About Further Food

Helping you eat better, feel better, naturally. Founder's story: "My father had just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my mom was managing her hypothyroid, and my best friend was struggling with painful IBS. I went online to search for food-based and natural solutions that could help them heal. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and left me more confused.

And I decided to take the wisdom from this community to create real food based products that heal.
