PR Newswire

Headquarters will be Based in Tustin, Calif.

TUSTIN, Calif., June 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Doctor's Best, one of the nation's leading marketers of nutritional supplements and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kingdomway USA Corp., announces the acquisition of the Viactiv® brand of calcium and magnesium chews. This strategic move aligns with Doctor's Best's growth initiatives, further expanding the company's retail distribution and providing their customers with essential nutrients in even more convenient, tasty options.

The acquisition of Viactiv brings together two industry leaders with a shared vision of promoting health and wellness. Doctor's Best is widely recognized for its commitment to science-based formulations with premium, branded ingredients. Viactiv has built a strong reputation for its innovative and great-tasting calcium and magnesium chews.

"We are excited to welcome Viactiv into the Doctor's Best family," said Gale Bensussen, CEO of Doctor's Best. "Viactiv has been the leading chew form of calcium for nearly 25 years, and has developed well-earned relationships with the Nation's leading retailers."

Calcium is an important nutrient at any age, for men and women. Nearly 30 percent of men and 60 percent of women over age 19 do not consume enough calcium, and more than 90 percent do not consume enough vitamin D.1 These nutrients are essential during early adulthood, when bone density is still building, and in the postmenopausal period for women, when bone density changes occur. Viactiv's calcium chews also include vitamins D and K.

"The importance of adequate calcium intake cannot be overstated; it's critical for bone health in nearly every stage of life," said Bensussen. "For decades, consumers have demonstrated that Viactiv is their convenient, delicious option for calcium intake. We look forward to helping customers continue to meet their nutritional needs by adding this beloved brand to our current offerings."

Bensussen will assume the role of chief executive officer for the Viactiv brand, and operations will be based at the Doctor's Best headquarters. Doctor's Best is committed to ensuring a seamless transition for Viactiv's existing customers and partners, with a focus on maintaining the same level of excellence the brand has delivered for decades.
