Who we are

We passionately believe in good nutrition and the healing and restorative power of food, clean ingredients and incorporating the very best that nutritional science has to offer.


Suitable for the whole family, Dr Phil’s products are whole-food based which means all ingredients are obtained from whole food sources with no addition of synthetic vitamins, fillers, additives, sugar, artificial sweetener or preservatives.  


Where we can we source organic Australian grown ingredients and each batch is tested to ensure it contains the optimum blend of essentials nutrients.


They can be safely taken while on medication or during pregnancy as all ingredients are naturally food derived. All our powders are compatible so they can be mixed together if several formulations are required and are quick and easy to prepare.
