We try our hardest to simplify our formulas & maximize the benefits! Our protein powder, for example, is one of the purest powders on the market, with only six ingredients. Our liquid probiotic is just raw probiotic and water, without different chemicals and additives that many companies use to preserve probiotics.
Liquid vitamins and minerals are a bit more complicated! Because there are so many ingredients and each one interacts differently, not using a gum leaves the formula with a very bad consistency and vitamins that don’t evenly distribute. We want you to get the best product, and we do our best to make sure that every ingredient is essential. We work tirelessly to find ways to optimize our formulas and make them as pure as possible without jeopardizing safety and health.
Most of our Multis contain xanthan gum, a plant-based thickening agent. Xanthan gum is named for the bacteria Xanthomonas campestris, which is grown on a non-GMO corn substrate. After fermentation and refinement, no detectable traces of corn protein are left. However, if you have a corn allergy it is best to check with a physician or healthcare professional for their advice before taking the supplement.
For the time being, our one alternative is the Lemonade Dream Extra Strength Multimineral, which is made from Guar Gum rather than Xanthan Gum. We are looking into making a Multivitamin with Guar Gum. Please feel free to reach out to our customer care team if you have any further questions!
