Episode #47: Emily Cunningham // Co-Founder & COO of True Moringa // From Ghana to the US: Bringing the Moringa Tree to Life
Hi lovely friends! FINAL REMINDER -- we want you all to come to our gut-health event on April 4th! We will be diving in with Charity Lighten, who is the CEO and Chief Nutritionist at Silver Fern. We’ll start with an amazing Core Power workout, followed by a panel on gut-health and wrapping up with dinner from Dig-Inn. Sign up at the following link! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/go-with-your-gut-detox-chill-x-silver-fern-brand-tickets-57892653485 Let’s get into today’s episode! To say that Emily and Kwame are changing the world would be an understatement. Our guest this week, Emily Cunningham, is the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of True Moringa, and shares her story of bringing the benefits of “the miracle tree” to the U.S. In 2011, Emily’s co-founder Kwami had his sights set on becoming a rocket scientist. Emily was in the midst of her third year of studying development economics at Harvard, frustrated by the disconnect between the academic literature and the realities of poverty on the ground. Coming from different worlds and backgrounds, they traveled to northern Ghana together with MIT’s D-Lab. There, they were united by a desire to take on the challenges smallholder farmers face daily without access to patient capital, quality inputs, technical training, or guaranteed markets. ENTER THE MORINGA TREE. During their time in Ghana, Kwami and Emily were introduced to what was known locally as “the miracle tree.” The tree thrives in arid climates. It helps the crops around it grown better. It can be intercropped with subsistence crops mitigating risk to farmers. The leaves, with more vitamin A than carrots, more protein than eggs, more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach have the potential to end malnutrition and provide a stable food source to farmers. The oil seeds, rich in anti-oxidants and moisturizing agents produce one of nature’s finest cosmetic oils for hair and skin care. The solution to poverty, malnutrition, and hunger was growing in their own backyards. INTRODUCING TRUE MORINGA. The more they learned about the harmful chemicals in synthetic cosmetics and hair relaxers, the more passionate they became about bringing conscious consumers a natural alternative that actually worked. Putting their engineering and business acumen to work, they went back to Cambridge to devise a proprietary extraction system that could be brought closer to the farmers, adding value and jobs on the ground, and producing the highest quality natural oil nature has to offer. Today, they serve over 5,000 small farming families, they have planted over 2 million trees, and they have increased the farmer incomes by 10x. Can you say power duo?! Check out True Moringa here!! We hope you enjoy this episode!! Let us know what you think by leaving a review on iTunes, Stitcher, or whever you listen to your favorite podcasts. WE LOVE YOU! xoxo, Meg & Beck

Episode #44: Suzie Welsh // Founder & CEO of BINTO // The Importance of Better Healthcare for Women
Hi friends! We’re back at it again this week with an amazing female founder for Women’s History month, Suzie Welsh! Suzie is a BEAST at everything she does. She holds a BSN from the University of Virginia and a Master’s Degree in Nursing for health leadership from the University of Pennsylvania. Suzie is also an adjunct professor at Villanova University's School of Nursing, and a 200 hour certified yoga instructor. We mean…COME ON! BINTO is the culmination of Suzie’s lifelong commitment to women’s health. Working in an IVF clinic for several years, she’s seen the fertility journey for what it can be: long, frustrating, overwhelming, expensive. She’s also seen her patients bloom with renewed purpose. When you’re on that journey, it’s hard to know where to turn or whom you can trust. Suzie believes that there’s no magical formula for getting pregnant. There’s no pill you can swallow that’ll give you a guarantee. But you can get your body as healthy as possible, and be ready if and when you get pregnant. Suzie can help you with that—and that’s why she started BINTO (which, fun fact, stands for bun in the oven!). What inspires Suzie is that there’s hope for women and couples on this journey. Each month, BINTO sends you a box filled with everything you need. The care they put into picking these products with their team of experts is absolutely next level. We’re so excite to share this brand with you! Find BINTO here and follow them on Instagram here. We just announced our amazing event, April 4th, with Silver Fern and Charity Lighten.

Episode #43: Alfred & Cam // Founders of VitalFit Nutrition // Fighting Inflammation with Tart Cherry & The Grind of Entrepreneurship
This week, we have an amazing powerhouse duo on the pod - Cameron and Alfred of VitalFit. Cameron and Alfred started VitalFit as a part of their grad school thesis project at Babson. What was a gripe with commissioned sales clerks, flashy marketing, and lack of industry accountability turned into their full-time venture. It was ultimately a back injury from playing basketball that actually led us to their first product. Sick of taking ibuprofen and having no luck finding a natural alternative they felt like something was missing. Eventually, they came across tart cherry juice, which was surprisingly effective and began working on the way to best deliver its effects and apply it to the health and wellness space. At the same time, they noticed a gap between performance and lifestyle products. There were tons of products for athletes and tons more for general wellness, but few that were meeting in the middle for a fitness-conscious, working professional. All of these events contributed to Alfred and Cameron moving forward with VitalFit. Our conversation was fascinating and we are so excited to share it with you as well. Find VitalFit here, and follow them on Instagram here. We are so proud and excited about this episode and are so excited to hear what you think - let’s start normalizing these conversations together.
