With a team of dedicated experts, we apply current, cutting-edge scientific knowledge and research driven solutions to all aspects of sporting performance and general well-being.
The Platinum and Diamond ranges are comprised of ingredients that are sourced and produced to the highest of standards anywhere in the world. I am proud to say that we’re at the forefront of sports nutrition, and we demand premium quality ingredients in each of our products.
One of our bestselling products is Diamond RnR (Rest & Relaxation), it has become the bestselling natural sleeping aid in Lloyds Pharmacies nationwide.
100% Irish = 100% Quality is the our motto. Platinum & Diamond Nutrition products are developed, manufactured and tested in Ireland. The whey protein in all of our products is derived from grass-fed, free-range cows; making it the best quality whey protein money can buy. Many of our innovative products are pharmaceutical grade quality and all of our products are 100% drug free. This is why Platinum Nutrition has partnered with many high-level athletes, including the All Ireland Hurling Champions of 2017; Galway.
There are many exciting opportunities ahead as we’re currently in discussions with the largest pharmacy chain in the U.K. to start exporting to their 2,500 stores in 2018. I’m also delighted to say that we’ve recently been awarded membership to Guaranteed Irish.
