Why we STRONGLY suggest Guido’s Own line of vitamins and supplements:
Before we put our Guido’s Fresh Marketplace line of dietary supplements on store shelves, we searched for a supplier that could meet our high standards. Our dietary supplement manufacturer has been in business since 1924. Their 80-plus years of manufacturing experience results in consistent, safe, natural products. What’s more, their facility is certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI), a leader in organic certification. Below are just a few reasons why we selected them to be our manufacturer:
The average consumer may not realize different levels of FDA registration are required for laboratories producing both nutritional supplements and pharmaceutical drugs. The FDA routinely audits our manufacturer’s standards as a pharmaceutical company; thus our supplements are made according to these rigorous standards.
How did our supplier obtain such a high rating? They use state-of-the-art technology combined with raw materials that are carefully screened for quality and uniformity. All their manufacturing procedures and standards for cleanliness are documented and periodically audited by the FDA.
If your goal is to buy the least expensive vitamins you can find, chances are the store you’re buying them from has the same goal. Their suppliers satisfy that goal by using the cheapest raw materials available. If you had the opportunity to examine those raw materials closely, you might find inconsistent physical characteristics. Of course, these can be hidden cosmetically. There’s no way the customer or the store that sells them would recognize that inferior supplements are made from inferior materials, unless the manufacturer told you. You can count on our products to have the best raw materials for each formula.
To supply you with the best product, our manufacturer routinely inspects materials and supplements for identity and potency, beyond the number of times required by the FDA. Raw materials are assayed upon arrival at the manufacturer, during the manufacturing process, and again before the supplements are shipped.
Our confidence in our own nutritional supplements is reflected in the clarity and completeness of our labeling. Our full disclosure labels list the details of each product’s contents. If you have special dietary needs regarding certain ingredients, we disclose information about sugar, starch, artificial flavors and colors as well as preservatives and potential allergens. We simply don’t want artificial preservatives, flavors or colors in our quality vitamins.
Our manufacturer also has its own full-scale Quality Control department. Here, raw materials and end products undergo various tests to ensure potency, purity and disintegration. A complete microbiological testing laboratory is used to test not only for contaminating bacteria like Salmonella and E. coli, but also for potency of certain B vitamins, such as folic acid, biotin, and B-12.
Another measure of quality: We always list the Best By date on the bottom of each bottle, thus guaranteeing the potency, purity and freshness of our products!
We put forth only dietary supplements with science behind the formulations. Our manufacturer has a team of scientific professionals (including chemists, microbiologists, and Registered Dietitians) and product development specialists ensuring scientifically sound formulas.
Finally, our manufacturer is committed to environmental sustainability. They ship our supplements in at least 65% recycled cartons filled with 100% biodegradable and recyclable packing peanuts. The fully recycled amber glass bottles require 40% less energy to produce than new bottles. Their promotional materials also utilize 100% post-consumer fibers. Our supplier’s combined efforts to be a “green” company have resulted in an annual conservation or elimination of:
- Water:28,000 gallons
- Trees: 68-124
- Electricity: 16,000 KWh
- Air pollutants: 240 pounds
We hope you’ll choose our Guido’s Own supplements. When searching for natural, premium dietary supplements to promote overall wellness and global sustainability look no further than Guido’s Fresh Marketplace.
