Swanson Health Products and Kemin Health—Partners in natural wellness

Lee Swanson

Lee Swanson, President of Swanson Health Products®

Lee with Kemin Health President Rodney Ausich and Senior Engineering Manager Robert Stomp

In late September of 2006, I had the pleasure of traveling to Des Moines, Iowa, to meet with the executive staff and chief scientists at Kemin Health, the makers of FloraGLO® Lutein. The President of Kemin Health, Rodney Ausich, kindly hosted our day-long meetings, and our time was spent reviewing the impressive scientific data supporting the effectiveness and safety of Slendesta™ as a weight-loss supplement.

Slendesta is a remarkable substance with an equally remarkable history of development. Dr. Chris Nelson, the son of Kemin's founders and the current President of Kemin Worldwide, actually did his Ph.D. work on Slendesta's active ingredient. You can read more about Dr. Nelson's experience with Slendesta.

Also during our visit, Sr. Engineering Manager Robert Stomp gave us an enlightening tour of the Slendesta manufacturing facility—a fascinating look at how Kemin has managed to turn ordinary potatoes into an extraordinary dietary supplement. It takes 40,000 pounds of potatoes to make just 3.3 pounds of the active Slendesta ingredient! Mr. Stomp himself developed many of the patented processes that have made Slendesta a reality, and I was truly impressed by his knowledge and dedication to quality manufacturing.

Lee with Dr. Alan Koslow, M.D.

And finally, as our trip came to an end, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Dr. Alan Koslow, who conducted Slendesta's 20-week open-label trial in cooperation with Kemin Health. You can read portions of my discussion with Dr. Koslow.

I must say that I am proud to do business with ingredient developers like Kemin Health. Kemin, like Swanson Health Products, maintains strong ties to their family-founded roots. They're committed to the highest scientific standards, and the result of their integrity shows in every product they produce. I'm pleased to profile Kemin Health in this edition of our catalog, and I'm even more pleased to be the first to introduce you to Slendesta, the next generation in weight loss.

Yours in Good Health,
