"We are incredibly proud to join the rarified air of being named to the Inc. 5000 list for the ninth consecutive year, which is a true reflection of our team's hard work, dedication, and mission to make lives better," said Joel Kocher, CEO at Humann.

Humann ranks No. 3482 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The Inc. 5000 list, published annually by Inc. magazine, showcases the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. This recognition is a testament to Humann’s unwavering commitment to innovation, product efficacy backed by science, and customer satisfaction.
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with its requirement of fast growth—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
Since Humann’s founding in 2010, the company has delivered 500 million servings of heart healthy energy and blood pressure support. The company also fosters research, collaboration, and innovation within the functional health and wellness community through its Scientific Advisory Board which includes some of the top scientists in cardiovascular health, including Nobel Laureate Dr. Ferid Murad, MD, PhD.
“The mission of Humann is what drew us together,” said Dr. John Ivy, PhD and President of Humann’s Scientific Advisory Board. “The company wants to change lives, and no one knew what nitric oxide did until Humann invested in the research and brought its cardiovascular health benefits to market. I am proud to be part of an organization that lets the science speak for itself.”
