Helping people get better
There’s power in preventionAs allopathic practitioners provide vital care to patients with immediate needs, Fullscript supports practitioners focusing on prevention and the connected, underlying causes of a patient’s symptoms. Thousands of integrative and functional health professionals are pushing for a shift to a more proactive perspective on lifestyle, patient care, and all of medicine.
We believe wellness works best with a practitionerThese practitioners are on a mission to provide lifelong care that helps people discover and rediscover wellness for the rest of their lives. It’s Fullscript’s mission to support them — to help people get better. From practitioners to patients, partners, and colleagues, we build frictionless technology and personalized experiences to support those on their wellness journeys, whatever that means to them.
This has never been just about supplements
Fullscript evolved when two organizations disconnected by geography but connected by wellness came together to become healthcare’s leading supplement dispensing platform and patient adherence tool.
Completing the merger
Operating since June 2018 as Natural Partners Fullscript (NPFS), leadership finished what it started by merging Natural Partners and Fullscript into a single brand. Under the banner of Fullscript, both teams bid farewell to the Natural Partners website and name and welcomed a new (yet familiar) identity. It was a thoughtful shift, based on research, feedback from users, and innovative technology to facilitate a seamless transition for practitioners and patients.

Launching One Platform
In 2020, nearly two years of hard work came together when an improved version of Natural Partners’ wholesale ordering folded into the Fullscript platform. This new functionality gave practitioners access to a bigger catalog and the industry’s best product search. From this dedication to supporting practitioners, came the only supplement dispensing solution (still) to offer both wholesale ordering and virtual dispensing on one platform.
“I have recently begun using Fullscript wholesale and find it simple and efficient. My practice offers both virtual and in-office dispensing and we, therefore, appreciate the simplicity of using the same platform for both.”
In August of 2020, the organization proudly became certified carbon-neutral, neutralizing its carbon footprint from January 1st, 2020 onwards. It was a monumental moment for the company — but only the first step in improving the health of the planet and as a result, the health of all people.
“Environmental conditions are critical to a holistic approach to wellness. Climate change threatens key determinants of health such as clean air to breathe, safe drinking water, and access to quality food. Carbon-neutrality is an excellent example of proactive measures to ensure the health of our planet, and by extension, the health of our people.”
$25M in Series B Funding
In 2019, Fullscript (then Natural Partners Fullscript) earned $25M in Series B Funding from Kayne Partners, the growth equity group of Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P. With new funding came new growth — growth that has scaled and accelerated the platform to supporting practitioners at the point of care and beyond.
“This funding will do so much more than help our company grow. With this kind of capital, I truly believe our team is capable of changing the way healthcare is prescribed, and even more importantly, helping people get better, whatever that means to them.”
Merging with Natural Partners
Beginning in 1995, Natural Partners grew from a regional supplement supplier with a handful of brands to a national player carrying hundreds of products, serving doctors in every US state. In 2018, leaders of Natural Partners and Fullscript realized that they shared the same vision for healthcare. Merging to become Natural Partners Fullscript (NPFS), the two companies renewed their vision to change the world of integrative and functional health with future plans to unite its brand and platform.
“This has never been just about supplements. It has always been about the evolution of medicine. It has always been about helping practitioners provide better care, and most importantly, helping patients commit to wellness.”
Fullscript is born
Dr. Alanna Dyment, ND, was setting up her own naturopathic clinic. She was in debt and wrestling with the hassle that came along with stocking and managing a supplement dispensary. She mentioned to her husband, Brad Dyment, that she wanted to spend less time managing her business and more time treating patients. Brad and his business partner, Kyle Braatz, had been looking for a new idea — one that would tackle a problem they could spend the rest of their careers solving. They decided integrative practitioners needed an easier way to dispense wellness and patients needed an easier way to access integrative care. They soon partnered with a third co-founder, Chris Wise, and shortly thereafter, the first online supplement dispensing platform was born.
