Founder Jesse Villanueva made the decision to start the company based on a personal experience with malnutrition. After working long hours for a tech startup company shortly after college, he felt exhausted in his daily life and began to realize that his health had become a secondary need in his life. After finally taking the time to meet with doctors and nutritionists, he took a blood panel test that indicated his diet was not providing him the essential nutrients his body needed.
Using supplements to fill in the holes of his diet he felt considerably better in his daily life. Realizing how long it took to seek out doctors and take the necessary tests to figure out what supplements he needed, his goal was to create a company that not only made it easy for people to find out what supplements they could take to achieve their health goals, but also provide the products to them in a way that was easy for them to incorporate into their daily life.
Why Puerto Rico
When choosing the headquarters for VitaRx Our founder, Jesse Villanueva, was very passionate about making it San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico. The reason for this passion was that he wanted to give back to the island that he was born on.
In 2017, category 5 hurricane Maria directly hit Puerto Rico; leaving the majority of the island displaced for a very long period of time and thousands tragically passed away as a result of the hurricane. After seeing his friends, family and the entire island devastated from the hurricane. Jesse made a vow to help in whatever way he could.
By choosing Puerto Rico as its headquarters, VitaRx is able to help Puerto Rico through employment of local young talent but also through direct contributions to local charities. VitaRx partners with multiple charities both locally and worldwide; primarily focusing on those that provide essential nutrients to young mothers in need.
