Lifeplus President J Robert Lemon, R.Ph, began his professional career as a pharmacist, providing prescriptions to thousands through a number of successful pharmacies based in the US.
Seeking to better service his customers, and with the foresight to recognise that nutrition would begin to play an increasingly prominent role in modern medicine, it became his mission to make high quality nutritional supplements available directly to the consumer. He went on to purchase a respected nutritional supplements manufacturer based in the US, laying the foundations for Lifeplus, which was founded in 1992.
When he later met with Dr Dwight McKee, a practitioner with a shared vision for the role of nutrition in healthcare, he recognised an opportunity to create a partnership that would eventually lead to an extensive range of nutritional products based on the latest science, practitioner experience and the highest standards – available to all.
Dr Dwight McKee’s extensive medical biography includes an academic background in pharmacology, laboratory research and clinical medicine, before undertaking twelve years’ study and practice of nutritional and complementary medicine disciplines as a medical director at the first integrative medicine clinic on the US East Coast.
Working with cancer patients in his practice inspired him to develop his expertise further. He became board certified in Internal Medicine, Hematology and Oncology, practising these disciplines for six years at top clinics across the US, and has additionally pursued advanced studies in Immunology.
Board certified in nutrition by the American College of Nutrition and the American Board of Holistic Medicine, Dr. McKee’s in depth and wide ranging experience in specialised medical practice, nutritional science, and complementary medicine make him one of the most knowledgeable researchers and clinicians worldwide.
In 2001, Dr McKee was convinced by Bob Lemon of Lifeplus’s potential to create and supply quality nutritional products straight to those who need them. He remains the primary formulator of our products to this day.
