How Pure & Traceable are Your Vitamins?
Can You Trace Their Purity & Process
all the Way Back to Their Seed?
By Garden of Life and Christine Dreher, CCN, CCH
How pure and traceable are your vitamin supplements? Can you trace their
purity and process all the way back to their seed? Have you ever wondered
what all is really included or missing from your supplements that you rely
on for optimal nutritional support for your health and wellness? Ever wonder
where all the ingredients come from or the testing standards for quality
assurance? How reassuring would it be for you to be able to know your
vitamin’s journey from seed to soil to harvest to you?
Everything and everyone comes from somewhere. In fact, if you’ve ever
traced your ancestry to see who’s been living in your family tree, then you
have seen firsthand how traceability works. For
Garden of Life, it’s just as important to have traceability in our
products—for your benefit and for ours. We stand behind our products because
we know where they come from, oftentimes up close and personal. Take our
myKind Organics pure, whole-food, organic, non-GMO vitamins for
example. myKind Organics are made only from real, nutritious food.
Here’s the traceability story behind them.
From Seed to Soil to Harvest to You
It all starts with organic, non-GMO seeds. The organic fruits, veggies
and herbs used in myKind Organics, such as the
Amla berries and the
holy basil leaves, all begin as organic, non-GMO seeds planted in
organic soil that is naturally rich in nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and
diverse probiotics and enzymes. Then, they’re fed organic compost and other
organic fertilizers, and are never sprayed with toxic chemical pesticides or
weed killers. All of this takes place on a unique farm in Southern India,
which employs local village women, paying fair wages while also supporting a
best-in-class local village school.
Before long, it’s time to harvest these organic fruits, veggies and
herbs. They are harvested—by hand—at their peak for maximum flavor and
nutrition, and then transported from the farm to the factory within 30
minutes of harvest!
From there, the organic fruits, veggies and herbs are turned into a
powder to make our myKind Organics line, with only fresh purified
water used to extract their nutrients—an innovative process with multiple
international patents associated with it.
During the whole process, best-in-class quality laboratories and
Ph.D.-bearing scientists test everything—from finger printing the herbals in
each blend to assaying the raw fruit for all of its nutrients to validating
the multiple vitamins and minerals that come from each extracted and
That’s the whirlwind tour of the traceability of
myKind Organics. In short, myKind Organics is food—food
grown in rich soil, harvested by hand, and, while it’s still fresh and
teeming with life, it’s made into powerful food powders that deliver almost
all of the vitamins and minerals we require every day. It’s farmed by people
for people—and it’s not engineered by a corporation, synthesized by a lab or
tableted with the latest, greatest and best-sticking glues.
But there’s even more to the traceability story of
Every batch is validated, and from the field to the powder, the organic
farming is verified and certified—free of genetically modified organisms (GMO’s)
and toxic chemicals, such as fertilizers and pesticides.
From the powder to the manufacturer, the potencies are tested and
guaranteed to meet the label claim. Likewise, the botanical sources are all
confirmed assays that are so precise that they show the part of the actual
plant that is used. For example, not just lemons, but lemon peels.
Additionally, from the manufacturer to the tablet, the organic and non-GMO
inputs and practices are certified again.
Then, the entire product is tested, verified and certified—USA Organic,
Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan.org and Gluten Free Certified. Plus, the
label claims are validated for Certificate of Analysis.
myKind Organics—traceable back to the seed—represents our
commitment which is to deliver real, pure, kind, meaningful nutrition that
is scientifically formulated, responsibly grown, third-party certified and
