Ever wonder if a dietary supplement really offers the right kind of ingredient, amount of an ingredient, or the level of potency of an ingredient that it claims to? If there’s one thing people should know before ever making a dietary supplement purchase, it’s that good manufacturing practices are a crucial component when it comes to the efficacy. There should be no mistake when it comes to getting the right quality for your health.
Isagenix® understands that good manufacturing can mean the difference between absolutely no effect and fantastic results. The company makes quality and your optimal health highest priority. We pride ourselves on the commitment to what we like to call ‘No Compromise’ quality.
The Isagenix ‘No Compromise’ Quality Policy is extensive and thorough – set up to ensure that all of our products are made in accordance with the highest standards of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for dietary supplements. The company strives to meet and exceed the very GMPs that the Food and Drug Administration requires under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, as well as other global market regulatory bodies. These guidelines cover authenticity, quarantine/release procedures, potency and purity testing of raw materials and finished products, cleanliness of the facility, employee training, documentation and other areas. We also adhere to detailed written Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to ensure consistency and safety in each phase of our manufacturing process.
Rigorous testing of all raw materials
To start with, Isagenix has an SOP that requires every raw material that arrives in our manufacturing facilities to be immediately quarantined, thoroughly inspected and tested for identity and authenticity. Any raw material that does not meet the standards or specifications of the Isagenix Material Review Board is rejected or destroyed. Isagenix requires industry-standard evaluation methods to determine potency, strength and composition of each ingredient.
The company actively seeks to source raw materials only from suppliers with a proven track record of sustainability and high quality. In addition, the company uses certified organic raw materials whenever possible if they meet standards of purity, safety and potency.
Rigorous testing for possible contamination
All raw materials are also rigorously tested for safety. The safety of raw materials is the highest priority for Isagenix. Rigorous testing is performed for:
- Microbial activity – total aerobic bacterial, yeast and mould, salmonella and E. coli strains, and other bacterial strains
- Pesticides, herbicides and fungicides
- Heavy Metals – all botanicals are tested for the presence of lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic
- PCBs and dioxins (fish oil) – each batch of fish oil is third-party tested to confirm undetectable levels of heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins.
Finished Product Verification
Only after full testing of ingredients does Isagenix allow their products to be manufactured. Then, aside from initial inspection, Isagenix is one of the few companies in the world to have a surveillance program that inspects and re-analyses finished products. It involves sending our products for independent laboratory testing for all its claims to ensure that our products fully meet the label claim and support our published expiration date. It is our Finished Product Verification and Stability Testing Process.
The Finished Product Verification and Stability Testing Process and overall ‘No Compromise’ Quality Policy is what enables Isagenix to distribute these products in places across the globe. Isagenix products are now available in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Columbia, Mexico, Singapore and will be available in Indonesia in early June. These areas and countries often have strict regulations that surpass those of the United States. Isagenix meets the regulations for all global regions.
There are few other dietary supplement companies that can boast the same level of quality assurance commitment. Unlike others, Isagenix doesn’t cut any corners in making nutritional products and spends millions each year on independent analysis of ingredients and auditing by third-party qualified organisations. By putting this much care into nutritional products, Isagenix knows it’s doing right by its customers and their health.
