Michael Mooney’s voracious appetite for nutritional science began in 1967, when he reversed his “sugar-kid” brain problems by abandoning the standard American diet, taking high-potency niacin and other vitamins and seeking out natural and organic foods in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.

Mentored by his biochemist father, Patrick Mooney, Michael learned to research nutritional science and became a “world authority, according to Sports Illustrated.” In 1973, they created a not-for-profit vitamin research co-op that led to the development of SuperNutrition anti-aging potency supplements. Together, they were early pioneers in nutrition, creating the world’s first gluten-free, hypoallergenic, science-based, full potency multivitamins that were also the first multivitamins that contained no fillers. They founded SuperNutrition in 1977 to bring their cutting-edge anti-aging potency multivitamins to the public.

About Super Nutrition

Founded in 1977 by Patrick Mooney and son, Michael Mooney, SuperNutrition is a California-based family business. SuperNutrition¹s mission is to build a better world through better nutrition. Each of Super Nutrition¹s products is made by combining science-based optimal potencies of essential vitamins, minerals, herbs, and antioxidants to maintain optimal health at the cellular level.
