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. NOW structure/function claims are based on science for active ingredients, and on nutritional science for nutritional content. 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.

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.

      There is nothing I dislike about this product. At my age, 77, it certainly solves my digestive problems and I take one at each meal. This is my third year on your plant derived enzymes and I would never do with out it. NOW is a great brand. Thank you so much for offering it. The price is great. I am very happy. Frank

      Our family has been taking Now Plant Enzymes for about 2 years now. It's the one supplement I wouldn't do without. We have food allergies as well as some sensitivities. It's helped greatly when we have inadvertently come in contact with something we shouldn't have eaten. I've noticed that when I run out, I struggle more with being tired. It must take more out of me to digest my food when I don't take it. I also have trouble digesting certain foods like nuts when I don't take it. I highly recommend Now Plant Enzymes. I've also taken their Super Enzymes and can't tolerate them. They have ox bile in them and I think they are too strong for me. We also take Ginger to help digest protein and Lecithin to help digest fats.

      I had been taking Tri-Gest every once in a while when my stomach hurt and that worked. However, my stomach started hurting every time I ate lunch, so I did the Lucky Vitamin search for enzymes and chose this one. I take 1 cap before or during eating out for lunch and there is no more pain or bloating. Even the very first time I took the capsule it was and still is as if I have not eaten anything. I also research every product before taking it and gather as much info as possible. So after heavy research on this product and enzymes in general all I have to say is - I love it, love it, love it!

      Maltodextrin (one of the ingredients this product contains) gives me heart palpitations and acid reflux. I am switching to Now Foods Super Enzymes. I hope it will work better for me.
