Manufacturers that are producing high end, pharmaceutical grade products adhere to strict quality controls, source premium raw materials and require their suppliers to meet rigorous testing by independent labs.

The quality of dietary supplements can be measured by:

  • Authenticity: The ingredients listed on the label must match the ingredients in the product.
  • Potency: The product will contain the labeled level of every key active ingredient throughout its shelf-life.    
  • Purity: The product does not contain unlisted additives, contaminants or fillers.
