Premier Research Labs: Pure Vitamins and Supplements

Posted by Kathy LeMoine

Radiant Life strives to offer you only "The Best of the Best"  whole food supplements.

Radiant Life has a set of core principles that every supplement must meet.

All Radiant Life pure vitamins and supplements are subject to a rigorous set of testing and selection criteria before being introduced. supplements must meet the following standards:
  • Unyielding commitment to product quality and consistency
  • Fair trade practices
  • Purity (higher standards than organic)
  • No excipients including: fillers, lubricants, binders, coatings, flowing agents, etc.
  • No preservatives of any type
  • No synthetic processes if at all possible
  • No Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
  • No gluten
  • Raw, unheated whenever appropriate and possible (exceptions include products like maca & carob which are best not eaten raw)
  • Minimal refinement – no solvents or high temps, no bleaching, no deodorizers, no incidental production of MSG by-products
  • Packaged ecologically, safely (dark bottles when necessary, opaque/dark plastic bottles are avoided)
  • Can be ground shipped without physical damage or compromising quality in transit
  • Can handle variations in temperature (hot and cold)
  • Has adequate shelf life
  • Consumers notice a benefit in a reasonable period
  • Fulfills a need
  • Whole food (superfood) based
  • Fits into theme of native nutrition and overall wellness
Avoid nutritional products that have questionable, potentially harmful, non-nutritive excipients!

What Are Excipients?

Excipients are binders, fillers and “glues” that are typically non-nutritive substances in nutritional products. Why would you want to consume anything that is not nutritive?

Just a few examples of questionable excipients commonly found in nutritional products:

Magnesium stearate a cheap lubricating agent; research shows it to be immune-compromising

Methyl parabena benzoate family member; a known cancer-causing agent

Microcrystalline cellulosea cheap filler

Silicon dioxidea cheap flowing agent (common sand)

Methacrylic copolymer methacrylic acid, a component of the methacrylic acid copolymer

Triethyl citrate – a plasticizer

Titanium dioxide – used for color

Tablets ALWAYS contain excipients (that is how they are made; they cannot be made without them); therefore, we believe the best choice is to avoid nutritional products as tablets if possible.

Other Questionable but Common Tableting and Encapsulating Agents

D&C red #33

Propylparaben

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose

Hydroxypropyl cellulose

Polyethylene glycol

Red ferric oxide-orange shade

Methyl p-hydroxybenzoate

Propyl p-hydroxybenzoate

Sodium acetate

Methylparaben

Sodium metabisulfite

Eudragit
