Who May Order From Pure Encapsulations?
Only licensed healthcare professionals may order from Pure Encapsulations. We strongly believe that nutritional supplements should be taken under the guidance of a physician or health professional. The strongest link between our high-potency supplements and consumers is the presence and guidance of a qualified health professional.
Pure Encapsulations was founded to create the highest quality hypoallergenic supplements. Since 1991, we have set the standards for providing the highest quality nutritional products available, and have established an unprecedented Quality Control program. Today, our supplements are the choice of over 36,000 health professionals in the U.S. and Europe.
We have built our business by producing the finest supplements possible. Ingredient quality, manufacturing excellence and quality control are our most important priorities. We differentiate ourselves by holding our suppliers to the highest standards and by following strict near-pharmaceutical manufacturing procedures. An industry first, we voluntarily submit all of our encapsulated products to third party laboratories for HPLC validation and provide our customers with the actual documentation in the form of a CD. Pure Encapsulations remains unmatched in pioneering a rigorous, validated quality control program.
Our ingredients are selected solely on the basis of quality and purity and are provided in their most potent and bioavailable forms. We purchase premium raw materials from Japan, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, France, and of course the U.S. Manufacturers of ingredients must pass rigorous pharmaceutical grade analytical tests to qualify as Pure Encapsulations suppliers.
Supplements for Sensitive People
Pure Encapsulations supplements are hypoallergenic. There are absolutely no hidden fillers or coatings, binders, shellacs, artificial colors, fragrance or excipients in our products that would disrupt or diminish the bioavailability of any of our ingredients. Furthermore, our products are free of wheat, yeast, gluten, corn, sugar, starch, preservatives or hydrogenated oils.
Manufacturing and Quality Control Excellence
We manufacture our supplements in our own state-of-the-art facility in Sudbury, Massachusetts. The manufacturing protocol at Pure Encapsulations is set forth in standard operating procedures (SOP's) developed in conjunction with ISSI Scientific, Highland Park, NJ, a GMP and GLP consultant serving pharmaceutical companies. Every step of Pure Encapsulations SOP's exceed the standards set forth in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia and the NNFA GMP's. (We currently sell over 20% of our production as prescription items in Europe).
Our dedication to cleanliness is obvious from the moment our plant is entered. A large staff is dedicated full-time to the task of ensuring that our plant meets the highest standards.
The Quality Control/Assurance department is separate and distinct from the Production Department, and has full authority to reject ingredients, reject finished product and stop production, without the approval of other company management. Pure Encapsulations QC/QA department is headed by a Master of Science in Biology and Chemistry. The QC/QA team consists of 5 full-time employees including 4 full-time inspectors in production.
All ingredients are quarantined upon receipt, pending independent certification of analysis, usually by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) (unless another method is superior).
All ingredients are bar coded and assigned a unique tracking number. Production batch records are QC'd by three senior managers prior to blending, and specialized software programs provide a failsafe mechanism to prevent misidentification of ingredients.
All production is performed in sealed humidity- and dust-controlled individual rooms, supplied with Millipore filtered compressed air. All production rooms are serviced by particulate remediation systems. Production rooms are sanitized prior to the commencement of every capsule filling run.
Encapsulation equipment is dismantled and sanitized prior to the commencement of every capsule filling run. This includes scales, mills, blenders, powder fillers, encapsulating machines, capsule counters and balances.
Our high tech equipment performs functions including capsule weight checking, deformed capsule rejection and de-dusting.
Full Label Disclosure
In 1991, we pioneered the practice of providing complete ingredient disclosure (Accepted industry practice was to hide or omit allergenic fillers or exipients). Pure Encapsulations supplement labels list all ingredients. Additionally, if an herbal ingredient is listed, our label details the strength of the standardized extract.
