Great Nutrition Begins with Superfoods

Genesis Today is a progressive nutrition company specializing in superfoods—exceptional plants and fruits packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential nutrients that support overall health and wellbeing. Combining scientific research and nutritional expertise with a passion for helping others, we offer nutritional supplements and juices made from real foods your body can absorb.

Our team of experts travel to exotic places around the world where indigenous people have used superfoods for generations and still receive nutritional benefits from them today. We then work alongside these cultures, respecting and honoring their traditions and harvesting techniques to retain these foods in their whole, natural state. Finally, we prepare our supplements and juices with high quality processes to preserve the nutrients and deliver great products for your optimum health. That’s the Genesis Today way.

Genesis Today’s mission is to make people’s lives better every day by providing them with traditionally-harvested, nutrient-rich superfoods to support their health and wellbeing.

Sourcing

At Genesis Today, we believe that the true benefits of superfoods come from the native environments that have sustained them for thousands or even millions of years. That’s why we get our superfoods directly from the source—from the cloud-capped mountains of India to the lush jungles of Southeast Asia and beyond.

We also choose ingredients harvested using traditional methods passed down for generations, like climbing palms to pick açaí berries and sending them downriver by canoe in South America or purchasing goji berries gathered by hand from local farms in Asia.

Sustainability

Our focus on quality and sourcing are not the only things that make Genesis Today different. We are also a sustainable business, following environmentally-friendly practices and supporting sustainable lifestyles for the indigenous people who work hard to share their treasures with us. We believe in supporting the health and wellbeing of not just our consumers, but of all the individuals and families who help us create our exceptional products and deliver them to you.

Community

Genesis Today always seeks to share good health and nutrition with our community and support organizations that are helping to improve people’s health and wellbeing around the world. Genesis Today has donated food items to dozens of food banks across the nation and is a proud contributor to the following organizations.
