Loyal Customers & Supporters,
Hi, Dr. Chris here! I wanted to take a moment to provide a little bit of background about myself and tell the story behind the development of BetterLungs.
My father is from an area of the U.S. with a high rate of smokers, much higher than the national average. Every one of my family members on my father’s side is or was a smoker. I say “was” because a few of them have now passed due to complications associated with respiratory ailments. I wasn’t raised there because my immediate family bounced from place to place as we followed my father throughout his military career, but we did visit during the holidays most years. I would see my family members following large gaps in time between visits, and our conversations would usually be focused around catching up on the state of everyone’s health. This taught me the importance of finding an approach to personal health that works at the individual-level. It started me on the path to holistic health.
On that path I helped a lot of older family members search for natural lung support products, but I never found any with much evidence backing them. After doing my own research over the years, which was aided through my education as a pharmacist, I found a combination of natural ingredients that would give my family the respiratory support they were searching for. I distilled the ingredients list down to the best choices, dosed them based on available data, and created the product we call BetterLungs today. Following rave reviews from our smoker and non-smoker test groups, we put it into production.
BetterLungs is not meant to displace modern medicine, but is meant to support the respiratory system of people like my father, who is in his 60’s and has been smoking for decades, as well as the next generation of athletes. For those that continue to smoke cigarettes, I wanted to ensure that the product provided some antioxidant support. For those that have a general interest in lung health, I wanted to provide ingredients that help improve athletic performance.
Thankfully, my father is currently doing well. He takes BetterLungs daily and has not run out of good things to say about it. My goal was to get the product on the market before his 66th birthday, a day which the family is very much looking forward to as it will make him the oldest surviving member of his immediate family. Our team achieved that goal with a few months to spare and even started developing a respiratory gummy, which is available now. My grandma Charlotte would've loved this whole adventure we’re on now.
