Our co-founder, Richard, was exposed to healthy eating at an early age thanks to his father. As a child, he had more wheatgrass shots than you could keep track of and sipped on raw juices made for him.
As he departed off to college, Richard experienced the new wonders of college life - lots of food that's not so good for you. And he let down his guard in terms of health and began to gain the infamous freshman 15.
COLLEGE LIFE TAKES A TOLL ON HEALTH
Busy with life as a full-time student and working a job that required late nights (on top of all the homework and studying), Richard knew he had to maintain his health in some way.
What better than grabbing a few bottles of vitamins and supplements from the local store, right?
Not so much.
After several months of supplementing, Richard thought he'd start to feel better and get his weight under control. Sadly, he wasn't feeling any better and he was feeling worse.
HELP! NATUROPATH BOUND
Richard decided to take action and he sought out a local naturopath in West Covina, California to determine what was going on with his health.
After some blood tests and evaluations, Richard's naturopath determined his complications and general health ailments he was experiencing stemmed from the supplements he bought at the local store that he was taking the last several months.
The blood work showed that a high amount of heavy metals were present and that the supplements were the only logical source of his health ailments.
A TURNING POINT
Given Richard's upbringing of living healthy at an early stage in his childhood, he knew he had to do something different with his life going forward. In particular, he knew he had to find a better solution to the supplements he and his future family would be consuming long-term.
These health scares motivated Richard to take the next step in his journey to creating a health & wellness brand that take safety, purity, and the integrity of its ingredients as the number one priority.
