Quicksilver Scientific provide a range of products and protocols that have been designed to unburden the customer from toxins and aid them in transforming their health. The company innovates through modern science giving definition and direction to elements of natural health products that were simply empirical previously.

Quicksilver’s Founder and CEO, Dr Christopher Shade

Quicksilver’s Founder and CEO, Dr Christopher Shade (pictured), began his career in sustainability – including organic and biodynamic farming. He furthered his understanding of the environment’s role in our health through his work with the Rodale Institute. He observed a depleted food system and saw supplements as a necessary addition to a healthy diet. Today, he and his team continue to develop products that boost the power of nature through science, helping people on their journey to optimal health. “Quicksilver products offer high bioavailability made possible by our proprietary delivery system that facilitates absorption of vitamins and supplements into the bloodstream.” – Dr Chris Shade.

Quicksilver Delivery Systems® improves upon basic liposomal delivery technology with smaller, more stable, tightly distributed single-layer spheres (20-70nm) made from the highest-grade ingredients available. This nanoparticle delivery technology to enhance bioavailability and absorption of ingredients has been patented by the company. Although it is not manufacturing drugs, Quicksilver Scientific says it “uses the same high-tech equipment, rigorous processes, and tight particle size controls used by pharmaceutical companies. The swallowed vesicles have a higher uptake in the stomach and gastrointestinal tract as well. For compounds like curcumin and resveratrol it is a 25-to-300-fold increase in bioavailability. For the NAD+ supplement, the uptake is about four to four-and-a-half fold, meaning that taking 100 milligrams in this way is like taking 400 milligrams; for such an expensive supplement, this is good thing”.

NAD+ Platinum™ launched in September 2020 and is now one of Quicksilver Scientific’s flagship longevity products. Patent applications for this specific product are being prepared and Quicksilver Scientific have developed proprietary ratios of NAD+ precursors, to sirtuins activators and to methylation factors. The company continues to conduct product research through collaborations with George Washington University, Colorado State University and the Cleveland Clinic. The company has experienced steady growth in revenue since the launch of NAD+ Platinum™ and has successfully sold this product through both high-end retailers in Southern California and through its Amazon store front.

Recently, Quicksilver partnered with Life Extension Europe, who now promote and sell Quicksilver Scientific products on its website. As a cGMP-certified facility, Quicksilver Scientific health supplements are manufactured according to cGMP regulations and strict quality-control guidelines. These FDA guidelines are the standard in ensuring that products are designed, monitored and controlled at every stage of the manufacturing process. An important mandate of the company is full transparency with its customers. All batches produced undergo third-party testing to ensure that the safety, quality and potency of products uphold the high standards set by the company. Tests include certificates of analysis, potency tests, microbial tests, heavy metals tests, pesticide residue tests, particle sizing tests and ingredient identity tests.
