Spotlight on Robbin and Terry Lynn, purveyors of fine teas, spices and treats
Southern California couple, Robbin and Terry Lynn, have one mission in mind when it comes to their entrepreneurial ventures: they’re bringing back simple. One way they are accomplishing this is through their company NTS Distribution, which provides organic teas, gourmet spices, delectable treats and other products that help promote a healthy lifestyle.
A passionate health advocate, Terry has struggled with health issues since birth. “I was an unhealthy baby and spent a lot of time in hospitals as a youth; they didn’t expect me to live. Despite all of that, I made it,” he shares. While he felt relatively healthy during his teens and twenties, two decades ago his health again became compromised. “My doctor at the time told me I needed to eat at least 15 fruits and veggies per day. Hearing that certainly piqued my interest in healthy eating,” he admits. “I became increasingly fascinated with how the food we eat affects our health.” Then in 2007 Robbin was diagnosed with gluten intolerance and candida overgrowth. “It really opens your eyes. We became avid label readers and really focused on all the things we could do to stay healthy, including being extra mindful of what we put in our bodies. We’ve become a society of convenience and we’re losing our health because of it,” she says.
