In 2017, Rishabh Chokhani founded Naturevibe Botanicals. Rishabh’s creation was inspired by the unhealthy lifestyles led by people around the globe. As a child, Rishabh knew exactly what being obese from junk food was like, and his decision to start a company that markets healthy, organic products came from his own trials and tribulations with health.
Naturevibe Botanicals focuses on all-natural products harvested from planets that are grown organically and without the use of chemicals. The natural food and organic product market is on the rise around the world, as more and more people turn to the industry as an alternative to prescription medicines and processed foods.
Chokhani hopes the world will turn to natural superfoods as a way to improve its lifestyle as a whole. It is a big hope, but with products that can encourage the fight of diseases, illnesses and disorders, there is an opportunity for organic products to be a bit hit; especially in the western world.
Chokhani recently spoke to Totalprestige Magazine about Naturevibe Botanicals and his vision of a healthier world.
Rishabh, can you please tell us about Naturevibe Botanicals and its products?
Naturevibe Botanicals was recently founded in 2017. It specializes in providing an entire range of the highest quality organic botanical health food products from around the world, thereby encouraging people to choose a healthy, nutritious, chemical-free lifestyle. Naturevibe Botanicals guarantees products that are gluten-free, contain no preservatives, have no artificial chemicals and are privy to ingredients which are only found occurring in nature. We offer a variety of organic products, including but not limited to: superfoods, botanical extracts, spices, essential oils, herbal raw powders, bulk teas and capsules.
Can you please tell us how Naturevibe Botanicals began and what some of the highlights have been?
We began by creating a botanical brand, and from there, we conducted extensive research and brainstormed how to create the highest quality products to best benefit consumers. It has been a major team effort to produce exceptional superfoods that are not only affordable and conveniently available online, but also incredibly life-changing.
Naturevibe Botanicals differs from other superfood providers, because it is not limited to one location for its source ingredients; we offer an array of organic health products from around the world. All Naturevibe Botanicals products are organic, meaning we ensure you are not ingesting pesticides or chemicals. They provide the correct daily dose of vitamins, minerals and nutrients for a healthy body and mind. We guarantee all our products are 100% non-GMO, raw, gluten-free and vegan.
What exactly are botanicals and why are they so popular?
A botanical is simply a substance obtained from a plant and is used typically in medicinal or cosmetic products. However, botanical ingredients are present in almost every ingredient we use in our daily lives: spices, herbs, medicinal herbs, dietary supplements, food, sauces and more.
Botanicals are popular to all people who are interested in choosing a healthy, nutritious lifestyle, because not only do they add flavor to your food, but they also boast tremendous medicinal properties which prevent and treat innumerable health conditions.
How did you first become interested in botanicals? What or who encouraged you?
I was a junk food lover from the start and, not surprisingly, was an obese child. As I grew up, I realized the ill effects of ingesting chemicals and the negative effects it has on the body. So, I chose to transform my lifestyle into a healthier one by integrating natural foods into my diet. It was this journey that led to my realization of what nature can offer to humanity.
With the botanical market on the rise, how do you see the future of botanicals growing?
As the botanical market continues to grow and expand, I see the United States as one of the biggest markets for botanicals. Americans are highly interested in dietary supplements, alternative medicines and wellness. At this point, there is a lot of awareness and growth of natural, organic and non-GMO products with a growing trend of going for completely raw products. I find this interest encouraging, which should hopefully lead to a new generation of people who find the use of botanicals simply a natural part of their everyday lives.
Rishabh, what is next for Naturevibe Botanicals?
We plan to continue to create more products that help bring nature and botanicals as close to consumers as possible. It can be extremely difficult for people to find specific natural products that are not geographically near them. We hope to reduce the distance between authentic natural products and consumers. Our ultimate goal is to help people lead the healthiest lives with the finest nature has to offer.
What is the most challenging part of your work?
All our botanicals come from farmers across the world, so this makes it challenging to connect with each culture and language. Yet, we strive to find a middle ground of communication to be able to deliver the highest quality product for all our consumers.
Rishabh, what is a day in your life like?
My day starts at eight in the morning with a cup of strong black coffee, followed by work in the office where I give instructions on the latest sales and strategies. I then leave for the factory to conduct a routine check-up on the quality and production. Finally, I head back home, but I am always connected to work through my phone and laptop.
What makes you smile?
Two things that make me smile are the doors of opportunity and unwavering hope. There are endless opportunities everywhere, we just have to learn to look for them and never give up. When things get tough, it is especially important to have a ray of hope. Believing in a better tomorrow can help us bear difficult situations and overcome adversity.
What scares you?
I am scared of failing, and it is this fear of failure that makes me work hard every day and hence it makes me more pragmatic.
What is your greatest achievement?
I believe my greatest achievement is yet to come.
What is your secret talent?
I am intuitively able to know when to speak and when to refrain from speaking. Words often cut deeper than knives, so it is crucial to know when to speak, what to say and when to say it.
Which historical figure do you most admire?
Mahatma Gandhi, because he was a spiritual visionary who expended his energies in service of others. Gandhi practiced incredible compassion and gave his mission the greatest effort possible. Gandhi said: “Just continue to give your best. If you fall, pick yourself up and march on.” This strongly emphasizes the importance of working hard and putting in the best effort regardless of the obstacles you may face in life.
Rishabh, do you have any hobbies or interests?
Yes, I love good music, being connected to nature and exploring marvelous food with healthier alternatives.
What are you never without?
I am never without my phone. I am always checking emails, texting, closing deals and communicating with my team. So, wherever I am across the globe, I am always connected.
Can you share two of your favorite quotes with us?
“It’s okay to be confused. Confusion is the route to all the clarity in the world.”
“If you live by your fears, everything that could go wrong will go wrong.”
What inspires you?
Our customers, they are incredibly vocal and passionate. They are also brutally honest, so not only do they share what they love about our brand, but they also inform us about want they want improved or what they would like to see next.
If you had the power to change just one thing in the world what would it be?
I would eradicate poverty, that would ensure everyone gets food to eat.
Rishabh, what would be your first advice for a healthy lifestyle?
A healthy lifestyle doesn’t necessarily mean sweating for hours on end in the gym and only eating salad leaves. Small healthy changes to your daily routine can generate a greater impact. By simply walking an extra mile every day, drinking more fluids and managing your diet, you can lead a healthy lifestyle that that will not only leave you looking healthier, but feeling healthier.
