Letter From The Founder
My name is Rick Simpson and I am the Founder and C.E.O. of Emerald Labs. In today’s fast-changing world, it brings me great joy to be able to say that we are still family owned and operated since our very beginnings in 1996.
Emerald Labs is at least in part a “byproduct” of my upbringing, my own personal experiences with ill-health at a young age and the positive effects that the natural food industry has had on my own life for well over thirty-five years.
In 1996, I established my own G.M.P. facility where we began contract manufacturing nutritional supplements and powders for others. As standard practice, most nutritional supplements on the market today contain an array of additives such as magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, crosscarmellose sodium, microcrystalline cellulose and/or stearic acid. Each of these additives can be found on product labels listed under “other ingredients”. While these ingredients do functionally speed up the manufacturing processes and modify the natural behaviors of raw material powders, they are NOT generally in the product to provide ANY benefit to a consumer’s health.
I was determined to do something different, so, in 2001, I started what would eventually become Emerald Labs, “the Additive-Free Company”®. Shortly thereafter, I asked my brother, Robert, to join me and oversee the contract manufacturing side of the business.
Each Emerald Labs product we produce includes ONLY active, nutritive ingredients. The only “other ingredient” you’ll ever see listed on our formulas is “capsule”. In addition to extensive 3rd party testing, we also have our own “in-house” laboratory where we test all incoming ingredients and outgoing products. To this day, I still personally choose each of our raw material suppliers.
We have also partnered with Dr. Mark Stengler, N.M.D, “America’s Natural Doctor®”, who, for over a decade, has formulated our products to the same specifications he uses in his integrative medical clinic in Encinitas, CA.
Over the last 20+ years, our company has grown, but our values have never changed. We are committed to making products that I feel personally confident sharing with my own loved ones…and that means that we are, and will always be, committed to QUALITY from beginning to end.
From Our Family to Yours, we want to sincerely thank you for your interest in Emerald Labs and allowing us to share our passion for nutrition with you.
Yours in good health,
Rick Simpson, C.E.O.

Made with NON-GMO Ingredients
Each and every one of the raw materials in our Emerald Labs formulas are tested for identity, strength, composition and purity.
No Magnesium Stearate – Additive-Free
Additives generally have little or no nutritive value. The objective of taking a dietary supplement is for the herbs or nutrients to break down and be utilized by our bodies. Additives do not generally facilitate this process. The best nutritional supplements promote the quick uptake by the body of the nutrients they possess. They do this by being in a form that the body can easily assimilate so it can access the herb or nutrient and expose it to processes that will ultimately lead to the nutrient taking part in cellular metabolism.*
Gluten sensitivities are becoming more and more common among people. We have made these formulas completely gluten-free so that our supplements will not pose problems for people with this issue.
The majority of Emerald Labs products are in vegetable capsules so that vegetarians and people that have concerns about animal-based products can be confident in taking our products.
Raw Whole-Food Based
Enzymes, Prebiotics, and Probiotics are some of the primary keys involved in slowing the aging process and maintaining proper absorption. Raw whole foods are rich in essential enzymes which help to maintain excellent health. Digestive and metabolic enzymes as well as healthy “gut” bacteria (probiotics) tend to “drop-off” as we age. Our Raw Whole Food Blend provides a synergistic blend of sprout powders (one of the richest sources of metabolic enzymes), broad-spectrum plant-based digestive enzymes as well as a rich blend of probiotics, raw whole foods and prebiotics (essential food for probiotics).*
The RAW WHOLE-FOOD BASED BLEND with Probiotics and Enzymes Contains…
Organic Raw Whole Food Sprout Powders (Organic Quinoa, Organic Mung Bean, Organic Millet), Raw Probiotic Blend (400 million CFU’s Acidophilus/B. Bifidum), Raw Plant Enzyme Blend (Lipase, Lactase, Invertase, Protease, Hemicellulase, Cellulase, Alpha-Galactosidase, Amylase, Bromelain, Papain, Acid-Stable Protease, Maltase), Fructo-Oligosaccharides, Whole Food Pomegranate Juice Powder, Organic Raw Whole Food Freeze-Dried Acai Powder, Whole Food Mangosteen Hull Powder, Organic Whole Food Noni Fruit Powder.
