Founder’s Letter

The healthcare environment has evolved dramatically over the past ten years since SourceOne was founded. With the recent passage of healthcare reform legislation, corporate consolidations, and a `get tough` policy at the FDA, healthcare in the U.S. continues to undergo rapid and important change. Consumers and funders of care are demanding more information, greater transparency, and more value for spending. SourceOne’s vision is to be a leading provider of health and wellness solutions created through scientific research and innovative product development that focuses on meeting current and future consumer needs.

As Americans are expected to take charge of their health care decisions, there is a heighten sense of focus on prevention versus treatment. Consumers understand that adopting preventive health care measures not only improves overall health but can drive down costs in the long term. As a result, more consumers, physicians and health care providers are turning to natural products solutions. They demand nutritional supplements and functional foods with higher levels of validated quality, proven supporting science and safety.

SourceOne‘s unwavering commitment to scientific research and consumer education has been a key driver in the advancement of scientific discoveries combined with the development of new, innovative and science-backed products. SourceOne’s global partnerships and network of relationships with people and companies that share its passion and commitment to excellence provide a strong foundation for the company success today and in the future.

Thank you for your continued support and helping us to deliver the best science nature has to offer.

Yours in Health,

Jesse R. Lopez
