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.

Our Mission

It’s in our DNA to help make the world a better place. 50 years ago, our founders aimed to improve health and wellness by focusing on the basics - complete nutrition through essential nutrients and minerals.
