Initial focus will be to further advance product development in bringing highly effective natural health solutions to market to elevate wellness for those critical health concerns of consumers.

The group will build upon the rich heritage and advanced research and development capabilities of each of the entities to create a new standard in natural health enhancement.

Nature's Way is headquartered in Springville, Utah, and its products are sold throughout leading natural products retailers throughout the United States and in 40 other countries.

Enzymatic Therapy, Inc.'s heritage is rooted in four formerly separate natural medicine companies, each of which was founded over a period from 1975 to 1986, and each of which was merged to create the company as it exists today, by North Castle Partners, LLC in 2000. Enzymatic Therapy products are sold throughout leading natural products retailers, medical clinics, and in 15 countries outside the United States.
