Adrian Polliak

Vancouver, WA—Bergstrom Nutrition, maker of OptiMSM, has announced Adrian Polliack, Ph.D. as its new president and CEO. The inventor of 11 U.S. patents, Dr. Polliack comes to Bergstrom with 20 years of leadership experience in the manufacturing, bioscience and medical technology fields. In 2015, Polliack worked with Bergstrom Nutrition on their quest to uncover new uses for MSM beyond its more well-known usage in joint health and inflammation, mobility and aging, along with skincare and now a new focus on hair and nail strength.

“Today I’m thrilled at the prospect of embarking upon yet another exploration of OptiMSM’s bright future,” said Polliack in a press release. “Bergstrom Nutrition has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to quality and expanding its usage, in part due to the vast amount of lab and clinical research it undertakes. In 2015, I consulted with Bergstrom on implementing a stage-gate process to begin vetting new product development and claims opportunities. It’s my hope to put that framework to better use so we can offer our customers studies with more defined outcomes and marketable claims.”

Also on the horizon under Polliack’s leadership will be a renewed focus in offering both OptiMSM and PurforMSM® to new international marketplaces, the company says.
