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.

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.

      I think the product works, but my problem is getting it in my system. A serving is 1/2 a teaspoon and when I mix it up 1/2 of it sticks to the side of the cup and some if it clumps if I don't get it stirred up fast. I prefer psyllium husk powder.

      I am totally happy with the purity of the glucomannan. Too soon to rate results. I take the powder with chocolate whey protein powder so no nasty flavour or bulk. It does fill me up, so suppresses my appetite. The price and quality are first rate and delivery time was very quick.

      Perhaps I just need to get used to this product, but I had a solid mass in my glass as opposed to something drinkable. I need to play with the water/powder ratio.

      i use this in an afternoon protein shake. the addition of a small amount of this powder makes the ice cube slush more creamier. if some of the people who only gave it 2 stars tried it this way - they would love it. also, any of these types of powders just added to liquid will not mix properly if it is just dumped on top. it needs to be sprinkled thinly and whisked with an actual wire whisk to dissolve properly.

      Great for filling you up. Start with 1 to 1 1/2 cups of water and ice cubes. Add any flavoring like chocolate or vanilla whey or soy protein and put 1/2 tsp Glucomannan on the top and shake well. The ice cubes keep it mixing while you shake it up. Let it sit in the refrig for a few minutes. When opened, if too thin add more Glucomannan, if too thick add more water and shake well again. I like it the consistency of pudding to be able to eat with a spoon like pudding. Once you get the wet to dry ratio, stick with the same amounts so you don't have any lumps. Or use a blender stick for a creamy blended "pudding". I have even added 1/4 canned pumpkin and stevia for the flavoring. Any flavoring will be great. Only eat about 1/4 cup and be sure to always drink a beverage with it to fill you up even more and to wash it down.
