Wellness Chocolate got its start as the NutraPharmRx Project.
NutraPharmRx Meal Replacement Bars were developed by our founder, Etienne Taylor, a number of years ago, while running a nonprofit funded by, and co-located at the American Cancer Society corporate offices in Oakland, California, and were intended to help oncology patients better tolerate their treatment protocols, i.e. 'to ameliorate the use limiting side effects of certain pharmacological compounds'.
NutraPharmRx Bars were reformulated to support lifestyle dietary goals such as body recomposition, weight loss, and managing blood sugar levels and given a new name:
THE LOVE WELLNESS BAR was born.
