Our story

What started with an exhausted, overworked college grad turned into a company led by an individual with a passion for helping others improve their daily lifestyle in the easiest way possible.

Our founder, Jesse Villanueva, made the decision to start VitaRx based on a personal experience with malnutrition. After working long hours for a tech startup company shortly after college, he felt exhausted in his daily life and began to realize that his health had become a secondary need in his life. After finally taking the time to meet with doctors and nutritionists, he took a blood panel test that indicated his diet was not providing him the essential nutrients his body needed.

Using supplements to fill in the holes of his diet, he felt considerably better in his daily life. Realizing how long it took to seek out doctors and take the necessary tests to figure out what supplements he needed, his goal was to find a faster and easier way to bring the same help to others. He then began working with doctors, dietitians and nutritionists to create the health quiz we use on our site today.

Why Puerto Rico

When choosing the headquarters of VitaRx, our founder, Jesse Villanueva, was very passionate about making it Puerto Rico. The reason for his passion was that he wanted to give back to the island where he was born.

In 2017, category 5 Hurricane Maria directly hit Puerto Rico; leaving the majority of the island displaced. Tragically, thousands passed away from not only the immediate damage caused by the hurricane but also a lack of resources in months to come. After seeing his friends, family, and the entire island devastated by the hurricane, Jesse made a vow to help in whatever way he could.

By choosing Puerto Rico as our home base, we are able to help the island through the employment of local young talent. along with direct contributions to local charities. VitaRx partners with multiple charities both locally and worldwide; primarily focusing on those that provide essential nutrients to young mothers in need.
