About the American Nutrition Association

The American Nutrition Association began in 1972 as the Nutrition for Optimal Health Association (NOHA). We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization whose mission is to promote optimal health through nutrition and wellness education. For 40 years, we have been at the cutting edge of science-based nutrition, educating both laypeople and professionals about the health benefits of nutrition and wellness.

We have hosted hundreds of expert nutrition presentations from such luminaries in the healthcare field as Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling, to name but one of hundreds of experts who have embraced our mission.

Additionally, we have engaged in numerous other nutrition outreach programs, such as:

  • Over 35 years of our exceptional quarterly newsjournal
  • Nutrition programs in local schools
  • Publications including a healthy cookbook, a rotation diet, an optimal food chart and recommended reading list
  • Classes on basic nutrition, cooking and preventive healthcare
  • Video and audio library of our lectures
  • Speakers bureau for presentations to schools, community groups and other local organizations
