With a passion for healthy living and a strong desire to enhance their lives, three moms set out to create a company that would focus on what they knew to be tremendously important to everyone…health!
While researching their new venture, the ladies soon discovered how most people are completely overwhelmed when visiting a nutrition store. They knew there had to be a better way to get quality nutritional supplements with functionality geared towards a specific health goal. Armed with this knowledge, the culmination of their educations, and strong business acumen, the three decided to create and market their own family of distinctive nutritional products – products that would indeed enhance the lives of family, friends, and themselves. Early in 2009, with the enduring support of their families, Impact Nutritionals, Inc. was born and the group was off to the lab.
From the beginning the team knew that “all natural” would be their mantra. With the help of acclaimed biochemists and medical professionals they began working on their new products. After many months in the GMP Certified lab and countless modifications, the team completed the first S7™ product – the perfect and first of its kind, the all-in-one S7™ Prenatal Vitamin drink mix. The maiden product, S7™ Prenatal, set the bar high, as it met their goal of being great tasting, convenient, unique, easy on the stomach, and most importantly, it worked. Moms everywhere cheered because they no longer need to take a handful of hard to swallow pills daily.
S7™ Prenatal Vitamin Drink features the super seven pregnancy nutrients folic acid, iron, DHA, calcium, ginger (for nausea), choline, and electrolytes (to help maintain hydration), plus additional ingredients to support a healthy pregnancy. Typically, a woman would have to take a handful of pills to get all of these nutrients, but S7™ Prenatal combines these into one easy to swallow and tasty drink.
S7™ Prenatal Vitamin Drink is only the first in the family of S7™ products. Impact Nutritionals, Inc. is an imaginative, trend forward, and nutrition minded company dedicated to creating exceptional products designed to meet the nutritional needs of today’s on the go families.
