The Company You Keep: High-Quality Manufacturing

Written by on July 11, 2011 in The Company You Keep, Why USANA? with 3 Comments

Editor’s Note: The following is the first in a series of blog posts in conjunction with an article written by Dan Macuga, USANA vice president, on the Corporate Blog. This series — The Company You Keep: 5 Keys to Choosing a Nutritional Supplements Manufacturer — identifies attributes you should take into account as you consider which company is right for you.

Today: High-Quality Manufacturing

USANA, as a nutritional supplements manufacturer, is held to strict manufacturing standards. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires dietary supplement manufacturers to follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for dietary supplements. USANA, however, voluntarily follows the more stringent GMP for pharmaceuticals, which regulates virtually every aspect of manufacturing, and recently was named an FDA-registered facility.

USANA also voluntarily tests its supplements to make sure they meet trusted U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) standards and specifications for potency, uniformity, and disintegration. Furthermore, internationally USANA is regularly inspected and audited by Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to ensure its GMP standards are met.

USANA believes strongly in the value of manufacturing its supplements in house at its Salt Lake City facility. Doing this allows us to keep a close eye on every step of the production process, from extensive vetting of raw ingredients to conducting tests at various points in the production process to submitting our products for tests by third-party organizations. Plus, we’re able to use the best equipment available from start to finish.

What to Consider

When you’re looking for a supplements company, it’s important to know how the products are being manufactured. We encourage you to do your own research as well. What you put into your body should be the most rigorously tested supplements you can find. Consider the following:

  • Does the company care enough to spend the money necessary to manufacture products in house?
  • Does the company adhere to pharmaceutical level GMPs?
  • Can the company ensure its customers will see no contamination, that the potency of each pill is guaranteed, and that the ingredients are mixed properly so that each time you take that supplement, you can be positive that what’s on the label is in each pill?

USANA is proud to offer the highest quality nutritional supplements available. Don’t cheat yourself when your health is involved; stick with proven products.
