Axe & Rubin

Evergreen Nutrition has recently brought in a unique line we are proud to carry. Ancient Nutrition’s pedigree is outstanding, as founder and CEO Jordan Rubin (on right) is very well-known as a New York Times best-selling author and the founder in 1999 of Garden of Life. He also formulated their original products, many of which have become revered in the natural products industry. Ancient Nutrition’s co-founder, Dr. Josh Axe (on left), in addition to medical and chiropractic degrees, is a best-selling author of several books on natural health.

Rubin and Axe together not only run the company and formulate the products, but oversee the Ancient Nutrition Center for Regenerative Agriculture and the 4000-acre Beyond Organic Ranch in Tennessee. They are committed to regenerative farming practices and the ranch and farm are Regenerative Organic Certified, ensuring the soil is nourished, replenished, and maintains microbial diversity. In addition, Ancient Nutrition’s practices include commitments to animal welfare, social fairness, and even sustainable packaging. Their bottles are biodegradable, made from sugar cane. They dedicate 1% of all revenue to their R.A.N.C.H. Project, which supports their commitment to regenerative agriculture, nutrition, and climate health.

Superfoods & Beyond

Ancient Nutrition’s focus is on nutritionally-dense superfoods, whether plant-based or animal-derived. They specialize in collagen and glandular products, espousing paleo-diet ideals. This does not mean they do not have vegan products, as in addition to their collagen products they offer plant-based proteins and greens formulas. Their herb and mushroom products are in a class of their own. For example, all of their mushrooms are grown on sprouted purple corn, resulting in a product chock-full of anthocyanins, the purple pigment giving blueberries their powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant punch. Their certified organic turmeric features three varieties of this exalted herb, all grown on myceliated turkey tail mushroom for even more health benefits.

Next Level Collagen

AN Collagens

Ancient Nutrition’s collagen products are among the best-selling in the country, and they continue to add new products to raise the bar. Their new line of Multi Collagen Advanced products features 10 types of collagen in each new formula yielding 20-30 grams of collagen per serving. Along with grass-fed bovine collagen are bone broth concentrates, fermented eggshell membrane, and a blend of grass-fed organs for a complete connective tissue tonic. Your joints and skin will be ready for anything the environment and aging can throw at them! The Lean formula contains an herbal blend to assist fat loss, the Detox version contains a liver detoxification herbal blend featuring milk thistle and reishi mushroom, and the Hydrate formula features Spanish red cave salt and red marine algae for important electrolytes/trace minerals.


One of the great stories from the natural products industry involves founder Jordan Rubin’s health journey as a young man. Suffering from severe Crohn’s disease and numerous other digestive disorders which nearly killed him, he was only able to regain health when he discovered soil-based organisms (SBOs). It was from this experience that Garden of Life was born, with its early emphasis on SBOs. In the 25 years since then Jordan has researched these bacterial strains and their profound benefits extensively and they are an important part of Ancient Nutrition’s core. These strains, such as Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus coagulans are extremely hardy organisms, covered by a natural protective spore enabling them to survive stomach acid and make their unfettered way to the lower GI system where they may work. Ancient Nutrition’s line of probiotics is based on these SBOs, along with other classic friendly bacteria more familiar to people. Each formula also contains a superfood blend containing various organic mushrooms (maitake, reishi, chaga) which further support the gut microbiome. In addition, they contain prebiotics (fuel for probiotics) and post-biotics (beneficial byproducts). All of these new probiotics are vegan, free of gluten and soy and all other common allergens, and of course are certified organic and non-GMO.
