Third-Party Verification

POTENCY GUARANTEE

 

Independently Tested Potent & Pure Quality Supplements

The company that produces the products that we recommend was founded in 1992 by a premier microbiologist and immunologist.  It is a science-based company that develops scientifically advanced nutritional, personal-care, and weight management products.

The company was founded with a mission to manufacture the highest quality products without compromise, products that people can trust.  Because poor manufacturing can destroy great science, this is one of the few companies to manufacture most of its products in its own state-of-the-art facility.  To ensure that the formulas developed are produced consistently, the same process is followed each time manufacturing begins.  When raw ingredients first arrive at the manufacturing facility, they are immediately quarantined until they are tested for purity, potency, and quality.  If an ingredient fails to meet set standards, it is rejected and returned to the supplier.

As the tablets are being manufactured, they are tested for hardness, thickness, disintegration, fragility, and weight uniformity. An inappropriate thickness can indicate an imbalance in ingredients, just as a slight variance in compression can result in tablets being too hard to disintegrate in the stomach, or too soft, causing them to break apart in the bottle.

Before packaging, the final product is tested once more for potency and purity.  After the products are packaged, the foil seals, labels, and cotton are double-and triple-checked by both machines and people.  Each step in the quality assurance process is accompanied by a written, detailed procedure.

Every dietary supplement produced by the company carries a potency guarantee, which ensures that what is stated on the label is actually contained in the product.  The flagship nutritional supplement product, is a comprehensive vitamin, antioxidant, and mineral dietary supplement that contains more than 40 active ingredients and extracts, far more than the 24 vitamins and minerals commonly considered to be adequate.  Their most commonly used supplements, (multi-vitamins, mutli-minerals, and wide-range of antioxidants), higher doses of calcium, magnesium, grape seed extract, etc., have all been exhaustively tested by NSF International and have been found to contain all ingredients stated on the label.  NSF is an independent, not-for-profit organization that helps protect consumers by certifying products and writing standards for food, water, air and consumer goods.

In 2007 the Federal Drug Administration finalized the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for dietary supplements to follow those as strict as those followed by the pharmaceutical industry, as required to do under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act.  Prior to this, many manufacurers of nutritional supplements followed manufaturing practices that were established for food, which were far less stringent.  Since the time the company we recommend was founded in 1992, the founder, a premier scientist dedicated to optimizing the health of the cells made the decision that his company would voluntarily follow the higher, more stringent Good Manufacturing Practices followed by the pharmaceutical industry.  Although all companies are required to follow these standards now, from the very beginning the  company we recommend manufactured all of its products according to these higher standards, meaning this company has been, and will continue to go the extra mile to ensure quality for better health.  

Pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are federally mandated guidelines for the production of over-the-counter drugs, and are now applied to nutritional supplements.  Pharmaceutical GMP cover virtually every aspect of drug (and now nutritional supplement) manufacturing, including facility design and maintenance, raw material specification and control, supplier validation, product design and testing, employee training, process control, finished product release, and complaint handling.  The company we recommend has followed these standards since its founding in 1992, years before it was mandated by law in 2007; because it was the right thing to do to ensure better health.

In several countries around the world, such as Australia for example, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), which regulates dietary supplements, mandates that manufacturers follow a set of GMP identical to pharmaceutical GMP in the United States.  As an Australian supplier, this company is regularly inspected and audited by the TGA to ensure that we meet their GMP standards.  Most recently, our company was audited in June 2006 by the TGA and passed with ease.

Aside from meeting the criteria of regular TGA audits, and prior to the required 2007 requirement that all supplement manufacturers follow stringent GMPs followed by the pharmaceutical industry, the company voluntarily obtained additional third-party verification of its GMP status.  The manufacturing facility was certified to be in compliance with GMP requirements set forth in NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2006, Dietary Supplements by NSF International.  According to NSF, "GMP registration reflects [a] continued commitment to ensuring quality and satisfaction and gives companies confidence that their organization operates in conformance to established GMP."  Obviously, this high standard will continue.

 

What About The Amount of Ingredients Contained in the Bottle?

What is NOT a standard in the industry of nutritionals supplements is for all manufacturers to have all the amounts of ingredients in the bottles stated on the label.  Often when analyzed, only about half of the ingredients of what is stated on the label is found in the bottle.  That is why it is so important to have third-party verification by such independent labs, such as Consumer Labs.  Consumer Labs, an independent laboratory dedicated to "identifying the best quality health and nutritional products through independent testing," have analyzed many of the main nutrtional supplement products we recommend, and found each one they tested to have the potency and purity stated on the label.

 

In addition, the products we recommend are listed in the Physician's Desk Reference (PDR) and the Canadian Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties (CPS). 

It is the mission of the nutritional supplement company we recommend to develop and provide the highest quality, science-based products.  By rigorously testing each product for potency and purity and by having guaranteed amounts of products in the bottle, with up to a million-dollar guarantee that no banned substances can be traced back to our products that would cause an athlete to be banned from their sport, the company sets the standard for excellence in dietary supplement manufacturing.  Once again, these products are truly Nutritionals You Can Trust.

 

The flagship Set of Antioxidants and Minerals and The Combination Health Pack of Nutritional Supplements Rate 'Best of the Best' Out of 1,600 Products Evaluated in Canada and The United States.


The company we recommend, a leading global health supplement manufacturer, once again received 5-Star Gold Standard ratings for its nutritional products in the much-anticipated 4th and latest edition of the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements.™

Author Lyle MacWilliam MSc, FP, a former biochemist and educator, released the 1st edition of the guide in 1999 to help consumers make informed, scientifically based decisions about nutritional supplements.  The latest edition features detailed comparisons of more than 1,600 products based on a blended standard created from published recommendations of 12 nutritional authorities and 18 rating criteria developed from scientific literature. 

The flagship nutritional supplement products, a set of antioxidants, vitamins & minerals, and a combination health pack of various commonly used supplements both received 5-Star Gold Standard ratings and the NutriSearch Gold Medal of Achievement™.  The company is no stranger to this recognition as its products were rated the number one nutritional supplements in the first, second and third editions of this guide.

According to the comparative guide, companies that receive 5-Star Gold Ratings must meet the "highest standards of quality in research, formulations and manufacturing."  The guide also noted that companies awarded the NutriSearch Gold Medal of Achievement™ have gone to considerable expense to meet and exceed the most stringent of manufacturing standards.  The company we recommend was one of only four companies rated this highly, and asked by the publishers to include a company description within the latest edition of the guide.
