Ryan Mustone

Co-Owner | Store Manager

Ryan Mustone was Manager of Nutrition Stop for a period of three years between 2009-2012 after which he left for volunteer work on Hawaiian farms that ranged from avocado orchards and noni production grows to kava-kava and coffee operations which broadened his understanding of the other side of the industry.

For close to a decade, he served as a wholesale broker and educator in the natural products industry servicing over 150 health food stores across the Midwest for top manufacturers in the natural products space, learning directly from researchers at the forefront of health.

He is a dedicated Wim Hof practitioner, avid hiker, canoeist, world traveler, father, and husband. His mother battled cancer on and off over his childhood that sparked his interest in alternative healing that led him down the natural path enriching his mind with holistic solutions to heal.

He loves canoeing, backpacking, hiking, Phish, and is dedicated to inspiring folks to remember we have an innate ability to heal, naturally.
