Every great idea starts when someone notices a problem.
Kanguru began as a firm belief in the mind of founder and creator, Australian Ophthalmologist and Surgeon, Dr David Kitchen: there had to be something better than just a sugary energy hit.
This mission became his passion. Finally, after four years, countless hours and exactly 1,982 samples, Kanguru was ready – the perfected Australian vitality drink, made using only the finest and most effective ingredients, in beneficial amounts, with real, tangible benefits for body and mind.
Beyond energy, Kanguru redefines what a vitality drink can be, giving you what you need to be more, every day.
Aside from his highly successful career as a leading ophthalmologist, Kanguru founder Dr. David Kitchen had built a name as an entrepreneur, philanthropist and independent thinker with a love for physical and mental fitness, a full family life, and being more.
With pursuits and goal setting as varied as international travel, learning a second language and achieving a black belt in karate, energy to think and act is important to David. A regular consumer of energy drinks, he became curious about whether there was a more functional and healthier solution out there – one which would legitimately support an individual’s wellbeing and might actually taste refreshingly good as well.
Finding a market filled with misinformation, dubious benefit claims and often little or no evidence for ingredients used, David concluded the only way to enjoy a truly balanced, multi-purpose botanical based drink developed through a considered and evidence-based approach, was to create his own.
A calculated risk taker, he set out to create a drink so good because of its functionality, benefits and taste, you would want to drink it daily. Four years on, David introduced the world to Kanguru – his perfected wellbeing drink.
David continues to run and operate his busy eye practices in Rockhampton and Gladstone, Queensland. He returns home to his wife and four daughters every day, proud in the knowledge that his efforts have evolved into something more – guilt-free, enjoyable, rewarding and beneficial.
