Scientific Expertise. Specific know how.

All ALP NUTRITION® products have been developed under the scientific management of Dr. Oliver Schnorr. Dr. Schnorr led a group of scientists at the University of Duesseldorf, Germany, who have been interested in the effects of micronutrients in the human body and in particular, in inflammatory processes. He is author of numerous scientific peer-reviewed articles, published in international journals (see selected list) and had numerous lectures on international conferences. Additionally, he graduaded in „sports nutrition“, a postgraduate programm organized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 2010.

This program was initiated by the IOC to qualify international experts in sports nutrition. The graduates of this world wide unique programm consult and take care of national teams, olympic team members and elite class athletes in the field of nutrition, as this parameter is important and performance determing to them. Actually, he supports and consults Betty Heidler, world championship winner in female hammer throw, to achieve optimal regeneration and best performance and results in her preperation fort he European Athletic Championship in Amsterdam and the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in summer 2016.
