People often ask what makes us different. The simple answer is; Science. But there’s also a lot more that makes us the most respected supplement brand and why over 2 million people have trusted us with the care of their horses or dogs.
Here’s what makes us different……..
Where it all began
The very first Science Supplements® products were the brainchild of Dr David Marlin, a scientist with 25 years’ experience in the horse industry who has worked with the FEI, IOC and as a consultant to the British Equestrian Teams since 1994.
Author of books and over 200 scientific papers, Dr Marlin developed these products to fulfil the need of his professional clients for quality supplements, containing high grade, clinically proven ingredients that work.
From 2003 – 2012 the range of supplements were only available to professional riders, trainers, producers, yards and studs in racing, polo, endurance, showjumping, eventing and dressage, plus to the wider equestrian community in the United States in partnership with Purina Animal Nutrition.
2014 saw the launch of the products in the UK, the introduction of our own fully certified UFAS approved manufacturing facility and further export to other parts of the world.

Our ethos is to only produce products with demonstrated efficacy that address real problems and which have been proven to work through laboratory, clinical and field trials.
Equally important to us are safety, quality, palatability and consistency.
We are also able to provide an unrivalled level of support on our product range because we believe in giving the right advice, for the right reasons, to get the best results for your horse or dog, supported by respected industry scientists, veterinary practitioners and experts in exercise, physiology and nutrition.
To date, we have over 18 research papers on our products including published, peer reviewed papers in scientific journals. No other company invests in such robust research and we are proud to be the industry leaders. We have over 10 Equine Degrees, two Veterinary Surgeons and two PhD's all working tirelessly to support the health and welfare of your horses. We have worked with The Animal Health Trust, Hartpury College, University of Edinburgh, Oklahoma State University and numerous Veterinary practices throughout the world to bring you the latest research and products available.
More and more customers demand to see the research behind products and rightly so. There are far too many supplements claiming to be the next miracle cure without any evidence and as a company we believe in complete transparency. We declare all the active ingredients in our products and are more than happy to compare any product. In fact, we guarantee that any of our products will deliver the highest levels of active ingredients compared to any other brand. No ifs, buts or maybes, just science, research and fact.
Unlike 20 years ago, we have more and more research into equine and canine nutrition and today it is inexcusable not to formulate products without the correct levels of active ingredients. Horses are over five times the size of humans. Put simply, using human levels of ingredients for an equine supplement is like feeding humans a portion suitable for a mouse!
