You asked, we answered

ATEoftheWeek_0216 Q: I have ENERGY with an MFG date of January 2015. Is this product too old to take now? Also, has it lost some of its effectiveness?

A: If your products have been properly stored with intact seals then it is safe to consume them. But please note the flavor and other sensory attributes of the products may change with age. The products with MFGs should also be safe to consume if they are also stored properly with intact seals.

Q: Would you mind explaining how Liquid Cleanse cleanses your blood, liver, and kidneys?

A: Cleansing in general is a great way to keep the entire body healthy, including the blood, liver, and kidneys. Some people accomplish this with exercising, eating the right kinds of foods, and drinking plenty of water. Other individuals enjoy using products like Liquid Cleanse because the main ingredient, cascara sagrada, which is a dried extract of bark (Rhamnus purshiana)  promotes colon contractions. We recommend short-term use (7-10 day cycles) every few months and always drink plenty of water when using this product. This product is also commonly used to relieve the unpleasant effects of occasional constipation.

Q: I understand you source your Superfruits, among other products, from developing nations and I didn’t know what your standards were for ensuring that the people working in those nations were paid at a fair wage. Please let me know what Genesis PURE is doing to provide for the local populations working for Genesis PURE, for our products.

A: First, you are correct in that our products are sourced with raw materials from all over the world. We do this in order to get the highest quality ingredients. Unfortunately, we do not disclose sourcing information for any of our products to prevent the information from being leaked to our competitors. Second, fair trade generally has the connotation of imported goods, and the fair (wages, working conditions, culture) treatment of small producers. Genesis PURE products are produced in the U.S., so this doesn’t necessarily apply to us.  We, of course, inspect factories and always stress very high standards of not just housekeeping but also safety standards as applied to the hourly associates.
