Dietary supplement bottles had dominated my kitchen counter-tops. I looked at the handful of foul-tasting pills in my hand and almost gagged. I was over it! After years of taking dietary supplements, pill fatigue had set in.
I did some research and found that some people are so turned-off by the thought of swallowing tablets and capsules that they reject dietary supplements completely. They would rather trade their quality of life and quantity of years for freedom from what I was experiencing.
Although I couldn’t imagine going through life under-nourished, I realized that all the pills and capsules were actually diminishing my happiness—the opposite effect of why I was taking them in the first place. We are meant to eat food, not pills.
The simple process of consuming, chewing and swallowing food is hardwired into us as an extremely pleasurable activity. So, shouldn’t we be getting all of our life-sustaining nutrients from food? Of course we should, but that’s easier said than done.
Many of us spend more time in traffic than we do in our kitchens—that’s just life!
My struggle to maintain adequate nutrition went beyond just a long commute. I love to hike, bike, play racquetball and yoga, which doesn’t leave a lot of time to spend in my kitchen. My long-time friend and professional associate, Rick, felt the same, so we partnered to create SoTru.
SoTru is a line of powder-form, plant-based dietary supplements that bridges the gap between dense whole food nutrition and an active lifestyle, without a single compromise.
Seriously… we’ve already picked apart each and every ingredient, so that you don’t have to!
We then took the nutrient density to the next level by fermenting many of our foundational ingredients, which reduces carbohydrate content, unlocks the full potential of cellulose-bound nutrients, further enhances the flavor profiles and nourishes the GI tract with beneficial microorganisms.
We are proud to have created this delicious line of dietary supplements, and we hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!
