Why Garden of Life

Why Garden of Life

What Sets Them Apart


Empowering Extraordinary Health® is not just a mission statement to be used on their website or advertisements. The sole purpose of Garden of Life is and always will be to empower you, our consumers, with the tools necessary to achieve extraordinary health. And, at the same time, ensure that we are offering clean, traceable, clinically studied ingredients in the most sustainable way possible.

Their process is not the same as many nutritional supplement companies out there. They believe in whole food ingredients, in traceability, in third-party certifications, and in accountability. As fanatical as they are over what goes into their products, they are even more obsessed about the things they keep out of them. You won’t find synthetic ingredients, artificial flavors or colorings, binders or fillers. They're uncompromising about your health. That’s what they are all about.


Four Principles That Guide Their Process at Garden of Life®


Science of Whole Food

The Science of Whole Food


Your body was created to eat, process, and derive its nutrition from food—real, healthy food.  So, when they create their products, they start by looking at food. What is the “good stuff” in the highest quality food that we are missing in our diets? Which of those foods have the greatest potential to impact—and empower—extraordinary health?




Traceability is key to what makes Garden of Life’s® products so special. Traceability starts with knowing where each and every ingredient in our products comes from and getting to know each and every source: where it’s grown; the farming practices; how they pay and treat the farm workers—everything. Just look at their formulas. Their mykind Organics line, co-founded with Alicia Silverstone, is made with Organic fruit and herbs—every single product in this line is Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Verified by the Non-GMO Project. It’s so important to start with fruits and vegetables that are grown without harmful chemicals. They want to get the good stuff from foods that are grown without any of the bad stuff. They do it because it’s the only way they know to deliver on their promise of Empowering Extraordinary Health®.


Clean is Healthy

Clean is Healthy


They start with what goes IN their products—true, whole food ingredients. But they don’t stop there. They also pay very close attention to what they keep OUT of them. And once again, they look at food—real nutrition food. When was the last time you picked up an apple, turned to read the ingredients, and saw a list of chemicals? If it’s not in your food, then they don’t want it in their supplements.
