Our mission is to help people love how they feel.
As a B Corp, we believe in using business as a force for good, and we were the first supplement company to receive this designation. Founded by Stewart Brown, whose roots (and heart) are in retail, our belief is that the right natural health product can be life-changing.
We are obsessed with science and are always asking ourselves how we can make more innovative natural health products for our consumers. We created the fermented protein category and in 2016 helped over 1.1 million people skip the bloat, and love how they feel by nourishing their gut and maximizing their protein absorption.
The original green superfood – our flagship product, greens+ – will turn 25 years old this year, standing the test of time and still delivering outstanding results to our awesome customers.
And now we’re changing the way that people look at their gut microbiome with our new advanced gut health probiotic. The best is yet to come from Genuine Health!
