The creation of Laboratoire NUTERGIA by Claude Lagarde stems from two fundamental roots: respect for the needs of the individual and protection of the environment. These two values have continued to apply for over 25 years now.
Respect for the individual and for personal well-being
Inspired by the work of Catherine Kousmine, the pioneer of micronutrition, Claude Lagarde, a Doctor of Pharmacy and biologist, creates the Active Cellular Nutrition® concept, or ACN, which places the cell "at the centre of optimum health"*.
To optimise cellular function through the intake of high-quality micronutrients in the right doses, the essential preconditions for daily well-being and vitality.
To provide lifestyle advice and personal solutions for nutritional rebalancing. Because everyone is unique. To fulfil individual needs.

Protection of the environment
Sustainable development, and especially the preservation of natural resources, has been central to our priorities since the company was founded.
This firm commitment is reflected in all of the company's activities (design, production, sales & distribution, advisory and training services provided for health professionals) via a social responsibility charter translated by continuous efforts to minimise the environmental impact of our activities.
Here are a few examples:
100% of our electricity requirements are covered by a special EDF 'Equilibre' contract exclusively based on renewable energy;
Active participation by all personnel in waste sorting for the recycling of plastics, paper, batteries, printer cartridges, IT equipment, telephones, etc.
Bottles for liquids are made from 100% recycled and recyclable plastics;
Elimination of unnecessary packaging in order to reduce waste and subscription to the eco-packaging programme www.ecoemballages.fr;
Training provided in eco-driving, encouragement given to travel by train, adopt car-sharing, use hybrid vehicles, etc.
Since 2012, this commitment has been recognised through ISO 14001 certification.
