In 1999, the Vitamin Packs team had a vision that the Internet could change the way we approach health and wellness. At the time, Google had not yet become mainstream, AOL was the only way to connect to the internet for most, and Amazon was only selling books. eCommerce was a scary new frontier. Still, we saw an opportunity to build healthier lives. Our vision led us to build one of the successful early-stage Internet companies. Our idea was so successful that we were asked to customize our Vitamin Advisor technology for several brands. Several years later, we went on to successfully sell this business, and this new partnership expanded Vitamin Advisor to a much broader audience. As a brand, the success continues today.
In 2016, our founders saw an even bigger opportunity to evolve our Vitamin Advisor technology, making it even more personal and science-based. We reconnected and invited top-rated doctors, nutritionists, retailers, and technologists to help us create the next generation Vitamin Advisor. The new Vitamin Advisor leverages the latest clinical research to evaluate your individual lifestyle habits, health conditions, and prescription medications to target the best possible combination of supplements just for you.
We understand that making good nutritional choices can be confusing and difficult. Vitamin Packs simplifies and demystifies supplements, helping you optimize performance, reduce your risk for serious health problems, and age well, so you feel your best, every day.
Starved for Health
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most people are not getting the minimum recommended amounts of essential vitamins and minerals in their diets. Why?
Our reliance on processed foods, which are typically less nutritious than their fresh counterparts – and full of empty calories from additives like sodium, saturated fat, and high-fructose corn syrup. It’s difficult to get all the nutrients you need each day, even in health-conscious diet plans. In fact, a recent analysis of 70 diets discovered they fell 40% short of recommended daily allowances of vitamins and minerals.
Modern agriculture has led to fruits, vegetables and livestock that contain less vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients than the foods of past generations. For example, over the last century, mineral levels have dropped up to 300% in popular vegetables like lettuce, tomatoes, and spinach.
Personalize Your Plan
In the world of supplements, there is no one-size-fits-all. Age, gender, lifestyle habits, health conditions, medications, and more can affect vitamin and mineral needs. Retail stores – physical and online – are overrun with brands competing for your attention and business. Our goal is to take the confusion out of identifying which supplements to take, and to promote your personal healthy lifestyle.
The science behind Vitamin Packs starts with the advice of our Medical and Science Advisory Board. Our Medical and Science Advisory Board is comprised of renowned practicing physicians and a registered dietician. Together, they have over 100 years of experience working with patients in major hospitals and in medical practices focused on healthy living.
In addition to evidence-based nutritional recommendations, we have established guidelines for quality control. All of our supplements meet Food and Drug Administration (FDA) general manufacturing practice requirements to make sure you get accurate intake levels and consistent purity.
