    Today, I sit down with the Founder and CEO of Karallief -- Krishna Rajendran.


     


    More About Krishna:


    "Krishna has always been motivated to innovate for the good of the community and make a significant impact. During his previous experience at Green Chem, he led a team that developed innovative natural formulas in collaboration with the best research institutes. Green Chem won multiple awards and patents for innovation during this time. To give back to the community, he helped build schools for underprivileged children in South India.


    Later, Krishna moved to the United States, where he earned his Master's in Logistics from MIT and his MBA from Harvard Business School. He was the sole recipient of the prestigious J Leslie Rollins Award at Harvard for his outstanding contribution to the community.


    With a strong desire to bring innovative natural products to positively impact many people, Krishna created KARALLIEF."

    More About Karallief
    "Karallief has brought together the powerful forces of nature, science and innovation to develop highly effective and pure herbal extract formulas.


    Unlike many ingredient suppliers that use substandard, untested materials and lack quality control measures, Karallief only offers safe, effective, and scientifically backed ingredients that are tested through rigorous quality control procedures. We believe that science should drive strategy and not the other way around. Our products undergo extensive scientific studies, including human clinical trials, and we conduct strict quality controls and quality assurance reviews at all stages. We also believe that the purity of our raw materials is just as vital in producing our superior formulas. Karallief is deeply motivated by our mission to do good and contribute positively to healthcare in society, which is why it is so important to us to raise scientific and quality standards in the herbal industry. Although we are a supplier of ingredients to consumer brand companies and not one of them, we believe that we have an important role in inspiring confidence in the industry."

Rob is the supplement guru!

Rob is real. Podcast hits the nail right on the head with supplements, the ingredients, the industry. Grateful for this guy and also answers your questions. We need more people in this industry like him. Listen and subscribe and get ready to be a sponge to soak all of information he gives you. Enjoy!!

Novak824 ,

Straight to the point

This podcast is bold, raw, transparent, and in your face real. Rob talks about the failures and successes of being a gym and supplement company owner. He goes deep into the ingredients to support the science as to why each ingredient is added to his products to give his consumers the best products possible to achieve their goals. There is nothing hidden in this podcast just like there is nothing hidden in his supplements. This is a great educational podcast that all supplement consumers should listen to.
