MissionIRNewsBreaks – Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI) Co-Founder Showcased in Globally-viewed Documentary

Leading omni-direct lifestyle company Youngevity International’s (NASDAQ: YGYI) co-founder Dr. Joel Wallach was recently featured in a documentary that highlights his impactful career of spreading health and wellness awareness worldwide. A recent article discussing the film reads, “A recent documentary on the Youngevity founder has been released by Carpe Diem Media. It is titled “The Audacity of Health: The Dr. Joel Wallach Story” and has already garnered a global following thanks to social media. The documentary traces the evolution of Wallach’s quest to spread health and wellness from the 1960s through his four decades of work in the industry. Most notably, the film showcases his early research-driven activism to save the white rhino from pollution in the 1960s, as well as his monumental victory petitioning the FDA to mandate supplement manufacturers to require important nutrients like folate, among others, as required dietary supplements. Folate, once a negligibly known substance, is now recognized as a critical component in prenatal vitamins to foster fetal health and development. The benefits of his work for the health and wellness of citizens are innumerable and far-reaching.”
