Ingredient Sourcing

  • MegaFood’s goal is to source its food and botanical ingredients from suppliers who prioritize soil health through organic and regenerative practices and through participation in our supplier questionnaire (see below for details).Please see individual product ingredient labels for details on organic ingredients.  
  • Additionally, MegaFood is helping to fund research into regenerative agriculture and actively working toward a systemic change toward more regenerative and just supply chain. 

MegaFood sources our ingredients globally, and upholds all suppliers to the same code of conduct, which you can learn more about here.  In certain situations one country may be the sole country where a certain ingredient is available, as is the case with the ingredient melatonin as of March 2023. As a certified B Corporation, we continually evaluate our partnerships and sourcing to ensure they align with our commitments and values to our people and our planet.   

 While MegaFood uses certified organic ingredients, not all of our finished products are certified.  Instead, we prioritize sourcing Non GMO and test all materials and products for over 150 herbicides and pesticides, including glyphosate. We were actually the first supplement brand to have its entire portfolio certified Glyphosate Residue Free by the Detox Project.
