Norvia was founded by Dr. Lars Høie MD PhD, Dr.Philos. The company is managed by Norvia’s CEO Christian Larsen. Dr. Høie graduated with an MD from University Aarhus, Denmark, in 1983 and received his PhD in protein and lipid research from Oslo University in 2011. He is currently working on his second PhD in cardiovascular health and how Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCDs) can improve overall physical and mental health. He has spent the past 30 years working in various hospitals across the US and Europe and has published 32 academic articles in highly-respected medical and nutritional journals so far.

Dr Høie and his team have spent years researching plant-based formulas to create a holistic approach to supporting an individual’s nutrition, exercise, and overall mental health. Their formulas fully utilise nature and science to help you live a fitter, healthier, and happier life by assisting with long term weight loss and improving athletic performance. Upon returning to Oslo, Dr Høie co-founded the Centre for Heart Medicine, where he successfully treated hundreds of patients using these natural plant-based formulas.

While Dr Høie’s hugely popular nutritionally-dense shakes are low in calories, they’re also designed to preserve muscle mass and improve energy levels as they contain all essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals your body needs. Various studies have shown that patients using these shakes achieved significant weight loss, normalised their blood sugar, reduced their cholesterol, and dramatically lowered other cardiovascular risk factors.

Norvia currently offers two types of shakes: the VLCD weight loss shake for highly effective and maintainable weight loss and the Active Performance shake to increase muscle mass and athletic ability. Both shakes can replace meals or be taken before, during, or after exercise and contain high levels of soybean protein. These delicious shakes come in two flavours (Ice vanilla and Arctic Chocolate), are entirely plant-based, and contain 25 essential vitamins and minerals, meaning they’re safe to use as meal replacements. Norvia has also developed special programmes depending on an individual’s goals that involve replacing meals and gradually reintroducing regular meals. Their website also provides various recipes, exercises, and ways to increase motivation, concentration, and confidence and reduce anxiety. By following the advice of their qualified nutritionists, trainers, and psychologists, one can truly appreciate the positive and holistic approach offered by Dr Høie and his team.


Dr Lars Høie MD PhD

Dr Lars Høie graduated with an MD from University Aarhus in Denmark in 1983. He was always passionate about studying medicine to improve peoples’ lives due to his family’s history of cardiovascular disease and his own diagnosis of high cholesterol at a very young age. It was only natural that he chose to devote his life to preventing cardiovascular disorders through nutrition and lifestyle changes.

Over the course of his 30 years of research, he came across the incredible benefits of the soybean. After studying Chinese medicine and the efficacy of soybeans for many years throughout Europe and China, he returned to Oslo and co-founded the Centre for Heart Medicine, where he treated hundreds of patients using the ground-breaking natural plant-based formula he had developed. Patients managed to achieve significant weight loss, normalised their blood sugar, reduced their cholesterol, and dramatically lowered other cardiovascular risk factors.
