Scientific Advisory Board

Our scientific advisory board guides the scientific direction of Legion.

It’s comprised of researchers, scientists, and thought leaders. Rather than endorsing individual products, they advise our team on product identification and development, relevant clinical studies, and ongoing research.

Scientific Direction

The board advises on improving existing and new formulations, translating published research into potential products, and pursuing new avenues of research.

Product Discovery

Legion’s board members participate in various fields of study, including protein metabolism, muscle hypertrophy, and exercise performance. They also work in a variety of roles such as obesity specialists, nutritionists, clinicians, and scientists, and their expertise and experience allows Legion to research and create superior, scientifically validated products.

Institutional Connections

Our board's relationships with academic institutions like the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the International Sports Sciences Association, and the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition give us access to intellectual property, the opportunity to sponsor clinical trials, and connections to top researchers.

Meet Our Team

Kurtis Frank

Director of Research for Legion
and Co-Founder of

One day, Kurtis Frank became enamored of the idea that "you are what you eat”—that what goes into your body ultimately influences every aspect of who you are and who you will become.

During his undergraduate studies in human nutrition, he co-founded the website to gather and present as much evidence-based information on dietary supplements as possible in as unbiased a manner as possible.

To that end, Kurtis worked tirelessly for seven years to make Examine the premier resource on the Internet for learning about the science of supplementation. Today, it boasts guides on over 500 supplements containing over 41,000 scientific citations.

Kurtis then joined our team here at Legion to take an active role in managing our scientific advisory board, creating new and improving existing formulations, writing informative articles on our blog, and generally guiding the scientific direction of the company.

We’re thrilled to have Kurtis on board because we couldn’t be in better hands. He understands supplementation on a level that most scientists never will, let alone formulators, and strives to not only push the envelope of what can be achieved with supplementation, but to also raise the bar of safety, ethics, and cost efficiency.

Dr. Spencer Nadolsky

Board Certified Family Medicine Physician
and a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine

Dr. Nadolsky's love for using lifestyle as medicine arose out of a passion for sports, where he used exercise and nutrition science to become the heavyweight wrestling champion at UNC Chapel Hill.

During medical school, Dr. Nadolsky attended multiple obesity medicine conferences and realized that the same exercise and nutrition principles used for improving sports performance could also be used by the general public to combat obesity, diabetes, and other lifestyle diseases.

To further hone his skills, Dr. Nadolsky attended VCU’s Riverside Family Medicine Residency in Newport News, Virginia. He is the author of The Fat Loss Prescription, and now practices medicine online via SteadyMD, a pioneering new system for delivering remote medical care.

Try Us Risk-Free with Our 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee



Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.


Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion, we hate profits so our shipping is 100% free!

Okay, we do dig on profits, but we also do offer 100% free shipping to everywhere in the world because it makes people you like happy, and that makes us happy.

So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $99.

Why the restriction on international orders?

Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.

Our scientific review board of nutritionists, dietitians, molecular biologists, doctors, and other accredited experts is responsible for reviewing every article, podcast, and video we produce to ensure they’re evidence based, accurate, trustworthy, and current.

Thanks to their connections, credentials, and academic experience, this team of MDs, PhDs, and other professionals has access to a wealth of research published in the largest and most prestigious journals in the world.

This allows them to not only review individual studies but also analyze the overall weight of the evidence on any and all topics related to diet, exercise, supplementation, and more.
