Liquid Vitamins and Minerals. Of course, it goes without saying that all of our formulas are 100% GMP certified. GMP stands for good manufacturing practices given to you by the FDA if your products are manufactured in 100% accordance with their standards and their rules. This means that not only the manufacturing facilities that we use must be fully GMP certified but each raw material must also be GMP certified and come from a certified raw material supplier. While this is a benefit for the consumer, it is often a nightmare for us, because some of our formulas are very complicated and if we cannot get a GMP certified raw material or nutrient we have to hold the formula and cannot make it. This often causes backordered delays for our liquid vitamins and minerals.
This is unfortunate but there is an up and a downside to everything in life. The upside is that you’re getting the finest quality product possible as the regulations for dietary supplements are almost stricter than for pharmaceuticals. The downside of course is obvious, we often go on backorder and cannot supply the products on a demand basis. For this reason we strongly suggest that if you have a formula that you rely on that is doing its job for you, that is making you feel better, please order your Liquid Vitamins and Minerals ahead.
Try to always have at least a 30 day supply in advance. Check back soon for more information on the best women’s vitamins and don’t forget to check out The Institute of Nutritional Science for the latest information on health, wellness, and nutrition.
