www.ewg.org Information on genetically-modified foods and toxic chemicals in our foods and personal care products.  They also have a free app called The Dirty Dozen that gives a list of produce that contains the most amount of pesticide residues so that you can know the ones that are the most important to buy organic.  It also lists the ones with the least amounts.

Nature's Sunshine  is my go-to company for most of my supplements, essential oils, and other health care items.   Signing up as a member will give you amazing discounts on all products, as well as other membership benefits.  I especially like the fast shipping (usually two business days for me) and their friendly customer service.  Nature's Sunshine is committed to making and selling high quality products, as well as educating the consumer about them.

Why does quality control matter?  More than 85% of dietary supplements are manufactured by suppliers who have no testing labs.  If herbs are not cleaned well, they can be contaminated with dirt, heavy metals, pesticides, mold, yeast, salmonella, and E. coli.  Nature's Sunshine owns nine research labs and tests every batch of product for the highest standards of purity, safety, and potency, as well as for radiation.  If it does not meet their strict standards, the entire batch is returned to the manufacturer, and many companies with less integrity are waiting to purchase and market it to you!  The label "organic" does not insure that a product is not contaminated.  Toxic amounts of lead have been found in some calcium, vitamin D, and turmeric (curcumin) supplements, which can build up in bones and increase calcium loss!

If you do decide to become a Nature's Sunshine member, I would appreciate your signing up under me.  When you do, I will be glad to answer your questions concerning their products.
