Thorne is partnering with former professional football player Greg Olsen to highlight the importance of a proactive and personalized approach to well-being
NEW YORK, March 28, 2022 – Thorne HealthTech, Inc. (“Thorne HealthTech” or “Thorne”) (NASDAQ: THRN), a leader in developing innovative solutions for a personalized approach to health and well-being, today launched its Healthy Aging campaign, which challenges outdated views of aging in support of living longer, healthier lives. Through proactive and personalized knowledge, lifestyle changes, and nutritional supplementation, it is possible to minimize health risks and achieve healthy aging – feeling one’s best at every age. From adolescence to youth to adulthood to golden years, a person’s health and nutrition needs change with each era of life and Thorne is empowering individuals to live healthier for longer.
To launch the campaign, Thorne is partnering with veteran tight end and current sportscaster, Greg Olsen. Olsen has used Thorne's best-in-class products since his days as a professional football player and remains a current user and brand advocate.
“Investing in my health has always been a priority as a pro athlete, especially in a sport that is incredibly physically demanding. My health needs have changed throughout the years, most recently in 2021, when I retired from professional football,” says Olsen. “Thorne offers a nutritional supplement product line that supports me at different stages of my life, whether that was training hard as a tight end or now, as a game analyst on TV. These days, my focus is on healthy aging so I can continue to keep up with my kids and enjoy the life I’ve built. I turn to Thorne as a trusted partner to have the products that are right for me, right now.”
To support his healthy aging goals, Olsen will take Thorne’s Biological Age test, which analyzes the impact that lifestyle, nutrition, illness, and genetics have had on the body and vital organs and continue to incorporate various Thorne products into his daily wellness routine. In addition, Olsen will donate proceeds from his campaign to his charitable organization, HEARTest Yard, which provides health-care support and services for families of babies born with a congenital heart disease.
“Although it’s impossible to change the number of times you have gone around the sun each year, it’s very possible to lower the rate at which your body experiences problems,” says CEO of Thorne HealthTech, Paul Jacobson. “No matter where you are on the aging spectrum, Thorne provides rigorous scientific testing and supplement solutions to help you take proactive steps toward optimized health and lowered risk of chronic disease.”
From testing that provides individualized data to education that teaches consumers about their bodies and products to support specific health goals and needs, Thorne’s deep portfolio of personalized offerings provides consumers with a uniquely comprehensive approach to healthy aging. All of Thorne’s Healthy Aging products, including Collagen Plus, NiaCel®, and ResveraCel®, contain an exclusive form of nicotinamide riboside (NR) that works in the cells to support a number of cellular processes, helping individuals age well, exercise better, stay clear-headed, and maintain normal metabolism and detoxification.
The Healthy Aging campaign will launch across numerous formats, including digital out-of-home (OOH), online video (including Hulu and YouTube), social media, influencer marketing, and more running March 28 through June 19.
