The Carol Bond Health Foods Brand

Howard and Carol Bond were in a Houston shopping mall in the year 1976. At a health food store, they were intrigued by the health-related possibilities of the vitamins and supplements on the shelves. Howard had achieved a substantial background in human anatomy, and Carol had studied the effectiveness of nutritional care. Based on conversations with the representative in the health food store, both Howard and Carol began a regimen. They quickly noticed an improvement in their vitality and vigor.

The startling effectiveness of the supplements prompted the pair to plan their own distribution center. In October, 1978, Carol and Howard Bond celebrated the opening of their first store. Research had shown them the type of products adults wanted but often couldn’t get. The result was custom-formulation of private label products such as Geri-Hi, which to this day is among Carol Bond’s top five sellers. People were tired of being sick and tired, Carol Bond explains. For that matter, the typical American- is tired most of the time. Geri-Hi was conceived and prepared to combat just that problem.

Excellence and Integrity since 1976

For decades, our excellent service and integrity have placed Carol Bond Health Foods in a unique position in the health and wellness arena.  Even though the business has changed hands and the name has changed, our commitment to quality and excellent service has never faltered.

Founder Howard Bond passed away in May of 1999. Carol Bond continued as a chief executive officer, maintaining the triple tradition of Carol Bond Health Foods until 2014 when she sold it to long-time employee of 25 years, Sherry Mettlen. Our hearts were saddened when Sherry Passed away in January of 2017. Upon the death of Sherry, the store inventory was sold to Betty Wells Runkle and The Health Fix Store originated.  Carol Bond Health Foods name exists as a branded trademark name for our current self-formulated product line.
