OUR STORY

Genesis is a family owned and operated vitamin and herb shop located in Naples Florida. We take pride in every supplement we allow on our shelves and research all the ingredients and integrity of the companies we order from so you don’t have to. We take on the burden of making sure products are non-gmo, either verified or PCR tested, free of toxic binders and fillers, and make sure our suppliers are using the strictest methods of quality control. We won’t carry a supplement we ourselves wouldn’t take. Our goal and passion is to get health products in the hands of the customers that they can both trust and afford.

The Products

Why Non-GMO?

GMO stands for “Genetically Modified Organism.” They do not occur naturally in nature and are what some like to call “frankenfoods” of the food industry. They are created by a technique called gene splicing. This experimental technology merges DNA from two or more different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral DNA. Most all GMO’s that are created are made so that they can withstand incredibly high doses of sprayed herbicides and pesticides/insecticides. Some GMO’s, such as corn crops, even have pesticides bred directly into the corn itself so that when insects try to eat the corn their stomachs explode and they die. There have been many third party experiments and testings done showing the negative effects that these crops have on the body, yet still GM crops are free to be released to the public in whatever quantity the biotech industry wants.

Lack of Safety Information

The majority of developed nations do not consider GMO’s to be safe, and it seems that every month more and more countries are either banning or requiring the labeling of GMO products. Currently, in the US there is no requirement or restriction of these products, although many bills have been presented by the people to do so. Currently, the best way of voting GMO’s out of our food system is at the register. Every time you purchase an item you are voting to keep it GM or not.

I like going to the store for personal ONE on ONE service. It’s a small store but everything I need  from herbs to make up. The owner has GREAT recommendations about different products and she does practice what she preaches.
