The Power of Eden’s Garden

‘TO CREATE POWERFUL HEALTH’: THIS IS THE MOTTO THAT EDEN HEALTH FOODS FOUNDER, STEVEN PRAHIN LIVES BY, AND WHY HE’S SO PASSIONATELY DRIVEN TO MAINTAIN THE GROWTH OF HIS BRAND.

 

Trying to overcome his own health issues, Steven began learning of the power of herbs and superfoods in healing. He became fascinated by studying the teachings of natural healers like Master Herbalists, Dr Richard Schulze and Dr John Christopher. They resonated with Steven’s belief in approaching health holistically and working with the body.

What stuck with him was that not all organics are equal and to ensure a therapeutic effect, quality ingredients are necessary. Steven found that often the programs, protocols and products weren’t strong enough or readily available to people who needed them.

Discovering how misleading some product ingredient lists could be and how many companies concentrated on profit margins over organic quality, Steven saw an opportunity in the market.

Steven knew he had to create trusted, completely transparent, high quality products for his own health and for the health of others.

Sourcing the highest quality organic and wild crafted ingredients available on the planet, he launched Eden Health Foods, bringing superior detox, probiotic, superfood and wholefood products to the market.

“I have a genuine desire to help people achieve powerful health.” – Steven Prahin.

Steven has ensured that no short cuts are ever taken, nor is their bottom line a concern.

His main focus is discovering ways to make the Eden Health Foods products even better, stronger and more effective in helping to achieve powerful health.
