PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Garden of Life®, the No.1 brand for probiotics and the leader for organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, science-based nutritional products, today announced it has earned Non-GMO Project Verification for its entire line of "Dr. Formulated" probiotics, the fastest-growing line of probiotics in the natural channel1.
Garden of Life has a long and deep commitment to producing clean, traceable nutrition solutions, evidenced by the fact that Garden of Life has more Non-GMO Project Verified and USDA Organic Certified products than any supplement company in the natural products industry. The addition of the Non-GMO Project Verified seal to the company's line of Dr. Formulated probiotics underscores Garden of Life's mission to "Empower Extraordinary Health" and its support of GMO-free crops, diverse soil systems and clean water as being fundamental to a healthy planet and ultimately, healthy people.
Dr. Formulated probiotics were formulated by the undisputed leader in the growing study of the human microbiome, leading neurologist and New York Times best-selling author of "Grain Brain" and "Brain Maker," David Perlmutter, M.D. Dr. Perlmutter has been a vocal advocate against the proliferation of genetically modified crop production in the U.S.
"Chemicals such as glyphosate, used in the farming of genetically modified crops, are toxic to healthy bacteria. While we don't know the long-term effects of genetic modification on our health, we do know that heavy loads of these toxic chemicals can harm our human microbiome, and that is why it's so important to look for products that have been verified non-GMO," said Perlmutter. "I'm proud that the entire line of Dr. Formulated probiotics has become Non-GMO Project Verified."
The Non-GMO Project is a nonprofit organization that offers North America's most trusted third-party verification for non-GMO food and products, the Non-GMO Project Verified (and butterfly icon). It is committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers and providing verified non-GMO choices.
