For those new to our company we would like to welcome you to
R-Garden and tell you about our history and mission.
For more than 39 years, our family, the co-founders of R-Garden,
have shared a mutual passion for better health for our families, customers, and
ourselves. We have always endeavored to eat as naturally as possible, growing
our own food and taking supplements to give us an extra boost. For twenty
years, we operated nine health food stores in the Pacific Northwest, seeking to
stay on the cutting edge of the latest nutritional advances and sharing with
others our vision of how to attain and maintain good health.
In 1990, we discovered a line of plant enzyme products that were
then only available through doctors. As we began to take these enzyme
supplements, our ability to digest and assimilate food was greatly enhanced. We
immediately noticed profound improvements in our health. Although we had been
eating the best foods and supplements for years, we lacked the proper enzymes
to fully digest and assimilate the nutrients from our food.
We felt it was tragic that these wonderful products weren't
readily available to the public. So, from this desire to help people improve
their health came the idea to form a company that could market these
health-enhancing products to the general public. And, over the past 20
years, the company has grown from a single product to a full range of excellent
life changing products. Our philosophy from the beginning has been to only
offer products made from the highest quality ingredients to ensure our
customers receive the maximum health benefits. Just as our products are unique,
so is our name and the philosophy behind it. "R-Garden" means
"Our" inner garden of health. The "R" stands for
"Rejuvenating", "Restoring", and "Revitalizing"
the garden that grows within us. We believe that the name R-Garden, wonderfully
portrays the necessity "that we all have to take responsibility for our
own health". We hope to inspire and encourage you to do the same for
In 1996 we discovered a unique stabilized oxygen supplement that
we named Vitamin O. It has been
a help to so many people. We received
hundreds of testimonials from customers who wrote about how it had helped them
in some exceptional way. Vitamin O quickly
became our best selling product and has remained so to this day.
Our commitment to only offer products of highest quality and
potency is what has helped us continue to grow. Our mission is to fill the need
for better nutrition in an ailing world by providing tools for the
health-conscious consumer to have the highest quality of life possible. All our
study and research suggests that if we give the body the right tools it can
correct most imbalances caused by today's poor nutrition, stress, and
environmental pollution. Our promise to you is simple yet uncompromising: we
will never put R-Garden's label on a product unless it passes our high
standards for health-building bioactivity.
We invite you to try our products and see what a difference they
may make in your life. These products are for life. Your life.
In July of 2011 we merged
our R-Garden products with another company, however the arrangement didn't work out and after a year we took R-Garden back and we are running the company again ourselves.
This has been a little difficult as we have had to work with new labs to produce our products and that has delayed getting many of our products back in stock. Our daughter, Shawna and her
husband Gaylen Pelts are running the company now. Don and Helen continue to be very involved in various operations,
but as we are getting older, we want to pass the business along to a new generation. This will insure that these excellent products will be available
to keep us all healthy for many years to come.
Health and Wellness,
& Helen Smyth,
