Zenfuel Cofounder Anand Swaroop was introduced to the power of plant-based
healing as a child growing up in India. Anand’s grandfather, a naturopathic doctor,
practiced Ayurveda--a 5,000-year-old system of natural medicine.
After seeing the incredible results of his grandfather’s work firsthand, Anand was inspired to pursue a career in life science.
Anand went on to earn his master’s degree in biochemistry and his Ph.D. in chemistry before accepting a research position in the pharmaceutical industry. He studied the way that the many components in pharmaceutical products affected people on an individual level.
Over time, his work in the world of Western medicine led Anand to realize a major shortcoming of most prescription drugs--they were treating the symptoms of health issues without addressing the root causes.
This realization came at a time when Anand was feeling burned out and unfulfilled. He had all of the hallmarks of success, but he felt disconnected from both his health and true happiness.
Anand discovered that his childhood friends, Sri and Amit, were having a similar revelation. They were living a fast-paced, aspirational lifestyle as well, and feeling burned out, listless and unfulfilled.
So, the three friends decided to come together; to combine their complimentary professional backgrounds to create a company that would help more people discover health and happiness. And just like that (okay...obviously we’re skipping over a few steps !), Zenfuel was born.
