Passion for Quality
We take quality assurance and quality control extremely seriously in everything we do at OptiVega® because you deserve and expect it. Quality is right at the top of our core values. Our quality program entails (a) creating quality product formulations, (b) using only the best ingredients, (c) employing state-of-the art manufacturing facilities and processes, and (d) performing extensive testing.
There is definitely an art in formulating complex multivitamin supplements using the best science and natural principles, and very few companies truly try to work out all the details to get it right. For example, the formulation of OptiVega® Multivitamin & Mineral considers:
- what is already provided by plant-based diets and what’s not,
- what the safest and most effective optimum micronutrient intakes are,
- what the gaps are to achieve optimum micronutrient balance,
- short- and long-term health benefits,
- human physiology under the most natural conditions,
- how to maximize nutrient bioavailability,
- how to avoid nutrient interactions,
- how to improve nutrient tolerance and avoiding allergens,
- the latest scientific consensus and the willingness to update the formulation as new science emerges.
In other words, you can be assured that all the components of the final formulation work together like musicians in a world-class philharmonic orchestra. And that is key in making the product work sing for you.
There are tens of thousands of ingredient options available in today’s raw ingredient market, and our stringent ingredient qualification process makes sure you only see ingredients in our products that are:
- documented and verified vegan
- natural or completely nature-identical
- supported by extensive clinical research
- unquestionably safe
- free of common allergens
- analyzed and passed for potency, purity and identity (every batch)
- manufactured under FDA Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs)
- in compliance with all US and international standards (USP, FCC, EP, etc.)
On average, we reject 9 out of 10 raw ingredient choices because they don’t meet one or more of the above criteria. In other words, you can be assured that every ingredient is a stellar performer so you get all of its health benefits.
OptiVega® products are manufactured in a brand new, US-based, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that adheres to strict FDA Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs). CGMPs are regulations enforced by the FDA that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities to safeguard the identity, strength, quality, and purity of dietary supplements. In addition, our manufacturing facility is inspected, certified and registered by NSF®. There are numerous redundant controls, tests and safeguards that ensure that each and every batch of product comes to life exactly as intended and within tightly set specifications.
There are hundreds of quality tests for every single batch of OptiVega® product. Every single raw ingredient we use is tested extensively for identity, potency, purity and microbiological cleanliness. In fact, effective automated controls prevent a raw material from being used unless it has passed all the quality tests. After manufacturing, the finished product undergoes similar extensive testing. In addition, we use independent, accredited third party analytical testing laboratories to verify that everything that’s on the label is indeed in the bottle.
