We're so glad you're here. Our mission is simple: to bring wellness to our customers, our partners, and our communities. Here's a bit on how we work and what we believe — and why you can trust us.
We've been around since 1992, supplying supplements to local ethnic communities around the Los Angeles suburbs. In 2016, we redeveloped and expanded our product line to serve a wider audience — you!
But why should you trust us? We've been doing this for over a decade now, making supplements for some of the world's most premium and trustworthy brands.
We're fully registered with the FDA and also NSF GMP certified, which means that we are also regularly audited by third parties to make sure our facility stays spotlessly clean and adheres to all regulations.
We have our own microbiology lab and equipment. We test obsessively to make sure that raw ingredients contain what they are supposed to and aren't contaminated with bacteria. We also test all the batches of finished goods too. (For all you science nerds out there, we're specifically talking gas chromatography and HPLC assays, among others.)
For any specialized tests, like heavy metals, we happily outsource testing to third party labs. It's an expense that we never skimp on.
If you want to see any test results, just ask us! We're working on a nifty feature on our site where you can enter the batch number on the bottom of your bottle and it'll give you the reports directly.
We've worked with some of our supplier partners for as long as we've been around. Many of them are also family-owned, and we all share the same commitment to providing health and wellness to people. Human consumption and industrialization has an unavoidable effect on the environment, but we do our best to ensure that our impact is minimal.
Pharma Marine, a three-generation family fish oil supplier based in Norway, is one of our oldest and most innovative partners. They invented a certified sustainable way of extracting omega-3 fish oils from cod fish trimmings, which are a by product of food production. We're so proud to use their MSC-certified omega-3 fish oils!
Another multi-generational family-owned partner, Vitusa Products, produces glycerin with palm oil. They source from certified manufacturers of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) to ensure responsible long-term environmental practices.
You can recycle all of our bottles, which are made with PET with aluminum caps. Our labels are FSC certified, made with 100% renewable energy and 100% post consumer waste. Our shipping boxes are FSC and SFI certified, made of 60% to 95% post-consumer waste, and 100% recyclable.
We'll be the first to say it — our products are not a substitute for a eating well, staying active and seeing your doctor. We believe in supplements as nutritional insurance of sorts; they can help cover gaps in your diet or lifestyle, such as working a desk job that doesn't provide time for natural vitamin D synthesis in the sun.
We believe in 'just enough', so you won't find any 100-ingredient products or 10,000% RDA formulations here. And definitely no sketchy grey-area ingredients that claim to solve all of your problems. We're just here to provide a little extra.
Everything, even sugary and fatty treats, in moderation. Yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and self care. Showing gratitude, even as we continue to work on ourselves. Saying no to extreme diets, deprivation and self punishment. For us, that's true wellness.
