All three Co-founders have seen their health soar after eliminating caffeine and including superfoods into their diets...we are talking going from bedridden to dancing. Ashley, Max, and Matt created SUTRA to help individuals feel their best using the same beautiful superfoods that make them feel energized, clear headed, and truly alive.

Our vision for the future is to continue to educate millions of consumers on the benefits of superfoods and to take SUTRA global in 2019!

Ashley Strommen 

CEO + Co-founder + Lyme Disease Survivor

For years Ashley searched for a proper diagnosis, suffering from excruciating pain and deteriorating brain function that left her bedridden. After a Naturopath correctly diagnosed her with Chronic Lyme Disease and heavy metal poisoning, Ashley completely changed her lifestyle.

After learning the connection between disease and diet, she studied to became a Certified Nutritionist with NASM and cut out all gluten, dairy, sugar, and meat. Thanks to superfoods, Ashley is now in remission and Co-founded SUTRA to give hope to other chronic disease sufferers and allow men, women, and children to take health into their own hands.

Matt Tamasi

Head of Sales + Co-founder + Chronic Disease Survivor

In his mid 20's, Matt's health was failing. He had seen countless doctors for answers regarding digestive issues, chronic fatigue and brain fog, only to be pushed out the door with a prescription and no permanent solution. This seemingly endless search for a diagnosis led him to functional medicine where he uncovered the source of his issues. Proper nutrition became paramount, with superfoods being key to the process. By incorporating them into his diet, Matt was able to heal, which in turn improved his physical and mental health.

He is determined to educate others on the benefits of functional medicine so they can live healthier lives. This led him to co-found SUTRA, where he heads sales, with the goal of putting superfoods into the mugs of as many people as possible!

Max Altschuler 

Advisor + Co-founder + Former Caffeine Addict

Max was diagnosed at an early age with the digestive disorder Colitis. His mother, a yoga teacher and naturopath, recommended he try changing his diet to incorporate superfoods. Over the years he's experimented with many natural treatments that have minimized pain and inflammation, allowing him to live a normal life. 

As a serial startup early employee, Max worked like crazy to get companies off the ground. He depended on a few cups of coffee per day. Feeling the negative effects of too much caffeine, he quit suddenly. It's been 5 years since and he's been searching for an alternative as a hot, robust beverage until now.
