KEB Enterprises founder and general partner Kenneth Brailsford brings a range of entrepreneurial experience to his leadership role. The co-founder and former CEO of Nature’s Sunshine, Kenneth Brailsford led the nutrition supplement company that became the first producer of encapsulated herbs worldwide.

Herbal supplements, sometimes called botanicals, are generally safe dietary supplements that may help with common ailments like headaches, low mood, common colds, and digestion. People have used botanicals for medicinal purposes for many generations, and these supplements do not have to go through the same process as other FDA approved medicines. In general, they are cheaper and easier to access than prescription medications and may not have the same negative side effects as harsher medicines, such as certain antibiotics.

Raw garlic, ginger root, and turmeric are all plants that have naturally occurring anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Other popular herb supplements include ginseng, which may help address sexual dysfunction, feverfew, which can be used to ease menstrual pain, and St. John’s wort, which may help elevate mood levels.
