Why should you insist on pharmaceutical grade supplements?
That's simple. Because you want safe and effective supplements that improve your health!
There are several criteria that must be met to be considered pharmaceutical grade. Only pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements like PharmaNutrients meet all of these criteria to deliver optimal health benefits.
WHAT IS PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE
The term pharmaceutical grade was originally taken from the standard of certification of the facilities in which pharmaceutical grade supplements were made. PharmaNutrients’ supplements are made in facilities registered with the FDA, by companies certified to produce prescription drugs. PharmaNutrients full range of Omega-3 products are manufactured under “Good Manufacturing Practice” or GMP regulations which is part of a quality system covering the manufacture and testing of active pharmaceutical ingredients, diagnostics, foods, pharmaceutical products, and medical devices. GMPs are guidelines that outline the aspects of production and testing that can impact the quality of a product.
PURITY & CONCENTRATION
Pharmaceutical grade also refers to the ingredients in the supplement. Pharmaceutical grade vitamins meet the highest standards for purity and concentration. PharmaNutrients’ supplements have been ultra-purified to remove toxins and contaminants, and are concentrated to prescription strength. PharmaNutrients omega-3’s surpass all US and EU standards for quality.
Our products are highly concentrated and incomparable to other fish oil: Our fish oil is refined to an 85% concentration of omega-3s, making our oil the most potent source of these healthy, essential fats required for human health. Finally, natural antioxidants are added. Our fish oil is held in an oxygen-free environment during the entire process. Our fish oil is then packaged and sealed immediately, ensuring its freshness and potency. Our product is guaranteed to be top-quality, delivering all the benefits of omega-3 in an effective, convenient capsule.
Our principal supplier can certify when and where the fish is caught. The entire batch is processed within 48 hours of the catch. The processing plant is built specifically for fish oil production, and it is thoroughly sanitized and fully automated with a computerized control center. PharmaNutrients omega-3 fish oil comes only from sardines and anchovies caught during the peak of their season off the Pacific coast in the very cold waters. The approved fishery and facility operates only 4 weeks per year in two 2-week seasons, the only period when the ships are allowed to catch sardines and anchovies. These fish are plentiful in supply, not endangered, and perhaps most important, not critical to the aquatic food chain. They are also among the highest in natural EPA and DHA Omega-3’s found anywhere in nature.
Our standards are unbeatable: PharmaNutrients fish oil is produced according to the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) standards – as is everything in the plant. The fish oil goes through a rigorous, natural purification process. The oil is chilled to remove saturated fats, and then several filtering steps are implemented. Oxidized particles and other contaminants are removed by chromatography. The oil is concentrated through micro-distillation. Approximately 60% of our output of oil is converted into biodiesel fuel because there is an unavoidable portion of inferior fish oil that does not meet our quality specifications. Only the top 40% of the oil collected is even used as the raw material for making our fish oil.
And finally, pharmaceutical grade supplements have a high bioavailability. This means that when you take a pharmaceutical grade product like PharmaNutrients, your body absorbs an optimal amount of nutrients. Better nutrient absorption means greater health benefits in fewer capsules
