manufacturing guidelines to ensure the utmost quality control:
Blending and Granulation All equipment used in the process

then processed using strict written guidelines for each product. Following
granulation and blending, the powder blends are stored in specially designed
containers to ensure freshness and to avoid any contamination. Once again
the Director of Operations ensures that all new blends are labeled appropriately.
Encapsulation and Compression Once a test unit has been processed, a sample is unit is issued to Quality Assurance to be compared to retained samples in order to ensure product integrity. Once the new unit has been approved by Quality Assurance, full line production may begin. Quality Assurance inspections are conducted using set protocols for the capsules. As with the blending and granulation process, the capsules are stored in specifically designed containers to ensure freshness and to avoid any contamination. The Director of Operations makes certain that all new capsules are labeled appropriately.
Liquids Liquid products are prepared following the same stringent protocols described above for blending, granulation, encapsulation and compression.
Packaging and Inspection Upon completion of processing, the final product is inspected again by the Quality Assurance staff. Broken tablets, over filled capsules and any other defective products are removed from the lot. Products released by the Quality Assurance staff are subsequently either packaged for bulk storage or bottled and labeled for consumer use (labels contain the appropriate information required by the Federal Drug Administration; batch numbers are logged). All finished products are properly labeled and closed with a tamper proof seal. The Quality Assurance unit also retains samples of raw materials for one year past the expiration date of the last product they are used in. The unit also retains samples of finished products for one year past the product expiration date. These samples are maintained under controlled conditions.
