About the Author
Author, educator, and biochemist, Lyle MacWilliam is the Founder of NutriSearch Corporation, a Canadian-based research house serving the needs of the Natural Health Product industry and health-conscious consumers throughout the global marketplace.
A scientific consultant for the development of safe and effective nutritional products and a public advocate for the betterment of manufacturing practices in the industry, Mr. MacWilliam s early scientific research on the biological effects of antioxidants provided a sound basis for his later regulatory work within the Natural Health Products field. After several years in public office as a Member of British Columbia s Legislature and Canada s Federal Parliament, Mr. MacWilliam also served at the behest of Canada s former Minister of Health as a contributing member of an expert advisory team charged with designing an innovative framework to ensure Canadians access to safe, effective, and high-quality Natural Health Products. In addition, he consulted with Health Canada, Environment Canada, Human Resources Development Canada, and the British Columbia Science Council. He has frequently engaged his services as a scientific consultant for nutritional manufacturers in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Mexico.
An educator at heart, Mr. MacWilliam was a contributory writer for Life Extension Foundation, a US-based non-profit agency dedicated to the science of optimal health and longevity. His creative works now in print for almost two decades include the Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements™, the Comparative Guide to Children s Nutritionals, the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements™, the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements for Australia and New Zealand™, and the current NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements for the Americas™, available in English, French, Spanish, and Chinese. The guides have been used the world over by leading manufacturers, healthcare professionals, educational institutes, and consumers alike.
An accomplished martial artist with a lifetime passion for optimal health and fitness, MacWilliam s written works hit hard at today s lifestyles and diets and the failure of our modern healthcare system to embrace more natural ways of treatment/cure. A sought-after speaker on the importance of lifestyle, diet, and sensible supplementation, his scientifically rigorous, no nonsense delivery served up with a robust sense of humour has earned him international praise as an important voice for preventive health.
