in our company and find career satisfaction.
- Encouraging fitness, health and to make time for play by offering team members access to our 24/7, no-fee exercise facilities, which includes a basketball/volleyball court as well as a fitness center with treadmills and weights.
- Attracting the most talented, fun and motivated people from many different backgrounds to our winning team through a variety of avenues, including relationship building with the scores of professionals who have maximized their health through our formulas and our already established team of diverse and deeply devoted team members.
Generating Higher Value
Dear XYMOGEN Partner,
XYMOGEN’s growth and success are a testament to the people, philosophy and culture that continue to make this journey we call XYMOGEN so exciting. We are committed long-term to all team members, customers and investors who have contributed and continue to contribute to our success.
What distinguishes XYMOGEN from other nutraceutical companies is our creativity. We are a very creative organization, and we strive to use our creativity in everything we do. I believe that the best way to predict the future is to create it, and our creativity helps us stay ahead of the competition and remain the premier source of nutritional products in the practitioner channel.
As a result of our creative efforts, we have seen overwhelming success in our international expansion and also with our digital printing company, XYMOPrint. We also plan to introduce and expand numerous innovations in the coming year, including Private Label NOW, our streamlined labeling and warehousing program, and MedPax, our science-based approach to personalized nutrition that allows practitioners and patients to create unique, daily supplement packets, designed to replace the patients’ many formula bottles, in addition to numerous other additions and revisions to enhance our formula line.
I am excited to announce the completion of the move of our logistics, fulfillment and finished goods departments next door to our beautiful, newly painted 117,000-square-foot expansion facility. Of course, growth means more equipment. Soon, we will be adding a vacuum conveyor machine, as well as a blister pack machine and single-serve packet machine, with the latter two having cartoning capabilities. These new machines will directly affect turnaround times and packaging efficiency, resulting in happier customers.
Naturally, XYMOGEN aims to serve our customers’ health needs, but we are also dedicated to helping the environment. Our continued partnership with the United Nations CleanSeas initiative means we are always looking for ways to decrease our use of plastic. The single-serve packet machine is one way we hope to accomplish this. Replacing high-density polyethylene (HDPE) rigid plastic tubs with thin-film dose packs packaged in paper cartons will help XYMOGEN use approximately 40% less plastic in its packaging. Keeping in line with plastic reduction, the new Condition-Specific MedPax formulas in convenient, on-the-go packets have received a great deal of interest from practitioners for innovation and increased patient compliance.
On behalf of our ever growing XYMOGEN TEAM, I wish you all the best for a healthy, happy and prosperous journey with us.
Brian J. Blackburn, CEO
- CleanSeas: XYMOGEN is one of the first corporations to pledge its support to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) CleanSeas initiative, and is the only nutraceutical company to do so. CleanSeas, which was launched in February of 2017, aims to target the causes of marine litter by limiting the production and consumption of non-recoverable and single-use plastic such as bottles, bags, and straws. The initiative encourages government, corporate, and community involvement to achieve this goal. To this end, XYMOGEN is curtailing its use of plastics by moving from plastic bottles to thin-film dose packs, which are packaged in paper cartons. The same is true for its large, plastic tubs that contain powders, such as the FIT Food and OptiCleanse family of formulas. In place of these, patients may choose to receive their formulas in perfectly portioned thin-plastic serving packets, which also use considerably less plastic.
- Quarterly Pipeline Launches: XYMOGEN's continued growth and success allows us to keep expanding and improving our line of formulas in order to meet patients’ health needs. Our quarterly releases of innovative formulas reflect the latest scientific findings in the field of nutritional science as well as feedback from our Medical Board of Advisors and XYMOGEN practitioners worldwide.
- International Growth: XYMOGEN continues to see new opportunities to address the ever-expanding need for natural health solutions by distributing its top-of-the-line formulas across the global market. The goal is to ensure XYMOGEN products are supplied to every distributor that recognizes the benefits of providing these innovative formulas to consumers, and has a desire to help people achieve a healthier lifestyle. XYMOGEN is currently distributing in Canada (where XYMOGEN maintains its own sales force and fulfillment center), South Korea, South Africa, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Indonesia, Peru, Ecuador, Vietnam, and Ukraine – and is looking to develop markets in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and throughout Europe. These future ventures can only be realized through strong partnerships with potential distributors who share XYMOGEN’s vision.
- ePedigree Verification: XYMOGEN provides products only to licensed healthcare practitioners and their authorized patients. Products sold through discount Internet websites are strictly prohibited. These suppliers are not approved distributors, and XYMOGEN cannot guarantee the authenticity, potency or efficacy of products purchased through such sites. The main goal of our ePedigree initiative is to protect consumers from receiving unauthentic XYMOGEN products from unauthorized Internet sources by creating an electronic record which tracks our products as they move from the manufacturing floor to the customer. With ePedigree, we are eliminating all Internet sales of XYMOGEN-labeled formulas, resulting in XYMOGEN being the only truly exclusive source of proprietary supplements in the practitioner channel.
- MedPax® Personalized Medicine: XYMOGEN’s exclusive, professional formulas are precisely calculated to restore nutritional depletions based on the patient’s unique lifestyle, diet or drug therapies, and timed to support optimum effectiveness. Beginning with a thorough evaluation of a patient’s medical history, our proprietary system develops a detailed, individualized report from which formula recommendations are derived, and then combines the formulas into convenient AM/PM dose packs for a personal nutritional supplement kit. With our three-step approach – exact formula, exact dosing, and exact timing – we take the guesswork out of choosing and using dietary supplements to support the goal of optimal health.
- PharmaceutiX® Medical Foods: The rising demand for natural health products has created great potential to introduce new formulas onto the market. As a company that is looking to grow and expand, the possibilities for XYMOGEN are endless, as we strive to develop formulas that can help an even larger base of the patient population. Medical foods are defined by the FDA as foods specifically formulated to provide nutrients for the management of a disease for which there is a recognized nutrient dysfunction or deficiency component. Medical foods must be used under the care and oversight of a physician, and they must meet the FDA’s rigorous safety requirements.
- Private Label Program: Using this powerful tool, doctors and practitioners everywhere are seeing results, attributed to having personal and customized labels, doctor reference sheets and booklets for their favorite XYMOGEN formulas.
- Custom Manufacturing: This option allows our customers to develop their own formulas, including ingredients and amounts, while XYMOGEN seeks out the very best raw materials and offers a choice of delivery methods, coating, packaging and labeling. These formulas are manufactured in XYMOGEN’s state-of-the-art facility to ensure the customer’s creation is exactly as they imagined it, if not better.
- Contract Manufacturing: Based on the extraordinary growth of both XYMOGEN’s infrastructure and team, we are now well-positioned to fulfill orders in Contract Manufacturing, our fastest growth division. XYMOGEN has also received commitments from three of its European Biotech partners to become the exclusive manufacturer for a series of patented and proprietary ingredients.
- XYMOPrint™: An expert in the creation of digital print products. Providing label and print services for XYMOGEN®, MedPax®, PharmaceutiX®, private label, and custom and contract manufacturing customers, XYMOPrint also partners with brands and industries around the world to design and manufacture labels with an unbeatable quality and value.
