NOW is still family owned as it has been from the beginning. El Richard started the company in 1968 and the entire family has contributed to the success of NOW.


In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty-five years, they have made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. 


Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while they have grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – their commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

NOW Foods

NOW Sunflower Lecithin

NOW Sunflower Lecithin has Phosphatidyl Choline, the most abundant phospholipid in the cell membrane, where it plays a key role in cellular signaling and synaptic function. NOW Sunflower Lecithin also naturally abounds in Phosphatidyl Inositol, Phosphatidyl Ethanolamine, and essential fatty acids. Lecithin in the diet aids in emulsyfying fats, enabling them to be dispersed in water; and as a choline-containing phospholipid, its choline is easily absorbed and utilized by the body. NOW Sunflower Lecithin Softgels are Non-GMO and Soy-Free.


NOW D-Mannose Powder

D-Mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in some plants, including cranberries. Although small amounts of D-Mannose are metabolized by the human body, much of it is rapidly excreted in the urine. In the bladder, D-Mannose can adhere to undesirable foreign substances, preventing them from sticking to the lining of the bladder. Because insubstantial amounts of D-Mannose are used by the body, it does not interfere with blood sugar regulation.

NOW Ultra OMEGA-3

The Natural Fish Oil Concentrate used in this softgel is manufactured under strict quality control standards.  It is tested to be free of potentially harmful levels of contaminants (i.e. mercury, heavy metals, PCB's, dioxins, and other contaminants).  Those who experience nausea or reflux from other fish oils should find this enteric coated, odor controlled softgel easier to tolerate.

Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

NOW Shark Cartilage

Shark Cartilage is an excellent source of Calcium and also has naturally occurring Mucopolysaccharides, including an especially bioavailable form of Chondroitin Sulfate. Scientific studies indicate that certain constituents of Shark Cartilage may help to support a balanced immune system response. In addition, Shark Cartilage helps to promote skeletal health by virtue of its high Calcium content. NOW Shark Cartilage is derived from pure freeze dried backbone of sharks and is thoroughly tested for important shark components and contains no solvents, bleaches or chemical processing agents. The sharks harvested are also used for food purposes.


NOW Glucosamine & Chondroitin

Glucosamine & Chondroitin are naturally occurring structural components that have recently enjoyed growing popularity. Glucosamine is an amino sugar derived from the chitin of shellfish and is used by the body to support healthy joint structures. Chondroitin complements Glucosamine and works synergistically to provide optimal nutritional support.

NOW L-Lysine

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that it cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation. Lysine is necessary for the production of all protein in the body including hormones, enzymes, and antibodies, as well as carnitine and collagen, which is the structural protein forming all connective tissue such as skin, tendon, and bone. L-Lysine also plays a major role in calcium absorption. Some evidence suggests that L-Lysine supplementation may help to support a healthy immune system as well as proper cardiovascular function.









NOW Tri-Chromium

Chromium is an essential trace mineral that works with insulin to support healthy blood glucose levels already within the normal range and plays an important role in the proper utilization of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Cinnamon has been used throughout history by herbalists to promote healthy digestion and metabolism.

NOW C-1000

Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system. Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and is therefore important for skin, bone and joint health. Vitamin C is needed for amino acid metabolism and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. It is also a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen molecules generated during normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors. This product includes Bioflavonoids, which work synergistically to support Vitamin C utilization.

Now Red Mineral Algae

Aquamin is a blend of mineral derived from red algae harvested off the coasts of Ireland and Iceland.  Aquamin is an abundant vegetarian source of bioavailable Calcium and Magnesium and has over 70 other important trace minerals.  Research indicates that this multi-mineral complex may support proper bone mineralization and helps to regulate key factors involved in the normal immune system response to typical joint usage.  Clinical studies demonstrate that Aquamin can help to support joint comfort and mobility.  A vegetarian-sourced Vitamin D is added to this formula to further support bone health.

NOW Brain-B12

Vitamin B-12 is a water soluble vitamin necessary for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and for the metabolic utilization of fats and proteins. B-12 is also essential for the synthesis of DNA during cell division and therefore is especially important for rapidly multiplying cells, such as blood cells. In addition, adequate intake of Vitamin B-12, along with Folic Acid and Vitamin B-6, encourages healthy serum homocysteine levels, thereby supporting cardiovascular health.



NOW L-OptiZinc

L-OptiZinc is a form of Zinc complexed with the amino acid Methionine. Research has demonstrated this product to be better absorbed and retained longer compared to several other forms of Zinc tested. This is in a highly bioavailable form that supports Enzyme function.


NOW Selenium

Selenium is an essential trace mineral and functions as part of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione perioxidase.  It is bonded to the essential sulfur amino acid, methionine, in a naturally occuring form as found in the diet.  Selenium is found most abundantly in Brazil Nuts, organ meats, seafood, and wheat germ.

NOW Vitamin D-3

NOW Vitamin D-1000 softgels supply recommended levels of this key vitamin in a highly-absorbable liquid softgel form.  Vitamin D is normally obtained from the diet or produced by the skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun.  However, it is not abundant in food.  As more people avoid sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply.




NOW Vitamin K-2.

Although Vitamin K is best known for its role in normal blood clotting function, recent research has revealed Vitamin K's beneficial effects on bone and cardiovascular health. In bone tissue, Vitamin K is critical for the formation of healthy, strong bone matrix. In fact, bone quality is dependent on the presence of adequate Vitamin K. Vitamin K's role in arterial health revolves around its ability to support proper calcium metabolism in vascular structures.  Vitamin K2 is the most biologically active form of vitamin K. It is also the most beneficial for bone integrity, as well as for the support of arterial health. This product also includes the addition of Alfalfa which is typically known to be a rich source of natural Vitamin K.



NOW Whey Protein

NOW Certified Organic Whey Protein is a natural whey protein that is concentrated from organic milk, which was produced without the use of synthetic growth hormones (rBGH), antibiotics, or pesticides.  It is processed by low temperature ultrafiltration to limit denaturation of the proteins, and is both bioavailable and easily digested. Whey protein has a high concentration of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's), which are important for efficient muscle metabolism.  These qualities make NOW Certified Organic Whey Protein an ideal supplement for active individuals seeking the most natural and wholesome milk protein for themselves and their families.
