FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Are Pure Natura's products Certified organic ?
In general, lamb meat production in Iceland does not have organic certifications except for a few farms. Sheep farming has been done the same way since the year 874 and Icelanders are very aware of the quality and purity of the meat. Therefore most farmers do not see the value in spending money on organic certifications.
All Icelandic sheep live their entire lives roaming free in the hills of Iceland, eating exclusively pesticide-, and fertilizer free grass and wild herbs that grow in nature. In that sense the sheep are essentially more like wild game rather than farm animals. The farmers association has its own label for lamb meat, which puts emphasis on this fact – i.e. that they are free roaming in nature, fed on grass, herbs and clean water. https://icelandiclamb.is
The plants and herbs we use for our products grow wild in the highland or elsewhere far away from agricultural land and human intervention. Garlic being the only exception as it does not grow wild in Iceland. We therefore use organic garlic grown abroad, in hopes that it will be available in Iceland soon.
Are there any pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers or other unwanted chemicals used on the plants and herbs in Pure Natura’s whole food supplements?

They are highly complex structures that combine a variety of enzymes, coenzymes, antioxidants, trace elements, activators, and many other unknown or undiscovered factors all working together synergistically.
A perfect design of nature to enable this vitamin complex to do its job in your body. Many of them are protein-bound, such as iron, which is so-called heme-iron, a form much better utilized by the body than other forms of iron.
