Stay on the cutting edge of nutrition and supplement research
You know how critical nutrition is for health — you literally are what you eat. But who has time to process thousands of new papers each month?
We do. Since 2011, our team of science nerds has been analyzing nutrition and supplement studies to find out what works and what doesn’t.
We did the research — now use it!
Your Examine Membership unlocks:
No to industry ties, yes to meticulous analysis
Thousands of nutrition and supplement trials are conducted each year. Misinformation easily creeps in, from oversimplified media reports to flawed studies. Study details are locked away in undecipherable journal articles.
We cut through all that with our no-nonsense analysis on both big topics and individual studies. Plus, all Examine researchers are contractually required to have zero industry ties, to stay as unbiased as possible.
Personalized updates: Pick your categories, get dozens of study summaries each month
Using a personalized dashboard, Examine members select any or all of 25 health categories they want to keep up to date on. They can easily save summaries and share them with others.
Personalization is important because everyone’s unique. You might be chronically low on sleep, while your dad has diabetes, and your kid struggles with acne. Make sure not to miss out on the latest findings for topics you care about.
Healthier you: Knowledge truly is half the battle
Your body is amazingly complex. To tackle your health goals optimally, you’d need to have a dozen different graduate degrees and spend all your time reading studies.
Which precisely describes Examine. We’re a dedicated team of nerds who analyze studies all day. Our researchers have graduate degrees in nutrition, medicine, biochemistry, public health, pharmacology, toxicology, biophysics, and more.

Who is Examine? And why should you trust us?
We know how frustrating health issues can be to have and to research, so we try to be as straightforward as possible. We offer an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee.
So if you're not satisfied for any reason within that period, simply contact us and we'll send you a prompt refund, no questions asked.
In a word: no. In fact, the Membership's entire purpose is to save you time!
Doing health research takes time, whether you're looking to improve your own health or doing research for family or friends. And how can you decipher whether a study is good or bad, if you don't have the time or expertise to sort through details from p-values to per-protocol analyes to Bonferroni corrections? Even if you're familiar with those terms, you know how long it takes to extract those details from studies.
With the Examine Membership, you pick the exact health categories you're interested in and get easy-to-read summaries of the most important evidence. That means more signal, less noise, and less time!
You probably want to stay current on the research in your field, to be most helpful to patients and clients.
Unfortunately, no one person has the time or expertise to analyze the thousands of nutrition studies published each month.
Our team is equipped for the job. Examine has been at this since 2011, and we collectively have degrees in nutrition, medicine, exercise science, public health, pharmacology, toxicology, biophysics, neuroscience, and more. Between us, we can analyze any nutrition study. If we need further help, we bring in outside experts.
With your Examine Membership, you’ll not only benefit your clients but also find it easier to generate content for talks, articles, newsletters, and social media. Our own team members were surprised by how much they learned by sifting through all that data for you!
No. Though health professionals use their membership to stay on top of the research in their fields, our service was designed from the get-go to also serve the needs of anyone with their own health goals. We use clear organization and simple yet precise language to make the information accessible without watering it down excessively.
Even if you’re not a health professional, you likely have friends and family that rely on you for health advice. With your membership, you can keep up to date on nutrition and supplementation research, and if you read dubious claims online, you’ll likely have recent evidence in mind (or at hand, at least) to clear the fog for everyone.
We mostly focus on nutrition and supplementation trials in humans — the more rigorous the data, the more attention we place on the study.
However, we also sometimes report on other subject areas, since we're all too aware that nutrition and supplementation aren't the only facets of health you should know about.
For example, we cover trials on different types of meditation, studies on various aspects of COVID-19, comparisons of different exercise protocols, and a range of "outside the box" therapies for various health conditions.
I turn to Examine for quick, reliable data on a whole host of health topics. It's rare to find such guidance that is meticulously researched yet easy-to-digest, but Examine manages to deliver on both. I strongly recommend it as a trusted resource.

Examine is my new favourite go-to for current research. Instead of spending my time on the tedious and time-consuming task of finding and reviewing abstracts, Examine is tailored to my specific interests and delivers just what I need to know – the key takeaways from the latest research. The brief summaries invaluable; they are clearly written, concise, and help me stay up to date with the research that is most relevant and important to me.
Gillian Mandich PhD | Health Science researcher
When I was a grad student, it was easy for me
to keep up with the latest research in exercise, nutrition, and supplementation. Of
course, staying current was essential to my development as a scientist, writer, and
coach. Nowadays, though, with the epic rate of research output in our field PLUS
everything going on in my life (i.e., parent of four young children, founder of two
businesses, author, competitive athlete) staying up to date feels
That’s why I subscribe to Examine. Every month the Examine team pores over the latest publications to find, and summarize, the research I most want to know about. All that for just a few bucks. If you work in health and fitness, you won’t find a better cost-to-value ratio anywhere.
John Berardi PhD, CSCS | Co-founder Precision Nutrition | Advisor to Apple, Nike, Equinox, and Titleist
Examine’s updates help me to stay on top of current research on supplements and diet trends. Their in-depth summaries are a great way to get “the lay of the land” quickly and efficiently.

I tend be really busy these days which makes
it really challenging to keep up with the latest research. If you know science, you know
that reading and evaluating research is not as simple as reading an abstract. There is a
great deal of nuance involved. Put more succinctly, I just don't have the time to do it
So, what do I do? I use Examine. It consists of great summaries I can trust. It is invaluable for people like me who have a strong desire to keep up with science, but not a great deal of time to give it the proper study!
