NOW Foods supplements are produced in North America, using ingredients from all over the world. The company has two main facilities for the production and distribution of supplements and foods, located in Bloomingdale, Illinois and Sparks, Nevada. NOW Foods has a 263,000 square foot natural product manufacturing facility in Bloomingdale, Illinois, which is considered one of the most advanced in the industry. In order to meet local community demand and avoid having to ship products from the Midwest, NOW Foods planned a local manufacturing plant on the West Coast.
The company controls the manufacturing process from start to finish and operates a 24-hour manufacturing facility in Bloomingdale, where good manufacturing practices (cGMP) are employed at every step. NOW Foods strives to create supplements that are as close to nature as possible. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there is a high demand for immune-support supplements, with some products being requested ten times or more. This has caused supply chain issues for NOW Foods.
To ensure that their products meet their high standards, they have many laboratories and do more than 16,000 tests a month. NOW sports nutrition supplements are certified by Informed-Sport, the world's leading anti-doping organization. Several tests are carried out throughout the production process and the final product to ensure that customers receive a safe and effective supplement they can trust. A number of processes and procedures have been established to ensure the quality and safety of all supplements.
Health supplements are becoming increasingly popular and are an excellent addition to many health and wellness regimens. NOW's line of vitamins and supplements consists of a range of vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients essential for optimal health. The company is committed to providing the best healthy foods and nutritional supplements at affordable prices. Once the ingredients pass the initial tests, they are sent to production to be used in the production of various supplements.
NOW has also provided this information to other supplement brands, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and trade associations. One example is PureControl Supplements, which mislabeled its product by stating that 1500 mg of SAM-e versus “500 mg” were adenosylate-methionine disulfate tosylate in just two capsules, which is mathematically impossible. The NOW Foods mushroom supplement comes in the form of “Rei-Shi” capsules, which are a mixture of reishi and shiitake extract.
