What Does Rocket Science Have To Do With Unpeeled?

Having worked as an engineer on NASA’s wastewater reclamation systems for a hot 4+ years in Houston, I provided support and testing of a system that purified water for drinking water. The intended use was for shuttle and extended missions in space. A recycled “closed” system for space missions was our focus. A biological (microorganism) bioreactor was used to remove certain components in the drinking water for astronauts. It’s rocket science!!

Years later while I was working as a chiropractor in my Cathedral Hill Health Clinic, I was seeking an alternative from sugared/caffeinated beverages to provide to my patients. I started researching functional beverages, something that could supply the body with a healthful purpose rather than unhealthy beverages. My career turned full circle. Using my NASA experience while working at the Johnson Space Center, I used microorganisms to remove products from water—why couldn’t we use beneficial microorganisms to add nutrition to beverages. I studied probiotics and designed fermentation processes that would promote healthful nutrients. My idea worked!! Two years of development and testing resulted in the creation of Unpeeled.

Unpeeled not only tasted great but also supplied “Living Beneficial Nutrition” for my patients. Now Unpeeled is available to everyone. Look for a store near you that carries Unpeeled (see Where To Buy) so you can Drink to your Health!
