Our story begins like so many do – with a personal journey. In 1996, World Nutrition’s founder was seeking relief from joint pain. He was prescribed enzyme therapy and was greatly impressed with its effectiveness in easing his discomfort. Since then, it has been his mission to help others discover the amazing healing benefits of these all-natural proteolytic enzymes.
In 2000, after moving from Japan to the United States, he founded World Nutrition, Inc. in Phoenix, Arizona. With a singular, important objective in mind, he set out to combat a variety of health issues by first addressing the root cause of the problem. During the past decade, World Nutrition has been a pioneer in the systemic enzyme industry. We are a global leader in the manufacture and distribution of supplements and nutritional products for people of all ages and lifestyles.
World Nutrition’s original Vitälzӯm® formula revolutionized the industry and quickly became the most popular vegetarian systemic enzyme supplement in the world. In 2008, we became the first company to formulate an enteric-coated, liquid filled systemic enzyme gel capsule. Today, Vitälzӯm® and Vitälzӯm Xe® liquid gels are still the only enzyme products on the market that boast this unmatched delivery system. Our formula ensures that virtually all of the enzyme activity survives the harsh acids of the stomach on its way to the small intestine where the enzymes are absorbed and then released into the bloodstream to provide you with the systemic enzyme benefits you need.*
Like most successful companies, World Nutrition has gone through a variety of changes over the past decade. We have expanded our product line, enhanced our formulations, and improved upon our already stringent manufacturing standards. One thing has always remained the same: our commitment to our customers. Our mission to provide solutions to improve your health and well-being will always be our number one objective. This vision was born more than a decade ago; it will continue to guide our company into the future, never resting, always striving to care for our customers and their health.
