Tired of protein powders that were too sweet, meal programs that contained allergens, and food practices that conflicted with our ethical and environmental concerns, we were on a mission to create a product that we could stand behind and proudly put into our bodies. At Alaya, we worked with leading doctors and nutritionists, and partnered with an environmentally conscious lab, to develop a clean, nourishing line of supplements and powders that exceed the highest standards.
In Sanskrit, Alaya means “dwelling,” or “abode.” As we developed our line of products, we wanted to keep the idea that the human body is a place of shelter at the forefront of our minds. This concept of Alaya extends beyond the physical body to encompass the fullness of our experiences—our personal histories and our future potential. To achieve the mental clarity, stamina, and perfect health that our bodies deserve, we have created a superfood worthy of such a dwelling.
Born with an autoimmune condition that suppresses my white blood cells, I spent years battling oppressive ailments. When my beautiful children arrived, they brought tremendous joy into my life, but my immune system had its own agenda. Sleepless nights and depleted energy threatened to disrupt my time with them and derail my larger goals. I knew that my body needed healing.
So began my journey into the world of superfoods and the creation of Alaya Naturals. It has been a long road as I researched, tested, and perfected our products. But the effort was worth it. Today, I am stronger, healthier, and more present in all areas of my life.
I invite you to join the movement and tap into your fullest potential.
