MGC Super Health is a small family business, 100% homegrown, owned and operated by New Zealanders Grant & Megan Catley.
In 2010 we had a wonderful opportunity to travel around Cambodia, during which we both fell in love with the beauty of the country, its people and culture. In 2013, after many months of planning, we decided the timing was right to give our young family (then aged 2, 4 and 7) an amazing life experience, and moved to Cambodia to work on a dairy project.
Whilst living in Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh, Grant & Megan were introduced to the health benefits of one of the world’s most well-known superfoods, Spirulina.
This presented us with an excellent opportunity to assist the Cambodian people with available and affordable access to a much-needed nutrient supplement. After experiencing the benefits first hand, of daily supplementation of Spirulina, we wanted others to have access to this superfood as well. Our families doctor’s bills were reduced by 80% within a 3-month period and other noticeable benefits included:
- Cuts, scrapes and bruises healed a lot faster
- Bowel movements became more consistent
- Improved energy levels and an overall increase in body health and wellness
South East Asia has the ideal climate and conditions for the growing of Spirulina and in 2014 our Spirulina Farm and business, Global Superfoods was started. After 2 years building Global Superfoods into a self-sustaining business, including selling into high end pharmacies, (Ucare Pharma & Guardian) an international Chiropractic Clinic, expatriate supermarket and numerous private customers, we sold the business and relocated home to New Zealand.
After taking time settling our young family (now 6, 8 and 11) back into New Zealand life we have formed a Partnership with Myanmar company “June Pharmaceuticals” to be their sole Spirulina distributor in Australasia. June Pharmaceuticals’ Spirulina is grown in northern Myanmar, in natural Spirulina lakes near Mandalay. The lakes are 100% natural, toxin and pesticide free. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pMW7tqaDwI
