At Crucial FOUR, we believe in the power of natural ingredients to support our body’s innate ability to maintain and restore health and balance. While some of our foods and herbs are domestic or internationally sourced certified organic products, those simply meet our minimum standard. Whenever possible, we source our herbs and supplements from their indigenous regions in wild heirloom varietals from which botanical research and experience have derived their properties and benefits. These wild heirloom varietals thrive in the habitats in which they evolved or were first cultivated by indigenous peoples and deliver the most potent combinations of nutrients we have found.
Insights and commentary from our founder Charles Barber
After growing up on a farm in Texas where natural local foods were our daily staples, my early adult life like many others collided with fast food and the shortcut behaviors of modern life. Frustration with my declining well-being and the lack of concrete answers from the dogma of my scientific studies led me to exhaustive independent research on nutrition. What began as a personal journey evolved to providing recommendations and sourcing for family and friends, the suspension of my degree plans and the launching of Crucial FOUR. Eight years and many satisfied community members later we continue to be amazed by the abundant variety of solutions available globally.
