WHY QUALITY SOURCING MATTERS

To determine the quality of any consumable – be it food, medicine, vitamins, or supplements – sourcing is most often the primary indicator of purity and effectiveness.

Sourcing dictates quality, quality drives effectiveness.

Whether you’re comparing organic produce to mass harvested produce.. or free-range, grass fed beef to $1 hamburger patties.. the highest quality products are meticulously sourced to deliver the most nutrients with minimal contaminants.

There are cheaper alternatives to any ingredient or product – but with unverified sourcing comes unknown processing procedures, undeclared contaminants and decreased effectiveness.

In a study published by Canadian researchers, 44 bottles of different supplements sold by 12 companies were tested for label accuracy. They found that many of them were not what they claimed to be, with one-third containing outright different ingredients.

Many others were rich with filler ingredients like rice, soybean, and wheat to dilute the advertised ingredients.

ASK THREE QUESTIONS

I challenge you to research any supplement and ask yourself these questions:

  1. What are ALL of the ingredients?
  2. Where are they sourced?
  3. How were they harvested or produced?

TRANSPARENCY IS KEY

If you cannot easily answer those questions, or if the information is not readily available, there’s a reason why.

Don’t fall for cheaper products that can’t proudly say where and how their products are made. Poor harvesting and manufacturing techniques produce less effective supplements.

SCIENCE BEHIND EACH INGREDIENT

LIFE products contain specific ingredients to elicit specific benefits. We extensively research each ingredient to ensure safety, efficacy, and quality.

Also, our DAV is ethically harvested and cold processed to create a superior product for maximum effectiveness.

The three pillars of LIFE are knowing:

  • Where our product is sourced
  • Which harvesting techniques are used
  • How our product is processed

This ensures that all of our products are of the highest quality.

Knowing where our product is sourced, which harvesting techniques are used, how our product is processed are the three pillars of LIFE that ensure our products are of the highest quality possible.

“Product substitution occurred in 30/44 of the products tested and only 2/12 companies had products without any substitution, contamination or fillers. Some of the contaminants we found pose serious health risks to consumers.” – BMC Medicine 2013

Sourcing is the foundation of high quality supplements
