At Vytalogy Wellness, we are committed to producing the highest quality products that support the health and well-being of our consumers. That’s why we’ve convened a Scientific Advisory Board to work with experts across areas such as sleep, micronutrients, energy, and metabolism so that we continue to understand industry standards and innovate new offerings to meet consumer demands for what they need today and what they’ll want tomorrow.
Quality is of the utmost importance as we strive to find ways to improve our vitamins, minerals and supplements and provide new offerings. To ensure the safety and integrity of our products, we implement an extensive quality assurance program with various protocols in place throughout the production process to test our ingredients and ensure our products are safe and comply with FDA rules and regulations.
The Scientific Advisory Board consists of noted individuals and industry experts active in the scientific, clinical, and regulatory communities. The board provides strategic guidance and third-party credibility to support our research, strategies, quality assurance and communication initiatives.
Dr. Helen Burgess is a Professor of Psychiatry and Co-Director of the Sleep and Circadian Research Laboratory at the University of Michigan. Dr. Burgess’s work and research focuses on sleep and circadian rhythm influences, specifically in the assessment and treatment of sleep and circadian disturbances in a variety of human clinical conditions including alcoholism, chronic pain conditions, diabetes, depression, HIV and post-traumatic stress disorder.
At the invitation of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Dr. Burgess assisted in formulating the latest clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders. She has also made multiple presentations at the National Institutes of Health on the topic of sleep and circadian rhythms.
Dr. Burgess received her PhD from the University of Melbourne, Australia, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of South Australia and second fellowship at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
Dr. Michael Grandner is the Director of the Sleep and Health Research Program at the University of Arizona, Associate Director for Behavioral and Translational Science at the Center for Sleep, Circadian and Neuroscience Research and the Director of the Behavioral Sleep and Circadian Medicine Clinic at Banner- University Medical Center in Tucson, AZ. Dr. Grandner is also an Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, Medicine, Nutritional Sciences, and Clinical and Translational Sciences at the University of Arizona.
In his work, Dr. Grandner specializes in transitional sleep research and behavioral sleep medicine, studying the treatment of insufficient sleep and sleep disorders through behavioral and other non-medication interventions including nutritional supplements. Dr. Grandner also focuses on downstream cardiovascular, metabolic, immunologic, cognitive, mental, and behavioral health outcomes associated with sleep as well as upstream social, behavioral, environmental, and biological determinants of sleep and circadian health.
Dr. Grandner received his PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of California San Diego and San Diego State University. He also completed postdoctoral fellowships in behavioral sleep medicine and sleep and circadian neurobiology at the University of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia VA Hospital. He then completed a Masters degree in Translational Research at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
