Our History:
A Dietary Supplement Pioneer

Jarrow Rogovin Jarrow Formulas® was founded in 1977 in Los Angeles by Jarrow L. Rogovin. At the time, Jarrow would personally deliver orders of his supplements to the doorsteps of local health food stores. By the 1980s, the small operation had grown into a popular product line that necessitated a need for expansion, and Jarrow expanded the operation by establishing his own health food store on Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA.

Jarrow’s early formulations earned the company a reputation for producing innovative and efficacious formulations at a time when the health benefits of dietary supplements were just beginning to be recognized. Jarrow believed that well-crafted dietary supplement formulations based on sound scientific research data had the potential to promote optimal health. JARROW FORMULAS BEGAN IN 1977. FROM 1982-84, JARROW ALSO RAN A SMALL HEALTH FOOD STORE IN WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA By 1988, Jarrow's health food store was closed down in order to focus efforts on product formulation full time.

In a few short years, demand grew exponentially for the small company’s supplements. Since that time, Jarrow Formulas® has grown from a handful of products to hundreds of nutritional formulations, many of which were firsts for the dietary supplement industry. From humble origins as a small health food store during the pioneering era of the dietary supplement industry, to an internationally known brand with millions of customers four decades later, Jarrow Formulas’ operations headquarters are still located just a stone’s throw from the location of Jarrow’s original health food store.

Today, Jarrow Formulas products are available worldwide in countries throughout Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. From a California based pioneer, to an internationally known premier brand with millions of consumers, Jarrow Formulas’ original goal has always remained the same: To design superior dietary supplements that help empower individuals to take charge of their own health.
