In October, 2002 I discovered Primal Defense, Omegazyme and Perfect Food, and experienced the dramatic difference they made on my health. We found that we needed to open a health food store so we could help a dear friend with cancer get the wonderful product, RM-10. As a result, we started to learn about the difference between standard chemical-based vitamins and whole-food vitamins. The difference is the same as the difference between taking a pill for dinner or eating a healthy meal of fresh vegetables, whole grains and protein! Whole-food vitamins are made from real food. Yes, you have to take more pills to get the same nutrition, because you are not taking a chemical made in some scientist’s laboratory, you are swallowing real food that has been concentrated, preserved and fermented into a truly nutritional supplement.
Garden of Life’s mission statement says: “Whole food nutrition, from organically grown sources, is more beneficial for health than isolated nutrients. A traditional diet that includes the consumption of live foods, particularly those containing probiotics, enzymes, and products of their fermentation, is the foundation for a healthy lifestyle.” And that is how they make their supplements.
In addition to this wonderful concept of nutrition through real foods, the Garden of Life company is a Christian based company. So, Jordan Rubin is a strong Christian, the sales people that I deal with on a daily basis, the accounting people, nearly everyone I have encountered at Garden of Life share my faith. Now, this is not vital to do business, but it makes things a whole lot more comfortable for me.
Since we started selling whole-food supplements by Garden of Life, we have found some other important ways to share health and nutrition with our customers. These include two other whole-food supplement companies, New Chapter and Healthforce Nutritionals. Both of these companies are high-integrity manufacturers of whole-food nutritional supplement and herbal therapeutics.
In addition to the nutritional supplements, we discovered that what you put on your skin is as important as what you put in your body. The skin is the largest organ in the body and current research proves that it passes an amazing percentage of chemicals right on through to the blood stream! So we have found two companies that manufacture high quality, natural and organic products to put on your skin: Aubrey Organics and Miessence (from Australia).
The world is finding out the hard way how dangerous chemicals, toxins, pesticides and antibiotics are to our health and the health of our planet. Health Food Emporium is learning and changing every day to further help our customers find the way to better health, nutrition and wellness. Thank you for sharing the journey with us.
