Garden of life is a company that was founded by Jordan S. Rubin. The story behind why he founded his company is quite a story on its own.
Jordan Rubin was diagnosed at the age of 19 with Crohn’s disease. Now to you who are not sure what it means, Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), it causes inflammation through the digestive tract. People who have it suffer from abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss and even malnutrition. It may in some cases spread deep into the bowl’s tissue causing ulcerative colitis.
As of yet, there is no complete cure for this disease which why it makes this story more interesting about Jordan and Garden of Life.
Jordan himself was at a frightening 104 pounds, on a wheelchair and at life’s risk. Instead of giving up he and his family went on a journey of finding the alternative way to improve his health. After about 70 different treatments to no avail he found his answer in the food he eats. He studied about what foods were eaten during biblical times to maintain health.
His diet was consisted with raw, organically grown whole grains, vegetables, fruits, fermented diary, grass fed beer and poultry. In addition to those he took daily probiotics to maintain balance of organisms (micro flora) in the intestine.
After two years of maintaining and implementing all he learned he was back on his feet with 180 pounds and committed himself to share his knowledge. He wrote 19 books and was on tours around the country and founded the Garden of Life in the year of 2000.
Some of his first products which really kicked off in the market were the HSO (homeostatic soil organisms) which are probiotics with the missing elements to support intestinal health and strengthen the immunity system.
Jordan Rubin found that in the western diet there are two reasons for ill health, toxic environment which cause toxins in the body and the lack of fat-soluble vitamins which are found in good fats and minerals. In his book The Maker’s Diet he recommends foods that are rich in fats so a person who absorbs them gets all the necessary fats that are saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated which are omega 3s and omega 6s. Also he recommends eating fresh and fermented foods to absorb probiotics and enzymes. In the Garden of Life he puts all those vitamins, minerals, probiotics and enzymes to reestablish the gut and providing it with nutrients to the body by.
In the Garden of Life, Jordon has accomplished making the first raw vitamins and minerals which was really a huge step. Not only the ingredients are organic, approved by the USDA, they are also raw which is making them unique. Products like Raw Protein which became number 1 selling protein (out of 29,000), Raw Cleanse, Raw Resveratol etc.
Founding his company was only the first stage, now he is committed for ways to improve what he has and staying ahead in the health industry growing the whole food supplement industry within.
It is amazing how usually great things are growing from some kind of trauma or near death experience if you are willing to take the journey and learn, believe in yourself and know that you can do it. Rubin Jordan took one of those journeys and founded a company to help others to improve their health with amazing products that speak for themselves.
Those products are unique in the industry helping tens of thousands people from kids to adults, products for pregnant women such as Vitamin Code Raw Prenatal Multivitamins, men formula and women formula.
