Our research and development team has traveled the globe, forging relationships with farmers and suppliers as committed to quality and sustainability as we are. We take an ingredient's source seriously because this influences potency, bioavailability, and digestibility. Harvesting methods impact the environment and local populations.
Each product has a story that begins with its origin. Our Fish Oil is made from wild Alaskan salmon sustainably harvested from the pristine waters of the North Pacific. The natural environment and short lifespan of salmon ensures they are naturally free of pollutants and heavy metals.
We're raising the bar when it comes to clean production practices. We avoid the use of harsh solvents or processing materials that you wouldn't want to ingest (we don't either). Instead, we use gentle solvents that help retain the integrity of the nutrients in our vitamins and supplements.
Our turmeric extract is made using water and CO2, just the way that hot water is used to extract the flavor of tea leaves. Other turmeric products on the market, by contrast, are made using harsh solvents like acetone, which is commonly used as a paint thinner.
We take testing seriously. Testing is an essential step - several steps, actually - in our supply chain to ensure our products meet exacting specifications of active and inactive ingredients and that they are safe.
When we receive our ingredients from suppliers, we test to validate that what's in the product is exactly what's on our label. When our products are fully finished, they undergo another set of tests to ensure they meet rigorous health and safety standards. Both raw materials and finished products are tested in the United States.
We're proud of our supply chain. We also believe you should know where your supplements come from, so we’re transparent about ingredient sourcing, manufacturing locations and testing. We source our ingredients from the places in the world where they are cultivated best, from Ireland to India. All of our final production and testing is done in the United States at NSF and GMP certified facilities.
