The development of Vitalogic
The university professor Dr. Jürgen Spona, together with his wife Dr. Ingrid Spona, MD, founded the company in 1997. It is based on the highly-individual supplementary preparation, Vitalogic, developed by the leading expert in amino acid research.
The product was then, as now, based on a simple blood test – the Amino acids-Needs-Check – individually prepared for the requirements of individuals. Because no person is like another.
