Our Story

Here’s the problem.

On the surface, eating right is confusing. This report says one thing; that one says another. There’s also the flavor of the month. Eat potatoes for 30 days. Only eat in the morning. You can lose weight by just eating meat. It’s easy to see why people don’t stay with healthy eating. 

The plain facts are that we have a nutritional crisis. Obesity rates are off the charts. Blood pressure is through the roof. Diabetes is epidemic. We’re eating ourselves to death.

Hi. My name is Steven Abbey. Like you, I’ve had my share of diet related health challenges: psoriasis, weight issues, blood sugar, low energy…

That’s why over 20 years ago, I started digging a little deeper, researching health and healing. I found that common ailments like heart disease, diabetes and autoimmune issues can be prevented or even potentially treated with a whole foods diet loaded with superfoods rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals. This is scientific fact. It’s not up for debate.

But, I was shocked.

Even the “healthy” supplements, what were supposed to be the cure, were part of the problem. Cheap synthetic nutrients. Inexpensive fillers. It’s just about the Benjamin's. Make it cheap. Sell it high. Repeat.

That’s why I started Science of Supplements (S.O.S.) in 2018. I wanted to bring the science of whole foods to supplements. No fillers. No fake flavors. No this. No that. 100% transparency. 0% BS. Everything is on the label, including my reputation.

Our nutritional crisis has a known, scientific cure. It’s whole foods. The hurdle is convenience. We haven’t had whole foods - real whole foods - in a convenient form, until now.

I don’t want to spend all day going to 4 or 5 Farmer’s Markets, and then spend hours prepping and cooking the food. My physical, mental, and psychological/spiritual health are my most important assets, but I want more.

I want my time back. I want time to work and play, create, go mountain biking, hang with friends, and enjoy the beauty of life. Eating a 100% whole food supplement is the only solution.

I’m not going to lie to you, health is a long-term commitment. It takes months, not days. Your health is worth it. Your life is worth it.

I'm on a mission to cure our nutritional crisis. Please join me.
