Schiff History

Schiff, a leader in the natural supplement industry since its beginnings in 1936, is one of the most trusted and respected brands due to its focus on research, innovations and delivery of high quality dietary supplements.

In 1921, at the age of 19, Eugene Schiff immigrated to the United States from Hungary and entered the College of Pharmacy (now Wayne University) in Detroit, Michigan, where he majored in pharmaceutics. Upon becoming a pharmacist, Schiff opened a drug store in Detroit, but soon realized his real interest was in foods with special health features.

In the late 1930s, Schiff pioneered the use of whey for human consumption and formed Schiff Bio-Foods, a whey packaging company. He began selling packaged whey at his own drug store and to a few other local drug stores. A year later, he gave up his store and decided to focus on the manufacturing and packaging of health foods.

Realizing that health food stores were selling synthetic vitamins rather than supplements made from natural products, Schiff began to study and experiment with whole foods such as brown rice, brewer's yeast, wheat germ and liver. He found that these foods were naturally rich in vitamins and minerals. Schiff began to develop vitamins and minerals that best utilized and enhanced their natural properties.

One of Schiff's major breakthroughs was finding that rose hips provided a more concentrated source of vitamin C than orange juice. Schiff was the first to introduce this vitamin C source to America. Schiff also was the leader in producing the first natural source multi-vitamin, Schiff's V-Complete.

In 1949 Schiff moved his business to Jersey City, New Jersey. By 1954 business was booming and Schiff built a manufacturing plant and laboratory in South Hackensack, New Jersey. This building was a model for quality control and further helped to establish the Schiff brand as a trustworthy source of natural ingredients. In 1962 Schiff built a new 30,000-square-foot plant in Moonachie, New Jersey. By 1969, the Moonachie plant had doubled in size. In 1989 Schiff was acquired by Weider Nutrition International, now Schiff Nutrition International, and relocated to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1991.

Schiff Researches & Manufactures It

Product research is at the core of Schiff's philosophy. The Schiff research team continuously scour the globe in search of new ingredients to help support every area of health. Members of the research team are degreed professionals, both internal and outside expert consultants.

Schiff manufactures products in its own highly controlled, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at its Salt Lake City headquarters. Schiff follows a standardized set of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for nutritional supplements that was developed by the National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA), the largest dietary supplement trade association in the United States. The NNFA established the GMPs as a standard for self-testing the manufacturing process to ensure the quality, purity and label integrity of dietary supplements. For example, to prevent the possibility of room-to-room contamination during the ingredient mixing process, mixing rooms are pressurized at Schiff's facility and the doors close automatically.

Schiff Tests It

Schiff offers an unconditional, money-back guarantee on each of its products for purity, freshness and labeled potency. In today's complex dietary supplement market, it's hard for consumers to know what to buy or which brand provides consumers with purest and highest quality nutrition. That's why Schiff guarantees the purity and potency of its products with stringent quality control at every point of the manufacturing, packaging and distribution process.

Schiff's chemists and microbiologists test products to ensure that they meet the brand's strict standards for identity, potency, stability and purity. Raw ingredients, manufacturing processes and finished products are monitored to make certain that products are produced with the highest level of quality. Additionally, a computerized statistical control system automatically checks products at regular intervals during the manufacturing process to ensure physical quality.

Third Parties Approve It

Schiff has achieved an "A" compliance rating in the NNFA's GMP Third Party Certification Program. Designed to standardize dietary supplement product integrity and quality, the NNFA's GMP program includes third-party inspections and comprehensive audits in the area of personnel, plant and grounds, sanitation, equipment, quality operations, chemical and microbiological analysis, production and process controls, and warehouse, distribution, and post-distribution practices. This program ensures that these elements of Schiff's manufacturing process are reviewed to provide reasonable assurance that the processes are sufficiently controlled so that products meet their purported quality.

Additionally, Schiff products have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia, which ensures the quality, safety and efficacy of therapeutic products sold and marketed in Australia and the South Pacific.

Schiff Frequently Asked Questions

I have heard that the dietary supplement industry is unregulated. Why are there not some controls and assurances of public safety?
Dietary supplements are most definitely regulated, and any reports that the industry is unregulated are untrue. The Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act prohibits misbranding and adulterations of food, drugs, and dietary supplements. DSHEA(Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act) provides procedures for making claims about dietary supplements and how they affect the structure and function of the body. Further, the FDA reviews all statements made in labeling. Dietary supplements are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. As with any product, Schiff recommends that users read and follow all directions.

I hear some health care professionals say that dietary supplements are dangerous and are not needed if I eat a good diet. Is this true?
No to both questions. The FDA has removed or prevented the introduction of dietary supplements that were shown to pose hazards for the public. Dietary supplements have shown a tremendous safety record, as would be expected for health-promoting products. In fact, food is more of a hazard than dietary supplements could ever be. Also, established and reputable dietary brands, such as Schiff, have internal guidelines that prevent questionable or unsafe products from being considered. Warning and Caution statements appear on dietary supplement product labels if there are any contraindications known. Few, if any, Americans routinely eat a “good” diet, as shown repeatedly by U.S. Government surveys. Variable intake of essential nutrients may be good enough to prevent classical nutrient deficiency diseases, but practically every health condition has been linked to inadequate dietary intake of healthy foods. Dietary supplements contain healthy substances derived from foods, and should be thought of as part of a healthy diet. Furthermore, there is now considerable scientific evidence that optimal intake of some nutrients, like vitamin E, is impossible even from a healthy diet. In other words, more is better for some nutrients. Since over half of all Americans take some type of dietary supplements, it is obvious that most Americans believe they need to improve their diets, and dietary supplements are a good way.

What are dietary supplements?
Dietary supplements are their own product category separate from foods and drugs. Dietary supplements is the correct term, although nutritional supplements, supplements, vitamins and nutraceuticals are words that have been used to describe dietary supplements. Dietary supplements are products containing nutrients that are able to affect the structure or function of the body. Traditionally, dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbs and other dietary substances.

What are minerals?
Minerals are inorganic elements that are essential to the nutrition of all humans. Minerals are needed for a variety of purposes ranging from bone and blood formation to energy production. The 20 essential minerals are either major minerals (calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulfur) or trace minerals (boron, chromium, cobalt, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, silicon, vanadium and zinc) depending on the amount that is present in the body. If a diet is lacking adequate amounts of one or more mineral, deficiencies may develop. For example, deficiencies of calcium are linked to bone loss, and deficiencies of iron are linked to some anemias.

What are RDAs?
The Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) are a set of nutrient and energy standards developed by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences. Periodically, a group of nutritional experts meet to review the latest science to help develop nutritional allowances for maintenance of good health. RDAs are defined as the levels of intake of essential nutrients judged to be adequate to meet the known nutrient needs of healthy persons. However, RDAs are not designed to determine optimal intake, and they do not consider the health benefits of non-essential nutrients.

What are some of the more popular or important dietary supplements?
Multiple vitamin/mineral supplements are the most popular dietary supplement, and provide broad-based nutritional support with a large number of nutrients. Antioxidants are also popular and important for long-term health. These would include vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, selenium and a host of other nutrients. Calcium and other minerals are important for bone health. Joint products containing glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates have become extremely popular as they have been shown to support healthy joints if used consistently over time.

What are vitamins?
Vitamins are organic substances naturally found in foods. Body processes such as growth, maintenance and tissue repair require 13 essential vitamins. If a certain vitamin is deficient in the diet, a deficiency disease may occur.

What is the difference between fat-soluble and water soluble vitamins?
Fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K are found in the oily parts of food and are stored in the body. The water-soluble vitamins, which are present in the watery parts of food, include vitamin C and the B vitamins (B1, B2, niacin, B6, folic acid, B12, pantothenic acid and biotin). Excess amounts of water-soluble vitamins are eliminated in the body's urine.

Why should I take vitamins or dietary supplements?
You should take vitamins or dietary supplements for better health. There are millions of scientific articles, books and other publications about the health-promoting effects of nutrients that are present in dietary supplements. Many nutrients are essential, or indispensable, meaning we cannot live without ingesting them. Other nutrients, such as antioxidants, are not essential for life, but do have health-promoting properties. Dietary supplements simply keep people healthier and happier.
