We are proud to welcome Gaia Herbs to the Oregon Natural Market family of high-quality plant-based nutritional formulas. Since Gaia Herbs was just a seedling in 1987, they have remained true to their purpose: connecting people, plants, and planet to create healing. They knew then what many are coming to realize now—plants and people evolved together, that we are inextricably linked, and that plants hold the wisdom we need to heal. First and foremost, Gaia is:
- Plant-Powered, harnessing traditional wisdom and delivering nature’s vitality.
- Potent, delivering full-spectrum formulas for an herb’s full array of beneficial compounds.
- Pure, using nothing artificial, and rigorously quality tested at every step.
- Transparent, ensuring that consumers know what’s in all their supplement formulas
The majority of herbs used in Gaia’s formulations are grown on their 350-acre plot of land, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. The land is rich in alluvial soil and contains amazing biodiversity. Gaia Herbs Farm is a living laboratory for the latest organic planting and cultivation methods. Each year they produce over three million individual plants, representing 20-40 species of herbs. The moment you step onto the farm, Hawthorn and Ginkgo trees—symbolizing the heart and mind of Gaia Herbs—greet you with their beauty and wisdom. They grow fields of flowering Echinacea, fragrant Lemon Balm, and brilliant California Poppy, all nourished by the clear mountain waters flowing through the valley. They nurture and observe each plant, allowing it to flourish in the sun until the right moment to harvest. By mirroring the growing conditions of Nature, they ensure the purity, potency, and integrity of each plant.
