269 – Whole Earth and Sea Food Supplements – My Interview with Rob Yelland

Natural Factors has their own 1000 acre organic farm.

When it comes to supplements made with and including foods you have to look behind the scenes. As you may know I have been a big fan of Natural Factors. I have been interviewing their experts for many years. You can find all of those past interviews here. But in all of those interviews we have not discussed the some of amazing things that Natural Factors does that many people don’t know about. I was so impressed when I learned more I wanted to share this story with you.

In this interview Rob Yelland discusses the Whole Earth and Sea supplements and the origins of this line. The more I learned the more I appreciate what they are doing. I am all about understanding the distinctions between companies and the products they produce. When we understand these differences then we can make better choices. After listening to this interview, you will understand why Whole Earth and Sea supplements are truly unique.

Natural Factors Farms

It starts with Natural Factors Farms. This is truly a seed to shelf story and I urge you to explore the website where you will learn much more than we can cover in the interview. Natural Factors has created an award winning product line that reflects the commitment of the owner and the passion of the entire company. This is a family business that is born of inspiration and commitment to the the importance of food and the health of the planet.

The Whole Earth & Sea Story (Content provided by WholeEarthSea.com)
The Whole Earth & Sea difference starts with the best raw materials: high-potency foods packed with essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and hundreds of antioxidants, enzymes and phytonutrients. Most of these nutrient-dense plants are grown on Natural Factors Farms where they’ve been harvesting 100% organic crops from non-GMO seeds for almost a quarter century

Farm Fresh Factors™ is a powerful combination of organic active vegetables, organic cruciferous vegetables, organic fruits, organic herbals and organic sea vegetables. The Farm Fresh Factors process starts with these fresh, raw, nutrient-dense plants to yield a concentrated biomass of bioenergetic vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytonutrients. Farm Fresh Factors starts with 200 grams of fresh raw plants, processed using their EnviroSimplex method to retain and intensity the total goodness of whole food into rich living food.

From heirloom seeds, planted in the ground with a little water, nutrients from the soil, and a whole lot of energy from the sun, comes the wholesome nutrition that sustains our lives. Natural Factors Farms are certified 100% organic and pesticide-free. Crops are fertilized only with compost and nitrogen-rich sea plants and are meticulously cared for by hand. The plants are then harvested at their peak and immediately raw processed at our own facilities.

EnviroSimplex Technology

EnviroSimplex Technology

EnviroSimplex deploys gentle agitation with just the right amount of heat under high vacuum to extract moisture, preserve the active ingredients, shorten drying times and protect sensitive phytonutrients. The processing temperature always stays below 118°F (48°C). Plus, the process is free of solvents and ethanol for safer whole food concentrates. The EnviroSimplex method liquefies and mixes all raw materials in a special chamber where the bio-activation process occurs, allowing enzymes, probiotics and prebiotics to culture the ingredients.

The whole plant or fruit is used, including the peel, stem and seeds – all rich sources of antioxidants. Batch-by-batch processing ensures that all the ingredients are thoroughly dispersed. As a result, the concentrated nutrients are suitable for stand-alone supplements and as components in our Whole Earth & Sea health-promoting formulas.

You have shared great tips. I think active vegetables are most important to our life. Cod liver oil also needed for our body. what do you think about it?
