Manufacturing

Manufacturing

Designs for Health is dedicated to providing top-quality, reliable and efficacious dietary supplement products to the professional health care community. As evidence of our exceptionally high quality standards, the Designs for Health team maintains a strict quality policy and vendor qualification program. Both are designed to formally express and document the quality expectations and performance requirements of our vendors, while ensuring their compliance with FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs).

The Importance of Specialization

Few single manufacturing facilities can provide the level of proficiency mandated by Designs for Health for the production of capsules, tablets, softgels, powders, liquids, bars, and specialty items such as sours and topicals.

Each product form requires unique machinery, expertise, quality control measures, and raw materials handling. Producing a nutrition bar that holds together, a powder that mixes well, a softgel that doesn't leak, and a tablet that dissolves well, all require unique levels of specialization. Only by contracting with the "best of breed" in each product-manufacturing category, can Designs for Health meet its own high level of production standards.

Vendor Qualification Program

Designs for Health supplements are manufactured in select facilities that have met our stringent quality standards. Every Designs for Health vendor must undergo a formal qualification process to evaluate procedures and activities related to the manufacture, packaging, and holding of Designs for Health dietary ingredients and finished dietary supplements. Key elements of the qualification process include:

  • Vendor evaluation
  • Documentation review
  • Evaluation of Standard Operating Procedures, i.e., manufacturing controls and processes
  • Existence of a Designs for Health-approved testing and monitoring program for raw materials and finished products

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs)

We fully guarantee that our products are produced utilizing the highest standards of manufacturing. Each product is evaluated and monitored for quality throughout the manufacturing process.

Specifically, we guarantee that every Designs for Health nutritional supplement...

  • Contains only qualified, superior raw materials
  • Meets required specifications for quality and purity
  • is evaluated and monitored for potential contaminants such as filth, heavy metals, pesticides, and microbiological organisms (Designs for Health packaging is also monitored to ensure against contamination)
  • is analyzed to confirm the quantity of all dietary ingredients, thereby ensuring the consistency and accuracy of our label claims
  • is manufactured at FDA inspected facilities with stringent internal quality control procedures and documentation systems that conform to one or more of these industry standards and/or certifications: NPA (Natural Products Association), NSF (National Sanitary Foundation), OTC (Over the Counter Drug GMPs), TGA (Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration), and the requirements of the FDA Dietary Supplement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs)
