Hi, I am Michael, one of the co-founders of Your Super.
Growing up as an athlete, and playing tennis at the professional level, I felt invincible! That changed when I was diagnosed with cancer at age 24. While recovering and trying to rebuild my immune system, I learned how important it is to fuel your body with a whole food diet. My co-founder Kristel, would share her homemade mixes of superfood powders. While taking them, I felt energized, happier and increasingly aware. The more I researched, the more shocked I became to learn of my athletic-diet’s effect on the body, and how these nutrient-rich superfoods had been used by indigenous cultures for thousands of years. Why didn’t more people know about this? I made it my personal mission to educate and inspire people to fuel their body with the best natural whole foods. Good nutrition, and information should be available for everybody!
Hi, I’m Kristel, the other co-founder of Your Super.
I too grew up playing tennis at the professional level. Michael and I met on the court! We were young, healthy and happy until Michael’s cancer diagnosis. It reminded me of when I was 12 and the same thing had happened to my mom. Determined to stay positive, I bought all of these loose bags of maca, wheatgrass, barley grass, chia seeds, spirulina, lucuma, flax seeds, you name it! My cabinets were chaotic, as my aunt Ellen, an orthonutritionst advised me on what vitamins and minerals the body needs on a daily basis, and what it needs to heal.
I created 7 unique mixes, specific to a health benefit. My family, friends, and Michael tested the blends in their breakfast. The nutrient-dense superfood combinations were an EASY way to start the day SUPER. My allergies and eczema began to clear up. Everyone who took these mixes, began to look and feel better. Michael and I knew we needed to share these superfoods and information with the world! Nothing makes me more excited than sharing that healthy living is not that complicated (and that small changes make all the difference)!
