Overbeck didn't create or discover Marmite. He was involved in the brewing industry at this time and was an inventor but the Marmite company's website gives the credit to a German scientist name of Liebig in 1902. Overbeck made his money from a device that gave mild electric shocks named the Rejuvenator, that he claimed stopped and reversed the aging process and cured people of many ailments. He took out many adverts in daily newspapers and magazines with outrageous claims but they paid off and he became a very weathy man.
