Candice Nicole, Founder/President
Candice Nicole is the Founder and President of HUmineral and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company as well as the lead in product and business development.
As a veteran of the health industry Candice have spent the last 15 years working in different capacities, including, formulation, sales, marketing, branding and distribution. After successfully growing and establishing three different health and wellness companies, but feeling as the focus was not on helping people, Candice was ready to take it to the next level and educate more people to the benefits of HUMATES, Humic Acid Minerals. In order to provide a better product to market Candice launched HUmineral.
Candice started out as she was seeking to find a way to live healthier, age healthier, have more energy, and many other of the same reasons that finds you browsing this site today, but nothing that she tried had as big effect as what Humic Acid Minerals had on her. Growing up in a holistic household, where health was always a focus and herbal supplements were part of everyday routine, Candice searched for natural way to get healthier and discovered Humic Acid Minerals through books, scientific articles and speaking with health and wellness professionals. Ms. Nicole learned of the powerful and natural benefits of Humic Acid Minerals and was astonished at the difference it made to her everyday life. She literally felt a difference within an hour and a half after trying Humic Mineral the first time. After such a profound effect Candice was hooked and HUmineral was born.
Ms. Nicole worked with several scientist, Ph.D.’s, doctors, and health food experts to reach the ideal formulations for products that would benefit the end-user, and create something that was good enough for Ms. Nicole to bring to market. Working tirelessly to develop the best products is an ongoing process as is HUmineral’s focus on bringing our listening audience the increased health and wellness it is craving, and we do this by providing HUmic and Fulvic Acid Mineral information and product.
“One of my most important passions and purpose has always been to help people. “To make a difference!” I believe we all would like to make a difference, and personally HUmineral makes it possible for me to live this passion. My purpose continues. Thank you.”
