Every Batch of our products are tested for up to 32 common contaminants, not just Salmonella & eColi, like the majority of our competitors (and some don’t do any testing at all, unless forced to because of a problem).
We try our best to avoid any problems, and the testing is the only way to insure our ratios, purity, and product consistency from batch to batch, year to year.
Our products are tested THREE TIMES by the highest human grade standards.
Our products are tested for all the heavy metals, including aluminum, lead, mercury, barium, and cadmium because those are things proven to not pass through the body. Heavy Metals absolutely can negatively alter quality of life, or longevity, years after taken.
Testing supplements is really important.
Many manufacturers’ only test for E.coli and Salmonella; but MD's Choice tests for a variety of key things...
MD's Choice also tests the bulk, then again after blending (to insure things are correct and consistent), and lastly at random after bottling. Then, on those rare occasions a product isn't 'sold through' before the typical 3 year date, samples are sent off for testing again - to see if they meet or exceed label specs and are good for another period of time (usually 1 to 3 years at a time, depending on the product).
The formula’s are ‘ours’ – developed specifically by us, but all our products are blended to our specifications, and bottled by pharmaceutical & high neutricetical grade facilities that are FDA inspected, ISO certified, and have cGMP certifications (certified Good Manufacturing Practices). Saving us millions of dollars on having our own facilities, production staff, clean rooms, and the maintenance of all that. Our products are NOT made in some out-building, bathtub, grain mill, bath tub, garage, barn, or backroom. In most cases, our human-grade animal products are the only ‘animal’ products blended and bottled at those facilities. It’s allowed because we are using 100% HUMAN GRADE INGREDIENTS, and human product standards! We felt quality of ingredients and manufacturing practices were vital, so these practices were established back in 1995.
