About NOW Foods
NOW Foods provides a wide variety of quality natural products that are specifically formulated to help support and promote optimal health through good nutrition.
NOW Foods was founded for the purpose of providing affordable natural products to everyone, and they hold true to this principle today. As a chemist, founder Elwood Richard understood the dangers posed by synthetic ingredients decades ago, and he knew that true health and wellness begins with products that are As Natural As Possible. NOW has been manufacturing and distributing natural and nature-identical products since 1968, and steady growth over the past 40 years is an affirmation of Elwood's unwavering dedication to providing natural products that are both affordable and effective.
Natural is Better
NOW Foods was founded on the belief that natural is better. They are committed to sourcing the very best natural ingredients for our products, and we choose non-GMO, non-irradiated, and organic ingredients whenever possible. “Natural” is not an idle word to us. It’s why our business exists and thrives. In addition to their passion for nutritional excellence, NOW supports social and environmental efforts throughout their industry and community. NOW regularly hosts conservation and clean-up events in support of Make a Difference Day and Earth Week; a tradition which goes back over a decade.
