Carlson Partners with Chicago Female Athletes

Carlson is excited to announce their partnership with Chicago soccer stars Defender Arin Wright and Midfielder Vanessa DiBernardo. Carlson was founded in Chicago in 1965 by Susan Carlson, and the company is still family- and female-owned today. Carlson is proud to support Chicagoland area women in sports who are dedicated to their health and wellness and is honored to play a part in their fitness routine.

“Not only does Carlson offer high-quality products that positively impact athletes’ fitness and recovery, but they are local to the city where Arin and Vanessa have competed for their entire careers and are a women-owned company,” says Mark Hochberg of Hochberg Sports Marketing.

“Carlson has been a game-changer for me,” said Arin Wright. “From Melatonin to ensure a good night’s sleep to Black Elderberry Gummies that help with my immune system and provide strong antioxidant support, Carlson really has it all to keep me fueled throughout the season. Being able to work alongside a women-owned company that values uplifting female athletes is really the cherry on top of it all.”

Arin and Vanessa are represented by Hochberg Sports Marketing, an agency that is focused on the representation of growing athletes and challenger brands. Primarily representing female athletes, they seek to raise awareness of women’s sports and its athletes through authentic brand alignment.

About Carlson

Carlson began in Chicago in 1965 as one woman’s mission to improve the health of her family by creating nutritional supplements with high-quality ingredients. Susan Carlson’s father suffered from heart issues but found relief after taking vitamin E. Inspired by this discovery and her background as a pharmacist, Susan created one of the first full lines of vitamin E worldwide, and the product line continued growing to meet the health needs of local families. Carlson began popping up on store shelves around Chicago, and the wave continued across the nation. 

In the early 1980s, Carlson helped launch the omega-3 market in North America, importing our first wild caught, sustainably sourced fish oils from Norway. Today, the commitment to helping families live a healthier lifestyle continues, as the next generation of the Carlson family leads the company. Carlson now offers more than 200 vitamins, minerals, omega-3s, kids' products, and other high-quality nutritional supplements. At Carlson, our family cares about the health of your family.
