We Play Supplement Favorites
We play favorites here are Mountain Mama's with no shame and MegaFood Supplements are some of our favorites!
Our supplement buyer will only bring in products that she deems fit. Our space is limited, so the supplements we do carry, we believe in. However, among those supplements, as staff, we tend to pick favorites. And time after time, we collectively find ourselves picking out MegaFood Supplements.
Here are 5 reasons why we - as staff - pick MegaFood Supplements:
1. Fresh & Local -
MegaFood uses as local as possible (to their location) ingredients. Therefore, the produce used in their supplements are literally as fresh as they can possibly get them. By buying local they are also supporting the family farms in their area! MegaFood is partnered with an organic rice farm in Arkansas, which is the closest rice farm to their location; they do not outsource their rice from another country. MegaFood is also partnered with Uncle Matt's Organic for their citrus. Uncle Matt's Organic is a family-owned company based in Florida!
2. Slo-Food Process
MegaFood uses a unique Slo-Food Process that NO OTHER supplement company uses. They have partnered with the University of New Hampshire to make sure each of the components to their supplements is being handled appropriately to maintain as many nutrients as possible. They also own 2 (of 3) of the best food dryers in the nation. (The United States Government owns the 3rd). MegaFood is serious about keeping the nutrients in their food!
3. Authentic Nourishment
MegaFood is focused on helping us get out nourishment from food. Their "vitamins" come from carrots, broccoli, blueberries. Foods our bodies recognize and know exactly what to do with. Our body does not handle synthetic vitamins and minerals the same way it handles REAL FOOD!!
4. NON Gmo Certified
MegaFood is working on earning the NON GMO seal of approval for all their supplements! As we all know, making products that are NON GMO is getting harder and harder. However, MegaFood has not shied away from the challenge, they currently have 42 products approved and 1 in process. Check here to follow their progress!
Their products also come with many other seals of approval like:
NSF Certified Gluten Free, Certified Vegan, Vegetarian, Tested Free of Pesticides & Herbicides, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Farm Fresh, Kosher
5. They Keep it Real
MegaFood's goal is to bring nourishing supplements to us as affordably as possible. They have been in the same HQ since the beginning, which is a small house in New Hampshire. They put their investments back into research and the highest quality of materials, not in frilly office buildings.
