Fresh off the exciting news of a nomination for the NEXTY Awards at the upcoming Natural Products Expo West being held in Anaheim, California, which recognizes the most progressive, innovative, inspiring and trustworthy products in the natural products industry. Nelson’s very own Nelson Naturals will be polishing up their game with new reach and unprecedented exposure by achieving unique recognition in their class.

The NEXTY Awards are the pinnacle recognition of excellence in the natural products industry and are awarded to one stand out product in each of the 22 different categories.
