From Source to Bottle: The Sustainable Journey of Terraseed's Vegan Supplements

From Source to Bottle: The Sustainable Journey of Terraseed's Vegan Supplements

In today's world, where conscious consumerism is on the rise, understanding the journey of the products we consume has become paramount. At Terraseed, we take pride in offering not just supplements but a commitment to transparency, sustainability, and ethical sourcing practices. Join us as we take you behind the scenes to explore the journey of three of our most essential ingredients ‚Äď Omega-3, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin D3 ‚Äď from¬†source to bottle.

1. Sourcing Omega-3 Sustainably 

Every year, the supplement industry kills billions of fish to create Omega-3 supplements. In fact, it takes up to 100 fish to create one single Omega-3 pill bottle. Shocking, right? It's crucial to comprehend the origins of Omega-3 supplements, particularly considering the environmental impact of traditional animal-based sources. At Terraseed, we've embraced sustainability by sourcing our Omega-3 from algae grown indoors in a controlled environment in South Carolina. This plant-based alternative is fully sustainable as it bypasses the need for marine life extraction. Unlike fish-derived Omega-3, which often results in ecosystem disruption and wasteful practices, our algae is cultivated indoors, ensuring minimal environmental impact.

2. Sourcing Vitamin D3 Responsibly

Vitamin D3 is commonly sourced from lanolin, derived from sheep's wool, in a process that involves extensive chemical manipulation. However, at Terraseed, we opt for a more natural approach. Our Vitamin D3 is sourced from Reindeer lichen, wildcrafted in China from naturally fallen specimens in controlled forests. By foraging responsibly and monitoring ecosystems, we ensure minimal impact on the environment while providing a sustainable source of this essential vitamin.

3. Sourcing Vitamin B12 Ethically

Understanding the source of Vitamin B12 is crucial for both health and environmental reasons. Many supplements use synthetic Cyanocobalamin, which requires conversion in the body and contains traces of cyanide. However, at Terraseed, we produce B12 through fermentation in a controlled lab environment, using methylcobalamin, a natural form readily absorbed by the body. This method minimizes disturbances to nature and ensures a sustainable source of this vital nutrient.
