Founding Story
At the age of 15, Ray Faltinsky's mother, Martha, was diagnosed with osteoporosis. She was told that she would eventually lose her ability to walk. Ray's older brother, Ron, who was deeply involved in nutrition, and made her a drink containing nutrients for healthy bones. Martha agreed to try it. After several months, her pain ceased, and her mobility increased. When she returned to visit her doctor, the X-rays showed that she no longer ( ) had the disease. From that experience, Ray became highly involved in nutrition and natural health. He later graduated from Yale Law School although he knew that he would never practice law. Instead, he and his good friend, Kevin Fournier, founded FreeLife International. They were backed by a team of investors that consisted of Anson Beard of Morgan Stanley/Dean Witter and the author of The Vitamin Bible, Earl Mindell.

In 1996, Earl Mindell met a prominent Asian healer who introduced him to the goji berry. He spent the next seven years searching for the secrets of the ancient Himalayan remedy. He and his researchers discovered that gojis four unique polysaccharides (LBP-1, LBP-2, LBP-3, and LBP-4) act as Master Molecules in the body. Within the body, they serve as directors and carriers of the instructions that cells use to communicate with each other. He then was able to identify, isolate, and harvest the berries. Earl then found a way to incorporate the berries into a 100 percent juice product patterned from the ancient recipes and practices of the people of the Himalayans.

October 2003 was when the company released Himalayan Goji® Juice.
