“We believe in nutritional products that actually deliver what they promise. Labels that tell the whole truth. Only products based on clinical science.”
Why another supplement company?
At 18, I was hospitalized after 28 days of inability to digest any food, and nearly starving to death. This was due to my own misguided actions.
I grew up very active and athletic, but was also self-consciously skinny. So, following the lead of some weightlifting buddies, I piled on heavy protein along with the lifting: Up to five pounds of cottage cheese, one or more gallons of milk, and mounds of meat daily. This heavy diet left no room for fiber foods, like fruits and vegetables.
Ultimately, I suffered severe intestinal issues, including a hole in my colon and the inability to eat anything and keep it in. After 28 days of the inability to digest anything, including liquids beside water, and 35 pounds of weight loss, I checked into UCLA emergency and was immediately put on IV.
From this experience, I developed a lifelong passion for the science behind prime health, wellness, and fitness. This ultimately led me to what is the most exciting frontier in nutritional science of the past decade: the body’s microbiome—i.e., your gut.
I learned that so many processes of the body, from immunity, sleep, mood, weight control, cardiovascular and blood sugar level health were directly or indirectly a result of processes in the digestive tract. Encouraged by my partner Evelyn Wang, this became our focus and vision behind the founding of Doctors Pick.
Collaborating with a senior doctor friend, and then a small team of scientists specializing in food and nutritional supplement probiotics, we created our first products, which are our popular probiotics.
Our goal was simple: To make the best of the best in clinical science backed probiotic supplements. This means producing our products to be better than anything else comparable on the market, and at an affordable price.
Today, the results of this long journey are what we believe to be the finest multi-strain probiotic formulas on the market: our Broad Pro Daily Probiotic and Fem Pro Women’s Probiotic.
