Nutriex prides itself on top quality – from each and every raw material to the final packaged product. Many ingredients we select (natural vitamin E, vitamin K2, chelated minerals, concentrated extracts – to name a few) are significantly more expensive than their counterparts, but provide health benefits unparalleled by the less costly versions. We develop our products based on the quality we want for our personal use rather than choosing inexpensive ingredients for the purpose of maximizing profits.

We test the ingredients in our products at multiple steps throughout the manufacturing process. First, every ingredient in every product is analyzed using USP (United States Pharmacopeia) methods and must pass these tests before it is included. We evaluate not only the identity of the product, but also its concentration and purity. We then manufacture under the guidance of strict manufacturing codes (21 CFR Part 111) and maintain good manufacturing practices that meet and in many cases exceed the requirements of the FDA. Finally, we perform finished product testing under the same criteria to ensure that our end products meet the highest quality standards. All products pass stringent microbial testing criteria for mold, yeast, and bacteria such as salmonella and e coli before they are available for purchase.

In creating our products, we looked at the research that had been done on each antioxidant (some is primarily in animals, some on cells, and some in human studies), and determined a quantity that would be enough to provide at least some benefit (and not just prevent a disease, e.g., vitamin C and scurvy). We looked carefully at the concentration of our ingredients and evaluated whether we’d be better off getting the benefit from food instead. For example, we specifically avoided adding a broccoli extract because it was impossible to add enough for a benefit without adding multiple capsules a day. On the other hand, we were able to add less Vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid than is found in some stand-alone products because they work together to “regenerate” each other. Chemically, they go through what’s called a redox reaction in which Vitamin C that has eliminated a free radical reacts with alpha lipoic acid and is “restored” and able to eliminate another free radical. Vitamin C does the same for alpha lipoic acid. Many of the antioxidants work together in this way, almost like a team of football players. Without a blend of good receivers, defensemen, running backs, etc., the team is not nearly as successful as if all players possessed the same talent. Combining Nutriex Health, Sport, or Basic with a well-rounded diet that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables is the best approach.

Our Sport, Health, and Basic products contain a broad range of antioxidants. Vitamins A, C, and E are all antioxidants, as is the mineral selenium. Our products also contain many plant-based antioxidants (beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, ginger, green tea extract, lemon bioflavonoids, quercetin, rutin, and turmeric) as well as other powerful antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid and coenzyme Q10. Lycopene is an antioxidant included in Health and Sport, but not in Basic.
