Sacramento, California -

Sacramento, California - Nature's Rise, a nutrition and wellness company based in Sacramento, California, is proud to announce the unveiling of crucial discoveries made by their resident nutritionist, Dr. Sony Sherpa, MD, and CEO, David Longacre. Dr. Sony Sherpa has been researching the unhealthy eating habits adopted by college students in the US and has released her findings at the Nature's Rise Global Summit, held in Sacramento.

Dr. Sherpa's research suggests that college students make conscious decisions to buy unhealthy snacks due to convenience, affordability, and accessibility, further compounded by their susceptibility to food cravings when overwhelmed or stressed. This detrimental cycle can lead to weight gain, fatigue, and a lack of focus. She believes that the environment of college campuses should be more supportive of healthy eating habits so that students are not as likely to succumb to unhealthy choices.


Dr. Sherpa commented on the findings, saying: "It's no surprise that college students are embracing unhealthy eating habits. They are often short on time and money, which makes it difficult to prepare healthy meals or buy groceries. This is why it's so important that we continue to educate young people on how to make healthier food choices without sacrificing convenience or taste."

To this end, Dr. Sherpa advocates for offering healthier snack options in convenient locations throughout campus and providing nutritional education so students can make more informed choices about what they eat. In addition, she noted that students need to know about affordable alternatives like Lion's mane powder to improve their overall health.

Dr. Sherpa notes that college students often miss essential nutrients due to their lifestyle and eating habits compared to the general population. Her research reveals many college students consume large quantities of processed foods, sugary snacks, and energy drinks, which results in nutrient deficiencies, weight gain, and an increased risk of certain diseases.

Dr. Sherpa suggests switching traditional snack options with healthier alternatives to combat this issue. In addition to introducing more nutritious snack options in campus dining halls and convenience stores, Dr. Sherpa also recommends that colleges create educational campaigns centered around healthy eating.

These campaigns could include informational pamphlets distributed throughout campus and workshops or seminars to teach basic nutrition knowledge and tips for making healthier food choices on a budget. Additionally, these campaigns should be tailored to meet the needs of the college student lifestyle by addressing common issues such as late-night snacking, meal prepping ahead of time, dining hall availability, and the benefits of switching sugary drinks for healthy mushroom teas. By taking these steps towards improving student nutrition on campus, Dr. Sherpa believes colleges can empower students to make healthier food choices for life-long benefits.

In response to Dr. Sherpa's findings, Nature's Rise CEO David Longacre shared his thoughts on the matter. "At Nature's Rise, we believe that providing healthier options to young people is essential for their physical and mental wellbeing," said Longacre. He added that Nature's Rise is committed to developing natural snacks and beverages that can provide the necessary nutrition while still tasting great and being affordable.

This latest study from Dr. Sherpa underscores the importance of promoting healthier dietary choices among college students, especially during stressful times like exams or midterms. Nature's Rise is determined to make a difference in this area and help ensure young adults access healthy snacks and beverages. For more information about Nature's Rise, visit
