Wayne Gorsek—Founder & CEO, DrVita.com
Wayne Gorsek is a vitamin and supplement manufacturer who became interested in wellness supplements as he watched his grandparents fall ill.
DrVita's flagship multivitamin provides over 90 essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants including 100 mg of CoQ10 and 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3. The Vitamin D level is 1200% higher versus others containing as low as 400 IU. This is the active form and correct level proven in clinical studies to provide benefits for bone, cellular, immune, muscle and whole body health. Most multivitamins have zero CoQ10 and most people only receive 2–5 mg of CoQ10 in their diet. CoQ10 is required by every cell in the body to produce energy and stay healthy including the muscles, heart and brain. In fact research indicates cholesterol-lowering drugs reduce CoQ10 levels and as a result cause muscle and nerve damage.
Recent studies show the typical multivitamin has zero benefits and may increase cancer by 19%. DrVita is one of the few companies that manufactures and lab checks their own brand in house. Mr. Gorsek found that when he tested products made by others a significant percentage would lack potency or contain microbiological or heavy metal contamination. In fact the #1 selling turmeric at Amazon.com only contained 1% of the active when tested. Wayne has invested over $26 million of his own money to create the most advanced and superior manufacturing, lab and distribution technology.
Prior to DrVita.com, Wayne founded Vitacost.com in 1994. Vitacost.com became the #1 online retailer in the supplement space from 1994–2009, in fact revenues were 400–500% higher than GNC.COM in 2009. Under Mr. Gorsek’s leadership Vitacost.com achieved the INC 500 Hall of Fame and Internet Retailer Top 500 awards. Wayne's IPO goal was accomplished with an IPO valuation providing a 3,000% gain to the average original investor at a $320 million enterprise value. Kroger, a Fortune 100 company, purchased Vitacost.com in July of 2014 .
Because of his regimen of supplements, Wayne only goes to the doctor once every two years — to get his FAA medical review for flying!
