About NOW Foods

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

NOW Commitments

  • Customer Focused and Information Driven - NOW believes that their products, services, and the decisions they make should be primarily influenced by the desires and needs of NOW customers. The decisions that NOW makes should be based on accurate information and therefore NOW places a high value on knowledge and learning within their organization.
  • Quality and Value Oriented - Acting in the best interest of NOW customers, NOW endeavors to produce the highest quality products at competitive prices. NOW's first priority is to maintain quality where it counts the most - in the products. NOW's exceptional cost-conscious team of employees then focuses their energies on driving costs down. Nurturing this competency of value drives NOW's ability to provide high quality products at the very best prices.
  • Natural is Better - NOW is convinced that natural products are better than their synthetic counterparts and produce better results in human health. Therefore, wherever possible, NOW strives to provide products that contain natural ingredients because they are better for their customers.

NOW Science
NOW experienced professional and technical staff formulate their products to be of the highest quality. NOW have a group of biochemists, chemists, nutritionists, and food technologists who review current science and nutritional parameters, and formulate their products to be effective for the intended use.

Serving sizes are based on doses from clinical studies and other published data. NOW contemporary formulas are designed to meet the health and wellness needs of today’s consumers. NOW use ingredients that have been tested for effectiveness in clinical trials and laboratory studies.

The heart of their science is third party independent research. NOW investigate and review clinical studies and other lab studies conducted on their ingredients and their formulas. Best science is used to support best formulations which lead to best quality.

NOW products are constantly being tested in clinical trials conducted at top universities and research centers around the country and in various parts of the world. NOW products are being tested to determine such things as effectiveness for joint support, quality of life for cancer patients, cardiovascular support, and athletic endurance. Effective products mean health and wellness benefits, which mean quality.

GMP Quality Assured
NOW's GMP certification covers standard operating procedures, employee training, product specifications, expiration dating, vendor certifications and much more. Standard operating procedures include sampling and testing incoming materials according to NOW Foods specifications, inspecting manufacturing processes, and testing finished products to specifications.

NOW™ Foods remains committed to its original goal – to produce the highest quality nutritional, herbal and body care products available…at prices people can afford. The company does this by sourcing our raw materials directly from the manufacturer, thereby relying less on brokers and distributors, and avoiding costly television and radio advertising. NOW Foods does not employ an outside sales force, relying instead on practical, cost-effective marketing methods such as mail promotions and no-pressure telephone sales. Its high-volume business has allowed it to build strong business ties with some of the best raw material producers in the industry. NOW Foods savings are passed on to its customers in every product it manufactures, every day.

    NOW Foods Glucosamine and MSM - 240 Vegetarian Capsules

    Now Foods Glucosamine and MSM's unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians, because it contains only Glucosamine from a vegetarian source and not from shellfish. NOW Foods Glucosamine & MSM is an essential substrate for the formation of glycosaminoglycans (GAG's) and proteoglycans, which are the main components of cartilage tissue. GAG's and proteoglycans trap and hold water, forming a dense fluid cushion within the joint and thus, provide lubrication and shock absorption. Now Foods MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of organic sulfur, a mineral necessary for the production of proteoglycans.

      This is the only joint supplement that works that does not contain shellfish. You can take it on empty stomach or with food. It really helps with my pain and the achy feeling in my knee when the weather changes.

      Serious arthritis in my neck & shoulders has been reduced to virtually no pain using just 3 pills a day. Just a small amount of pain if I try to rotate far to left or right. This glucosamine is vegetarian & includes MSM -- what a bonus!

      MSN Glucosamine and MSM capsules have been effective in reducing arthritis issues, particularly in my knees and elbows. I am 80 years old and am very active physically in a wellness program which includes three mornings a week in a gym, plus brisk daily walks of 30 to 40 minutes.

      This is a great supplement for bones and joints, especially for vegetarians/vegans because there is no animal material in it, no fish shells, no gel caps. I take it myself for an arthritic knee, along with a couple of other remedies. I also give it to my dog, as he definitely has issues with nerves, muscles, etc. We're on our third bottle (240) and I'm psyched about this supplement.

      I've been taking this for a few years now. I used to get soreness in my knees the day after being very active. Since taking this, I no longer suffer this soreness. I take 2 a day M-F.

      I've been taking NOW Vegetarian Glucosamine and MSM for about a year following a knee sprain. My Physical Therapist approved my taking it for a short term; he is of the opinion that I shouldn't take any product for over three months without taking a break of a month or two. I feel that the benefits which include reduced arthritic pain, in the uninjured knee, and a vastly decreased use of n-saids outweigh the risk of continuous use. This is my personal opinion, not a medical opinion.

      I have used this product in the past but it was hard to find in the local stores. It helps me move better with less pain which enhances my ability to work more and longer. I am happy that I found it here. It was easy to order and came faster than I expected. I am very pleased with my order.
