Strong Nutrition: Our Foundation

In North America, March is National Nutrition Month, for both the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Dietitians of Canada organization. Since E. EXCEL is firmly rooted in providing convenient, healthy nutrition for the immune system and other systems of the body, we are proud to join in celebrating National Nutrition Month.

During this, our 30th Anniversary, while we celebrate our 30 Strong years in the business of helping others maintain health through nutrition designed to support the immune system, we declare Strong Nutrition as our theme for March.

As far back as circa 400 BC, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” People have understood for centuries that the food you eat correlates to the health you feel. Now, we understand many of the reasons behind that fact—the vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, polysaccharides, antioxidants, proteins, fatty acids, etc., the individual elements found in plant foods that feed not only our stomachs, but our cells as well.

Thirty years ago, Dr. Jau-Fei Chen realized the connection between nutrition and immunology, and started E. EXCEL to research that connection in all its myriad aspects. With the intent of sharing the resulting knowledge with the people of the world, E. EXCEL provided the vehicle by which her research into Nutritional Immunology, and the resulting products she and her team developed, could be shared with more and more people.

Nutritional Immunology is a vast field of study, and E. EXCEL is proud to be on the leading edge of this discipline. Best of all, we use what we learn to benefit anyone who dreams of better health and a richer life for themselves and their families. Strong Nutrition is a foundational element of our corporate philosophy. We are pleased and happy that North America chooses one month a year to celebrate National Nutrition Month, but we will continue to celebrate Strong Nutrition every day of every year
