There are “Longevity Hot Spots” in the world where obesity is unheard of; places where the residents have no word in their vocabulary for diabetes, cancer is rare and the people regularly live healthy vital lives well into their 90s and even 100s. Understanding them maybe the key to discovering the fountain of youth.
A lifelong entrepreneur and expert in wellness and longevity, William King has founded numerous businesses that were eventually acquired by both public and private companies. Along the way, King has held numerous executive positions including: Founder/CEO of 900 Solutions Inc., President/CEO of Voice + Tel of Austin and Founder of Akea, LLC. As a result of a skiing accident and subsequent pharmaceutical dependency, King was left with a variety of chronic debilitating diseases for which western medicine had no remedy. He was able to restore his health using alternative methods such as juicing, detoxification and diet. In 2008 King combined his vision and experience in the areas of health and wellness with his keen business and branding acumen to drive the creation and success of Akea, LLC—a lifestyle wellness company based on research of longevity hot spots. During his time with Akea he conceptualized and co-created an organic, fermented, whole food nutritional supplement and a lifestyle wellness program centered on the diets of the healthiest people on earth. In 2013, the company was sold to a public entity in the health and wellness space. In 2016 King created the FastBlast, a revolutionary weight-loss system based on Intermittent Fasting that incorporates a nutritional delivery system in a foil squeeze pouch. The first product is Banana-Berry Blast, consisting of a proprietary blend of super-foods including organic fruits and vegetables, protein and healthy fat. The product is designed to keep energy levels high, decrease hunger and boost metabolism. All in only 109 calories per serving. A former professional musician, King enjoys boating, snowboarding and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. He and his wife Annette have been married for 24 years and live in Raleigh, NC with their son Liam. thenutracompany.com
