There comes a time when the motivation to do something for the betterment of mankind propels individuals to step out of their comfort zone and pursue a vision in service of the greater good, at all costs. Matthew Nickerson, the Co-Founder and CEO of the successful performance nutrition brand VASO6, is one such individual whose ambition and vision led him to satisfy a driving purpose of bringing massive health transformations on a global scale.

Matthew Nickerson hails from a middle-class American family. As the youngest of three children, he enjoyed school and participated in many sports, where he learned the qualities of persistence and determination from his parents, siblings, coaches, and teammates. Matt was an active and energetic child, determined at an early age to follow in his siblings’ footsteps to succeed in school, extracurricular activities, and sports, so he channeled his quiet nature and physical strength into a variety of scholastic and athletic endeavors and in time became a successful student-athlete.

In his late teens, tragedy struck this charismatic, happy-go-lucky kid, in an event which would completely change his outlook on life. During his senior year of high school, Matthew was shot in the chest at point-blank range in a senseless act of gun violence, as he tried to shield his friend during a random altercation. Matthew saved his friend but sustained a gunshot wound which left him injured and weakened and unable to resume his high school football season. This incident gave him a unique perspective into the fragility of life, planting the seeds which later compelled him to enter the field of wellness and healthcare, and the creation of his brand, VASO6.

Nickerson went on to play quarterback at WNMU where he wore the number six on his jersey. After earning a Bachelor’s of Science Degrees in Sociology and Criminal Justice, Nickerson dedicated his attention to the field of medical device, where he learned a means to improve people’s quality of life. After spending countless hours in hospitals, operating rooms, and laboratories, Nickerson launched his patented green tea performance extract in September 2017 with the goal to improve health for humans and animals. He crafted theories, products, studies, and a means to build human and animal health by vastly improving their quality of life through a green tea-based supplement which enhanced blood flow, and later became known as VASO6. Nickerson’s labs continue working to innovate and toward positively changing the existing state of the nutrition industry, including beverages, dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods.

VASO6 has grown as a global brand due to Nickerson’s honest and painstaking efforts to follow the science, back the research and development with data from clinical trials, and provide a wide variety of products for human and animal consumption. With a vision to enhance human and animal lives, VASO6 has risen to become a trusted brand which is enjoyed by tens of millions of health-conscious consumers around the world. His ultimate goal is for VASO6 to be the factor that brings positive change to all those it serves, leading to a healthier and happier lifestyle. With Nickerson’s groundbreaking ideas and innovations backed by human data and absolute proof of concept, the possibilities are limitless!Opinions expressed here are the opinions of the author.
