What to Look for in a Supplement Company

This month we have been covering all things involving supplements!  It can be so overwhelming, with so many options to choose from and not knowing exactly what your body may or may not need.

We get it!  So we are here to help guide you with making the best choices possible. 

What to look for

  • Third-party independent testing: this is not required by law, but paid for by the supplement company. This often costs the company significantly in both the testing prices and also with batch re-shipping and delays if the supplements don’t pass the quality standards 
  • Some certifications include NSF international, US Pharmacopeia, Underwriters Laboratory, or Consumer Lab Seal
  • There are limited regulations on supplements, the FDA does not evaluate effectiveness, safety, or quality of supplements.  There’s no guarantee on batch to batch consistency or that what they say is in the product is actually in the product!
  • The company uses a certificate of analysis to guarantee what the supplement says is in the product actually IS IN IT!!!  … and it doesn’t include any harmful contaminants or additives
  • Xymogen uses E-pedigree: this is an integrative system that tracks every product to prevent counterfeit products from being sold.  As far as I know, this is the only company that uses E-pedigree system
  • Does the company use research based and clinical trial evidence or does it spend its money on marketing?
