Origins and History of the ACE
The blend features natural elements that evoke the triptych of beneficial vitamins, known only from studies of the twentieth century. The importance of vitamins and the creation of multivitamin supplements and drinks only began in the 1930s. It was around 1934 that Carl Rehnborg, a pioneer in the history of nutrition, decided to create the first multivitamin and multimineral supplement in North America. A product born from the study he carried out in China in the 1920s on widespread malnutrition and the resulting pathologies. The correlation between food and health was direct from his observations. In the countryside, where fresh fruit and vegetables were plentiful, people were much healthier. In the cities, where more sugar, fat and salt were consumed, Rehnborg observed pathologies such as scurvy. The idea that the key to well-being and health were the vitamins of vegetable nutrients was his food proposal. Phytonutrients also include minerals and other beneficial substances, and Rehnborg's research was directed to the development of this diet also with sustainable agricultural practices. Combining these ideas, which have been established for decades now, with the natural contribution of vegetables and fruit, herbal teas and vitamin infusions are born - by now always pmore sophisticated.
