About Hi-Health


Our start

Hi-Health is a family-owned business that began over 40 years ago with one man's dream that vitamins, supplements and natural products would enhance the quality of life and help others to "Live Healthy Everyday".

Hi-Health's first retail store was opened on April 1, 1972 in the retirement community of Sun City, AZ, in the LaRonde Shopping Center. Fitness celebrities Jack and Elaine LaLanne would become friends and Adelle Davis, the "mother" of the health food industry attended Hi-Health's first health expo in the Sundome Arena.

An avid supporter of Hi-Health, Jerry Colangelo, General Manager of the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team, chose Hi-Health's Heritage Pro Pack Vitamins as their official "team vitamin".


32 stores are operational by 1982 and Hi-Health expands its line of private label products. Heritage and Legacy brand vitamins & supplements became Ultra Plan and Ultimate-Plus. All private label supplements are formulated with the latest scientific research and the finest quality ingredients. Hi-Health is well known for its specialty formulations such as AL-10 for allergies, Zentho for joints & inflammation, Premier Formula for Ocular Nutrition for eye health, Priam for male virility and X-Rated for sports & fitness, to name a few.

In 1988, Paul Harvey made Hi-Health nationally famous by advertising them as being the place to go to buy supplements to aid hearing, eyesight, memory, joint health and general well-being with science from the National Institutes of Health studies. He was a pioneer in promoting the benefits of age-related supplements.


In 1990, the company moved to its current headquarters in Scottsdale, AZ. There they packaged and shipped their own private label products as well as were the distributors to their many stores.

In 1998, Hi-Health opened up its largest store at the Arizona Mills mall. The 25,000 sq ft store served as an anchor tenant for the shopping center complete with a juice bar and customer education center.


In 2012, Sy Chalpin passed away and his son Mitch became the company President. Before becoming president, Mitch was on the Hi-Health Board of Directors and he practiced law for 32 years.


Today, Hi-Health continues to develop the look of their stores with the same passion they have for developing the finest supplements, starting with its location at the Town & Country shopping center.
