What Makes a Supplement Ethical?

The supplements world is big. As technologies have improved, so too have our supplement options.


Now, you can take supplements for all kinds of reasons. From herbal to vitamin to protein, but what makes a supplement ethical?


We know it’s an important question for many out there, including ourselves, and we wanted to look at what we believe truly makes a supplement green, ethical and sustainable.


Value and Evidence-Based Supplements


Values are intrinsic to what all of us do. For those who lack proper values, standards and ethics will slip. Those with strong values will create products with high standards, and this is never truer than in the supplements world.


When considering whether or not a supplement is ethical, look at the company’s values and whether there’s research behind their suggestions.


At Earths Secret our philosophy, and the values therein, is simple. We take what the Earth has given us, grow and harvest it in a sustainable manner, and finally present it to our customers with as little interference as possible.


This philosophy filters into every aspect of what we do. Our supplements are created on a GFSI and GMP certified site, adhere to stringent Food Safety standards, and have full traceability and transparency related to suppliers.


We also create our products based on scientific literature and evidence. Our three Pillar ingredients, KSM-66® Ashwagandhaaffron®, and HydroCurc®, are all testament to this and you can discover more about each here.


All of this combines to allow us to create ethical supplements which enrich our lives in the most sustainable manner possible.


Supplement Fillers to Avoid


Unfortunately value and evidence-based supplements aren’t always the norm and the supplements industry is susceptible to the pressures of big business.


This can result in some supplements containing fillers, binders or anti-caking agents. Some of the most common to look out for include:


    • Anti-caking Agents (Silicon Dioxide & Magnesium Stearate)
    • Fillers (Brown Rice Flour/Concentrate)
    • Cellulose Gum
    • Stearic Acid
    • DiCalcium Phosphate
    • Polydextrose
    • Titanium Dioxide
    • Methylcellulose
    • Stearic Acid
    • Maltodextrin


None of the above sound particularly natural, do they?


So why would a supplements business use any of the above fillers, binders or agents? In most cases it’s simply a money making or saving exercise and if some of the above are listed in the ingredients of a supplement, it may be a sign that their focus is on mass production and maximum profit rather than ethical, sustainable and healthy practice.


As with anything you might ingest, we recommend you read the labels and stay aware of what might be present.


Sustainable Supplements


Sustainability is another huge element in what makes (or doesn’t make) a supplement ethical.


At Earths Secret we believe in celebrating what the Earth has created and presented to us. There are incredible natural ingredients all around us, and we simply want to bring these to the world with as much love, respect and compassion as possible.


This means our ingredients are harvested in a safe and sustainable manner, leaving as little impact on the environment as possible.


It also means that our entire business is built with sustainability in mind. Everything including the ingredients, packaging, service and delivery has been specifically chosen with ethical and sustainable values in mind.


When you’re considering your own supplement choice, have a think about the entire package.


Our Mission


We understand the supplements world can potentially be a confusing place.


Our mission is to celebrate Earths incredible ingredients and bring them to the world so that we can all thrive and lead full and prosperous lives.


We hope we’ve helped answer some important questions but you can read more about our philosophy, values and practices, here.

Here’s Why People Trust Us To Care For Their Body & Mind

We Create Unique Complexes

We’ve explored all corners of the Earth to find nature’s most potent herbs, plants and fruits for human wellbeing. Individually, these ingredients have been used for centuries. Together, they can truly transform modern wellness. Our complexes use cutting edge science to synergise these ingredients in ways that maximise absorption, giving you the most powerful results. 

We’re Backed By Science

Created by nature, proven by science. Each one of our Pillar ingredients is clinically peer-patented, using cutting edge methods and backed by extensive scientific literature. And because each one harnesses the highest bioavailability of each plant or herb, it’s hardly surprising that all three of our Pillar ingredients have won awards within the health and wellness space. 

We Honour Nature

Our ethos is rooted in a deep respect for mother nature. After all, Earth has given us the gifts we need to nurture our bodies and mind for thousands of years; we simply need to reconnect to this truth. That’s why we use the purest plants, herbs and fruits in our complexes and include zero fillers, anti-caking agents, binders or preservatives. So you just get the good stuff, exactly as nature intended. 

We’re Sustainable & Ethically Sourced

Our company honours what our planet has given us. That’s why we insist on full traceability and transparent suppliers when it comes to a green agenda and we’ve sourced the most eco-friendly options available for our packaging.
