The dietary supplement industry can leave you with a lot of questions. There are so many brands and price points it can be difficult to know if you are getting a quality product.
Quality manufacturers should be testing for contaminants such as mold, microbial content, and that label claims are met. However time has shown that this level of testing can miss contaminants present in the formula.
You have probably heard of athletes failing drug tests due to a contaminated supplement. This is often not caught due to a variety of factors.
- Contaminated raw materials.
- Insufficiently cleaned manufacturing equipment or process.
- Brands knowingly putting a banned substance in their product.
Utilizing trustworthy suppliers and manufacturing partners can greatly reduce the potential for contaminants. An extra step is to specifically test for banned substances.
We go above and beyond the minimum standards to provide product transparency that has a dedication to quality and process standards.
