November 16, 2022 3 min read

     When you reach for that bottle of vitamin C or fish oil pills, you might wonder how well they’ll work and if they’re safe. People take these supplements to make sure they get enough essential nutrients and to maintain or improve their health. But not everyone needs to take supplements.

    Here with us today is Biochemist, Dietitian and Formulator, Author of The ENERGY Formula, and Founding Partner of Ingenious Ingredient LP., Shawn Wells. We talk about his book, what the acronym ENERGY stands for, and how it can help you become more productive daily. He also shares his recommendations for the best supplement and routines that can help you feel better each day and also betters your overall health.

    Shawn Wells, MPH, LDN, RD, CISSN, FISSN, is a product formulator and expert in the fields of performance nutrition, longevity, fitness, and supplementation. He earned his master’s degree from UNC-Chapel Hill, where he studied nutritional biochemistry with a minor in exercise science. Shawn is a Registered Dietitian with a decade of experience as a Chief Clinical Dietitian in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. He is also a Certified Sports Nutritionist and has worked with celebrity clients and professional athletes.

    On the road to being dubbed “The World’s Greatest Formulator”, Biohacktivitst, and Keto Authority, Shawn faced and overcame significant obstacles with his own health—weight issues, depression, autoimmune conditions (Epstein-Barr, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), two cervical discs replacements, and a pituitary adenoma, which is a type of brain tumor. They say everything happens for a reason, and in Shawn’s case, his health problems led him down a winding path that required him to find science-based solutions, and they sparked his personal passion for biohacking.

    In the supplement industry, Shawn has held the titles of Director of Research and Development for Dymatize Nutrition® and Chief Scientific Officer for BioTrust Nutrition®. In addition to these appointments, Shawn is a co-founder of the popular patented ingredients TeaCrine® and Dynamine®, which are featured or used in over 300 products worldwide. He also has worked on patents on exogenous ketones, glucose tolerance agents, and more as the founding partner of the World’s Greatest Ingredients, LLC, alongside a team of PhDs and scientists.

    Shawn also is the CEO of Zone Halo Research, a consulting group for supplement formulations, sourcing, manufacturing, marketing, and regulatory/compliance work.

    Shawn proudly serves on the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (JISSN) editorial board, and he has co-written a chapter on creatine in the most recent ISSN textbook Sports Nutrition and Performance Enhancing Supplements. He was also named to the prestigious ISSN advisory board, as well as having received the honor of being named Fellow of the ISSN.
