TLC x Fempreneurs Series: Dr Menka Gupta (Nutra Nourish)

In this special column called the “TLC x Fempreneurs Series”, we will be featuring inspiring Female Entrepreneurs (Fempreneurs) in short.

Dr Menka Gupta shared how she started NutraNourish:
From very early childhood, I’ve been deified by doctors and their huge role in a community. I was especially attracted by their selflessness, desire to help others and a strong sense of empathy. This belief motivated me to become a doctor myself and it acts as a constant reminder of my purpose to create a healthier and more vibrant community. While practising as a doctor in London and Singapore, I became interested in the role of food and lifestyle to support longevity, energy, mental clarity and happiness. This motivated me to create Nutra Nourish 6.5 years ago. It is a functional medicine and nutrition practice ​​offering a personalised approach to address the root cause of disease.
