GMO: Technological Advancement or Health Threat?
GMOs have been a hot topic of discussion for several years, and studies show that they could be harmful to humans but they are still being used in foods and supplements. Why is that? Learn everything you need to know about GMOs BEFORE deciding why GMO-free products are the best for you and your family.
Q: What are GMO foods?
A: GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) foods are products that have been genetically modified in a laboratory. The modification consists of injecting DNA of other species, such as: plants, animals, bacteria, insects, viruses and even human, into organisms with the purpose of altering their genetic map and creating “better” products. These new products will have a certain characteristic that the unaltered product doesn’t have; for example, in the case of GMO crops, the new crops will be able to resist pathogens, which supposedly enhances vitamins and supplements, better than natural, unaltered non-GMO crops. These genetically modified organisms are then used to produce food products and sold in markets and grocery stores all over the United States.
It is the start in a long chain of numerous products being transformed by just one GMO product. For example, corn. If a batch is GMO’d, it isn’t just the ears of corn at the grocery store that become altered, as that same corn can be used to feed livestock, which has now ingested the GMOs, but it doesn’t stop there.
Did you know:
- Most fast food restaurants and discount pre-made hamburger contain corn as a filler? Source: Time Magazine.
- French fries are often cooked in vegetable oil, which contains corn.
- Chicken nuggets use corn as filler, and they are fried in oil containing corn.
- Sweetners in soft drinks are corn based (high fructose corn syrup and corn sweetner)
Ketchup, Yogurt, Fruit Juices, Pudding, Salad Dressings, and Peanut Butter often use high fructose corn syrup in their products.
- Soups and pre-made gravy contain corn starch.
- Mayonnaise’s main ingredient is vegetable oil, which is made from corn.
- Vitamin D Fortified Milk contains corn.

Shocked now? Corn is in everything and while you may think you are eating something healthy, you aren’t. This is why GMOs are such a hot topic, one GMO can affect dozens or even hundreds of other products.
Q: What is the purpose of producing and selling GMO crops?
A: The main purpose of genetically modified organisms in the agricultural business is profit and productivity. As gene manipulation is more precise and has a quicker impact in overall product quality than traditional selective breeding, companies make use of genetic engineering techniques to enhance their livestock and crops. Making them more resistant to pests and diseases, drought and herbicides in order to increase their profits by improving their performance in food production and thus considerably reducing the risk of crop loss, therefore reducing crop insurance costs by adding consistency to production. GMO crops in particular require less input costs to produce than their GMO-free counterparts.
Q: So, are GMOs Safe to Consume?
A: In theory, as long as foods complete all requirements and testing that certifies products derived from genetically modified sources as safe and harmless for human consumption, earning the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seal of approval and authorizations, they are not dangerous for people to eat. However, there is a rising interest from consumers to research these products due to concerns about whether they actually ARE utterly and completely harmless for you to eat and if they should be labeled differently to tell them apart from organic non-GMO products.
The Organic Consumers Association, the Union of Concerned Scientists and Greenpeace stated that risks have not been adequately identified and managed, and they have questioned the objectivity of regulatory authorities. Some health groups claim there are unanswered questions on the potential long-term impact on human health from food derived from GMOs, and demand mandatory labeling of such products. Concerns include contamination of the non-genetically modified food supply, effects of GMOs on the environment, the criteria of the regulatory process, and consolidation of control of the food supply in companies that make and sell GMOs, or concerns over the use of toxic herbicides.
Q: Do dietary supplements and vitamins contain GMO ingredients?
A: Health supplements are manufactured from both organic and inorganic sources, which can often involve the usage of some sort of genetically engineered product in the manufacturing process. (i.e. some components can be extracted from crops that had been genetically engineered prior to harvest in order to “enhance” them by increasing their herbicide resistance, and overall quality by augmenting key ingredients concentrations).
It has become more and more profitable to make vitamins and dietary supplements from GMO products, but not all supplements have been manufactured with these shady ingredients. We take pride in selling GMO-free supplements and vitamins to our customers. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Q: What are GMO-free or non-GMO supplements and vitamins?
A: GMO-free or non-GMO supplements and vitamins are pharmaceutical products such as dietary complements and nutritional compounds that have been manufactured using organic ingredients that haven’t been genetically modified. These products don’t have any GMOs in their basic composition. What this means is that our supplements and vitamins are not injected with the hazardous GMOs, they are made only with organic GMO-free compounds that give your body a boost without causing it any harm.
Q: Is there a difference between GMO-free and non-GMO products?
A: Non-GMO products are known as those that guarantee an all organic produce, meaning that no genetic engineering techniques were applied to the products whatsoever, but some cross contamination could have occurred during transportation and distribution as particles, pollen, traces of other potential GMO products found in the air and environment could travel around with them. GMO-free products guarantee 100% GMO-free merchandise, ensuring that there was no contamination of any kind to the original non-GMO product during transportation to retailers and food markets.
The main difference between non-GMO and GMO-free product resides in the guarantee offered by the producer on whether the product contains any kind of GMO trace element or not. Some companies are especially concerned with product branding of this type, and they often make sure that their labeling is coherent with the claims they make about their product as guaranteed GMO-free.
Q: Why are GMO-free supplements and vitamins better than products with GMOs?
A: Because GMO-free supplements offer you all the benefits of organic ingredients without endangering your health. Even though GMOs are considered safe by the FDA, that doesn’t mean that genetically modified organisms are safe for humans to consume or that there won’t be adverse reactions to them in the future. Our GMO-free products provide the same energy and dietary boosts you need to complement your healthy regime and stay in good shape, with the added advantage of being completely organic and GMO-free, which means that your body will digest and metabolize our supplements and vitamins faster than any GMO product and without causing you any digestive issues or diseases.
Q: Are GMO foods and supplements labeled?
A: Many countries across the world have passed laws to regulate and control the labeling of GMO products, believing that people have a right to know what they are eating and avoid GMO merchandise if they so desire. In the US the FDA hasn’t written any laws in regards to the labeling of GMOs, in fact they’ve gone so far as to say that products shouldn’t be labeled as GMO-free or non-GMO because it’s not possible to know if there wasn’t cross contamination of said product and the label can be misinterpreted. Bottom line is that the FDA doesn’t want to regulate labeling of GMOs and won’t allow for others to label and regulate organic and non-GMO products.
Q: Which countries have a ban on GMO products?
A: GMOs are produced all over the globe, there’s no corner of our planet that hasn’t been touched by the GMO industry but unlike the USA some of these countries have decided to label GMO products and in some instances even ban them because of their adverse effects on the health of their citizens. To this day 38 countries have put a ban of some sort on GMO products, here are some of the most relevant countries that decided to ban and label GMOs:
Saudi Arabia and many more.
These countries saw the importance in labeling and banning GMOs for the safety of their citizens, people should be able to decide if they want to expose themselves to these products or not.
Q: Where are GMOs produced and sold?
A: Many countries are still producing and selling GMO products all over the world, with no clear regulations or labeling for these. The world’s most important and influential producers of GMO crops are: USA, China, Brazil, Canada, Argentina, India, and Australia. There are many more who grow and sell GMO crops but these 7 countries are taking the lead when it comes to manufacturing and selling genetically altered products for human consumption.
Q: When were GMOs first introduced into the food industry?
A: GMOs have been a part of our history for over 40 years, in 1973 a team of scientists lead by Herbert Boyer and Stanley Cohen created the first genetically modified organism. In 1983, GMO derived pharmaceutical products were created, it wasn’t until 1992 that the FDA introduced a regulating normative for GMOs. Even though GMOs have only recently started making headlines in the news they’ve been around for over four decades and we’ve been consuming them without any care to how they might affect our bodies. The first GMO was a bacteria created by Boyer and Cohen, and only a year later Rudolf Jaenisch and Beatrice Mintz created a genetically engineered mouse. Ten years later in 1982, the first medical product produced with GMOs was introduced to the public. Humulin, and only 10 years later the FDA approved the use of genetically modified tomato crops. What may take evolution thousands of year to accomplish these scientists have managed to achieve in only 40 years, we’ve cut off evolution by a thousand years at least and people still consider these products derived from GMOs to be safe.
Q: Are all supplements nowadays using GMO ingredients?
A: Of course not! Although it seems like everyone is producing and marketing GMO products, we can assure you that our supplements and vitamins are completely GMO-free and perfectly safe to use. You don’t have to worry about GMOs in our products because we ensure that all our supplements and vitamins are made with organic and GMO-free ingredients that haven’t been contaminated in any way by the GMOs that are polluting our environment. Remember to look for the 100% Organic label or the GMO-Free label before you buy your products and dietary supplements, it’s time to stop throwing things randomly in your shopping cart and start looking for quality products that won’t endanger your health.
Q: Which foods and supplements are GMO-free?
A: Since the US hasn’t executed a labeling regulation for GMOs, it can be a challenge to know which products have GMOs, but there are environmental groups and companies that have decided to create a non-GMO label in order to give consumers a chance to avoid GMOs in favor of a healthier option. Another way to buy products that haven’t been polluted with GMOs is to buy not just organic products, but look for the GMO-free label. Our supplements and vitamins are 100% GMO-free and their cost it’s the same, even cheaper, than some of the GMO stuff you’ll find in drugstores all over the nation.
Q: So, GMOs are good for farmers and their businesses, but are they bad for the environment?
A: GMO technologies have reduced pesticide use in the last few years. As genetically engineered crops need less ploughing and chemical fertilizers, GMO technology can reduce fossil fuel and CO2 emissions. Genetic engineering can therefore help diminish the effects of agriculture on the environment. Scientists are developing GMO crops that are resistant to flood, drought, and cold, enhancing crop resistance to climate change. GMO crops also allow for greater use of soil-friendly cultivation, which helps with carbon sequestration, soil erosion prevention, and better soil fertility. This might seem like a good thing, but the reality is that we haven’t done enough testing on the environment to have a true and realistic assessment of how GMOs could be affecting it and wildlife that resides close to GMO crops.
We believe in keeping ingredients as close to how nature intended them as possible.
Q: What is the impact of GMOs on human health?
A: Gene alteration techniques can improve the nutritional profile of food and thus represent a key factor in reducing global malnutrition rates. Enhancing crops with vitamins and biominerals can serve as a dietary supplement for people in countries with lack of access to proper nutrition. Treating crops to produce more nutritive products is a key initiative to improve the population’s overall health and nutrition worldwide. It all seems very good on paper but the truth is that we haven’t had enough time to determine the true scope of GMOs and how they may be affecting our health, even though they seem like the cure for hunger there have been reported cases of severe allergic reactions to GMOs, not to mention that we haven’t reviewed the consequences GMOs could bring for future generations. The usage of these products poses a serious long term hazard that needs to be studied and researched by neutral parties before we decide unilaterally that everyone must have them.
Q: Which companies use GMOs in their products?
A: The truth is that if people knew how many of their daily use products contain GMOs they would be shocked and outraged, which is why the FDA hasn’t put any real efforts into regulating and labeling GMOs, all they did was create a voluntary labeling rule that gives manufacturers the choice of labeling their GMO products or not, which means that companies who produce and sell these products have complete freedom in whether they put a GMO label or not, can you guess what they’ve chosen to do? Exactly! No one has labels alerting consumers of GMOs in their products. Some of the better known companies that sell these products are:
- Kraft Foods
And many others that have spent millions of dollars in campaigns to stop GMO labeling laws and regulations.
Q: Who regulates GMO safety in the USA?
A: To this day, the US doesn’t have any federal laws or regulations that target genetically modified products specifically, because it’s believed that products should be regulated on their nature and not on the process used to manufacture them. This is why instead of federal legislature the US has three major agencies in charge of regulating GMOs and their usage in the US, these agencies are: FDA (Food and Drug Administration), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and APHIS (US Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service).
Q: Which GMO crops are grown in the USA?
A: In the last 20 years the use of GMO crops have been exponentially increasing in the US, according to the USDA (United Stated Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service) the adoption of genetically modified crops has gone from 10% to between 80-90% in the last decade, which means that GMO-free supplements and vitamins are rare and difficult to find in a country that has allowed GMOs to overtake their agricultural produce. Some of the most popular GMO crops commercially available in order of their percentage growth are:
- Sugar beets
Plus a few other crops that are not yet commercially available but are being grown and harvested, such as: rice, wheat, eucalyptus and flax. The one ray of hope GMO-free products have is that organic producers do not let any kind of GMOs pollute their crops and that these producers are constantly monitored by regulatory agents who ensure the validity of GMO-free product. Our GMO-free supplements and vitamins are made with these organic products, thus providing you with the best non-GMO supplements.
Q: Who is allowed to use GMO ingredients in their supplements?
A: Anyone! Any company who decides to buy and use ingredients harvested from GMO crops is able to do it, there are no regulations prohibiting the use of GMOs in pharmaceutical products such as dietary supplements and vitamin compounds. There isn’t even a way to know which supplements have these GMO products in their ingredient list because there are no labeling regulations for GMOs yet. The best way to avoid these products is to choose non-GMO supplements.
Q: Why do so many products have GMOs?
A: Because GMOs reduce production costs by half, these crops don’t require pesticides or any other kind of pest repellent mechanisms since they’ve been engineered to be insect resistant. Genetically modified crops are supposed to increase productivity and shelf life of products, give then these crops will be engineered to taste better, last longer and grow bigger than regular non-GMO crops.
GMO-Free Supplements And Vitamins: The Healthiest Road
Understanding how GMO works will leave you with many questions about a better way to gain an energy boost or supplement diet than using GMO products. Here you have some answers that might alleviate your most pressing concerns.
Q: What can I do in order to differentiate GMO containing products from GMO-free products?

Experts recommend taking supplements with meals for maximum absorption as your digestion process begins while avoiding stomach issues. Read the instructions that come in the labels any product to know which supplement should be taken with each meal.
Q: Can I take Vita-Web GMO-free vitamins as soon as I wake up in the morning?
A: It’s generally advised to avoid taking GMO-free supplements with an empty stomach, however, there are exceptions in which the supplement’s overall performance and effectiveness may be affected in some way if it’s taken with meals or snacks. The best way to know when and how to take your GMO-free vitamins is to follow the guidelines that come with each GMO-free supplement. Ask your doctor if you aren’t sure of how a product may affect your body or how to improve the effectiveness of GMO-free vitamins in your body and health.
Q: Are there any GMO-free supplements that are most efficient if taken in the morning?
A: Products related to mood improvement it is best to take them in the morning for better absorption with your breakfast, mood enhancing GMO-free supplement are not recommended to take at night, as these tend to rise your energy level thus making it a bit more difficult to fall asleep if you take them close to bedtime. You want to ingest them early in the morning as to feel their effect all through your day and notice the changes it has on your mood and overall good health, a healthy mind leads to a healthy body.
Q: Are GMO-free supplements safe for people with sensitive stomach or digestive tract issues?
A: GMO-free supplements and vitamins are designed to fit the needs of any consumer, as they come from natural all organic sources, there is very little to no risk of digestive tract related unpleasantness as long as you follow the guidelines contained in the product about how many pills are recommended per day and other general directions. When in doubt ask your doctor, our GMO-free products are completely safe and, products such as our Colon Cleanser, have helped heal stomach maladies but you need to make sure this is the best product for you, so consult with your physician before taking GMO-free supplements.
Q: Which GMO-free vitamins have better results in my body if I take with breakfast?
A: Almost every supplement can be taken with your breakfast, especially most GMO-free vitamins. Including Multivitamins, B-Complex, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and many others. This will not only kickstart your daily routine but it serves as a convenient reminder to take your supplements with your breakfast right at the beginning of the day with the at-home morning meal. B-complex vitamins help you turn food into energy to power through your daily duties.
However, there is the exception for conflicting multivitamins that contain calcium and iron, as these could interfere with the absorption of one another. Take your iron containing multivitamins with your breakfast and the ones containing calcium with your dinner, this way you maximize the effect of both ingredients and avoid any absorption blockage. As vitamin C helps increase the absorption of iron, we recommend drinking orange juice with your GMO-free vitamins or taking a vitamin C GMO-free supplement with your iron intake of the day.
Q: What GMO-free vitamins should be taken with, before and after lunch?
A: Lunch is also a great time to consume multivitamins and supplements, as this is halfway through the workday, you could use some energy refuel. Take your multivitamin, B-complex, Vitamin E, Vitamin C or any other vitamins at this time. Be sure to take them with food. Remember not to take an iron containing multivitamin together with a calcium supplement. However, if the amount of calcium is small it should not conflict with the iron absorption.
Q: What vitamins should be taken before, after or during dinner?
A: Calcium supplements are best absorbed at night in smaller, more frequent doses to enhance absorption. The form of calcium you are taking defines if you should take it with meals or snacks, or on an empty stomach. Calcium carbonate requires food for better absorption. This may be taken with dinner, or in the morning, afternoon with another meal such as lunch. In contrast, calcium citrate can be normally absorbed with or without food. It means, you can take calcium citrate near bedtime on an empty stomach, or between meals throughout the day. Be sure to take your other supplements during working hours rather than waiting for your normal dinner time. Enjoy the boost while you are awake!
