A Short History...

Environmed Research Inc. was founded in 1984 In Vancouver, British Columbia by Dr. Stephen Gislason. The goal of the company was to pursue the basic biotechnology of health-promotion and disease prevention. The premise of the company was that the environment was the major determinant of health and disease; solving problems in the food supply, water, and air would be the basis of health-seeking activity in the future. The first focus was problems in the food supply. In Vancouver, Environmed Research became a publisher, an information hub, an educational group, a support system, a manufacturer of nutrient formulas and developer of the Alpha Nutrition Program, a basic strategy of nutritional medicine. The first Alpha Online website started in 1995 in West Vancouver and has grown into a large information center.

Persona AudioVisual, became a division of Environmed Research in 1984, to develop publications, music and video productions. The name was modified to Persona Digital in the 1990's. Persona Digital separated in 2006 to pursue the Persona Digital Books collection and to develop the Persona Digital Studio for recording and music creation. Persona Digital Online is an eBook, music store that reaches an international audience. Alpha Nutrition eBooks are downloaded from Persona Digital Online.

The first elemental nutrient formulas were developed and tested in 1989 and marketed in 1991 under the name ENFood. Initially the ENFood formula was manufactured on contract by Quest Vitamins Ltd. in Vancouver. After Quest stopped custom manufacturing, Alpha formulas were made by Rheema in Burnaby, B.C. Alpha Nutrition was created as a division of Environmed in 1998 and opened an office and formula manufacturing facility in West Vancouver. Online information, publishing and sales activities were expanded. Two websites were maintained with online information. An online order system, Alpha Online, was created in 1999.

Alpha Nutrition moved from West Vancouver to Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast, just west of Vancouver In Jan 2003. In October 2004, four websites were integrated into one site Alpha Online with a new and improved online ordering system.
