One of the most difficult things, when we are shopping for both food and supplements these days, is that a lot of people try to avoid glyphosate, the cancer-linked chemical that is used in the proprietary Roundup weedkiller formula from the Monsanto Company.
Glyphosate, has won a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2015, and shows in everything like rainwater samples also baby food and drinking water, not to mention in some of the most popular foods on the market.
When we go and buy supplements, a lot of people do not know which company is to trust these days, especially considering a recent report that most supplements found in major U.S. stores like Wal-Mart are packed with cheap fillers and may not even contain any of the plant-based ingredients they claim to on the package.
The good news is that there are lots of fast-growing natural and organic supplement companies that we can choose food from, like the one that is in New Hampshire that just became the first of its kind to achieve full glyphosate-free certification.
Supplement Brand Announces Itself Free of Monsanto Chemical
According to this article from the website SustainablePulse.com, the company in question, MegaFood out of of Manchester, NH, has achieved glyphosate-free certification on its entire line of supplements, ranging from Vitamin C blends to Multi-Vitamins for Men and Women.
This makes them the number one supplement company that has achieved that distinction, in large part thanks to a supply chain that includes organic growers like Lundberg Family Farms, Uncle Matt’s Organic, Foxy Organic and others.
The company also is a supporter of six different charities including Florida Organic Growers, the National Young Farmers Coalition and more.
MegaFood has been certified by The Detox Project, a research and certification organization that counts SustainablePulse, one of the leading GMO and organic news websites, as its media partner.
“We’re honored to be the first supplement company with a completely glyphosate residue free certified line of products,” said Robert U. Craven, the president and CEO of FoodState, Inc., which is the parent company and manufacturer of MegaFood.
“Our company was founded on: a commitment to quality and purity above all, so that we can provide our customers with the most authentic nourishment possible,” he added according to the article.
MegaFood can be mostly be found at health food stores, and also on the website they have, and also on Amazon.com, featuring supplements made from a wide variety of whole foods to provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and more.
Some of their most popular supplements include a Women’s One Daily multi-vitamin, Turmerric Strength, and Blood Builder, which is aimed at reversing iron deficiencies, especially in women.
