Garden of Life Supports Returning Heroes

Posted by: Rhonda Price on Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Just in time for Thanksgiving, former soldiers and servicemen contacted us to say how thankful they are for Garden of Life supplements.



Training at the Undisputed North Park Gym in San Diego, the men and women are working out post-combat issues and post-traumatic stress disorder in a unique program offered by instructor Todd Vance. Classes in Pugilistic Offensive Warrior Tactics (P.O.W.) are offered three days a week and have helped many veterans cope with the nightmarish horrors they encountered in combat.


The program is so unique that the group was featured on HBO’s REAL SPORTS last summer, when we first learned about the group. Since then, we’ve been donating Raw Meal and a few other supplements to these grateful warriors, who asked us if they could proudly display a Garden of Life banner in their gym.

Instructor Todd Vance told us that P.O.W. is “actively improving the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of veterans and military through professional MMA training, yoga, and peer-to-peer support.” He added that “We are stoked that our P.O.W. group is getting the best nutrition supplements available from Garden of Life.  Every day we are extremely appreciative of this donation, and by hanging this banner we want you to know that are thoughts are with you every single day when we are training. Thank you so much for supporting our group, and we all want to wish every single employee of Garden of Life a VERY, VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING! YOU ARE ALL AWESOME!”
