About Perfect Origins
Based in Carmel, Indiana, the company’s history begins in 2013, with its founding by a chiropractic physician, a wellness practitioner, and an advanced nutritionist. Their goal was to develop a line of quality dietary supplements based on natural ingredients and certified scientific methods, to help people achieve and maintain a good state of health.
Currently, the company supplies nutritional supplements and bed sheets. According to the Better Business Bureau, the organization has an A+ rating, with predominantly positive customer reviews. So far, they have 8 closed complaints, most of which refer to billing and warranty issues.
Perfect Origins have expanded their product range over the last few years, currently offering a collection of 7 dietary supplements that claim to tackle common health issues, such as liver health, weight loss, body detoxification, or digestive system problems. They also offer some very expensive bed sheets, as well as a Whole Body Vibration Therapy system. We’ll cover each product in the lines to come.
The company claims that each of their products undergoes a meticulous certification process, including tests for purity. They send all their product batches to a third party laboratory to test their potency and purity. Until not long ago, all of these tests took place in-house. In order to boost credibility, many competing manufacturers test their products, or claim to do so, in independent facilities.
Perfect Origins Products and Ingredients
The official store divides products into 3 major categories: overall health, fat burning, and body cleansing. The manufacturer promises to use only the best quality, clinically tested ingredients. However, none of their products have been evaluated by the FDA, and the disclaimer states they are not intended to treat or prevent any diseases. This situation is common to most nutritional supplements on the market.
Here is a list of the company’s products and their main ingredients:
- LivLean Formula #1 – Considered Perfect Origins’ flagship product, LivLean claims to provide liver detoxification, also restoring normal blood sugar levels.

Dubbed as their “best selling product”, the Perfect Origins bed sheet claims to promote healthy blood circulation, reduce chronic pain, boost muscle recovery, regulate body temperature, and provide a restful sleep. This product is available in both King and Queen sizes, as well as a variety of colors (ivory, green, blue or white). The complete list of minerals is undisclosed. The manufacturer claims the sheets contain a blend of 13 thermo-reactive minerals called Celliant, which interact with the body and create a “responsive textile”. Among other elements, Celliant seems to contain titanium dioxide, silicon dioxide, and aluminum oxide. The sheet itself is made from 35% polyester and 65% cotton. Even though it is machine washable, the manufacturer claims the mineral blend never washes out.
- Live Vibe – The Live Vibe machine provides Whole Body Vibration Therapy which, according to Perfect Origins’ website, brings numerous health benefits. Discovered in Russia during the 60s, WBV Therapy is said to detoxify the body, remove waste, promote weight loss, strengthen muscles, decrease pain and inflammation, improve bone density, and induce a healthy posture.

The up-down motion measures 4 mm peak-to-peak, generating 0.2 – 0.3 G force (depending on the user’s weight). Live Vibe supports up to 300 lbs of weight.

The Bottom Line about Perfect Origins
The company has taken the time to present relevant and detailed information about each of their products, including scientific sources about every ingredient used. As you already know, many ingredients are clinically proven to provide health benefits (such as fish oil, Magnesium, probiotic strains etc).
Similar to most, if not all supplements on the market, Perfect Origins’ products are not FDA approved. The manufacturer acknowledges this and warns buyers that their products do not aim to treat or prevent any diseases.
Recent studies conducted by The Guardian and Consumer Reports show that products such as LivLean Formula #1 do not work as advertised and proclaim detoxification a mere myth. However, other products on offer (such as IsoMagnesium, Perfect Biotics or Perfect Omega TG) contain ingredients that are clinically deemed as efficient, and they could provide real health benefits.
A major drawback concerning all the reviewed products is the high price. Numerous similar, over-the-counter dietary supplements are available for much less. It is up to you to decide if the products’ ratings, the company’s reputation, and their transparency regarding the products on offer are enough to cover for the price difference and convince you to stick to Perfect Origins.
