Quality Control



We test every ingredient and every product we make for purity, potency, and contamination.

The outstanding quality of the product we deliver to you is what we are most passionate about. We are very proud of the quality control standards we’ve set up and follow through every phase of product development. From the moment the raw materials enter our manufacturing plant, until finished products appear in your home, we ensure every product meets our incredibly high standard of excellence.

In today's competitive marketplace it’s more critical than ever before that we protect our brand at all costs. That’s why we produce our product using drug manufacturing standards which are higher than those required for nutritional supplements. Even though our strict guidelines are not required by law, we believe following them makes our products far superior, while also providing our customers with an added measure of assurance.

Our testing methods are so rigorous, we catch 100% of all contaminated raw material BEFORE they ever make it through our doors... and into our product.

Unmatched quality doesn't happen by accident. Here is our 3-Phase testing in detail:

Phase 1: Incoming raw material testing

IDENTITY - To confirm the ID of a given raw material and the accuracy of the Certificate of Analysis (COA) we use FTNIR (near infrared technology)

PURITY - Vendor COA claims are checked for purity by HPLC, GC or ICP.

HEAVY METALS - We test for Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead and Mercury. Heavy Metals must be under the USP specified guidelines.

MICROBIAL - We test for Total Plate count, Total Yeast and Mold count and Coliform bacteria to make sure that the Raw Material complies with the USP, AHPA and FDA guidelines.

PATHOGENS - Raw Materials are tested for E. coli, Salmonella, and Staphylococcus aureus pathogens (as needed).

DRUG SCREEN - Raw Materials are tested for banned steroidal substances (as needed).

Phase 2: During production

CLEANLINESS - We perform ATP swab tests prior to batch production and allergen swab tests as needed to ensure equipment is free of potential contamination or microbes.

IDENTITY CHECK - We use FTNIR to confirm the ID of a given in-process mix to ensure it contains the correct raw ingredients.

PURITY CHECK- Purity is checked by using HPLC, GC, and/or ICP to ensure the in-process mix will create a final product that meets label claims.

Phase 3: Finished product testing:

IDENTITY CHECK - We use FTNIR to confirm the ID of a Finished Product.

PURITY - We check the purity by HPLC, GC, and/or ICP if there is a label claim on the Finished Product COA.

MICROBIAL CHECK - We test for Total plate count, Total Yeast and Mold count and Coliform bacteria to make sure that the Finished Product complies with specifications.

PATHOGENS CHECK - We test again for the following pathogens, E. coli, Salmonella, and Staphylococcus aureus (as needed).

ALLERGEN - We list the allergens, if present in the Finished Product.

HEAVY METALS CHECK - We test the Finished Product for Heavy Metals contaminants (Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead and Mercury) and make sure they are under the USP specified guidelines.

DRUG SCREEN CHECK - We use an outside 3rd party laboratory to conduct GC-MS/ HPLC-MS testing on finished products for banned steroidal substances, if needed.

What does all this really mean?

100% of all inbound raw material will be FDA validated.

100% of all finished products will be FDA validated.

100% of finished product will always meet label claims.
