1. ARE YOUR FINAL PRODUCTS FREE OF PESTICIDES, HERBICIDES & HARMFUL CHEMICALS?
Labels of “Natural” or “Organic” simply will not cut it.
They cannot just “start out” Organic. The “Organic” farm the ingredients were grown on tells you nothing of the finished product. There is contamination from air, trucks going by the Organic farm, water. There is then processing which can add a whole host of contaminants. The pill or shake that you put in your mouth must be without pesticides, herbicides, metals, harmful chemicals, GMO, antibiotics, growth hormones. HOW DO THEY PROVE THE FINISHED PRODUCT IS FREE OF THESE CONTAMINANTS?
2. What are the ingredients in the product and what country did the ingredients come from? 90% of supplement ingredients come from China where banned pesticides & chemicals are used. Remember, when it’s “natural” & out of the ground, the chemicals & sprays come along for the ride and will never leave.
3. Is each bottle (not random testing) of the supplements proven to be free of pesticides/heavy metals and lead? Where is the scientific proof to back that information up & who tests? It must be a 3rd party not profiting from the company.
4. Who is doing the clinical studies on their product? It must be associations not receiving profits from sales of the product. Ask for copies. Must be more than 1 or 2. Which doctors are on their research board & make sure the doctors don’t OWN the company.
5. Have results from studies of this product been published in trusted medical journals? Ex: Clinical studies must be on the bottled juice, not clinical studies on berries before juicing. Studies must be done on the company’s bottle of Calcium, not on general calcium. Ex: of trusted medical journals: JAMA, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Do not trust journals which are made up or have no meaning in the scientific community. They are made up marketing tools.
