You want natural products that you feel good about.
To ensure you’re getting what you’re looking for in a natural product, we use comprehensive laboratory testing.
At NOW® we’ve made a significant investment in in-house labs so we can test our products at multiple stages during production. We’re one of the few manufacturers that have this kind of in-house testing capability.
In just one month, we may perform as many as 16,000 individual tests. We test in order to meet US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for dietary supplement manufacturing. But we also go beyond these requirements.
Here’s what we test . . . and why:
We make sure that the raw materials that come through our facilities’ doors, as well as supplements formulated and manufactured off site, meet GMP standards.
And we don’t stop with the materials arriving at our doorstep . . .
To make sure the products you buy from us with confidence are contaminant-free, we test various sites throughout our manufacturing plant for the presence of unwanted microbes.
And finally, when everything is mixed and packaged, we test our finished products according to the testing requirements set out in the FDA cGMPs. This final round of testing ensures the product matches our specifications and is contaminant-free at the end of the production line.
You can test all you want. But if you don’t pay attention to two factors, the tests aren’t worth much at all. For this reason . . .
Lab instruments are only as good as the people who use them.
You can be confident NOW’s products are among the best the market has to offer thanks to the extensive testing we do every step along the way.
