In early 2009 180 Nutrition was born, an online health and wellness business conceived in Sydney by two friends out of frustration with an unhealthy and confused nation. Confused with mainstream nutritional advice that didn't seem to work, and unhealthy from the highly processed 'healthy foods' that were part of the problem.
Our journey began working with a small charity that were helping people with chronic diseases. A team of 'renegade' health professionals that had decided to join forces and use whole food nutrition and weight bearing exercises as their prescribed therapy. The results were staggering and it quickly highlighted how powerful food and exercise can be if prescribed correctly. We were tasked with helping them with their supplementation where we quickly discovered a roadblock ...
- Trying to provide a protein supplement to help with their recovery after exercise was near impossible. Most high street options were full of chemicals, artificial flavourings and sweeteners.
- Misinformation about what to eat for better health was endless. Mainstream advice was based on old and flawed science and wasn't working. As a confused nation we simply didn't know what to eat.
What if everything we knew about food and exercise was wrong? Something had to change ...
- To make whole food health supplements: Deliciously raw, pure, healthy foods, with no hidden chemicals or artificial ingredients of any kind. Supplements that everyone could enjoy that would help to deeply nourish our body every day.
- To provide the best available health information: To connect with the world's best experts in health and nutrition via podcasting. To challenge conventional thinking and share discoveries along the way through an online community.
