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. Tests include organoleptic evaluation (human senses such as sight, taste, smell), physical testing of tablets and capsules, chemical identity of ingredients, potency and contamination testing by the company's in-house state-of-the-art analytical testing lab, as well as microbiological testing by NOW Foods' in-house rapid analysis microbiological lab.

    Now Foods L-Carnosine 500 mg - 100 Vegetarian Capsules

    Now Foods L-Carnosine is classified as a dipeptide, which is a combination of two amino acids, in this case alanine and histidine. Now Foods L-Carnosine naturally occurs in high concentrations in skeletal muscle tissue, and therefore may support muscle vitality. Now Foods L-Carnosine is also an antioxidant that stabilizes cellular membranes, protecting them from damage by free radicals. Because Now Foods L-Carnosine is only found in vertebrates, it is especially important for persons who do not consume beef, pork or chicken.

    • Supports Muscle Vitality
    • Cell Membrane Protection
    • Vegetarian Formula
    As a natural health consumer, I have been led to associate anything synthetic with chemical, and chemicals with unnatural drugs that cause side effects, since they are foreign to the body. Since Carnosine and Zinc Carnosine are partially synthesized, are these safe?
    There is a distinction between the natural and synthetic forms. We believe that 'natural is better' and will always prefer the natural form. However, the natural form can be extracted or synthesized, with either method producing identical molecules of the natural substance. The synthesized form is called "nature-identical" if it has the exact same molecular and chemical structure of the substance found in nature. Some companies use the term "bio-identical" as equivalent to "nature-identical".Often the synthesis of nutrients in laboratories is obtained by growing benign bacterial cultures that produce nature-identical nutrients by natural fermentation. Other nutrients are very simple molecules that can be obtained utilizing basic chemical reactions, such as reacting specific starches with acids. Many, if not most, nutrients are synthesized or partially synthesized just like Zinc Carnosine, and are considered just as safe: Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Mineral Citrates, Amino acids, B-vitamins, etc. The safety and efficacy of nature-identical nutrients have been proven over many years. These are the exact same forms as would be produced by isolating specific nutrients from food or other natural sources. Synthesized nature-identical nutrients often are of higher purity and are more cost-effective than is possible when obtaining isolated nutrients from natural material sources.
