Our Guarantee

How are we so confident in the quality of our products? What separates us from the big box vitamin and supplement retailers?

Simply put, our products are not only comprised of high quality ingredients; they also have the ability to change lives and reduce our carbon footprint through sustainable practices. We invite you to explore the three areas of our business that make this possible.  

OUR SUPPLIERS

It is important to note that although manufactured in the USA, our products contain ingredients from many different suppliers from all over the world. We believe that the best ingredients come directly from the natural region in which they are grown. For example, some of our ingredients include:

  • Organic Cocoa from Fair Trade Certified facilities in the Dominican Republic

  • Friend of the Sea certified Omega-3 from oceans off the coast of South America

  • Non-irradiated Psyllium Husk and 100% Organic Spirulina from India

  • High grade whole leaves from Chinese Ginkgo trees

  • Non-GMO Soybeans and Whey Protein from the USA. 

In order to ensure the highest quality ingredients, our suppliers must go through a thorough process to ensure the highest quality raw materials upfront. For example:

  • Before any ingredients are shipped, each vendor must complete a Supplier Qualification Form developed by our manufacturer’s quality control department.

  • As a GMP-certified facility, our manufacturer is required to test all incoming raw material to ensure the highest quality from the start.

  • All raw materials require a Certificate of Analysis, Identification, and Verification of Results. 

Our Fair Trade® Certified suppliers offer the end consumer a way to reduce poverty through their purchases. Fair Trade Certified products are produced in a socially-responsible manner, because they are guaranteed to meet strict social, economic and environmental standards.

Our Friend of the Sea® Certified suppliers are concerned with the conservation of the marine habitat. They only use sustainable and environmentally friendly fishing practices. Their vertically integrated supply chain allows traceability from the date, species, and shipping vessel our raw materials were derived from. They also have systems in place for recycling, reuse of waste, and energy reduction.
