Formulating Health Since 1977
Jarrow Formulas® supports scientific research and scientific symposiums. We fund the annual Oxygen Club of California’s “Jarrow Formulas Health Science Prize,” granted to outstanding researchers in biochemistry. We fund research studies on many of our products such as bone formulas (Bone-Up®), Co-Q10 Ubiquinol, lignans, silicon (JarroSil®), pomegranate, probiotics, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and sulforaphane (broccoli seed extract), in order to ensure that customers receive the full biological value of our products.
We are active in monitoring and lobbying governmental regulatory affairs that affect our industry, vigorously promoting the rights of Americans to have free access to dietary supplements. Jarrow Formulas’ customers can be assured of purity, value and potency when choosing from our complete line of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, probiotics, enzymes, herbal extracts, specialty antioxidants, condition specific formulations, and protein blends.
Our History: A Dietary Supplement Pioneer
Jarrow Formulas® was founded in 1977 in Los Angeles by Jarrow L. Rogovin. Jarrow would personally deliver orders of his supplements to the doorsteps of local health food stores. By the 1980s, the small operation had grown into a popular product line that necessitated a need for expansion, and Jarrow expanded his operation by establishing his own health food store on Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA.
Jarrow’s early formulations earned the company a reputation for producing innovative and efficacious supplements at a time when the health benefits of dietary supplements were just beginning to be recognized. Jarrow believed that well-crafted dietary supplement formulations had the potential to be more effective than primitive pharmaceuticals or ineffective vitamin supplements being offered by some at the time.
