Who We Are

What We Do

Brightseed enables a healthier future by illuminating and activating the connections between plants and people. Despite centuries of wisdom proving the critical role plants play in supporting our health, the majority of small molecules in the plant kingdom, also known as phytonutrients, remain a mystery. Forager® is the first and only artificial intelligence designed to explore the plant kingdom at the molecular level to map the hidden world of phytonutrients and make new, powerful discoveries for human health.


Brightseed’s Forager® artificial intelligence is exploring the dark matter of the plant kingdom and revealing the most powerful compounds found in nature.


Phytonutrients support human health with anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, cardioprotective, neuroprotective, and other therapeutic activities.
