This marks a milestone for food safety and protections for consumers.
(PRWEB) February 07, 2014
Sunwarrior, a plant-based supplement company in Southern Nevada, is excited to join a new industry accord with Mike Adams (The Health Ranger), Garden of Life and other leading health advocates. They will combine forces to seek higher standards from farmers and suppliers. Together they hope to change the way food, especially rice, is grown, improving the ingredients that go into health-food products at the source. The initial focus of this accord is to lower the heavy metals that are naturally more prevalent in some foods (click here for a list of common foods naturally high in heavy metals).
“We’ll never be able to fully eradicate heavy metals,” said Nick Stern, cofounder of Sunwarrior. “They’re naturally in our soil and water. But we can make food safer for all of us.”
"This marks a milestone for food safety and protections for consumers," said Mike Adams, health advocate and editor of Natural News.
Heavy metals are in everything grown in soil. These metals naturally exist in the earth’s crust, in our air, and in our water. They appear frequently in foods that require more water, like brown rice, root vegetables, and greens (infographic). They are unavoidable, but the body does an amazing job removing these minute amounts, especially the safer, organic forms that exist in plants.
This doesn’t mean people shouldn’t pay attention to their exposure. Sunwarrior products already follow a high standard and they will work with Mike Adams to raise those standards even higher. Their rice protein falls well below FDA, WHO, and EU guidelines in every test. Sunwarrior products are safe. If people are still concerned with rice, they can make the switch to Warrior Blend, which doesn’t contain any rice protein and consistently tests far lower, negligible, for any heavy metals across the board.
How to Lower Heavy Metals in our Bodies
Natural News provides many ways here to reduce the risks of heavy metals by relying on natural foods that form organic bonds with minerals and aid in their removal, often referred to as chelates. Sulfur, amino acids, and alpha lipoic acid found in spinach, parsley, peas, and brown rice all help the body remove heavy metals. These are also found in Sunwarrior products.
