Join our chat with the Founders of Needed, an LA-based nutrition company delivering better supplements for women. Hear how these two women went from Stanford MBA students to LA Entrepreneurs.

Ryan Woodbury and Julie Sawaya, co-founders and co-CEOs of Needed, met as next neighbors at Stanford’s graduate business school. They became fast friends and quickly realized their shared passion for nutrition. During this time, the two realized through nutritional testing that they were both hugely deficient in Omega-3, a critical nutrient for fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum. They dug into the research and learned they were far from alone—up to 95% of women are deficient in Omega-3, and yet, it’s missing from most prenatal vitamins. Ryan and Julie started Needed to meet their own nutritional needs and that of every mama-to-be.

Needed’s mission is to empower women to experience optimal nourishment through better identification of their nutrition needs, supplements that truly work in meeting those needs, and a supportive community of like-minded mamas and trusted health practitioners. Needed’s first products include an Omega-3 supplement that’s optimally tailored for a mama-to-be, and an at-home Omega-3 nutrient testing kit that helps women better understand their levels
