Does Health Thru Nutrition Perform Product and Raw Material Testing?
Absolutely YES! Prior to manufacture, they test every single raw material active and inactive, to confirm the identity of each batch of raw material to be used in the finished product. This verified raw material is then lab tested for potency, microbiology, heavy metals, and residual solvents before any use in manufacturing.
Finally, all finished products are tested to ensure that the potency is at least 100% of label claim, along with a second round of heavy metal and microbiological testing to make sure that the product is safe for human consumption.
What is magnesium stearate? Why is it added to the supplement?
Magnesium stearate is used in the manufacturing of both supplements and medications as a lubricant or "flow agent" to prevent blockages in the machinery. Being used in the manufacturing process, small amounts make their way into the final product. Magnesium stearate is found in nature and in our diet, (meat and chocolate are particularly rich sources). Bottom line, the small amount that you will actually consume from supplements or medications is considered negligible.
What is silicon dioxide? Why is it added to the supplement?
Silicon Dioxide is used in the manufacturing process to prevent the various powdered ingredients destined for the supplement from sticking together and to ensure an even distribution of ingredients in the final product. As with many food additives, consumers often have concerns about finding silicon dioxide on product labels. However, numerous studies have found no health risks associated with silicon dioxide and the actual amount in each supplement is considered negligible.
What is hypromellose? Why is it added to the supplement?
Hypromellose, is a derivative of cellulose, (the main constituent of plant cell walls), used as eye drops for artificial tears and in supplements as an excipient. Hypromellose is a vegetarian alternative to gelatin.
