Foundational Nutrition

Our science-driven approach to supporting whole body health

Call it a paradigm shift

As science evolves, so does our approach to nutrition

For years, nutrition focused solely on macronutrients (carbs, fats, and proteins) and micronutrients, largely ignoring metabolic, gut, stress, and immune issues.

But, emerging research now shows our bodies need more for physical and mental health. We need a solution that reconsiders the types of nutrients considered foundational and how they work together. AG1 is leading the Foundational Nutrition movement, providing that solution in one simple, daily, drinkable habit.*

The building blocks of Foundational Nutrition

Micronutrients

Micronutrients, from vitamins and minerals, energize and support the cells of the brain, gut, and immune systems.*

Phytonutrients

Phytonutrients, found in whole foods, help balance the body and maintain key processes between all of our health systems.*

Synbiotics

Pre and probiotics, known as synbiotics, optimize the gut to unlock nutrient access and enhance absorption.*

Nutritional science for whole body health

Foundational Nutrition supplements raise our baseline health by comprehensively nourishing the whole body, from our brain to our gut to our immune system. Signs of good health like energy, focus, strength, and clarity are a reflection of adequate nutrition daily.*

The brain and nerves make up one of the most nutritionally demanding systems in the body. It is the control center for almost every function we have — physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Benefits supported*

Concentration & mental performance
Balanced mood & stress recovery

Nutrients

B vitamins
Antioxidants
Phospholipids

An integral system that regulates how our body receives nutrition and gets rid of metabolized food. It is home to the gut microbiome, an ecosystem of microbes that connects with our body, helping to transform nutrients into compounds we can use.

Benefits supported*

Healthy gut lining
Less gas & bloating
Regular bowel movements

Nutrients

Prebiotics
Probiotics
Digestive enzymes

Digestive system

A nutritionally sensitive system in the body that is constantly adapting to change. We have over 50 types of hormones in our body, each playing a specific role in how we function. Nutrients play a key role in how we produce and break down hormones.

Benefits supported*

Balanced mood
Stress recovery

Nutrients

Minerals like zinc and selenium
Adaptogens
B vitamins

Hormone and stress system

An intricate network of cells that protect and maintain our health when exposed to environmental stress. It is heavily influenced by our lifestyle and connected to every other system in our body, primarily the gut.

Benefits supported*

Immune defense
Healthy immune response

Nutrients

Zinc
Antioxidants like citrus bioflavonoids
Vitamin C & E

Immune system

A microsystem inside of our cells that turns nutrients into energy and regulates the chemical processes in our entire body. This impacts our nutritional status and informs the rate at which we age, especially in metabolically active areas of the body like our brain, skin, and hair.

Benefits supported*

Healthy aging & longevity
Energy & alertness

Nutrients

Alpha lipoic acid
Antioxidants
Superfoods like spirulina

Metabolic system

The delivery system of the body, responsible for pumping oxygen, nutrients, hormones, and more throughout the circulatory network. This is how nutrients travel to key areas like our brain and muscles.

Benefits supported*

Healthy circulation
Nutrient replenishment
Physical & mental performance

Nutrients

Coq10
Vitamin K2
Vitamin E

Cardiovascular system

Going beyond food for optimal health

The need for Foundational Nutrition supplements

To support our baseline, we have essential needs like nutrient replenishment, stress management, gut optimization, and immune support. While some micronutrients can be obtained through diet alone, optimal health requires more. For a strong health foundation, a diverse set of phytonutrients and gut support - both of which are hard to get in the standard diet - are key.*

AG1 is the ultimate Foundational Nutrition supplement that provides all three at adequate levels, closing the gap between surviving and thriving.

One scoop. Once a day.

“I have taken AG1 daily since 2012. It makes it easy for me to get a wide array of high-quality vitamins, minerals, probiotics, fiber, and adaptogens, and it tastes great. When I take it, I notice that I have more energy and my digestion is better. Put simply, AG1 is foundational to my nutrition and my overall health.*”

“Everyone has certain foundational nutrients they need to function at their best. I love that AG1 provides these in just one scoop. From micronutrients to phytonutrients to pre-and probiotics, it gives me peace of mind that my bases are covered and nutritional gaps, filled. As a former all in one supplement skeptic, I am thoroughly impressed with and highly recommend AG1.”

I’ve always had a hard time choosing the right multivitamin and having to take pills. AG1 has been a godsend for me. My gut feels better, I feel more awake during the day and feel overall healthier and less sluggish.*

I feel so much better since I ditched my daily multivitamin and switched. I have energy. My stomach isn’t grumbling anymore. It gets delivered every month. It really couldn’t be any easier.

I have been using AG1 for at least 5 years. It’s much better than taking a multivitamin and it’s got a surprisingly good taste. It’s not bad at all. Their customer service is also some of the best I have ever experienced.

FAQs

Did AG1 start the Foundational Nutrition category?

The concept of Foundational Nutrition was first introduced decades ago with the multivitamin: a simple solution to covering the nutrient gaps in your diet. But science has evolved significantly since then, and everything we know about the body says a multivitamin alone is not enough to empower whole body health.* AG1 is an easy, drinkable daily habit that supports brain, gut, and immune health. In a convenient powder form, AG1 combines vitamins, minerals, stress adaptogens, pre- and probiotics, antioxidants, superfoods, functional mushrooms, and digestive support, that all work together in synergy to empower your body’s health systems.*

If I’m taking AG1, do I still need other supplements?
