Quality Assurance: The BioTRUST Difference
Most consumers of nutrition products are often surprised to learn that the FDA (the Food and Drug Administration) does not test or approve dietary supplements.
Just think about that for a second. This means that all the hundreds of thousands of fat burners, performance boosters, vitamins, minerals, herbs and protein powders you see online and on store shelves everywhere are self regulated by the industry. It’s difficult to know what you’re really getting.
You see, the FDA leaves it up to the individual supplement companies to formulate and test their own products. As you can imagine, many supplement companies cut all kinds of corners when it comes to quality control in order to boost their profit margins.
Buyer Beware: What Are You Swallowing?
Unfortunately, the following are 5 of the most common offenses in the dietary supplement industry when it comes to lack of quality control:
- Many companies do not hire qualified Registered Dieticians, PhDs or Medical Doctors to formulate their products based on the latest research. This results in products that lack safety standards and aren’t effective. In fact, many supplements are formulated by inexperienced “hacks” that simply mix up a batch of questionable ingredients without rhyme or reason.
- Many companies use untested, artificial and low-quality ingredients in amounts that are ineffective.
- Many products are not manufactured in a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certified facility under strict protocols.
- After the product is manufactured, many companies do not test the product to ensure its ingredients match what is listed on the label. Nor do they test the product to make sure it’s pure and free from contaminants. (Note: Independent testing shows that many supplements do not contain the ingredients listed on the label.)
- Finally, many companies ship out their products and let their customers be the guinea pigs when it comes to quality control.
At BioTrust Nutrition, we do the exact opposite of everything listed above. You see, not only are we developing scientifically-backed products to be used by our valued customers, but we're also creating these products to use ourselves. And we are recommending them wholeheartedly to our friends and family members. That is why it's critical that each of our products undergo a stringent and scientifically-based, 7-Stage Research and Testing Protocol before it can become “BioTrust Approved and Certified.” Here's how it works:
|Step 1.||World class formulators. At BioTrust we’ve compiled a team of some of the world’s most respected medical doctors, chemists, researchers, nutritionists and fitness experts to create the highest-quality brand on the planet. Each of our formulas goes through an extensive approval process by industry leaders with at least 15 to 20 years of experience in creating safe and highly effective nutrition products.|
|Step 2.||We only use HONEST, effective levels of scientifically-backed ingredients. We never add a “dusting” of an ingredient just for window dressing or marketing hype, a HUGE problem that is extremely common even with many of the most popular brands found at your local supplement store. Instead, we give you the honest amount of each ingredient that science shows will get you the best results.|
|Step 3.||BioTrust products are made with natural ingredients. We searched the globe for the highest quality and purest forms of every ingredient we include in our products. We use all-natural ingredients free from antibiotics, artificial sweeteners, colors and preservatives. For example, the protein in our BioTrust Nutrition Shakes comes from cows not treated with rBGH or rBST – artificial growth hormones that can pass into the milk, the protein…and ultimately you.|
|Step 4.||Ingredient testing. We only purchase raw ingredients that come with a certificate of analysis for potency and purity. And, we even do further microbiological testing during the manufacturing process. This means that every ingredient is guaranteed to be pure and potent before it becomes a BioTrust product.|
|Step 5.||GMP certified manufacturing. Our manufacturers strictly follow the National Nutritional Food Association’s (NNFA) Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). GMP is a third party certification program which includes inspection of manufacturing facilities to determine whether stringent performance standards are being met. These standards include specifications for staff training, cleanliness, equipment maintenance, and record keeping, and the highest quality control standards are in place.|
|Step 6.||3rd party quality assurance testing. After our products are manufactured, labeled and sealed, we take things a step further by enlisting 3rd party, independent labs to watch over even our GMP certified manufacturers. These labs further analyze our completed products to ensure and verify that the ingredients in our products are safe and in the appropriate amounts as listed on our labels.|
|Step 7.||Scientific Advisory Board review. At this point, the product is BioTrust Approved and Certified for purity and potency, but we don’t stop there. Before sending a new product to our customers, we first have members of our Scientific Advisory Board, (and us ourselves as the founders of the company), use the product, and if the product does not meet our strict guidelines for effectiveness and/or taste, we start all over again with the formulation process until it’s 100% perfected.|
As you can see, each BioTrust Nutrition product undergoes an exhaustive 7-Stage Research and Testing Protocol before it ever reaches your hands. Again, we believe in our products, we use our products, and every step of our manufacturing and development process was created to ensure that our products deliver only the highest quality, most effective formulations and ingredients to you and your body day in and day out—period. After all, that's what you deserve, and we're here to give it to you with each and every product we produce.
You see, no longer will you have to “wonder” or be forced to settle for inferior products, inferior ingredients, inferior results… the BioTrust difference was created for you, and it's available for you to experience, 100% guarantee-backed, today.
Experience the difference. Live the results.
To your ultimate body,
