Let's talk about our Premium Line: Head Formulator John Mills goes live!

We have been talking about it for months now. We have introduced a brand-new Mt. Angel Vitamins supplement line, and we are excited about it. Like, really excited about it. We took our favorite great quality, effective, and thoughtfully-formulated products, and made them even better with ingredient upgrades, trademarked-materials, and scientifically-backed formulas that we believe will take the product to new heights. Not only did we update some of our favorites (say hello to Go-Out Plex™ Plus!), but we added some new products as well (Fabulously Female™, YourHeart™ Nutrients, Adrenal Support™ just to name a few.)  And the best part? All these fresh new changes come in a fresh new look--taking a step away from our signature "orange" feel and modernizing Mt. Angel Vitamins in a sleek, stand-alone amber bottle and gold lid.

But when we are this excited about something we have been waiting for--picture a little kid getting the puppy they wanted for Christmas--we aren't just satisfied telling a couple people about it. So we brought in John Mills, Mt. Angel Vitamins Director of Quality & Compliance and Head Formulator, who is the intellect behind our formula upgrades and creations. And he is broadcasting live on KFNX Healthy House Call Radio Show to spotlight, explain, and answer questions regarding our brand-new premium line products.
