Ty
General Manager

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, is all about uplifting the vibration of humanity and the embodiment of right livelihood focused on service. While working to heal some gut issues in my early twenties, I discovered HealthForce SuperFoods® products and found they helped me immensely in my healing journey. I knew something was special about these products and the force behind them. This awakened a passion to share these products with the world and forged what would become a decade-long relationship with Dr. Jameth Sheridan (HealthForce co-founder and original formulator). I worked closely with Jameth over the years. He was my mentor and we became close personal friends and allies in the process. Now I see my work largely as a mission to carry his torch forward, to continue his passionate quest to offer the highest quality and most effective nutritional supplements to the people, in a time these are so very much needed on the planet. I call on his spirit regularly for guidance and inspiration as I work to carry his work forward and hold space for its evolution.

Outside of HealthForce SuperFoods®, my passions include songwriting, the study of consciousness, philosophy, and depth psychology, working with plants, and being a father to my two high energy, free-spirited teenage daughters.

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would choose Vitamineral Green™ (for core nutritional sustenance), MycoForce Immunity™ (to keep body strong and resilient to stress), and Oxygen Extreme™ (for critical first aid and warding off infections).

Philip
General Manager, Excelsior Alchemy

Excelsior Alchemy is the manufacturing and sister company for HealthForce SuperFoods® products based in Tempe, Arizona. Our foundation is Integrity, Passion, Excellence. Our company is driven by quality first, and our mission is to manufacture the highest quality superfood products using the world’s greatest botanicals and botanical extracts.

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, is my honor to serve the mission and vision of Dr. Jameth Sheridan. I am inspired every day to uphold and evolve the highest possible expression of the mission to create the highest quality products to help people have excellent health.

I have a passion for excellent health on all levels of mind, body, and spirit as that is the foundation for everything. With a solid foundation, we can unfold our divine purpose. I love yoga, breathing, ice baths, meditation, juicing, superfoods, family, my pups, nature, grounding, and healing modalities. I love my sport of mountain bike on my local hills. I love to climb up steep technical hills and feel my heart beating. I love the challenge, getting out in nature, riding my best flow yet.

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would choose Greener Grasses™ Alkalizer, MycoForce Immunity™, and Spirulina Manna™.

Favorite quote that inspires and motivates me:

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!” – William Hutchison Murray

Pat
Accounting Coordinator  

All of my life my goal was to be part of a company that made a positive difference in the world, and as their first employee over 18 years ago, my dream became a reality thanks to HealthForce SuperFoods®.

It was and is a privilege to work for such an ethical company, whose goal was and is to bring the most nutrient-dense products available to the people who needed them the most.  It was a pleasure to be the voice on the phone when anyone called HealthForce because our customers are always so grateful for how the products help them…..the testimonials given so freely out of pure gratitude for the benefits and substance of HealthForce SuperFoods® products.

As the years passed, I witnessed the tremendous growth as people found out for themselves how Dr. Sheridan’s formulations restored health and vitality to so many.  My roll now is more behind-the-scenes in accounting but there has been no greater honor than to have been part of Dr. Sheridan’s goal and the continuing mission of HealthForce SuperFoods®.

My passions are first my family, followed by my love of music, dancing and photography, which bring joy and balance to my life.

If I were stranded on a desert island, and could only take 3 HealthForce SuperFoods® products, they would be VitaMineral Green™, which is our flagship product and all encompassing, plus Liver Rescue™ and CircuForce™.

Gabriel
Research Manager

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, started when I felt an immediate connection to Dr. Sheridan and his mission from the photo on the back of the Warrior Food™ label. The reason why I wanted to work for HealthForce SuperFoods® in the first place was I knew what the products were capable of and what they could potentially do for others. I told everyone I knew about the products. That passion continues to this day and now I tell anyone who is open to it. I just want people to feel good.

My biggest passion in life is my connection and alignment to my heart-space. I feel the most free when I am wandering in the woods somewhere on a trail I’ve never explored before. Being and connecting with Nature helps me feel more heart-centered, more like a human being again, and reminds me that it’s okay and safe to feel again. I also love being in the kitchen fermenting foods and non-alcoholic beverages and learning how to make mouthwatering, raw, vegan treats. If I were to master one thing in life, it would be how to breathe properly. If you can breathe properly you can do anything. Breath is life!

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would take Elixir of the Lake™: I love the way it feels in my body. It gives me a steady, lasting energy for the whole day, and I love wild foods that have naturally-occurring ormus. Elixir of the Lake™ and wildcrafted chaga are two of my favorite ways to nourish and support my pineal gland. The frequencies and codes that Klamath Lake algae make available to us are so crucial for our time right now on the planet. My favorite way to consume is to mix it with Jun (fermented green tea) on an empty stomach. Vitamineral Earth™: The chill pill. I love the way Earth™ tastes and can eat it straight out of the jar. There’s something about the resonance of soy miso that other misos like chickpea or aduki bean just don’t quite have. It’s been a lifesaver during nights of insomnia where I need help taking the edge off as it has helped quiet my mind and calm my nervous system. Favorite way to to take Earth™, besides making a miso broth with seaweed in it, is to slice an avocado in half, add Earth™ to the center part, and top it with some homemade kraut. Simple and yummy! Intestinal Drawing Formula™: So much of our health is dependent on the feelings we keep in our heart and the health and cleanliness of our colon. It’s so easy to get into the habit of always wanting to take something for energy while skipping over the herbs that will help us let go. It’s funny how energized we can feel when we let go of the crap in our lives that no longer serve us. Mucoid plaque is no joke so I use Intestinal Drawing Formula™ as a way to support my intestinal ecology. I just add the herbs in with naturally-structured spring water and let it sit for 5-20 minutes until the mucilaginous herbs are good and ready to do their work. It’s one of my first lines of defense when I have food poisoning. Even if I lived on a deserted island, it would be top priority to clean my colon at least twice a year. Happy colon = happy life 🙂

Bheka
Marketing Manager

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, is so much more than a job. For years now, this experience of work has felt more like an extension of family, of community. I am so blessed to work closely with such epic, inspiring humans. I feel deeply honored to assist in continuing to carry out Jameth and Kim’s original mission to provide hard-core, pure, high quality superfoods at affordable prices. I feel a deep soul resonance with not only promoting and selling these amazing products but with the aspect of HealthForce that strives to inspire personal empowerment through physical and emotional healing. Sometimes it feels unreal, providing for my family by helping others gain access to education and amazing products. I love helping others find health and whole body transformation with whole food nutrition and cleansing.

I am deeply inspired by music, dance and being creative in the kitchen. I love road trips, the ocean, kirtan, photographing everything, treasure hunting and snuggling. I find continual inspiration in the prayerful action of creating sweet sanctuary spaces and alters. My soul’s greatest passion and the greatest expression of love in my life is being mother to my two epic, amazing, wonderful daughters. I am so grateful for my beautiful family – spending time with my mama, my siblings, and my nieces is a huge part of my life.

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would take Vitamineral Earth™, Green Protein Alchemy™, and Oxygen Extreme™.

Mari
Purchasing / R&D Manager

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, is my way of paying a gift forward to this company. HealthForce products saved my Mother’s life. Being a Nutritionist for 10 years taught me one thing, the quality and purity of foods you put in your body is the difference between experiencing sustainable joy and searching for the next quick fix to feel good. My dominant intention daily, is that I source the cleanest, purest, most bioavailable, highest vibration, sustainably sourced ingredients on the planet for our products. My second intention is to help HealthForce SuperFoods® pioneer the new standard of not just traceability and transparency of sourcing, but biodynamic, vegan-composting, permaculture farmed ingredients that give back to the soil and the Earth! I have dedicated my life to helping people create sustainability… whether that be with health, environment, purpose, creativity, or emotional awareness. Therefor working with a conscious team of human beings with the same and similar intentions for our customers, our communities and for this planet is living within my highest purpose. And that’s pretty freaking cool.

Trees are my favorite things in the whole world! Along those lines I love heights; hiking, rock climbing, aerial arts, hang gliding, and flying planes. We all need balance too! So my grounding activities are gardening, Buti Yoga, meditating, and woodworking. I’m a huge proponent of manifestation and creating within your reality and I believe that the more people you enroll in a goal, the faster it manifests. So you will find me frequently holding intentions with other people, whether it’s something I’m creating or something they have the desire for that I’m holding space for. Since you’re reading this I’m going to tell you what I am currently creating! I’m holding the intention that we, as humans, awaken to deeper awareness of our individual power and ability to contribute to the healing and homeostasis of the Earth and all things on it. And within that awakening comes the will and motivation to do so. And so it is!

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would take Vitamineral Green (of course), SCRAM (because parasites), and the new Adaptogenic product we are going to be launching soon (Shhh, it’s a secret!!).

Comet
Pacific Northwest Sales Representative

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, is an authentic experience and is part of my life’s purpose. I want to sell healthy vegan products around the world and help people feel their absolute best.

I love that HealthForce SuperFoods® is an independently run, plant based superfood brand. The other things that are in 100% alignment with my values are: our products are packed in glass, we have a mindblowing state-of-the-art facility with current certifications, and we go far beyond industry standards on our contaminant testing. We are not owned by a pharmaceutical corporation or industrial agriculture conglomerate that sells GMOs, chemicals, isolates or animal products.

Jameth Sheridan had a clear vision of what HealthForce SuperFoods® was to be and created formulas that are unparalleled. I want to continue putting my heart and soul in all the aspects of my job. The entire Healthforce SuperFoods® team are people I resonate with and care about. They motivate and inspire me, and I feel really lucky to be surrounded by such compassionate, smart, and healthy humans.

My hobbies are spending time in the magical Oregon forest with my 13-year-old dog, creating artful and healthy food recipes, practicing yoga, and manifesting my dreams, but my favorite time is spent is time with my family.

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would take Green Protein Alchemy™ Magic Mint, MacaForce Lucuma Spice™, and Shilajit Supreme™. Hopefully, if I were on an island, there would be coconuts, and I would eat these three products in coconut water every day.

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, is EVERYTHING! To represent one of the purest lines on the planet is truly a blessing. To work for a company that fully aligns with who I am brings great joy to my work days!

Mark
Northern California Sales Representative

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods® in the Northern California Territory is a huge honor for me. Focusing on my nutrition in a holistic sense has enabled me to have the drive, positivity, and determination to overcome depression, to find a deeper connection to myself and to my purpose in life. HealthForce SuperFoods® products have been one of the core components of my personal nutritional program. They have helped fuel the fires of transformation in my body, mind, and spirit. It is a real wish for me to share these amazing, high vibrational, nutritional products with as many people as possible.

My main passions include songwriting, playing the acoustic and electric guitar in various alternate tunings, and singing with a rock band. There is something so powerful and true in the primordial, visceral sea of music that compels me to express myself over and over again.

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods products with me, I would take Vitamineral Green, Vitamineral Earth, and Chlorella Manna Tabs. Essential Survival Botanicals!

Pete
Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas Sales Representative. Customer Service.

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, is selling and representing something I believe in. HealthForce SuperFoods® is an independently-owned company, not sold out to a big corporation. HealthForce SuperFoods® is the highest integrity, most environmentally-conscious, ethical, therapeutic, quality/purity product line that I know of. It is an honor to be entrusted to represent this quality product line in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.

Family is important to me. My immediate family includes my daughter, her husband, our 3-year-old grandson, my son, and his fiancee. I enjoy spending time with family, especially my grandson, who inspires me with his joy, love, light, and innocence. There is always great vibes and incredible vegetarian food at our family potluck gatherings. We are all looking forward to a family camping trip in June and my son’s wedding coming up in October of this year. I do enjoy gardening and have an extensive planting of beautiful, fragrant flowering xeriscape landscaping, as well as vegetable and herb gardens, fruit, and a variety of trees. I also enjoy doing most of the painting and maintenance and home improvement projects on my house myself. When not working at HealthForce SuperFoods®, in my garden, or on my house, I enjoy a variety of activities including reading, researching, art, music, and travel.

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would take Vitamineral Green™, Vitamineral Earth™, and Liver Rescue™. That’s a tough one because I love and use them all.

Favorite quote that inspires and motivates me:

“The quality, therapeutic concentration, and affordability of a nutritional product can and often does, mean the difference between lethargy and energy, sickness and health, and, quite literally, life and death.

Jason
Southern California Sales Representative

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, is rooted in my healing journey. Eighteen years ago, I was suffering from an athletic injury — an impact hernia. The hernia was so bad it was pressing into my colon causing diverticulitis, candida overgrowth, leaky gut, and IBS. What happened was I was a varsity cross country runner and full-time ice hockey player. Over 10 years with both sports and improper stretching and nutrition resulted in my right hip joint becoming so inflamed it started impacting my colon. After many Western doctors tried to figure out what was wrong, I went to traditional Chinese medicine, and they discovered my hip inflammation. I got into acupuncture and “alternative” medicine and that’s when I found the living foods diet. I was already vegan but never knew the power of living foods. I’ll never forget the first time I had Vitamineral Green™ from a friend and instantly felt refreshed and alive.

To heal my deep injury, I went on a whole food, living raw, fresh pressed, no sugar (even fruit) juice fast. Adding Spirulina Manna™ and Vitamineral Green™ to my juices (I would have added Green Protein Alchemy™ too but it wasn’t out at that time). It was basically the Phase 1 diet invented by the infamous Gabriel Cousens, but liquid form. Just after a fews days on this fast I felt amazing! After a month, the severe pain subsided. I felt so good I stayed on the juice fast for another seven months! To my surprise I actually gained muscle and weight during the juice fast! Since then, I’ve been on a 99% living raw foods/vegan diet (17 years in 2018), and I’m back to playing fast-paced ice hockey, feeling stronger than I ever did!!! I represent HealthForce SuperFoods® because without them I wouldn’t be here today, feeling young and happy like I’m a teen, at the age of forty.

The substance that holds me together is my love for all living beings. The excitement of being able to play and work for the betterment of our species. The joy of a game with friends. The calm peace of walking in Nature and witnessing all the nature dwellers we share this world with. The vibration of the Earth, as we dance with our bare feet on her naked flesh. That feeling, to me, is the life force which the planet shares with us, and from us we give back to her.

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would take Vitamineral Green™, Vitamineral Earth™, and Green Protein Alchemy Magic Mint™. I would have complete nutrition with this fabulous threesome. The only other thing I would need for complete nutrition would be more calories. Stranded deserted islands have a lot of coconuts! Calories, check!

Roberto
New York Sales Representative

Representing HealthForce SuperFoods®, for me, means representing the highest level of vibrant wholefood nutrition and botanical cleansing formulas that are available in any retail market globally. I have a deep respect and honor HealthForce SuperFoods® unwavering and uncompromising commitment to utmost purity and potency!

Since my teenage years, I have always had an affinity towards herbs/plant medicine. The first time I walked into a health food store, I looked at so many vitamins and herbal supplements on the shelves, and the one product that stood out the most was spirulina. I didn’t know what it was at the time, but something about the spirulina resonated with me. It was my first superfood/ nutritional supplement I ever purchased. I was hooked at that point. Since then, I have always consumed superfoods and herbal medicine. It has brought tremendous health benefits to my life over the years. Another passion of mine is creating art. When I have some personal time, I’m always Illustrating drawings, and painting. Living in the NYC metro area, it is important to me to spend time outside, finding trails to get away and enjoy Nature. I love experiencing all this in the presence of my wife and daughter.

If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could take only three HealthForce SuperFoods® products with me, I would definitely take Truly Natural™ Vitamin C, Green Protein Alchemy™, and Vitamineral Green™.
