About us


Candidlab creates evidence-based algorithms to rank supplements. The goal is to help consumers figure out which products are good and which are bad according to the latest science. Candidlab has been active in the food supplement industry since 2012 and has been an active part of the debate ever since. Especially due to their lab analysis of dietary food supplements.

Candidlab’s vision is quite simply to make it easy for consumers to navigate the food supplement market and help them find and choose the best products at the best price.
