FutureCeuticals Direct Timeline
FutureCeuticals Direct began in 2007 as a way for consumers to purchase our innovative and effective nutritional supplements directly from us, the manufacturer. In 2007, oathealth.com was launched to sell Nutrim®, Optimized Oat βeta Glucans For Lowering Cholesterol. Nutrim®, is our number one selling product. In 2010, fruitex-b.com was launched for FruiteX-B® after a pilot study was released with users reporting 79% increased joint flexibility and 66% greater knee comfort after taking FruiteX-B® for 7 days. In 2011, Ultimate Foods green drink mix and Mighty Crunch healthy freeze-dried fruit snacks were added to the product list. In 2012 we put those products, along with many others, “under one roof” and launched futureceuticalsdirect.com. We anticipate adding new products from among our 50 patented and trademarked products. We also will continue to provide information which supports our customers’ efforts to live a healthier life. As always, we are dedicated to providing our customers with great products and a great customer experience.
