    SuperPure® is our breakthrough process for making the most effective and highly concentrated plant and herbal extracts. We use our green technology to achieve purity, safety, as well as optimal potencies for our plant and herbal extracts. Unfortunately, many in the industry prefer the cheapest method and rely heavily on harsh and potentially toxic petrochemicals to make their extracts. This practice brings with it some real limitations and safety concerns both for the consumer and for our planet. We find this petrochemical approach very irresponsible. It is our goal to create extracts and products that are pure, beneficial, and safe for the consumer, safe for the worker, and safe for the planet. If it doesn’t have all of these attributes, we aren’t doing our job!

    This symbol indicates a product is certified to be made with organic ingredients under the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). Our licensed certifier, Oregon Tilth, audits and verifies that the applicable ingredients have been grown and processed in full accordance with the strict USDA organic standards, which revolve around the use of safe and sustainable practices to restore, maintain, and enhance ecological harmony. These standards forbid the use of chemical and artificial fertilizers, pesticides, additives, GMOs, or synthetics of any kind. Our commitment to organic goes back to our very beginnings over 25 years ago. Long before there were any USDA federal regulations to classify and support organic agriculture, Mitchell May, our founder, understood the benefits of organic for both you and the planet. We continue this important mission today with hundreds of organically certified ingredients and thousands of acres converted to organic agriculture with our support.

    All of our products are gluten free, verified by ELISA testing, the gold standard for gluten testing in the industry. We test our raw materials and every lot of our finished products to ensure full compliance with the US FDA gluten-free labeling requirements. All our products are guaranteed to meet the strictest gluten-free guidelines set by the FDA in the US and all standards set in the EU. We take gluten allergies, gluten intolerance, and celiac disease very seriously. We are committed to bringing peace of mind and allergen-free products to those in need.
  •  
    From day one over 25 years ago, we have been 100% committed to a NO GMO Policy, meaning GMOs are unequivocally disallowed in any of our ingredients, products, processing, or facilities. This model policy was enacted long before the recent trends and growing consumer awareness. We continue to be fully dedicated to the absolute avoidance of all GMO ingredients. Both our USDA and EU certified organic standards 100% disallow the use of any GMO ingredients at any stage.
  •  
    Our kosher status is another indication of our dedication to quality standards that exceed the industry norms. Our facilities are fully inspected and certified to create kosher products. Any product with this symbol is certified Kosher-Parve by Orthodox Union. For over 80 years, OU has set the bar high for the integrity of kosher certification.

    Nature and science in perfect harmony—that’s what we’re always striving for. We believe nature knows best when it comes to delivering a WHOLE spectrum of naturally occurring phytonutrients. By using the most advanced green technology methods including our unique low-temp drying, oxygen-free processing, SuperPure® extraction, and our whole-food vitamin fermentation process, we are able to deliver the optimal quantities and potencies of important nutrients while fully maintaining the integrity of the “whole.” In this way, your body gets not just one or two nutrients but a living, vital SYNERGY of all the nutrients, just as nature intended.

    Products with this logo are considered vegan, indicating the complete absence of any animal or animal-derived ingredients in the product. We appreciate the values and commitment of those following a vegan diet and are proud to offer our collection of whole-food vegan supplements in line with these values.

    Long before USDA organic certification was available, the gold standard for obtaining pure, potent ingredients was to gather herbs, plants, and other ingredients from their native, wild environments. When done respectfully, wild harvesting continues to be a healthy and sustainable way to obtain high quality ingredients just as nature intended. We honor the tradition of sustainable wild harvesting whenever possible — like our vitamin C-rich camu camu berries from the lush rainforests of Brazil, our healing Manuka honey from their pristine hives in New Zealand, our calcium-rich red algae from the icy waters off Iceland, and many more! When a product features this icon, it means it contains at least one wild-harvested ingredient.
  •  
    All of our products are vegetarian. We appreciate and respect the values and commitment of those following a vegetarian diet and are proud to offer our collection of whole-food vegetarian supplements in line with these values.
  •  

    To verify their dairy-free status, we test all of our finished products for the presence of casein using ELISA technology. Casein is a milk protein and is commonly used to detect dairy allergen. We are very conscious of those with dairy sensitivities and allergies. We are committed to bringing peace of mind and allergen-free products to those in need.
