 Co-Founders Darian McDaniel and Dr. Karleena Tuggle-McDaniel started Problk Health Vitamins for two main reasons - first, to act as a vehicle spotlighting health awareness by encouraging and increasing health consciousness in the Black community where it is often not prioritized. And secondly, to work toward eradicating health disparities in Black communities by donating 50% of net profits to support existing non-profits whose goals are to improve health and wellness in majority Black communities.

Dr. Karleena has been a physician for over 16 years in predominantly minority communities, and a weight loss surgeon for the past 11 years. Constantly seeing patients who have health issues that are often preventable or controllable with improved lifestyle modifications, She wanted to do something that most people had access to, could afford, and would be able to do on an almost daily basis that positively contributed to their overall health.

Co-Founder Darian, with 20 years of marketing experience, suggested vitamin supplements since at least 92% of Black people have some level of vitamin deficiency and medical research has shown that these deficiencies can contribute to health issues. He comments, "We combined that idea with a pitch on Shark Tank where a company donates a portion of profits to benefit marine life. We thought, if they could do that for fish, we could definitely do something similar for Black people. Voila... Problk Health Vitamins was born."

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here

Author and U.S. Army chaplain James Darren Key highlights 40 lessons and stories about race, love, honor, and faith to inspire people during changing times in his new memoir A Long Way from Crenshaw: Lessons and Stories about Race, Love, Honor, and Faith for These Changing Times (published by WestBow Press).

With the purpose of being accessible to all, the author writes in a conversational style. Exploring how life can change, and not always positively, he demonstrates how the human spirit can overcome those circumstances.

Additionally, Key speaks candidly about growing up Black in California in the 1970s and 1980s. Wanting to empower others, the author examines his own weaknesses and fears.

Through this study, he hopes to help people:

• recognize failures and successes along their journey;
• approach race and diversity with sensitivity and courage;
• heal from an unhealthy relationship before starting a new one;
• face trials and controversy with unshakable faith.

You can order "A Long Way from Crenshaw" at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

In addition to their vitamins & supplements being made and designed of the highest quality, following the national safety guidelines and certifications, 50% of the profits will go to non-profits that work towards eradicating health disparities in Black communities.

Dr. Karleena comments, "What makes us different from other supplements is that we help support your individual health while supporting the health of your community. How many other vitamin brands can say the same? We also aim to make health and wellness relatable and cool to encourage more people who may not be thinking about it to make it a priority."

"We wholeheartedly believe that our health is our most valuable asset. Since we only get one shot at this thing called life, let's make the most of it. The status of our health can hold us back with unfulfilled dreams or boost us to heights we could never imagine possible. At the end of the day, we all have the power to optimize our potential," she adds.
