Peter's Story

About Peter Gillham
Australian born, Peter was on holiday in Morocco in 1968 and got “Montezuma’s Revenge" (aka food poisoning).  He met an American who told him, you can handle your food poisoning in half an hour.  What did this fellow tell him to do?  He told him to juice oranges and drink the juice within 10 minutes.  The juice had to be drunk quickly while it was still alive with enzyme activity. Peter followed this stranger’s advice and was better in 20 minutes.  This experience sparked an interest in Peter to learn more.  The American told Peter that in the United States they had these places called “health food stores” and they had "books on this stuff". Peter was determined to find out more and in 1973 he arrived in America.
Peter had a strong desire to help people and  opened his first nutrition center in Los Angeles, California, in 1978. During this period he was involved in extensive research, the findings of which were contained in 52 published health bulletins.  This research culminated in 1980 with a breakthrough resulting in the formulation of a more bioavailable form of magnesium.  In 1982, Peter released his water-soluble magnesium powdered drink which has since become a best-selling product and is found in almost every vitamin store in North America, as well as many countries around the world.
Since 1978, Peter has written numerous articles and has lectured internationally on general nutrition and specifically on the benefits of magnesium. 
Well ahead of his time, Peter’s findings on the importance and efficacy of magnesium are currently being validated by scientific findings from numerous sources, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the American Diabetes Association, The Journal of the American Medical Association, and the Russian Pediatric Doctor’s Association.
