NOW was founded in 1968 by Elwood Richard. In their early years, Richard had already opened a limited chain of health-food stores in several parts of Chicago called “The Fruitful Yield”. He referred to them as Health Houses.

Richard also had a degree in physical chemistry, which gave him all the skills and experience necessary to help improve people’s health through supplements.

One of the main difficulties that he faced during the early years was that customers found his prices to be too high. Realising that affordability was just as important as health benefits, he came up with a plan to start his own supplement brand. Hence, his dream of starting NOW came to fruition.

From factory to factory, from creating catalogues to updating their brand, NOW expanded and cemented themselves as one of the top nutritional supplement companies of our time.

To this day, the Richard Family still own and operate NOW. Elwood's original vision for his brand is still how NOW is run to this day: to create supplements that are as high-quality as they are affordable.
