Trust, but Verify!
Youngevity embraces 2 voluntary 3rd party certification programs
An old Russian proverb states “Доверяй, но проверяй” (Trust, but confirm.) President Ronald Reagan quoted this maxim repeatedly throughout negotiations of the IMF nuclear arms treaty in the 1980’s.
Today, provided the surging appeal of nutritional supplements, and the hundreds of companies that have actually appeared to satisfy the demand, confirmation of product quality is essential. Natural items do not receive the very same regulation as prescription or non-prescription drugs, and this fact raises concerns in the minds of lots of customers. Youngevity has actually always been a leader in item purity, but current advancements demonstrate the business’s confidence when it comes to item honesty.
Youngevity is now a voluntary individual in strenuous independent item evaluation involving 2 extremely appreciated screening organizations– NSF International and IFOS. The objective of these organizations is to secure both the consumer and the industry by developing strict standards for purity and quality, and screening and licensing products at different points throughout the supply chain. They check for harmful pollutants and confirm that the supplements consist of the ingredients noted on the label and absolutely nothing else.
Let’s be clear, no person is requiring Youngevity to take part in this accreditation program. It is just a result of the business’s dedication to quality, and it’s ongoing dedication to reconstruct the health of people worldwide.
Let’s look at each screening entity in more information:
Founded in 1944 as the National Sanitation Foundation, this company has actually expanded into lots of categories of customer protection and into global markets. Their engineers, microbiologists, toxicologists, chemists, and public health experts test and accredit products in cutting edge labs.
The NSF certification mark on a product suggests that the item abides by all standard requirements. You will certainly begin seeing it on the full line of Beyond Tangy Tangerine items and other keystone items. The certification mark provides:
Knowledge that an unbiased testimonial versus developed requirements or guidelines has been performed
Evidence that item labeling and claims have actually been objectively examined by a trusted third party
A method to separate Youngevity products from rivals’ items and get benefit in the market
Proof of Youngevity’s company-wide commitment to quality, compliance and security
Backing by a group of specialists dedicated to public health and safety operating in more than 150 countries around the globe
Every aspect of an item’s advancement is thoroughly evaluated prior to it can earn NSF accreditation. NSF does not simply examine test information sent by makers or examine simply a single sample of a product and provide it their okay. They conduct item screening in recognized laboratories to confirm that the real contents of the supplement item match those printed on the label. And accreditation is not a one-time event, but involves routine on-site assessments of manufacturing facilities and routine re-testing of products to guarantee that they remain to fulfill the exact same high requirements needed to maintain certification in time. Yearly audits ensure compliance versus the toughest testing standard out there today.
The International Fish Oil Standards Program is the only 3rd party screening and accreditation program for fish oils. IFOS accreditation has actually been given for EFA Plus, S.M.A.R.T., and FX items.
IFOS sets the world’s greatest standards for purity, potency, and freshness. As a voluntary, subscription-based service offered to the entire fish oil supply chain, IFOS tests products by lot, making use of direct evaluation, for active ingredient content, pollutants, and freshness.
Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), accountable for the numerous health advantages related to fish oil items. Unfortunately, not all items on the market consist of the amount of active ingredients stated on the item label. As a consumer, you have to be guaranteed that the product you are paying for contains adequate levels of its most important elements. IFOS accreditation provides that guarantee.
Another element to think about when evaluating a fish oil item is possible contamination. Ecological contaminants and dangerous chemicals can get in the ecosystem as an outcome of industrial activity. These compounds bio-accumulate in the fatty tissues of fish, indicating that oil derived from these tissues may consist of excess concentrations of pollutants. Contaminants commonly spotted in fish oil samples include heavy metals (e.g., mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium) PCBs, dioxins, furans and dioxin-like PCBs. Clinical research study recommends that contaminants from edible aquatic sources can have negative health impacts, numerous which outweigh the helpful health impacts of omega-3 intake. IFOS is the only program that tests fish oil products by batch/lot number to make sure that they do not contain harmful levels of pollutants. In response to enhanced consumer questions about fish oil and radiation, all fish oil samples submitted for IFOS screening have radiation analysis information.
Also a concern is shelf life and stability. Components that are vulnerable to deterioration or spoiling, such as fish oil, can rapidly turn rancid if the item was not created sufficiently, not managed appropriately during manufacturing, or kept in inappropriate conditions (e.g., excessive temperature level or humidity). Again, IFOS is the only program that checks fish oil products by batch/lot number to ensure that they are stable and fresh for usage.
Exactly what if you’ve learned to trust Youngevity’s items through the most important verification process of all– your individual results! Why validate?
Remember that important to Doctor Wallach’s objective is the have to get the word out of 90 essential nutrients to the whole world. Let’s face it; it’s a progressively hesitant world! The clinical confirmation and validation enabled through independent, 3rd celebration screening will certainly lead the way for a quicker realization of our objective. And as the intricacy and footprint of the Youngevity operation expands to meet world need, it’s vital to confirm that nothing is ever jeopardized in ANY quarter. It’s an insurance plan in the meantime and the future. We are lucky to have corporate leadership that is willing to invest, in numerous ways, to achieve the greatest standards of quality.
