HealthForce Nutritionals Purity Protein Enhanced Pure Vanilla - 500 grams (17.65 ounces)
HealthForce Nutritionals Purity Protein Enhanced Pure Vanilla was created for one reason: Dr. Sheridan saw the need for truly pure, non-toxic, complete and balanced supplemental protein. Hype is Nothing. Substance is EVERYTHING! Many protein powders are acid forming, difficult to digest/assimilate, create bloating, gas, and allergic reactions, are hard on the kidneys, contain pesticides, GMOs, and hexane solvent residues. Animal proteins (regardless of “purity”) create negative immune reactions in all blood and body types (leukocytosis), and isolated proteins (animal or vegetable) are lacking critical accessory nutrients. Even most “organic” ones still have INorganic ingredients (with pesticides), and/or contribute chemical xenoestrogens from the packaging (soft plastic/foil pouches).
In contrast, HealthForce Nutritionals Purity Protein Pure Vanilla is a 100% TruGanic, plant-based, non-toxic, raw, easy to digest, highly bioavailable, hypoallergenic, and complete protein formula packaged in EcoFresh Nutrient Lock Packaging. Organic and TruGanic Sprouted Brown Rice Protein (80% protein, 20% nutrients) and Organic and TruGanic Hemp Protein (50% protein, 50% nutrients) provide incredibly easy to digest proteins with branched chain amino acids that still contain the critical accessory nutrients (whole food vitamins, minerals, and healing and protective phytonutrients). These are NOT isolated nutrients. Increased bioavailability with added enzymes. Blood sugar and endurance support with nopal cactus (Opuntia streptacantha) and arctic root. Liver, kidney, and antioxidant function support with their unique and exclusive milk thistle Natural Spectrum Intensetrate (NSI). Actual real taste (NOT “flavoring”) with the healing legume vanilla (actual vanilla bean), and a balanced hint of green stevia whole herb (NOT the white, stevisode extract that tastes of saccharin and has no nutritional benefits). Only the best possible. Only purity.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why does HealthForce Nutritionals package EcoFresh in amber glass bottles?
Their EcoFresh Nutrient Lock Packaging system (glass bottle, airtight metal lid with rubber seal, and oxygen absorber in the bottle) effectively creates a vacuum inside the bottle, preventing oxidation of fragile nutrients. In addition, amber glass is UV resistant and can withstand heat much more than plastic. They work hard to source the highest quality products with the highest nutritional density. It is important to them that they deliver the product to YOU, the consumer, in its highest integral form.
Note that all plastic bottles and metal/foil pouches (and plastic lids on glass bottles) allow oxygen to pass through and come into contact with the product inside the bottle, slowly oxidizing valuable nutrients as the product sits on the shelf waiting to be purchased. In addition, plastic bottles and metal/foil pouches (worst and not recyclable) offgas volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that negatively affect our health, and are highly toxic to melt down. In contrast, their bottles do not offgas and can be easily recycled (non-toxic to melt down), or better, reused for dry or liquid food storage!
What are the purity standards for HealthForce products? Are HealthForce products organic?
TruGanic is a purist, hard-core, quality standard for sourcing and production that takes standards significantly beyond those dictated by USDA Organic. Their TruGanic products must pass tests to verify that they are 100% free of GMOs, irradiation, pesticides, and herbicides. The TruGanic standard was created by Dr. Jameth Sheridan of HealthForce Nutritionals to verify absolute purity. This came in response to a significant erosion and widespread dissatisfaction with organic standards as defined by the USDA.
Dr. Sheridan and the HealthForce team take the utmost care in selecting ingredients for use in their TruGanically-grown products. They have a general three-step process:
- They ask the supplier of the organic or wildcrafted ingredients if they use any pesticides, herbicides, GMOs, irradiation, or EtO (ethylene oxide). They also ask the supplier for detailed information about their processing method in order to assure that it is of the highest quality and free of toxins. If they pass these verbal tests, then they request:
- A Certificate of Analysis to verify purity. Once this has been approved, they next
- Test for approximately 200-300 toxins. Once these tests comes back with zero detectable levels of contaminants, the ingredient is approved for use in HealthForce products.
Are HealthForce products gluten free?
Yes. HealthForce is a 100% gluten-free facility, and they guarantee all of their products to be gluten free. As an added measure of assurance, they have all raw materials tested for gluten contamination before they enter their facility.
- Myth: wheatgrass juice/fiber contains gluten.
- Fact: HealthForce Greener Grasses Alkalizer blend (containing wheat and barley grass fibers/juices) is guaranteed 100% gluten free, verified by regular testing. They use mature grasses, which are gluten free, and also offer the benefit of being more bioavailable and nutrient dense. Young, tray-grown grasses can potentially have gluten contamination by way of the actual berries being juiced with the grass. It is possible that even small amounts of gluten can affect someone with Celiac’s disease, so it is best to only consume mature grown grasses to be on the safe side.
Are HealthForce products Vegan?
Yes, all HealthForce products are 100% guaranteed Vegan. Their entire production facility is 100% Vegan, with no animal products used (or consumed) anywhere on site. Jameth and Kim Sheridan (HealthForce founders and owners) have eaten a whole food Vegan diet for over 25 years and HealthForce is strongly infused with these values and principles. HealthForce also never uses labs that do animal testing, or purchases any products where animal testing was involved. HealthForce Nutritionals is proud to be a 100% Vegan/cruelty-free company, and their products are phenomenal for supporting a healthy and balanced Vegan and/or vegetarian diet.
Do I have to be Vegan to get benefit from HealthForce products?
You don’t have to be Vegan to use HealthForce products and get health benefits. Their products offer nutrient density and therapeutic concentration that is usable to anyone on any diet. Though they recommend a diet with emphasis on high-water-content, raw, Vegan foods, they are not a “Vegans-only” company, and they are not in the business of telling you what you “should” eat. Their passion is simply making high-quality products that are Vegan and therefore suitable for everyone. They want you to be empowered to do what works best for you. If you are not Vegan, and aren’t interested in Veganism, or have tried Veganism and decided it doesn’t work for you, and/or thrive on any other diet other than strict Veganism, don’t let “Vegan” turn you away. Ultimately, HealthForce products can be beneficial to anyone on any diet.
Are HealthForce products considered raw?
Yes, all of their superfood products are dried at low temperatures to preserve the integrity of the fragile nutrients, life force energy, and enzymes. Vitamineral Green, Earth, Spirulina Manna, Spirulina Azteca, Chlorella Manna, Elixir of the Lake, Friendly Fats, Greener Grasses Alkalizer, Truly Natural Vitamin C, MacaForce, Fruits of the Earth, Warrior Food, Nopal Blood Sugar, and Elite Green Protein are all guaranteed 100% raw food.
Do I have to be a raw-foodist to benefit from HealthForce products?
No, you don’t have to be raw to use HealthForce products and get health benefits. Their products offer nutrient density and therapeutic concentration that is highly beneficial for anyone on any diet. Dr. Jameth Sheridan passionately recommends a Vegan, high-water-content, whole food diet with an emphasis on raw foods, 50% and higher, as suitable for the individual/climate. Jameth has found that an emphasis on raw foods is generally healthier than adhering to a 100% strict raw food diet. Jameth believes that there are some cooked foods which are healthier than some raw foods, and although this may vary person to person, based upon his experience and research, following a vegan, whole food diet with an emphasis on raw and living foods, offers the healthiest long-term dietary approach.
How are the HealthForce herbs and superfoods dried and ground?
They source from the highest quality growers/harvesters/processors that use HealthForce approved processing methods (only low-heat drying and grinding processes). This is of paramount importance in selecting their suppliers. They choose low heat drying over freeze drying, because they feel that one processing method damages fragile nutrients less than two. In other words, they feel that freezing AND drying degrades fragile nutrients more than just low temperature drying.
HealthForce's formulas are designed to deliver maximum bioavailability, so they go for the finest grinds possible with every superfood and herb they work with. Finer grinding yields much higher therapeutic potency, as the body is able to assimilate so many more nutrients, compared to with similar products with coarser grinds. Fewer cells per particle is our goal. Because HealthForce superfoods are so finely ground, they mix easily, go down smooth, and challenge the belief (based on common experience) that green/superfood powders have to be “chalky” and/or unpleasant and gritty to consume. They frequently hear from their customers that their products are not only massively therapeutic, but also taste great. The purity and freshness of their ingredients, combined with the highest known quality processing, results in the highest therapeutic value they can deliver to YOU, the end consumer.
What are the benefits of consuming the cereal grasses (e.g., wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass) found in Vitamineral Green, Greener Grasses Alkalizer, Green Mush, Fruits of the Earth, and Elite Green Protein?
Cereal grasses have been used as human food supplements since the 1930s, oftentimes dramatically improving people’s health. They contain excellent sources of beta-carotene, vitamin K, folic acid, calcium, iron, protein, fiber, vitamin C, and many of the B vitamins. Micronutrient content in grasses is much higher than that found in other green vegetables, and grasses are particularly rich in the highly beneficial alkalizing minerals (e.g., calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium).
Why do they use both whole leaf grasses and dehydrated grass juice powder in their products?
Whole leaf grasses provide high levels of valuable micronutrients, as well as beneficial fiber. This fiber provides an important food source (prebiotic) for the probiotics in their products, and also serves to promote bowel regularity and detoxification.
Note that the cell walls of whole leaf grasses are made of cellulose, which humans cannot digest. Thus, whole leaf grasses must be ground finely enough to have their cell walls broken in order to make the nutrients found inside the cell bioavailable. Dr. Sheridan worked for years to develop a grinding process that breaks virtually 100% of the cell walls in their whole leaf grasses without any heat generation. Unlike many other whole leaf grass products on the market that are ground coarsely, the micronutrients in our whole leaf grass powders are totally bioavailable.
They also use dehydrated grass juice powders in their products, because grass juice powders provide highly concentrated levels of bioavailable micronutrients.
Maintaining and Surpassing True, Actual, Hard-Core Organic Standards
TruGanic is a purist, hard-core quality standard for sourcing and production significantly beyond Organic. The TruGanic standard was created by Dr. Jameth Sheridan of HealthForce Nutritionals to verify absolute purity. This came in response to a significant erosion and widespread dissatisfaction with Organic standards as defined by the USDA.Organic is definitely a step in the right direction for the “average” person who is not educated in the matter. However, it is backwards progress for the rest of us. Now that the USDA legally owns and regulates “Organic,” a significant portion of its intent and purity has been eroded. This is obvious especially to those of us who have been involved in the industry for a long time (approximately 25 years for Dr. Sheridan). Whereas Organic “certifies” its weaker standard with paperwork only but does NO ACTUAL testing, TruGanic verifies its stricter, hard-core standard with actual testing.
TruGanic products must pass actual tests to verify that they are: 100% pesticide, insecticide, and herbicide free. Defined as ZERO detectable. 100% GMO free. Defined as ZERO GMO detectable. 100% irradiation free. Defined as ZERO detectable. Nutrient Dense - this is a way to check up on the use of non-organic fertilizers. Organics do not have any of this verification. NONE.
HealthForce Nutritionals believes that TruGanic represents the highest level of purity known, and is in alignment with their goal of providing the most healing/nutrient dense elements possible (which, in their experience, are often wildcrafted and/or outside of organic jurisdiction). TruGanic is an integral part our comprehensive, most therapeutic products that they possibly can.
