Meet Our Founders
We created Good Pharma for one reason: we care.
As founders of Mighty Leaf Tea, and being fanatically healthy, we crafted teas out of our love for a tasty drink that’s good for you. Throughout our Mighty Leaf years of travel through China, India and Europe we discovered local rituals utilizing nature’s powerful ingredients contributing to supreme living. We experienced “food as medicine” in proactive ways, profoundly changing our lives forever. After we sold the company, instead of sitting back, we realized during our meditation retreat in Rishikesh, India that we had some unfinished business. We were energized to share how “nature’s pharma “ not only helps in keeping you healthy, but beyond, it gives you the gifts to be the greatest version of yourself, in mastering mind, body and spirit. Good Pharma™ was born to be the alternative wellness revolution for a better you and a better world.
Committed to providing people with powerful blends of ingredients in a tasty nourishing practice, we set off on a journey. Over the last 3 years we’ve foraged across the globe for the best and highest quality mushrooms and plant-based adaptogens we could find. We conferred with keepers of ancient medicinal knowledge, including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Indian Ayurveda and applied modern science to deliver precision potency — maximum health-supporting benefits to anyone willing to embrace the idea of alternative pharma. "Nature’s pharma". Good Pharma™.*
