NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Athletic Greens, the pioneer in foundational nutrition, announced that Dr. Peter Attia has been named Scientific Advisor to the company. Dr. Attia, who received his medical training at Stanford University, the Johns Hopkins Hospital and National Institute of Health, is a physician in private practice at Early Medical focused on the applied science of longevity, the extension of human life and well-being. Attia is also host of the podcast, The Peter Attia Drive Podcast.
"Longevity is predicated on five pillars, of which nutrition is an important one. The challenge is that it can be very difficult for people to get adequate and appropriate nutrition day in and day out. Therefore, having a foundational program like AG1 makes it easier to go on autopilot and get the important, essential nutrients that we want and need access to," said Dr. Attia. "I take a scoop of AG1 every day, regardless of what else I'm eating. I just know if I'm taking AG1, I'm getting exactly, if not probably a little bit more, than what I need. I look forward to partnering with them to help people live healthier and longer lives."
As Athletic Greens continues to develop foundational nutrition solutions and focus on research to enhance its flagship product, AG1, Dr. Attia will assist with the company’s efforts around research related to health, diet, longevity, neurobiology and consumer behavior, assisting in new and existing product development, iteration and testing, and advising on emerging consumer trends and scientific research.
“Having the incredible expertise of medical leaders like Dr. Peter Attia is essential to our approach of continuous improvement, and allows us to incorporate leading scientific thinking into our product development, customer experience and innovation approach,” said Athletic Greens Founder and CEO, Chris Ashenden. “With Peter’s guidance, we will continue to lean into research and development on the science of longevity and health span, and work to deliver the power of foundational nutrition, through products like AG1, as effectively and simply as possible.”
