RUMORS: True or False?

Unfortunately, we live in a world where many people thrive on gossip, rumors, and looking for the worst in everything. Sadly, those who work hard to do the most good in the world are often the target of others who just want to hurt them and bring them down. So, on that note, we’d like to address the most common rumors we hear going around regarding HealthForce:

Question: What is the deal with the Prop 65 Warning on HealthForce products sold in California?

California law contains what is known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, also referred to as Proposition 65 (“Prop 65”). Prop 65 is a unique California-only “right to know” law that requires products sold in California to bear warning notices about potential exposure to any of the over 800 substances listed by the state. As a practical matter, Prop 65 warnings are required for any product (food or non-food) that exposes an individual in California to virtually any detectable amount of a listed chemical.

Trace amounts of lead listed under California’s Prop 65 are found in some of even the most carefully selected and sourced ingredients contained in many natural botanical supplements. Lead is a naturally occurring element that is found throughout the entire environment, including in soils where it can be taken up by natural plants and herbs all over the world.

Question: What is the deal with the HealthForce logo? Is it a cult symbol?

We’ve actually lost count of how many times people have called to ask if the HealthForce logo is a devil worship symbol. WHAT??!! Who ARE these people? HELLO! It looks like a radiant angelic being of light! How anyone could misconstrue a beautiful radiant angel to represent devil worship is beyond us! Makes us wonder what goes on in some people’s minds!!! If you take a close look, you’ll see that there are no horns, no tail, and no pitchfork. Here’s the real story: Our original founders spent much time looking for an image that would capture the essence of what the HealthForce product line is all about. They had the image in their minds but weren’t sure how to translate it on paper, so they looked through thousands of images of early 1990’s black and white clip art to find what they were envisioning. Eventually they found two images (one of an angel and one of rays of radiant light) which they combined and altered to develop a custom image that to them was the embodiment of health, well being, radiance, altruism, and goodness. The HealthForce logo is meant to powerfully symbolize these attributes, in addition to regeneration, rejuvenation, and the highest of integrity and ethics.

Question: What is the deal with the founders?

We regularly hear all sorts of rumors about our founders. These rumors sometimes surface when products are out of stock, whether due to raw material shortages, regulatory delays, or other hold-ups. On more than one occasion, our reps were even told by customers and health food store employees that it was because the founders had split up and were fighting over the products. This one is just plain laughable. The truth is, running an ethical company in a not-so-ethical world, and dealing with the stress of the constant battles one must contend with in this position, eventually takes its toll. So our original founders changed direction entirely and relocated with the goal of going off grid and raising a family as they set out to pursue other dreams and write books that make a positive difference in the world. In order to do so, they needed to get a lot of projects off their plates and go offline in order to experience some much-needed personal privacy and focus in these new directions. Meanwhile, HealthForce has an amazing team of individuals who hold the same level of ethics and integrity, and work hard behind the scenes with a commitment to maintaining our founders’ original vision and keeping it intact. To sum it up, our founders’ mission to make the world a better place continues, and HealthForce is the same hard-core company it has always been!

Question: What about other rumors?

Various other rumors come and go, including the ones about HealthForce selling out to Big Pharma (NEVER!), testing on animals (DOUBLE NEVER!!), and going out of business (this one HAS almost happened several times due to various reasons, including unusually low profit margins because profits are NOT our priority; helping people IS!); and there are likely other rumors we’re not even aware of.
