The shocking truth is that even the best multivitamins currently available on the market are not made directly from food. Many of these products contain chemical isolates derived from either “natural” sources that often times come from GMOs or other undesirable synthetic materials. Additionally, all those in the form of a tablet contain additional chemicals such as binders, fillers and coatings.
For many years, Garden of Life has researched a process by which to create a multivitamin line with the three basic criteria for its ingredients and products:
• Made from whole, real food
• Certified USDA Organic
• Non-GMO Project Verified.
Finally, after many years of dedication and progress, Garden of Life introduced mykind Organics – an entirely new Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified line of multivitamins made from real, whole foods and free of synthetic isolates, binders, fillers and other chemicals. It’s truly a breakthrough in multivitamins!
One of the aspects which makes Garden of Life’s mykind multivitamin line distinctive is the traceability of each of its ingredients and products. The multis start with organic, non-GMO seeds which are then grown on Certified Organic farms using biodynamic practices. The fruits, vegetables and herbs used in mykind Organics such as lemons, guava, curry leaves, amla, etc. are planted in organic soil and are fed organic compost and organic fertilizers. Long standing relationships with the organic farms and farmers allow for the traceability of each ingredient – where the seed originates, where it is grown, how it is grown and what the farming practices are, all the way to the farm workers and their working environment.
The extraction of the nutrients from the fruits, vegetables and herbs takes place in a Certified Organic facility using only pure water. This method of extraction utilizes a Patented Fresh Extraction Process which starts with fresh, organic produce added to clean, filtered water and lots of time to allow for the extraction of vitamins. At the end of the process, 10,000 liters of liquid has been reduced to between 100 and 200 liters of concentrated organic fruit and herb extract. The process and unique technique for obtaining the concentrated nutrients is protected by four international patents. The concentrated organic fruit and herb liquid extraction is then spray-dried resulting in 100% organic food powder. The process does not involve fermentation and there are absolutely no added ingredients of any kind, especially isolated vitamins. From the field to the powder, every batch is validated to be Certified USDA Organic and non-GMO Project Verified. From the powder to the tablet, the potency of each ingredient is tested and guaranteed to meet label claim. Then, the entire product is tested, verified and certified and the label claims are validated to make sure they match the contents of the bottle accurately. The mykind Organics line of supplements is also Certified Vegan, Certified Kosher, Certified Gluten-Free and Dairy-free.
Garden of Life takes its philosophy of providing a clean, certified organic, non-GMO product all the way to the tablet. The mykind Organics line of multivitamins uses Garden of Life’s patent-pending Clean Tablet TechnologyTM – an entirely new way of tableting with no synthetic chemicals acting like binders, fillers or flow agents and free of soy or corn derived ingredients. The tablets do not contain any synthetic, non-food ingredients such as magnesium stearate, stearic acid, microcrystalline cellulose, silicon dioxide, shellac, etc. Clean Tablet TechnologyTM uses only ingredients obtained from organic foods such as organic tapioca, organic brown rice extract, organic sunflower lecithin. It is the first ever 100% organic food tablet!
