WE ARE ON A PLANT-BASED MISSION

BETTER NUTRITION. BETTER PLANET. BETTER LIFE.

Our doctor discovered what’s missing from most plant-based diets. Now, we’re here to share these essential vitamins with you.

ROOTS IN A CLINIC

WE STARTED AT A PLANT-BASED PRACTICE

If poor eating and lifestyle choices are making people sick, why don’t we use better eating and lifestyle choices to make them feel better? Why are we writing so many prescriptions?

These questions sparked the start of Dr. Todd Pesek’s clinical practice ten years ago in Cleveland, OH. He wanted to help his patients by addressing the root causes of their diseases. He applied his medical school education with his plant-based upbringing to teach his patients how to make better eating choices.

The transition wasn’t always easy for patients, but when they switched to more plants and whole foods, they started feeling better.

Plant Based Dr Todd Pesek

Dr. Pesek closely monitored their progress. He studied their blood work. He found a pattern emerge. As his patients moved to a plant-based diet, the majority of them were still low in a few key vitamins and minerals. Dr. Pesek decided to see if whole-food supplements would help.

They did. And Nutritional Roots sprouted up.

SUPPLEMENTING GOOD PLANTS

IN THIS DAY AND AGE, YOU JUST NEED MORE NUTRIENTS. THESE ARE THE ESSENTIAL VITAMINS AND NUTRIENTS DR. PESEK IDENTIFIED AT HIS PRACTICE.
PLANT-BASED MULTI + B12

Why is it Essential?

B12 is among the most common deficiencies, and the cause may go all the way do to our soil health.

SOIL-BASED PROBIOTIC

Why is it Essential?

The bugs in our belly (our microbiome) support so many aspects of health. We need to keep them happy.

Plant Based Vitamin D3
PLANT-BASED VITAMIN D3

Why is it Essential?

We go from homes to offices hiding from the sun all day – which might explain the rise of Vitamin D3 deficiencies.

PLANT-BASED OMEGA-3

Why is it Essential?

We eat lots of cereals high in Omega-6s, so we need plant-based omega-3s to support inflammation balance.

OUR DIET IS S.A.D.

The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) is contributing to obesity, heart disease and chronic illness.

PLANTS HAVE PROBLEMS

We now grow food with less nutrients density than the food we grew in the 90s.

Plant-based diets help support longevity, but it’s difficult to get all your essential nutrients in our modern lives.
