The Transformation Factory on 'Shark Tank': What is the cost, who is the founder, and is the sea moss gel really effective?
If you're someone who hates popping pills, then The Transformation Factory's Sea Moss-based gel might just be the answer to your nutritional and health woes!
Thanks to our super-busy lifestyles, health often takes a backseat. From skipping lunches due to a deadline or super-long meeting to missing out on regular health check-ups, the hustle culture spares us with hardly any time to focus on our health let alone ensuring we meet the daily nutrition requirements, making us all dependent on popping multivitamin tablets.
If you're someone who hates popping pills, then The Transformation Factory's Sea Moss-based gel might just be the answer to most of your nutritional and health woes! Sea moss is a wholefood source of minerals containing 92 of the 102 trace minerals found in the body. The Transformation Factory's founder Alexiou Gibson will be pitching for his unique superfood-based brand in the upcoming finale episode of 'Shark Tank' Season 13. While we will have to wait and watch to see if the Sharks — Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary, and guest Shark Kevin Hart, take an interest in this obscure superfood based gel, in the meanwhile, you can read all about the brand and its founder here.
What is The Transformation Factory?
The Transformation Factory’s wildcrafted sea moss or “Irish sea moss” is an organic, vegan superfood that can be enjoyed by the entire family. "Our sea moss is “wildcrafted” which means that we harvest it from its natural “wild” habitat in unpolluted waters without the use of any type of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. As part of an overall mission to support the positive transformation of lives, the Transformation Factory sells products that promote physical, emotional, and spiritual health," states the brand's website.
The sea moss used by the brand is sustainably harvested using socially responsible and wild harvesting practices. Once the sea moss is harvested, it is transferred to a vegan kitchen where it is blended in alkaline spring water and made into a gel. To enhance the subtle flavors of the sea moss, various fruit flavors are added to the gel to make it more delicious and appealing to the consumers. Aside from providing several trace minerals to our body, regular consumption of this superfood has various other added benefits to our body such as helping with weight loss, relieving joint and muscle pains post-workout, etc.
Who is the founder?
The Transformation Factory is the passion of founder Alexiou Gibson. In his current role as CEO and President, he leads the company as a continuation of his own transformation from one seeking answers, to one providing answers. Alexiou started his transformation in 2014 when his physician told him that he would not live to see thirty. Weighing in at over 500 lbs. at 19 years of age, he was told that his body was in disrepair and he was too far gone to make any significant changes to his health. At that time his body was riddled with multiple chronic conditions. He also had respiratory conditions making it difficult to walk long distances.
Now, years later, Alexiou has completely changed his lifestyle, lives a vegan lifestyle, powers through dips and squats, and finds any opportunity he can to coach, inspire and encourage. "TTF is the culmination of his more than 10 years of battling health issues. He has used every disappointment, achievement, heartbreak, success, and learning moment to create the concept of TTF as a resource and inspiration for those trying to become their best selves. The TTF website will become is a depository of information, tools, support communities and products. These are things that Alexiou feels would have helped him a great deal when he started his “Alexiou 2.0” journey. The good news is that “Alexiou 2.0” has culminated into The Transformation Factory – a place that will give everyone the tools they need to succeed on their own journeys," stated the brand's website.
Alexiou worked an intern at NASA and received the prestigious Martin Luther King leadership award, Global Citizen Award, and Buick Engineering Scholarship. Aside from The Transformation Factory, Alexiou also runs a full-service production company called Highly Ambitious Studios (HAM).
