To best understand SISU, one must understand what ‘sisu’ means. The name is Finnish in origin and cannot be directly translated but can be expressed by strength and stubborn determination combined with stamina and courage, particularly in overcoming adversity.
More than 20 years ago Harlan Lahti, B.Sc. Pharm. started SISU when he recognized the need for high quality natural products that met the standards of the Canadian government and the discerning consumer.
Today, quality and innovation continue to be the cornerstones of SISU’s continued growth. SISU has become a vital part of the functional medicine movement that links research in basic sciences with emerging options in clinical care to create safe and effective treatments of complex, chronic medical conditions. As functional medicine looks for innovative ways to empower the body’s disease fighting mechanisms, informed health care professionals are turning to SISU’s high quality products as part of this new therapeutic process.
