Matthias Rath Inc.

Company Leadership
Matthias Rath, M.D.: Internationally recognized and respected physician and scientist, Matthias Rath, M.D., is the founder and president of Matthias Rath Inc. Trained in Germany, Dr. Rath has served as a physician and researcher at the University Clinic of Hamburg, Germany, and the Germany Heart Center in Berlin. In 1990, Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling chose Dr. Rath to be the first Director of Cardiovascular Research at the Linus Pauling Institute. Dr. Rath's breakthrough discovery linking cardiovascular disease to vitamin C deficiency led to the creation of both the Cellular Health™ concept and Matthias Rath Inc. in 1998.

Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, Ph.D.: Dr. Niedzwiecki joined Matthias Rath Inc. as executive vice president, after serving as the director of cardiovascular research at the Linus Pauling Institute and now directs the company's U.S. operations. A respected researcher in the area of preventive health care as it relates to natural approaches to cardiovascular health and other conditions and diseases, Dr. Niedzwiecki works closely with Dr. Rath in directing the research branch of the company, and on developing and formulating the company's nutritional supplement products.

Dr. Rath's Discovery
Dr. Rath's groundbreaking 1987 discovery of the connection between cardiovascular health and vitamin C is the cornerstone of Matthias Rath Inc. Based on his breakthrough in preventative health care, Dr. Rath developed the concept of Cellular Health™—the idea that the health of the body is based on nutrition at a cellular level—and the Cellular Health Programs™ line of products. Matthias Rath Inc. was established to bring the discovery of Cellular Health™ and its life-saving potential to people everywhere. Matthias Rath Inc. is unique among natural product companies as the company that holds patents on its formulas and conducts extensive clinical trials on its products. A large portion of the profits from the sale of Dr. Rath's Cellular Health Programs™ are reinvested into future research.

Company Mission
Matthias Rath Inc. was established to promote safe, effective and natural health care solutions through nutritional formulations, clinical research and the distribution of health information. We believe that consumers should be free to learn about all health care options and to make their own educated decisions. We are dedicated to helping educate the public about all natural therapies available for the prevention and elimination of disease.
