The Use Of GMOs In Natural Health Products
(Calgary, AB) Life Choice, a nutraceutical manufacturer recently announced a price increase on its brand of top quality natural health supplements.
According to Life Choice owner and founder, Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND " prices for the the most pure, highest grade and top quality natural ingredients that can be used in natural health formulations have increased considerably within the last year. Until recently, we have been absorbing those cost to avoid a price increase to our customers."
Because the Life Choice brand has a life long commitment to therapeutic value and medicinal qualities, the alternative of not having a price increase, would of meant a substitute of a less valued and less expensive raw material into the formulation. If this were the case, the substitute material could very well, have ended up being, a raw ingredient contaminated by or associated with: a modified [risk] food group (GMO), a toxic chemical, sewage or sludge, a radiated substance etc...
According to Dr. Dahl, "we could of chosen to hold our prices firm and replaced our high end natural ingredients with less expensive "fillers" and other substances that have little or no medicinal value."
He continued, "Health Canada does not demand supplement manufacturers to use high quality ingredients (ie. non-GMO, products, or products free from sewer or sludge contamination). Actually, they do not care what quality goes into the supplements, as long as it has a certificate of analysis."
Dr. Dahl acknowledges that some of his competitors may have made the decision to focus more on 'price point' than quality. "Sure, it is quite possible that in order for some in the industry to hold their prices firm, they may have decided to substitute some of their raw materials with a less expensive and unproven GMO product."
He concluded, "however, that type of decision is not good enough for Life Choice, for we know better, and we have the obligation and commitment to our customers, for when they see a Life Choice product, results are expected; how can that be achieved with unproven raw material? It can’t and we will not entertain the idea."
All Life Choice natural supplements are clinically tested, government approved and licensed. Every product in the Life Choice family is formulated under the direct supervision of Dr. Eldon Dahl, the company's CEO and a trained naturopath.
Unlike some other natural supplements on the market, Life Choice products are specifically formulated to have therapeutic and medicinal value.
