If your vitamins have been sourced and manufactured in China, they are without a doubt cheaper than the US-made vitamins, why is this? That being said, what is the true cost of these vitamins from China? How is it that Chinese manufactures can source their ingredients, pay their workers, cover all the production costs, ship the finished product on a boat that takes six weeks to get to our shores and then price them, on average, 25% below the USA made supplements? Why would you spend $28 for a product, when you could buy it for $12?
Efficacy is the answer. Efficacy is the power to produce the desired effect or intended result. You can buy the cheapest vitamins on the market, but if they do not work, the money is wasted, your health may be at risk and you can most definitely suffer from taking these Chinese made vitamins. This is not a scare tactic, simply information as to why we at we would never buy any ingredients from China to make our vitamins.
FACT: Over half of all American adults are taking vitamins and supplements. Most if not all are not aware they are ingesting vitamins made in China or made using ingredients derived from China.
FACT: The top vitamin exporting province, Zhejiang, has an alarming level of soil pollution from heavy metals.
FACT: China’s Irrigation water is a complete nightmare: Over half of the country’s major water bodies are polluted, as are 86 percent of city water bodies. Pollution is largely caused by the country’s numerous factories, which very rarely have equipment for treating this pollution. Seventy to 80 percent of the country’s industrial waste is directly emitted into rivers each and every day.
While supplements are not regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration/Vitamins), Vitamins manufactured in the USA must comply with FDA – GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) to receive their validating stamp that appears on the label. FDA representatives make unannounced visits to manufacturing plants such as ours, to tour facilities, inspect for cleanliness standards, label verification, and source ingredient documentation.
