Nina Pesante MD is a practicing psychiatrist. She is proud to have been raised and educated in Upstate New York. Her “second” medical education began when she discovered the Institute for Functional Medicine in 2004. To learn more about Dr. Pesante, please visit her website http://www.ninapesantemd.com/.
Dr. Pesante and her family use many of the supplements she makes available in her store. She has taken vitamins since she was a girl, and values them as an integral tool to optimal wellness. She attends many conferences each year, some IFM, and other integrative organizations. Last year she also attended ILADS and our excellent local lyme conference.
At her conferences, she makes time to speak with the companies who manufacture premium quality supplements. She loves to inquire about their products and learn the various nuances in employing nutraceuticals.
She recently became aware of the problems that can arise after a product leaves the factory — counterfeiting, degradation of the product, receiving aged or mishandled supplements. These contingencies turn actuating a wise health move into an uncertain uneasy gamble.
After realizing that obtaining a great product is no guarantee of quality, she decided to embark on providing pristine supplements to her patients and the community. She is dedicated to bringing her knowledge and opportunity to obtain impeccable nutraceuticals.
Dr. Pesante is confident that proper use can improve healing with the researched and pharmacy grade products.

Jennifer is excited to bring her business experience to Lifestream Nutritionals and to share products with such impeccable lineage to others. It is through personal health struggles that Jennifer decided to make changes in her lifestyle.
In 2012, Jennifer made a commitment to remove pharmaceuticals that she took daily by changing her diet and incorporating exercise and yoga into her life. This shift created significant changes and inspired Jennifer to become a 200 HR Registered Yoga Instructor. Very quickly Jennifer realized that by sharing her personal experiences, she helped to inspire others to their own path of wellness. Jennifer then continued her growth to become a Baptiste Certified Instructor, and is currently working towards becoming a 500 RYT.
Jennifer is so happy to be part of the Lifestream Nutritionals team and to bring such high quality products to this area. She is looking forward to helping others uncover their healthiest self using nutraceuticals and not just pharmaceuticals!
