Garden of Life is the leading supplement brand in the healthy foods channel and is on a mission to Empower Extraordinary Health. They were founded in 2000 and since that time they've dedicated themselves to the belief that overall health is rooted in healthy digestion. From their beginnings they've been dedicated to whole food nutrition, teaming with enzymes, probiotics, food co factors and nutrients all derived from the best quality organic and non gmo sources. Garden of Life hopes for a day when companies and consumers will use their economic power to stem the rising tide of genetic modifications to the food system. They believe that these modifications are proliferating toxic chemical pollution in waterways and land masses, and contributing to rising incidence of serious health concerns in children and adults. Garden of Life wants to create a healthier planet, and population as our children's inheritance.
