Fred Ganjian, B.S., M.S., RPh has spent most of his life compounding formulas, researching and practicing pharmacy. He is dedicated to developing compounds that help people by using natural ingredients to make lives better. He believes you can find all of the answers in nature.
Fred learned formulating with natural elements at a young age from his father and grandfather, who were pharmacists, starting when he was only 6 years old. By the time he was 17 he had sold his first formula for geriatric dry skin. The product was formulated from ocean salt water and naturally made lanolin and became a huge success. This success was his key to pharmacy school in Brooklyn, NY where he also earned a Master’s Degree in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing.
Fred’s second major research success was a vitamin and herbal compound to promote longevity and anti-aging. The product is still marketed today and he serves as a consultant to the company.
Fred researched Auranafin (Oral Gold) for arthritic patients and delivered his research to a meeting of the Rheumatoid Arthritis Association.
Fred worked as a consultant for major companies such as Smith, Klein & French (SKF), Kaufman Pharmaceuticals, Neergard Pharmaceuticals, etc. His early work for SKF resulted in huge savings by advising them not to market a product containing cimetidine that would have negatively affected drug adsorption in the body. His article on the results of his research was published by the Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences (Vol. 69, No. 3 March 1980). (PubMed)
Returning to compounding in 1990 Fred opened a service for veterinarian medicine in Centereach, NY and continues to be involved as an adviser.
Arriving in California in 2004, Fred worked to develop Bryant Ranch Prepack, a company that prepacks pharmaceuticals for sale by doctors, into a multi-million business. In so doing, he worked with a wide range of pharmaceuticals and was named “Pharmacist of the Year” by Kroger/Ralphs while advising them in their pharmacy program.
