Ron Beckenfeld, President
Ron Beckenfeld, a native of Los Angeles and the founder of Continental Vitamin Company, began distributing natural dietary products out of the trunk of his car at Gold’s Gym four decades ago. Ron’s own pursuit of health and personal success in weight training were clearly the inspiration for him to begin distributing products for small manufacturers, later moving into buying in bulk and eventually creating his innovative Superior Source brand featuring the MicroLingual® delivery system. Ron prides himself on keeping a local feel for his Los Angeles-based company in spite of an increasingly regional and national presence for his award-winning MicroLingual® supplements
