When Niki started making inner-ēco™ kefir, one of the first people she offered it to was her friend Barbara, whom she'd met in 1994 when they were elementary school teachers in the Denver, Colorado area.
Barb had had digestive issues all her life, and when she tried inner-ēco™ kefir, it was like water on a desert. No doctor had EVER been able to help her digestive issues, and inner-ēco™ was the only thing that ever honestly worked. She became an immediate fan. Such an ardent fan, in fact, that when Niki called her in 2008 to talk about taking inner-ēco™ to the next level, Barb wanted to partner with her. "I believe it's an honest product, and if it worked for me, it will work for others," she said.
Niki and Barb started by making the kefir together in their own kitchens. On March 12, 2008, they established N&B,LLC and manufacturer inner-ēco™ in an FDA-certified kitchen.

As one example, inner-ēco™ is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of others, all over the world, through its Free, Feed & Educate initiatives. On this front, Barb and Niki, co-founders of inner-ēco™, founded the S.T.O.P (Slavery That Oppresses People) campaign, which dedicates a portion of inner-ēco™ proceeds to securing freedom, food, medical care and education to the people of Sudan, Africa and anywhere else in the world where persecution and oppression is prevalent. Through these efforts, enough money has been raised to free tens of thousands of slaves in southern Sudan thereby replacing slavery with freedom and hope. The organization was also instrumental in getting the Sudanese Peace Act signed into law.
