At Bhakti Labs we partner with leading US innovators and producers, to source all our products. This allows us to shift our product line in accord with the latest scientific advances. Meaning we are able to put the best products available in your hands in the shortest time with the least expense. Keeping quality up and prices down.
One of our major partners operates their our own 100,000-square-foot, cGMP, FDA-audited manufacturing facility that is based in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and staffed by highly trained personnel who share our passion for efficacy. Because they control the entire production process — from formulation...to raw materials sourcing...to manufacturing...to laboratory testing of incoming materials and finished product... to bottling and labeling — we are free to be perfectionists.
Our manufacturing facility is strictly controlled by rigorous standards that meet cGMPs, and it routinely passes FDA and third-party audits. Extensive testing on every product we manufacture means you can trust the consistent purity, strength, identity, and composition of each and every Bhakti Labs Products formula.
It’s rare for a supplement company to handle all phases of production. But when your standards are as high as ours, you don’t want to entrust it to anyone else.
Following are just some of the steps our manufacturing partners takes to ensure the quality of our formulas:
They follow rigid SOPs (standard operating procedures) and MOPs (methods of procedure) throughout every stage of production, leaving nothing to chance.
They test all incoming raw materials in our state-of-the-art, in-house laboratory for identity (Is the material what it says it is?), purity (Does it contain any contaminants?), and composition (Does it match expected specifications?).
They mix all of our raw materials in dedicated blending rooms using a custom-made 5,000-liter mixer following strict protocols to ensure product consistency.
They manufacture every batch of product in dedicated tabletting and encapsulating rooms, which are thoroughly cleaned and dried after each batch is made to protect against cross-contamination. It can take up to eight hours just to clean one room!
They perform thorough post-cleaning inspections to ensure the highest state of sanitation has been achieved.
It is an understatement to say that there is wide variation in quality among dietary supplements.
How many times have you read a news report revealing that a shocking percentage of products tested contained only a fraction of the ingredient potency they claimed to have...or a newspaper story about a supplement that was contaminated
They test all finished products for identity (Does the formula contain the correct ingredients?), strength (Are the ingredients present in the potencies claimed?), and purity (Does the formula contain any contaminants?).
They subject every new formula to stability testing, which involves assaying ingredients to detect any degradation at 6-month intervals, thus ensuring the formula meets label claim at expiration.
All our nutritional supplement products are evidence-based. The most reliable evidence comes in the form of well- controlled human clinical trials, in populations demographically similar to our doctors’ patients, published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. This is the standard we are aiming for when we consider which ingredients to include in our formulas. However, we also honor the historical data of thousands of years of traditional use, as well as the direct observations of health care practitioners in clinical practice.
Raw Material Superiority
Equally important as which ingredients to include is which forms of ingredients to choose. After all, there can be tremendous variation in two ingredients both called CoQ10. We hold ourselves to a standard of raw material quality seldom seen in the supplement industry, and it starts with asking the right questions.
For example, when evaluating a raw material, most companies’ first question is: How much does it cost? We ask: Does the ingredient match the specifications used in clinical studies? Is it bioavailable? Has it been tested for safety? What is its country of origin? Was it manufactured in a controlled facility? Simply stated, we do not use inferior raw materials. Ever.
Of course, even if you have chosen evidence-based ingredients and provided them in a superior form, the formula will not work if the dosages are too small. That’s why Bhakti Labs Products always include the right therapeutic dosing of each ingredient, based on established research. This approach is what separates good supplements from great supplements — formulas that truly help your patients get better faster.
