Solgar was found in 1947 by Nat Colby, Mike Goldfarb and Carl Zoll, two pharmacists and a holistic physician. They all believe that preventing diseases with vitamins and minerals is better than treating them with pharmaceuticals. Since then, they decided the Solgar mission, providing cosumers the highest quality nutritional products to helping promote optimal health sold by educated retailers.
Now, Solgar's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, located in Leonia, New Jersey, US. All Solgar products are under The Solgar Gold StandardTM at every stage from manufacturing to distributing.
