Our mission at Zuma Nutrition is to offer the very best nutritional supplements and health education that we can provide. We leverage decades of research and experience to ensure that our products are of the highest purity and quality. Our manufacturing teams consist of herbalists, physicians, biochemists, and nutritionists, who are all devoted to bringing you the very best superfoods, nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and healing tools. We understand the impact that businesses can have on the environment, and we are committed to having a positive ecological footprint. We source ingredients from organic and regenerative farms, as well as wild harvest ingredients practicing sustainable wild-harvesting methods, and package all of our products in recyclable miron glass.

Sourcing & Clean Biochemistry

We work with regenerative farms who focus on preserving soil health and biodiversity. By focusing on the health of the soil, we keep the delicate communities of microorganisms alive, allowing for healthier and more nutrient-dense plants, while simultaneously helping to sequester carbon, taking it out of the atmosphere and storing it within the soil. No synthetic pesticides or chemicals are used in any of our products.

Working with Aligned Health Specialists

The Zuma Nutrition product line was developed for practitioners and is an advanced product line with very therapeutic products. We work with aligned specialists around the world who use our products in their clinical practice.

Richard Helfrich


Richard’s life was changed forever when he discovered he had a serious heart condition known as cardio-myopathy. Cardiomyopathy, a type of heart muscle disease, is a progressive disease in which the heart is abnormally enlarged, thickened, and/or stiffened. As a result, the heart muscle’s ability to pump blood is less efficient, often causing heart failure.

Rather than consider the heart transplant option he was presented with, Richard decided to take control of his condition and control of his life through a course of alternative medicine. Within five years he completely and successfully rebuilt his heart. 40 years later his heart is still in great condition and working beautifully.

This courageous step resulted in a voyage of self-discovery, which included a change in lifestyle, a disciplined study of medicine, and the attainment of an extensive knowledge of how the body works.

The result has been Richard’s creation of a program of health that has now succeeded in helping thousands of individuals, as well as a private clientele of international film stars and famous personalities through his business Health Spectrum.

Richard is also the author of four books, published in the United States and Europe, including Take Control of Your Health, Immune Response, The 24 Hour Body, and Young Inside and Out. His books give the reader not only a manual on how the body works, but also a guide to how to recover their health, no matter their condition.

Jordan Dorn


Jordan has dedicated his career to developing Zuma Nutrition and studying under Richard after suffering with health issues of his own at a young age.

Rather than turning to pharmaceutical medication, Jordan was able to recognize his issues were stemming from a disrupted gut micro biome, poor dietary habits, and nutrient deficiencies.

Jordan is a certified nutritionist, a chef, and has a deep passion for helping people heal using lifestyle practices, nutrition, nutritional supplements and mind body spirit balance.

Outside of Zuma Nutrition Jordan is an avid surfer and loves to spend time in nature.

Joseph Kauffman


Joseph developed a passion for health and wellness at age 16, when he learned about the harmful toxins in many of today’s foods and how modern industrial agriculture is impacting the natural world. This motivated Joseph to begin studying health, nutrition, permaculture and organic gardening.

As he continued to learn about health and the ecological crises we face, Joseph soon realized the major role that stress plays in our wellness. He discovered the impact of the mind on the body, as well as the impact of the mind on the environment, as the harmful actions towards the natural world stem from psychological roots of violence, greed, overconsumption, and ignorance of our inherent connection to nature.

The desire to better understand the mind and human nature sparked a passion for mindfulness, meditation, yoga and alternative health practices, and Joseph has been a student of these modalities for over a decade now. He has since written 9 books on these topics, founded an online meditation course platform called Conscious Collective, and is certified as a Mindfulness Teacher, Yoga Instructor, Breathwork Facilitator, and Permaculture Designer. His greatest inspiration is to continue to learn about holistic wellness and natural living, and to share what he learns with as many people as possible.
