All Vital Earth products are guaranteed free of unhealthy fillers, binders and toxic chemicals. No high heat, pasteurization, or pressure extrusion are ever used in any of our formulations.
We are adamantly opposed to artificial sweeteners and MSG of any type, so you will NEVER find either in any Vital Earth formula. Only all natural, low-glycemic sweeteners, such as stevia and xylitol, are ever used.
All ingredients are from premium sources, gluten-free, and any flavorings used are from natural sources. Minimal preservatives are used, when required, in small amounts that are less than 1/10th of 1 percent.
Here's what is NOT in any Vital Earth product:
NO - Polysorbate 80
NO - Hydrogenated Oils
NO - Polyethylene Glycol
NO - Added sugar or crystalline fructose
NO - Sucralose or Aspartame (artificial sweeteners)
NO - MSG (any form)
NO - Titanium Dioxide
NO - Gluten
NO - Genetically Modified Ingredients (GMOs)
RAW MATERIALS documented and tested
Our lab is ISO 9000 and cGMP certified. It also has a strict vendor qualification program in place, and third party testing is performed to verify all vendor documentation. Microbiological analysis is performed on each and every product run to provide a “Certificate of Analysis” verifying ingredient content and purity, in addition to rigorous, self imposed quality control measures.
To guarantee against receiving inferior imported raw materials, our lab has an ongoing vendor qualification program in place. Suppliers of raw materials must meet a strict criterion for documentation of origin of each raw material as well as quality control systems. Vendors must provide proof with each batch that the raw material has been tested for contaminants and microbials, as well as potency, purity, strength, composition and a C of A. (Certificate of Analysis). Third party testing is used to verify that test results are accurate. When raw materials are received by the lab, they are quarantined and tested again, in-house. This is just a small overview of the standards and requirements our lab demands of their raw material suppliers.
WE LIST EVERY SINGLE INGREDIENT
If we put it in the bottle, it goes on our label. It’s that simple. We even list ingredients that are in such small amounts they are not required to be listed by the FDA. Be wary of manufacturers who don’t display their supplement facts label and the “other ingredients” paragraph. Double check for harmful preservatives, MSG derivatives, artificial sweeteners and flavorings, colorings, crystalline fructose, high fructose corn syrup or added sugars before you buy.
Liquid Minerals: Our Gentle Extraction Process, source material, and mineral content
- Extracted with nothing but cool purified water
- Ionic minerals - not colloidals (ionic is smaller than colloidal and can easily enter cells)
- Fresh water plant material source
- Alkaline pH - not acidic
- No heavy metals of any kind
- Nothing added: no flavoring, sweeteners, preservatives, chemicals, MSG ... NO Artificial anything!
Because of our gentle, meticulous extraction process that utilizes nothing but cool, purified water, Vital Earth’s fulvic/humic has a highly beneficial alkaline pH of between 7.0 and 9.0. We do not use any chemicals, high heat, or pressure extrusion. Our fulvic and humic are as natural as you can get.
Vital Earth's minerals are plant-based organics, from a fresh water source. They are ionic (much much smaller sized than colloidals), and have the mineral content of the original plant matter, exactly as it was presented by nature. There are no additives, preservatives or flavorings in our mineral products. There are NO heavy metals, rock, or clay based minerals in any of our mineral products; 100% plant based.
All Vital Earth products (and ingredients) are Non-GMO and free of the following: Artificial coloring, flavoring, sweeteners, crystalline fructose, HFCS, MSG, gluten, wheat dairy, milk derivatives, soy, yeast, sugar, starch, salt.

Along with extensive monitoring and documentation, internal audits, and rigorous testing, our lab operates under the following certifications and membership:
- ISO 9000*
- Current GMP status**
These certifications ensure quality control enforcement of all aspects of production, from receipt of raw materials, plant cleanliness, lot tracking, testing, production, and shipping of finished goods. Stringent quality control procedures are part of every phase of our manufacturing. Microbiological analysis is performed on each and every product run before it is released for shipping.
We partner with a nutritional biochemist with over 30 years experience in this field to help us create our formulas. Each ingredient is carefully researched to make sure our products are therapeutic and readily absorbed by the body.
None of our products have been tested on animals.
*ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Assures that quality management principles are in compliance through all manufacturing phases.
** FDA compliance that ensures all products are safe, and pure by utilizing a highly regulated, quality controlled standard of manufacturing.
