Håkon Volden

Founder & CEO of Aarja Health


In my life and career, I have relied on my instincts and the belief that people have a responsibility to do good things. I believe that creating Aarja Health to support all our wellbeing and to make a difference in our quality of life is probably the best gift I can give to others. What comes to health, we all need to take the responsibility for our own choices and actions. I'm thankful for this opportunity to make the best products together with a dedicated team to help people live happier lives through nature's inherent goodness.

Elisabeth Strifeldt

Brand Manager


I believe in a holistic approach to healing. What is on your mind, what is on your dinner plate, how much do you use your body, and spending time outside in nature, and of course - supplements that works. At least I have finally found true healing when all of these aspects are in place. Why do we eat food? To get essential vitamins and minerals, so that our body works properly. But when the food is of bad quality, then we definitely need extra supplementation.

Diego Nazar

Product Designer


I love Aarja's products! Each of our products goes through a very strict quality process, so you really can trust that they are premium quality. On a personal level, I have been always thinking about what is best for my family when I have bought supplements. When we started creating Aarja's products I always asked myself: can I feel proud of this combination? Is it truly efficient and 100% clean? Are these really the best ingredients we can get? Now, I can proudly say definitely YES on all Aarja's products. You must try them!

Meet also the rest of our superteam who make sure your supplements have premium quality and they are properly made – with love!
