I was personally quite excited to have Garden of Life be a part of FitBloggin & FitSocial this year. GOL is a company I buy quite a few products from including my lean protein…it’s called RAWfit and it’s yummy. I am not a raw eater…heck, I am not a perfect eater by any means (I may or may not have eaten my 8yr old’s cocoa crisps for breakfast this morning) but I do a pretty good job and am grateful for companies like Garden of Life who not only offer a variety of healthy products but they provide the supplements and support I need for when perfect eating options are not available….or it’s Tuesday and kids cereal seemed like a great idea 🙂
Why Garden of Life®?
The #1 brand in the Natural Products Industry, Garden of Life, is fanatical about food. We’re different that way. Whether we’re making a vitamin, a probiotic, or a protein powder, we always start with real foods and these (foods) provide our formulas the power to be their best.
We’re uncompromising about your health. Slow it down, make it by hand, grow it in rich, organic soil with enough sun, air, water and time for it to be its best. Harvest it when ready. Treat it with care. Turn it into a power-packed nutritious food supplement. That’s what Garden of Life is about.
Three principles guide what we make and how we make it:
The Science of Whole Food
Your body was created to eat, process, and derive its nutrition from food—real, healthy food. So, when we create our products, we start by looking at food. What is the “good stuff” in the highest quality food that we are missing in our diets? Which of those foods have the greatest potential to impact—and empower—extraordinary health?
Clean is Healthy
We start with what goes IN our products—true, whole food ingredients. But we don’t stop there. We also pay very close attention to what we keep OUT of them. And once again, we look at food—real nutrition food. When is the last time you picked up an apple, turned to read the ingredients, and saw a list of chemicals? If it’s not in your food, then we don’t want it in our supplements. We use the following third-party (never self-affirmed) certifications to prove we are clean!
Traceability starts with knowing where each and every ingredient in our products comes from and getting to know each and every source: where it’s grown; the farming practices; how they pay and treat the farm workers—everything.
Just look at our formulas. Our mykind Organics line is made with organic fruit and herbs—every single product in this line is Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. We do it because it’s the only way we know to deliver on our promise: to Empower Extraordinary Health®.
