Nutraceutical Companies & Manufacturers
Nutraceutical manufacturers create dietary supplements to help people self-medicate and prevent medical conditions and diseases with herbs and other ingredients. Nutraceutical companies provide safe, affordable alternatives to prescription drugs. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a dietary supplement as “a product (other than tobacco) intended to supplement the diet that bears or contains one or more of the following dietary ingredients: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs or other botanicals; a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract or combination of the ingredients listed above.”
Nutraceutical, one of the largest nutritional supplement manufacturers in the world, was formed in 1993. Its portfolio contains more than 65 brands and 7,500 products, which include many well-recognized brands. The company uses science and innovation, responsible sourcing and sustainable labs to ensure the safety, reliability and integrity of their “Family of Products.”
Some of their products include: Life-Flo, allOne, KAL, Solray, NaturalCare, VitaLogic and more. Their collections include Healthy, Beautiful, Innovative, Nature’s Cures, Active, Healthy Market, Beehive, Nutra Book and Pet Store. It is a publicly traded company on NASDAQ and includes annual reports, financial reports and SEC filings on its website, which increases its credibility among customers, retailers, stockholders, internal audiences and more.
The rise of nootropics and other supplements have flooded the market with new products. While many of them are legitimate and do what they say they will do, there are some companies that have faced lawsuits and negative commentary online. What was once a promise of a new miracle nootropic ends up being an empty shelf.
In one such case, law firms representing customers have filed lawsuits contesting that many of the herbal supplements on shelves did not contain the health ingredients listed on the bottles’ labels. According to the lawsuit, “We believe these major retailers have completely abandoned their responsibility to consumers who trust that their products contain what’s listed on the label—not phony pills full of anything but,” said Steve Berman, managing partner at Hagens Berman and attorney representing the class of purchasers. “Millions of consumers across the nation have been duped by GNC, Target, Walmart and Walgreens and have spent years purchasing fake and fraudulent products.”
When searching for a supplement to fulfill your needs, do your research and consult an expert if you have questions about a supplement’s content or a brand’s reputation.
