In the world of nutritional supplements, it's often the smaller, more passionate companies that are the most innovative. In this four-part series, I introduce four little-known wellness supplement companies who are on the cutting edge of modern nutritional science. I've spent many hours talking to the founders of these companies, and I am a regular customer of their products. You'll see more interviews and product reviews about them in the weeks ahead.

Each of these four gets an enthusiastic no-strings-attached recommendation from yours truly. Remember: I earn nothing from these products, and I take no money from nutritional supplement companies. (That's one advantage to getting your health news at NewsTarget.com, by the way -- you get the straight story on the best health products out there, not just the ones that we sell or get a commission on, because we don't sell any nutritional products, and we earn no money on their sales.)

These four companies join my list of highly-recommended nutritional supplement companies like Ola Loa, Ruth's Hemp Foods, Nutiva, Jay Robb, the Amazon Herb Co., and so on. For each of these companies, I also share which of their products I recommend the most. All of them sell directly to customers over the web.

Part one: Good Cause Wellness

Founded by Alan Friedman, a fitness enthusiast and family-oriented nutrition consumer, Good Cause Wellness not only offers some hard-to-find nutritional products that I personally use every day, they also donate 10 percent of net sales to health freedom organizations that fight for your right to buy nutritional supplements. Note that this donation is not 10 percent of profits, it's 10 percent of net sales (a much bigger number). They'll also be publicly posting those donations as proof of their commitment to supporting these important consumer advocacy organizations.

Just as importantly, GoodCauseWellness has an outstanding product lineup. Here are my favorites:

Antioxidant Defense System - PURPLE is essentially a superfood powder made of phytonutrient-rich plants (fruits and vegetables) that provide literally hundreds of different nutrients that support health, fight disease and protect the body from free radical damage. When I talk about eating "superfoods" in my articles and books, this is the kind of superfood I'm talking about. Read the ingredients on this product and you'll be amazed: pomegranate seeds, acai, goji berries, camu camu, mangosteen, elderberries, purple carrots (my favorite!) and many more. Check it out for yourself! You can blend this superfood powder into a smoothie or just drink it in a glass of water.

Antioxidant Defense System - RED is just like the purple product, above, except it's made with red fruits and vegetables: tomatoes, raspberries, astaxanthin, cherries, etc. As with the purple product, this tastes fantastic! If you've had trouble stomaching superfoods in the past, try this for a pleasant surprise. It's so good, you can just stir it into water and drink it straight. From looking at the ingredients, I can also tell this is an outstanding product for prostate health, joint pain, eye health, skin protection and cardiovascular support (among other benefits).

Chia seeds - You've heard me rave about chia seeds in the past. Finally, here's a great source for buying them. Shipping is very reasonable from GoodCauseWellness. Sprinkle chia seeds into smoothies or practically any recipe (pancakes, for example) and you'll boost your intake of omega-3 fatty acids, calcium and other chia seed nutrients.

Also be sure to check out GCW's Nopal powder (made from cactus) for controlling blood sugar and cholesterol, and their grape seed extract which, in my opinion, is one of nature's most powerful medicines for heart health. It's practically a must-have supplement for anyone with heart disease.

Summary: Great superfood supplements, chia seeds and agave nectar, too. Donates 10 percent of net sales to health freedom causes.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
