Strict Manufacturing Standards
The company meets or exceeds all current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) requirements for food manufacturers. At every step in the process from the testing and quarantine of raw materials to the scanning and bar coding of tablet, capsule, and softgel batches – quality control inspectors analyze certification and document production to ensure specifications are met, rejecting inputs and outputs that fail. Testing equipment includes the state-of-the-art Fourier Transform-Near Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-NIR) device, which performs a quantitative analysis and identity check of incoming raw materials.
High Quality Ingredients
NAI tests potency to ensure promised efficacy over a product’s lifetime; tests purity to ensure there are no harmful pathogens, herbicides, pesticides or heavy metals; and tests quality to ensure proper weight, ingredient homogeneity, color standardization, hardness, thickness, dissolving, absorption and integrity. Testing equipment includes stateof-the-art High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Emission Spectrophotometry (ICP). With facilities located in the United States, Switzerland, and Japan, NAI fulfills the needs of customers around the world.
Member of the Council of Responsible Nutrition
Natural Alternatives International (NAI) is a member of the prestigious Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN). CRN members adhere to a strong code of ethics, comply with dosage limits, and manufacture dietary supplements to high quality standards under Good Manufacturing Practices. Founded in 1973, CRN is the science-based trade association of the dietary supplement industry. Members are dedicated to enhancing the public’s health through improved nutrition, including the appropriate use of dietary supplements. “In a world where many choose compromise over principle, NAI and Dr. Cherry have elected the narrower path,” says Mark A. Le Doux, NAI Founder and CEO. “This path is one that requires adherence to sound business principles and one that has generated the finest supplements for personal use that money can buy – all at affordable pricing.”
