The Poliquin line meets or in many cases exceeds the FDA cGMPs (Current Good Manufacturing Practices Guidelines for nutritional supplements). GMPs ensure identity, authenticity, potency and purity testing of raw materials and finished products, quarantine/release procedures, cleanliness of the facility, and more. Raw materials undergo rigorous testing for safety, purity, and efficacy before being sent to production. Any raw materials that do not fully meet these rigid standards are rejected. The Poliquin supplement line consists of formulations that are distributed to and used by physicians throughout the country. Yet another reason to feel good about using these high quality products. Our products are thoroughly tested on multiple levels for mold, yeast and bacteria counts, as well as heavy metals, aflatoxins, herbicide/pesticide/fungicide residue, multiple chemical solvent residues, and other contaminants. Our fish oil products are also tested for dioxins, and PCBs, and all of our oil products are tested for rancidity markers. Our products are manufactured in a clean and strictly controlled facility. The independent laboratories we use for third party testing are audited and verified to make sure that validated analytical methods and ethical lab practices for raw material and finished product testing are followed.
We are also committed to making sure that you get what you pay for. Unlike other companies, what it says on the label is exactly what you get! We understand how important it is to know what you are putting into your body, and that is why our product is tested for label claim potency. Poliquin products are delivered in different forms depending on the formulation. Not every product should be administered in capsules or tablets, so the best delivery form is chosen for optimal delivery. We also consider customer preference by offering a variety of forms and flavors. Our products also undergo analytical and microbiological tests as well as visual inspections to ensure validity of finished product expiration dates. Some companies simply estimate an expiration date, but Poliquin products are independently lab tested after manufacturing to ensure label claim.
The quality and safety of our products is given significant attention, in many cases beyond what the FDA requires. But in addition to safety, the purity, authenticity, and efficacy are also ensured through significant testing. Unlike many other companies, our formulas are based on science and extensive research. Our products contain only highly absorbable nutrients in therapeutic doses to ensure efficacy. Several of our formulas are also tested in human and/or animal clinical trials where the results are monitored closely by medical professionals. IMPORTANT: If you are pregnant or may become pregnant, are nursing, have existing medical conditions, or are taking medication, you should always check with your healthcare practitioner before starting any dietary supplement program. We recommend talking to your doctor before taking dietary supplements.
