What items do you sell?
We manufacture health supplements that focus on digestion, joint health, weight loss, anti-aging and overall longevity. Our products are usually referred to as lifestyle health supplements and are enjoyed by people in America, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Where do you sell them?
We currently distribute our exclusive health supplement products within doctor’s offices, magazines, smaller specialized shops, retail stores and various online shopping venues.
Some of our customers buy in bulk while others have us drop ship products directly to their customers saving them upfront costs. We also list our products on the Amazon Marketplace to create more brand awareness.
