We realized that there were large stores out there that carried limited amount of gluten free or sugar free foods, but no single place had a large selection. We saw the need and took steps to fulfill that need

Sean and Patty Williams announced the opening of Strong Life Nutrition in Redondo Beach today.
In addition to a full line of vitamins and supplements, Strong Life offers a large selection of food items for people who live with Celiac disease, Diabetes, or need to eat a special diet due to a medical condition or treatment. This includes autism, irritable bowel syndrome, dermatitis herpetiformis, depression, and osteoporosis. Strong Life also offers weight loss assistance and advice.
According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, 1 in 133 people in the United States is affected. "We have begun partnering with the medical community and members of the Celiac and Diabetic community to bring in the very best foods and supplements. We plan to expand our product offerings to other food and ingredient allergies and focus on consumer advocacy and education. We want Strong Life to be a safe haven for anyone with special dietary needs." says Sean Williams. Patients suffering from Celiac disease are easily diagnosed and must eat a diet that is free of gluten, soy, barley and flour.

We saw the need and took steps to fulfill that need," explained Williams.
