episode 22: creating your own opportunities in business with Naomi Whittel

Why she’s amazing:

Naomi is widely recognized as the one to watch in the “wellness from within” space. Named by Prevention the nation’s leading female innovator in the natural products industry, she is hailed as a trailblazer and an advocate of purity and potency in nutritional wellness. From early on, Naomi turned to the healing power of plants as a source of health and well-being. After suffering from a lifelong battle with debilitating eczema she turned to an acupuncturist who provided relief through herbs and treatments. However, everything changed when she was confronted with dangerous levels of toxicity from heavy metals due to the herbs she had ingested. Blindsided, the crisis ignited her passion and promise to ensure that others would never endure the same challenge.

Ever since Naomi has traveled around the world to discover the very best health-promoting ingredients on the planet. From her discoveries, she created the first red wine resveratrol supplement line on the U.S. market. And her decades of work with ingestible collagen in Asia and Germany not only broke ground for collagen but have made it the must-have beauty supplement that is has become today. Her breakthroughs led her company, Reserveage Nutrition, to become the fastest growing midsize company in the nutritional supplement industry. Now, leading the charge as the CEO of Twinlab Consolidated Holdings (which acquired Reserveage), Naomi continues to deliver on her promise to help millions thrive with award-winning supplements they know will truly help them. She is most recently the proud author of her new book Glow 15.
