At UMZU we look at health from a holistic perspective rather than the conventional way of reductionism. We believe that the human body is a self-healing organism that when supported correctly has the ability to not only heal itself but allow itself to thrive.
Instead of looking at symptoms and covering them with band-aids we go to the root cause of the issue and FIX the problem.
This is based on the metabolic theory of health. This philosophy states that energy creates order, and this order allows for structure to be created. When energy production throughout the system is functioning at its highest capacity the health of the organism is in a state that allows it to Thrive.
In this state of energetic abundance, the individual is able to live a life of abundance and manifest the life that he or she is meant to live.
From the perspective of the human body, this means alleviating micronutrient deficiencies and hormonal imbalances in order to allow energy production throughout the body to be at its highest possible capacity.
We believe that everyone has the ability to do this, they just lack the tools that are necessary to get there. We provide the knowledge and resources available to achieve this state of health and keep it to live the life that you are meant to live. You deserve to thrive.

ABOUT UMZU'S FOUNDER: CHRISTOPHER WALKER
Years ago a young neuroscience student, Christopher Walker, was diagnosed with a tumor on his pituitary gland.
The tumor caused Chris’s hormonal health to suffer a great deal. Doctors responded by trying different synthetic hormone solutions, but Chris held a strong belief that a natural solution - one without side effects - must exist...
Using all of the research tools available to him during his time at Duke University, Chris set off to find a natural hormone solution. He researched clinical studies and organized them in a way that, when systematically used together, ultimately cured him of his hormonal imbalances.
Chris later thought, “Well, if it helped me in this way, it might help other men too.” So he decided to publish his findings to help men across the world and build a trusted community of like-minded people following the path to natural hormonal health.
After some time, students of Chris began sending emails in to inquire about two things:
#1 - "Use Your Research to Create Better Supplements"
Although the organized research was helping people to take the right dosages of the ingredients they needed, it was still difficult for his readers to find these quality ingredients without fillers or other ingredients that negatively impacted the hormonal goals promised by other supplement companies.
#2 - "Help My Wife. Help My Kids. Expand Your Research."
The viewers of his material were experiencing personal success with their own hormonal health and were seeking similar research-backed information and supplements geared towards helping their wives, girlfriends, mothers, and daughters, so they too, could find a solution to the symptoms they were experiencing from hormonal imbalance.
WHAT ABOUT THE OWL?
His name is Francis and he is our mascot for a number of reasons, all of which are important.
First, Francis the owl is named after Sir Francis Bacon, the Father of the Scientific Method. Francis Bacon is the most important person you’ve probably never heard of.
Throughout his life, he contributed to the advancement of knowledge in countless areas, bringing the world out of the Dark Ages into the Enlightenment.
After his death, his ideas were the kindling used by a handful of the world’s greatest thinkers like Isaac Newton, Voltaire, and John Locke to ignite the fire of the Enlightenment across Europe through methodical, scientific analysis, empowering humans - as individuals - to take back control of their lives from the tyrannical despots of the day - in all forms: body, mind, and spirit.
He relied not just upon his ideas, but upon empirical evidence for the validation of those ideas. The thoughts he chose to write down, to push into the collective conscious of the human race through his books, plays, and poems, were radical in the 1600s. They’re ironically even more relevant today. They were heretical in the best way.
His patron saint was the Truth. Sir Francis Bacon believed that science is the exploration of nature. And so do we. Science and nature are not at odds - as the modern medical machine would like you to think. In fact, one is the exploration of the language of the other.
Bacon’s mind was the gravitational pull that, within a century inspired men like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington in the establishment of the Colonies in the Americas: a Utopian idea, a new Atlantis. But unlike so many Utopian projects before it, and after… this one actually worked.
Jefferson proclaimed in one of his many letters during the American Revolution, “Bacon, Locke, and Newton, I consider them as the three greatest men that have ever lived, without any exception, and as having laid the foundation of those superstructures which have been raised in the physical and moral sciences.”
Sir Francis Bacon’s devotion to the advancement of learning, to the pursuit of truth through scientific exploration of nature, has inspired us to mold our owl in his namesake.
What Does The Owl Have To Do With It?
The owl is an ancient Greek symbol of Wisdom. Greek mythology states that owl sat on the blind side of Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom, so she could always see the whole Truth. We all have blind spots; we need Francis the owl to remind us to see the truth - that there is always a Truth, a higher ideal to pursue.
Pericles, the renowned and respected statesman who ushered in the Golden Age of Athens in the 5th century, used the owl as his symbol. His rise to power was reluctant, but the people needed him, and he led them into the greatest time in the history of Greece - now known as the Classical Period of Greek history, still referenced as one of the greatest periods of prosperity in health, wealth, philosophy, and art in recorded human history.
The symbol of Pericles, coupled with the spirit of Sir Francis Bacon’s devotion to truth and reason are the bedrock of the UMZU owl, Francis. Francis is a symbol for all that is good in the advancement of human knowledge through the pursuit of wisdom in the study of nature through science. Francis represents UMZU with the poise and prudence needed to cut through the fog in today’s world, to shine the light on what is right and true and good for the human race.

Darren was born and raised in Port Dalhousie, Ontario (home to Lakeside Park made famous by Rush).
In the late 90s and early 2000s Darren owned a small local bowling center in Middle Tennessee with his family, where he learned the art and science of direct marketing in order to fill the lanes with leagues, casual bowlers and birthday parties. It was also during this time that he learned how to leverage the burgeoning internet to do the same. He was featured in industry magazines for what was then pioneering internet marketing for bowling centers.
The second half of the 2000s was spent in corporate America at Dell where Darren worked with Fortune 1000 companies on their technology needs. This was followed by some Silicon Valley startup in the new Cloud Computing space.
In 2015 the early seed of the idea of UMZU was planted when Darren met his future business partner and co-founder, Christopher Wallker. The business rapidly expanded as the business found its voice and developed a philosophy of researched-backed solutions to help men and women thrive.
Robert graduated college with a degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering with foci in Data Science and Computer Science. Since then, he's helped grow UMZU through marketing, web development, operations management and data science.
Raised in Virginia, he seeks to take a small-town work ethic to big business by helping grow UMZU supplements into the hands of anyone who needs them.
His hope is that, as UMZU grows in influence, more and more people will understand how powerful nutrition and lifestyle truly can be. He's seen nutrition shrink tumors and waistlines. He's seen lifestyle choices save brains, hearts and even marriages. To Robert, there is no limit to the power of a natural, holistic approach to life and he won't rest until UMZU changes how the public approaches personal health.
