About Us

Russell Ames of Yelm, Washington acquired Dr. Cranton’s BestVitamins, DBA BestVitamins, in late November 2010. Jessica Ames, the VP of Mount Rainier Clinic, Inc. (founded by Dr. Elmer Cranton), had worked at the clinic for six years when it closed its doors that winter. Jessica worked intimately with the line of nutritional supplements offered at the clinic and gained invaluable knowledge by working directly with Dr. Cranton and his son John Cranton, ARNP. The opportunity arose to purchase the vitamin portion of the clinic, and Russell seized it. Since that time, Russell and Jessica have maintained the original product line.

The Ames’ have not changed any of the very carefully researched and formulated items that Dr. Cranton created; however, they have humbly asked for feedback, and listened to their customers in order to add new items to the line. They have maintained low prices, and even decreased product’s prices, in spite of annual manufacturer’s increases. BestVitamins began using Priority shipping through the United States Parcel Service to ensure timely delivery of shipments which includes Saturday deliveries. Russell and Jessica are grateful for the opportunity to own and operate such a wonderful business. They strive to increase customer satisfaction while maintaining the quality standards set forth by their predecessor.

As always, BestVitamins welcomes feedback and encourages you to email us at info@bestvitamins.com or call (360) 485-3063 with any comments or questions.
