Vibrant Health designs award-winning superfood supplements that work, and we care about the customer every step of the way. That means careful sourcing and testing of each ingredient, a transparent label policy to ensure our customers know the truth about what’s in the bottle, and compassion for the health and well-being of our customers. We believe you should never have to choose between an effective supplement and one you trust to be completely beneficial for you and your family.
Mark Timon, M.S. in Clinical Nutrition, founded Vibrant Health in 1992, and remains our formulator today. He entered the nutrition industry in 1971, designing over 450 nutritional supplements before founding Vibrant Health. It was Mark’s dedication to and respect for the end consumer that inspired him to create a company with strong guiding principles, including the standard of full disclosure labeling. His product formulations are based on rigorous research and study, and they are known for their balance and efficacy.
The ingredients in our products are ethically and expertly chosen to be of utmost quality, then blended to form supplements at effective, therapeutic doses. The formulation process is never truly finished, as each product evolves with the latest nutritional science. In addition, the source of every ingredient in our products is managed in-house, resulting in an unmatched level of product quality and proper potency.
Vibrant Health has been family owned and operated since Mark Timon formulated the first version of Green Vibrance in 1992. Ted and Paige Parker, who were already employees of Vibrant Health, bought the company in 2007. Today, with headquarters in Shelton, Connecticut, Ted and Paige continue to impart small business values to a steadily growing organization. They foster camaraderie and a strong work ethic among team members in various ways, including regular outings, complementary lunches to celebrate milestones, involvement in local and national charitable initiatives, and, a company favorite, Wellness Wednesdays, when team members enjoy fitness and mindfulness classes, massages, and a healthy catered lunch.
We consider the entire team, including our customers, to be part of our extended Vibrant Health family.
In the world of nutritional supplements, Vitamin Angels, which is now among the 10 Best Humanitarian Relief Organizations according to Charity Navigator. Driven by the fact that malnutrition is the number one cause of preventable child deaths, Vitamin Angels provides nutritional support across the critical window of a child’s development. We work with Vitamin Angels to provide lifesaving vitamins to mothers and children under five at risk of malnutrition — reducing preventable illness, blindness, and death — to create a healthier world. Over the past year, Vitamin Angels has focused on providing quality prenatal multivitamins and nutrition education to women in all 50 states. Last year they reached 161,884 mothers. In addition, Vibrant Health partners with the Autism Hope Alliance, an organization that embodies hope for families facing the diagnosis of Autism through education, financial support and volunteerism. The Autism Hope Alliance is the first non-profit foundation for Autism to emerge from the natural foods industry. Our partnership provides hope and help for autism families today.
Kind to the Planet
We are a very recycling-focused team: the facilities at headquarters in Shelton, CT utilizes a recycled water system; we collect the team’s empty containers for reuse as planters and other fun projects; and we are careful to recycle paper and plastics. In addition, Vibrant Health encourages carpooling to headquarters, incentivizing by reimbursing gas money at a rate depending on the number of commuters involved. At this point, more than half of the employees participate in the carpool incentive program. While all of our team members are involved in keeping our company green-conscious, our Green Team leads the charge by meeting regularly to address ways we can be a more environmentally and globally conscious company—from reusable k-cups and ethically sourced coffee, to monitoring our paper use and starting a community vegetable garden. We think it’s important to stay focused on these issues in every aspect of the work we do.
We recognize the impact our footprint has on the entire community of the world – animals included. In response, we source materials from ethical suppliers, work to minimize the presence of harmful chemicals in our plastics and other materials, and encourage our consumers to recycle our containers once empty. We are currently working on a “return your bottle” campaign, where consumers can return bottles and scoops for points, redeemable for product and other Vibrant Health gear. (These details may change. Stay tuned for this opportunity in 2019!) We understand the magnitude of the pollution problem and how it effects the animals on our planet. On a more local level, our Kind Committee (focused on community outreach) will take on an initiative early in 2019 to collect items for a local animal shelter. As part of that initiative, we will donate products from our pet line, which are designed to help mature pets with digestion, urinary tract, and joint health. By doing our part, however small it may seem, can have a global impact.
Vibrant Health is founded on the concept that food is medicine. Every complex superfood we bring to market, whether in powder, capsule, or tablet form, begins with one question: what’s the most natural, potent and pure source of the needed ingredients? In addition, the closer an ingredient is to its food origin, the more the body will be able to synthesize the nutrients contained within, increasing nutrient density and bioavailability. We use food for ingredients, unless our formulator determines that a component is necessary for maximum effectiveness. We are able to keep tight control on the quality of each ingredient as the source of every ingredient in our products is managed in-house and then delivered to our bottling manufacturer. Mark Timon, M.S. in Clinical Nutrition, founded Vibrant Health in 1992 as a result of his dedication to and respect for the end consumer. Vibrant Health today holds true to Mark’s original vision as a company with strong guiding principles. His product formulations are based on rigorous research and study, and they are known for their balance and efficacy.
