The Whole Food Story

Did you know 10% of Americans have a qualified nutrient deficiency1?

The nature of food and how we obtain it has changed so much in the last 50 years that it’s becoming more and more challenging to get all the vitamins and minerals we need from our diet. Americans are simply not consuming enough of the right foods to get the nutrients they need to maintain optimal health. And when it comes down to it, even the healthiest diets have nutritional gaps.

We make supplements to help you fill those gaps in the right way—thanks to nutrients delivered with real food.

In fact, we use more than 500,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables every year! Once these foods arrive from our Farm Fresh Partners, they undergo our Slo-Food Process, and are then combined with vitamins to deliver guaranteed potency and the benefit of health-promoting compounds present in the whole food itself. They can be taken at any time of the day, even on an empty stomach.

And our new gummy vitamins provide no exception. Enjoy!
