Quality Control

We believe that product quality and innovation are fundamental to our long-term growth and success. Therefore, we have a commitment to research and development and to introducing innovative products to correspond with consumer trends and scientific research.

Through our research and development efforts, we seek to:

 

  • Test the safety, purity and potency of
  • Develop more effective and efficient means of producing ingredients for use in products
  • Develop testing methods for ensuring and verifying the consistency of the dosage of ingredients included in Nutraceutical’s products
  • Develop new, more effective product delivery forms
  • Develop new products either by combining existing ingredients used in nutritional supplements or identifying new ingredients that can be used in nutritional supplements

 

Nutraceutical’s efforts are designed to lead not only to the development of new and improved products, but also to ensure effective manufacturing quality control measures.

We have a cooperative arrangement with Weber State University in Ogden, Utah through which, among other things, the university provides Nutraceutical with access to certain laboratory space and equipment. The university has assigned one faculty member as a project director to coordinate the use of any projects undertaken at the university facility. Nutraceutical also conducts research and development in company-owned facilities. Nutraceutical currently employs various professionals in research and development and quality control with degrees in, among other things, chemistry, microbiology and engineering and, in many cases, these professionals have also received training in natural health food products. In addition, Nutraceutical retains the services of outside laboratories from time to time to validate its product standards and manufacturing protocols.

Nutraceutical’s quality control program seeks to ensure the superior quality of Nutraceutical’s products and that they are manufactured in accordance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). Nutraceutical’s processing methods are monitored closely to ensure that only quality ingredients are used and to ensure product purity. Nutraceutical retains the services of an outside GMP auditor firm to assist in its efforts to comply with GMPs.
