Brendan Gaughran

I was a Pre-Med student and I hold a Master's degree. After graduating I spent time in the pharmaceutical industry before switching to the natural products industry. Since then, I have been an executive for a leading supplements manufacturer and have started two companies, both with the mission of helping to improve quality of life. Nutrition is my passion and knowledge is my gift to you.

It is also linked to increased gluten sensitivity, IBS and also damages cytochrome, preventing liver detoxification by halting the work of liver enzymes.
