At NFH, we lead the natural health product industry by exceeding the regulatory requirements of Health Canada, the FDA, and other qualification programs. Our quality assurance values surrounding identity, potency, purity, efficacy, and safety guarantee the highest standards of excellence in each product lot number manufactured at NFH.
Regulated by Health Canada, all NFH products have a product licence in the form of an eight-digit Natural Product Number (NPN).
This means that each product has been assessed by Health Canada with respect to medicinal ingredients, source, dose, potency, non-medicinal ingredients, and recommended use and that Health Canada has decided that it is safe, effective, and of high quality.
The NPN on NFH products guarantees that the product has been reviewed and approved by Health Canada – a truly unique initiative offered in Canada.
We surpass the regulations of Health Canada and the FDA by which we validate every single raw material lot that enters our facility prior to manufacturing – we do not skip lot test.
We do not rely on supplier Certificate of Analysis. Rather, all dietary ingredient raw materials that enter our manufacturing facility, regardless of country origin, are quarantined and subject to the same rigorous third-party testing.
We have an open book policy, meaning Certificate of Analysis for all raw materials and finished product lot numbers are available to licensed healthcare professionals upon request.
We utilize non-GMO vegetarian capsules instead of tablets for our evidence-based products. Encapsulation of our ingredients increases the purity of our formulation by reducing the overuse of excipients including binders, lubricants, coatings, etc. needed for manufacturing tablets.
In addition, encapsulation increases dissolution, absorption, and bioavailability of the ingredients provided by our formulations for enhanced efficacy. Our non-GMO capsules and softgels are designed to dissolve in the stomach, whereas, our enteric-coated capsules used namely for probiotics must dissolve in the intestinal tract.
Third-party laboratory analysis includes disintegration testing that mimics the human digestive system to ensure all products dissolve in their specific gastrointestinal location at the right time.
Our products contain only raw materials of the highest quality and purity in their optimal nutrient form for enhanced efficacy.
Therefore, each product contains no preservatives, artificial flavour or colour, sugar, dairy, starch, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, yeast, or eggs. This reduces side effects, allergies, and sensitivities to our evidence-based nutraceuticals.
Our products are formulated under the guidance of our internationally-renowned Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) and Medical Consultancy Group (MCG).
Our team of scientists along with the scientist in the third-party laboratories ensure that each raw material used in our product formulations is of the highest quality and purity for optimal efficacy and safety.
Our highly qualified personnel specialize in analytical chemistry, food science & technology, biochemistry, physiology and biology, human nutrition & dietetics, chemical engineering, applied statistics, and more.
