Pharmaceutical Testing of Botanicals
This helps analyze trace elements, including potentially harmful heavy metals present in herbs.
High Performance Liquid Chromotography
High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC): HPLC separates, identifies, and quantifies each component in a mixture, guaranteeing that the herbs possess the correct active ingredients.
Mass Spectrometry: This advanced technique identifies compounds by providing a molecular fingerprint for every herb to ensure its purity and quality.
Mold Toxin Tested
It is vital to confirm that herbs are not contaminated with mold toxins that could lead to adverse health effects.
Aerobic Microbial Tested
This type of testing spots any unwelcome microbial contamination.
Batch Consistency Tested
Guarantees that each batch of herbs is of the same safety, quality, and potency.
Heavy Metal Tested
Assures that the herbs do not contain dangerous levels of metals like arsenic, lead, or mercury.
Tested for 592 Pesticides
It is crucial to check that there are no unacceptable levels of any of 592 specific pesticides, many of which can potentially harm health.
3rd Party Lab Tested and Encapsulated at Highland Labs
Delivers an unbiased check of the product’s safety, purity, and quality.
Social Certifications of Botanicals
European Union Organic
US Organic Certification
These describe that growing conditions were up to the standards of these organizations.
The herbs are used with standards of Jewish law
The herbs are used in accordance with the standards of Islamic law
In addition we use vegetarian capsules as pork gelatin is often used in conventional capsules.
