Professional Formulas was founded in 1985 by Hugh and Martha Helikson in Portland, OR. The Heliksons had a genuine passion for broadening the acceptance of natural medicines, which they believed were most effective when used under the guidance of a trained Practitioner, whose education, knowledge and experience are invaluable in addressing patient needs. Accordingly, the Heliksons launched Professional Formulas with single purpose: to provide practitioners with the highest quality products designed to promote whole-person wellness, backed with unparalleled service and technical support.
Today, more than a quarter-century later, Professional Formulas is run by a management team that was hand-picked by its founders, whom we acknowledge for their role in our current success. The Heliksons are largely to thank for our incredible product line, our loyal customers and our unwavering philosophies - not to mention the honor of continuing the legacy they built. The Heliksons worked tirelessly and successfully to expand the industry, build the company and instill the values that we hold dear today - values that make Professional Formulas a uniquely important resource for practitioners:
Practitioner FocusedOur products are made available to patients only through healthcare Practitioners, who purchase the products from Professional Formulas. As a result of our steadfast commitment to Practitioners and their essential role in the proper use of our products, Professional Formulas does not sell products directly to patients.
Exceptional Quality and Maximum EffectivenessIn our efforts to ensure quality, GMP compliance is only the beginning. We go to extraordinary lengths to guarantee the quality, consistency and effectiveness of every product. We source the highest quality, natural raw materials - anywhere in the world; process those materials with methods that maximize their purity, energy and/or bioactivity; formulate them into products that contain the right combinations and potencies based on research and our practitioners' clinical experience; and deliver finished products in capsules, liquids, powders or creams that maximize absorption and effectiveness.
Unparalleled Product SelectionWe offer the broadest line of more than 1,000 products, which evolved in direct response to practitioners just like you who are working with the full spectrum of patient issues. Accordingly, we offer incredible depth in each modality: vitamins, minerals, proteins/amino acids, glands and specialty formulas; encapsulated herbs and liquid botanicals; and an unmatched selection of homeopathics including allersodes, nosodes, sarcodes, isodes, emotional formulas, liquescences and a vast array of combination formulas - all hand-succussed in our own FDA-registered laboratory.
