Following this philosophy, we start with whole foods—foods you might find in the grocery store, like peas, radishes, and beets. Then like any good cook, we prepare these ingredients in a manner that safeguards their nutritional value. The resulting whole food ingredient is then added to a complex formula that may include plant and animal extracts, desiccates, or other targeted ingredients to create the best dietary supplement for each health indication.
But what exactly is a whole food supplement?
A complex formula that includes plant and animal extracts, desiccates, or other ingredients as required to create the best dietary supplement for each health indication.Whole food supplements may include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. Some of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm, including alfalfa, barley grass, beets, Brussels sprouts, buckwheat, kale, kidney beans, oats, pea vine, Spanish black radish, and sweet potatoes. This allows us to control the quality of these ingredients from seed to supplement. Individual components may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying.
Currently, there is no regulatory definition. Companies are free to make up their own to suit their needs. This lack of clarity has led to a lexicon of misleading terms and more importantly, a perplexed public. As the world’s first company to make whole food supplements, we bring authority and leadership to the subject.
The goal of all whole food supplementation is to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature. After all, it is in this whole food state that nutrition is typically harnessed and presented to the body.
