Natalia has MS degree in Biology from the California Institute of Technology. After graduating from Caltech Natalia worked at the Scipps Research Institute doing research in cell biology. At the same time she completed a 2-year program in Drug Discovery and Development at UCSD. The more she learned about the Big Pharma business, the more she was upset about the current state of the drug industry. This has led to her studies of nutrition and natural supplementation. She wanted to create safe products that would help people stay healthy and away from medications. That's how Vital Formulas was born.
