Company has met stricter pharmaceutical standards for the last 10 years
GREEN BAY, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Integrative Therapeutics, Inc. (ITI), a leading developer and marketer of dietary supplements to medical professionals and their patients, applauds the Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) that were passed by the FDA this week. ITI has been operating its manufacturing facility to even stricter Drug GMP principles for nearly 10 years. As both an FDA registered drug establishment and an organically certified processor, ITI sets the gold standard for dietary supplement quality in the industry.
The new CGMPs require industry-wide manufacturing and quality assurance controls, which will ensure dietary supplement product purity, identity and strength of composition. ITI already has systems in place that surpass these regulations. For example the new rules require:
Product ingredient testing and a qualified Quality Control Unit – ITI has a $1M+ onsite lab, performs 38,000 product safety tests per year, and has 20 Quality professionals on staff.
Written procedures (SOPs), raw material/product specifications and Master Manufacturing Records – ITI has kept these records for the last decade.
Testing of a subset of finished product batches – ITI tests EVERY lot of raw material and finished product, then follows up with stability testing to ensure shelf life.
“We believe the most expensive supplement you can take is the one that does not work.” said Mike Devereux, COO and VP of Sales at ITI. “Having these new standards in place will cause all manufacturers to confirm their products meet these stricter quality control requirements.”
Dr. Corey Resnick, N.D., a member of the ITI Scientific Advisory Board commented, “I’ve always been confident in ITI formulas and secure in the knowledge that their products are manufactured under rigorous FDA standards for drug manufacturing.”
In the future, ITI will continue in its role as a quality leader for the industry and not just meet, but exceed federal dietary supplement regulations.
ITI offers a complete solution set of the highest quality products, educational materials, services, and protocols exclusively for healthcare practitioners. For more information go to www.integrativeinc.com or call 800-931-1709.
