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.

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