At Health Plus our purpose is clear: To provide people with well-researched, safe, effective nutritional supplements giving them the freedom to live happier, healthier lives.
Who We are
For our family the pursuit of gut health dates back to 1981, when Pat and Rita Mediratta opened three health food stores in Southern California. Soon after opening the stores they recognized a need in the market. Commonly used ingredients in Ayurvedic medicine, a holistic healing practice developed in India over 3000 years ago, were not being leveraged in the US. They got to work in the back room of the stores using Psyllium Husk, a dietary fiber long known for its healing properties, and developed Colon Cleanse. The product was an instant success! Colon Cleanse went on to help define the cleanse and detox category in the US, and continues to be a top seller for the company.
Today, Health Plus looks very different than it did 40 years ago. We no longer have retail stores and our expanded product line can be found in 1000’s of health food, grocery and drug stores nationwide. The most important things about our business, however, have not changed. Health Plus is family run business that develops innovative products to improve digestive and overall health. Our female-owned company is led by Rita and her children Sunil and Shelly. Together and with their team they honor Pat’s vision for happier, healthier and more vibrant communities.
A Simple PROMISE
What makes Health Plus different? It all starts with integrity. In a world driven by the bottom line, there really are companies that still put people before profit and quality before quantity. At Health Plus we never create anything that we wouldn’t use ourselves, give to our children or provide to employees. And you know what? We do all of the above.
For nearly 40 years Health Plus has set the standard for quality. Our FDA complaint manufacturing facility is located next to the corporate office in Chino, CA, where we carefully study, test and manufacture supplements using the strictest protocols. Our team is committed to providing safe, effective products, created withthe highest-quality ingredients, at an affordable price.
