Schaeffer Nutraceuticals uses Nobel Prize-winning biotechnology research to produce diet supplements that tower above the rest — Viproactive® brand of products. Their goal is simple — to enhance customers’ diets so they achieve the best energy levels, health, well-being and productivity possible.
Vitaprotein® is the product of over 20 years of molecular biological research spearheaded by Dr. Günter Blobel. Blobel is the esteemed German scientist and Nobel Prize awardee who developed Signal Theory, a remarkable discovery that singlehandedly revolutionized our modern understanding of how proteins are transported and assimilated throughout the body.
Under the Vitaprotein umbrella are individual products that focus on specific health needs — which we collectively call our Viproactive line.
Vitaprotein supplements are the only line of nutritional products to use a biologically modified active carrier protein. Taking advantage of the so-called “post-code phenomenon” from Blobel’s research, Vitaprotein supplements are absorbed better by the body, making it the only brand of supplements in the world clinically proven to have double the effectiveness than your run-of-the-mill brands currently on the shelves.
Vitaprotein is the active ingredient of the Viproactive line of dietary supplements, manufactured and sold from Germany. Schaeffer Nutraceuticals, the people behind this revolutionary line of products, have long entered into their growth-phase through the constant demand of their supplements, both locally and online.
Schaeffer Nutraceuticals is committed to providing customers with the world’s best diet supplements, delivered to where they are needed in the body in the fastest and most efficient way possible.
Following the success of their first campaign, Schaeffer Nutraceuticals decided to join hands with TFGcrowd once again to help them fund the next phase. For those unaware, their initial campaign was fully funded at 110% or 110’870€ of their original 100’000€ funding goal – with 94 backers.
