Bringing the gift of health to life
In 1971, Pharmavite was founded in Los Angeles, California with the belief that there had to be a better way to being healthy than relying on prescriptions.
It’s in our DNA to help make the world a better place. Nearly 50 years ago, our founders aimed to improve health and wellness by focusing on the basics - complete nutrition through essential nutrients and minerals. Since that day, we’ve been a leader in the health and wellness industry and have earned the trust of consumers, healthcare professionals, and retailers alike.
To bring the gift of health to life.
- Energy & vitality fuel the pursuit of happiness.
- Our world of plenty is creating a poverty of health.
- That good health should be within reach for all.
- In the power of complete nutrition, not quick fixes.
- You can’t have trust without truth.
- Do the right thing.
- Care deeply and do something.
- Run it like you own it.
- Discover, learn, and apply.
