A Christ-Centered Company Since 1992.......
Vitamins came into existence is a story of family and faith. It begins
with my family and how my faith and the faith of others helped create a vitamin
that will not only work but will help people live a healthier life.
Here is our
began when I lost my father, Al Brightman to pancreatic cancer. It was
1990, I had just found out my father was diagnosed with this horrible disease. When I first heard
the news I figured that my dad, who I considered to be a Super Hero, would beat
it with no problem. As it turned out that was not the case and he died 18
months later in June of 1992. With my dad’s passing, I knew I wanted to
find ways to help people become healthier, and live longer. I wanted to
give people a way to prevent the loss of their family, which is exactly what my family just endured. I
had the desire but just didn't know what to do. So I prayed…….
The death of a parent
is one of the most excruciating moments in a persons’ life, and I highly
suggest you tell your parents you love them and hug them each and every day.
Once a Mom or Dad passes, you have to wait until you get to heaven to hug them
again, but while they are here you have the ability to make sure that they know
you love and value them for who they are and what they have done for you.
I find that in the hustle and bustle of life that we sometimes neglect the ones
closest to us. Hug and tell your loved ones relentlessly just how you
feel about them. It was one of the hardest things that my family has ever
had to endure. But out of this loss came hope, and the motivation to start
Three weeks after my
Father’s passing, I had sold one of my businesses in the Children’s
Fitness & Entertainment industry and I was driving home from a business
venture meeting that I was thinking of pursuing, but God had other plans.
As I am sure you have heard this before, He told me what He wanted me to
do. And it was crystal clear and absolute. I did not choose to be
in the vitamin business, it was chosen for me and I have loved every minute of
it. God laid out the plan for me, it was truly remarkable. When I
say doors were opened for me to get into this business, I mean the doors were
literally kicked in, as only God can do! So now it was time for me
to get to work. I devoted my time and all of my money to researching why
some vitamins worked and why most did not. I also began studying
what nutrients worked well with one another, which ones did not, which ones
were all hype with absolutely no nutritional value. I also investigated
which ones don’t upload to the bloodstream without the accompaniment of another
transport nutrient, and which ones don’t work in powder form, and so on…
After getting such a wide array of conflicting information, I hired my own team
of Doctor’s, Pharmacist’s, Nutritionist’s and Scientist’s to help me create
vitamins and supplements that would actually work at the cellular level of the
body. Most vitamins and supplements as everyone knows, flow (excrete) through
your body with very little uploading, and uploading is the only true way for
supplements to be effective. It took us 3 years of formulations, and
re-formulations to come up with our first tablet form Multi-vitamin. Since all
of our studies, research and our double-blind tests were so absolutely
conclusive, in 1996, we started manufacturing these vitamins for the American
Now let’s fast forward
to the present time, I am humbled by the fact that God chose me and with His
guiding hand—a tiny company (that started out with one product) is now a
thriving business with more than 400 supplements and that funds amazing
Christian organizations that spread the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the
world. In essence, we work for God, and we know that there is no better job
than we could have than the one we have at LifeSource Vitamins. We are
blessed each and every day! We now ship to just about every country in
the world, and the results are all the same, fantastic.
We have inspiring and
fiercely loyal customers, and every day they tell us that God has led them to us,
and how they were looking online for a vitamin company they could trust and
there we were. With all of the vitamin companies out there now, how could we
possibly pop up? I think we all know the answer to that question. Our
Lord works in amazing ways!
As you know by now,
LifeSource Vitamins is a company that answers to God in all we do, from the
nutrients we choose to the way we run our business. We are loud and proud
of our company, our faith and what we stand for and how and why this company
was started. It was started to make a difference and that is exactly what
SERVE: We are so proud of the fact that we are
a company that is committed to the health of others, no matter what the cost. We
will not scrimp on nutrients ever! Health is our concern, not money!
GIVE: We donate ALL of our proceeds to Campus
Crusade for Christ (CRU), and The Jesus Film Project (Dr. Bill Bright's
organizations), as well as World Vision, Compassion International, and Key Life
Ministries. We also have a network of young men and women who don’t have
the monetary means but have a passion for going to seminary school that we help
fund and we also help fund local food relief organizations nationwide and we
are so proud to do so. This is why LifeSource Vitamins was started, to help
I am the youngest of 7
children with countless nephews, nieces and family members. Most, if not
all of these family members, take our vitamins in one form or another,
including my own 93-year-old Mother Katie, so believe me when I tell you, we
will always manufacture our vitamins with the best possible ingredients no
matter what the cost and we will never use heat during the processing that will
kill the nutritional value of our vitamins.
God has given us a
precious gift in the human body; let us honor Him by nurturing that gift to the
best of our ability and living a healthy lifestyle. Thank you in advance for
your support, and may God bless you and your loved ones always!

A Company Powered By GOD!
As I mentioned above, with the loss of my father I began doing the research, and what I started finding out 25 plus years ago was big vitamin companies were not putting the best possible nutrients in their products. I think it is easy to figure out if you buy fresh harvested nutrients vs. nutrients that is a week old, two weeks old or more, then the nutrient has been compromised. It cost far less to buy older nutrients or frozen nutrients and they are far less effective as well. Why would companies do this? Billions of dollars of revenue is why. Part of my research was trying just about every name brand and multi-level vitamin I could get, breaking them down, testing them, and actually trying them myself, and what I found was that they all cost a bundle and I still continued to get sick taking them. I caught every cold and flu (virus) that swept through Portland, Oregon and Orlando, Florida, both of my resident cities, both with very different health & climate challenges. I thought it to be ridiculous that I was paying $40 to $70 a month and got the exact same results. I got sick with all of them. This told me a few things, they were great at marketing the vitamins, and not so great where the results of the vitamins were concerned. It was at this point of frustration that I knew LifeSource Vitamins was on its way. I just thought it to be time for a company to compete with these mass distributors of nutritional supplements, and beat them through optimum nutrition. We don’t care about anything except results, in reality, results are all that really matter, not hype or slick marketing. JUST RESULTS!
In late 1992 my team and I formulated what we felt to be the most complete, well-rounded, scientifically advanced vitamin in the world and we had to test them. The testing needed to be done on people who were in tune with their bodies enough to see the immediate impact or lack thereof with regards to their endurance, balance, sleeping patterns, flexibility, sense of well-being and performance through this new form of optimum nutrition uploading. Our choice was simple; we chose athletes, and not just any athletes, Pro athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, NHL, Olympic athletes, World Class Marathoners, Sprinters, and Olympic Swimmers. We began testing with these athletes immediately, and what we found was astounding. We tested them for 2 years all around the world to ensure that the fantastic results were not geographically biased. We had the same results in all 17 countries. Our goals were easy, Stronger, Faster & Healthier! No Colds, No Flu’s, No Bugs! These results are only attained through your body being in total balance through optimum niutrition.
Proper nutrition, as I mentioned above, has been shown to help deter cancer, and also increase muscle and joint mobility, combat arthritic conditions of numerous kinds, fight against heart disease and it also has shown to defend against digestive problems. These are just a few of the preventative values that occur when having optimum nutrition. My dad, and of course God, are the true driving forces behind me creating the most complete, well-rounded, scientifically advanced supplements in the world to help us live a longer and hopefully disease-free and healthier life!
We are so blessed with the RESULTS and thankful for our affiliations with these athletes, as well as Christian men, women & children all around the world.
Please call us if you have questions or if you want us to mail you out one of our 84-page catalogs or venture into our website and see what we currently offer. We are adding new items all of the time, we are currently working on over 200 different supplements to go with the 400 or so we already have.
