With Passover right around the corner, those keeping kosher may not be aware that Professional Supplement Center carries many high quality brands that manufacture kosher-certified supplements. For some, the laws of kashrut, Jewish dietary restrictions, are observed not only during Passover but are strictly followed year round. In regard to supplementation, these dietary laws stipulate that those in good health, who take vitamins or supplements for prevention purposes or to support their overall wellness, should preferably take kosher-certified products when available. In short, kosher certification identifies products that are proper for consumption under strict kashrut guidelines.
Kosher certification is provided by a third-party certifying Jewish agency. A representative of that agency thoroughly inspects every aspect of the manufacturing facility and processes, including the sourcing of raw materials, ingredient adherence to Kosher guidelines and the final finished products. Depending on the product, Rabbinical supervision ensures that the finished product is compliant with kosher laws. Kosher certification ensures that no ineligible ingredients are utilized, such as those derived from shellfish. While there are additional restrictions for the observant during Passover, Jews and non-Jews alike are partial to kosher-certified supplements for their purity, quality, safety and strict manufacturing compliance.
