Meet Natural Factors
Family Owned, Internationally Respected
We would like to share some information with our customers on one of our long-standing companies, Natural Factors. Natural Factors, based in British Columbia, is one of the most respected supplement companies in the industry, and in our opinion also maintains some of the highest standards with the highest quality products.
Standards & Certifications
Family-owned for more than fifty years, the company is one of the only nutritional companies to have their own organic farms; their own extraction, encapsulation, and production facilities; and their own labs and research facilities. In addition, they are also one of the few branded manufacturers of nutraceuticals in North America to have their own softgel encapsulation facility.
Their manufacturing facilities conform to all the requirements of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and they are also certified by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia (TGA). The TGA has the most stringent guidelines for manufacturing dietary supplements in the world — if you meet their standards, you meet them all. Natural Factors uses ISURA, Canada’s only independent natural health supplement and food product verification and certification organization that provides mass spectrometry and non-GMO testing from seed-to-table to insure, in their words, "the seal of approval that is your guarantee that our products are non-GMO, safe, pure, and potent."
Extensive Organic Farmland
Natural Factors has almost 1,000 acres of certified organic farmland in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia where the fertile soil has been in the making for thousands of years. Water from Otter Lake flooded the valley and left behind organic material creating rich alluvial soil that is six feet deep. Natural Factors uses no pesticides — not even organic pesticides.
Science & Scientific Team
Natural Factors consults with scientists and researchers at universities and research centers around the world, including Bastyr University in Seattle, many of which have been instrumental in developing new standards, procedures, or testing methodologies that have contributed greatly to the research and development of safe, efficacious, natural health products.
Products With History & Results
Some products from Natural Factors are among the most popular on our shelves.
Natural Factors is the exclusive distributor for BioSil®, the famous, perennial silica supplement for bone, collagen, and hair, skin and nail support. BioSil is a very well absorbed form of silica.
Their PGX® products reduce appetite by promoting a feeling of fullness, help lower the glycemic index, and help maintain healthy blood sugar and total cholesterol levels already within the normal range.
CurcuminRich® Theracurmin® has more published trials than any other curcumin product on the market as to its bioavailability and efficacy. The reduced particle size of this curcumin and its unique natural suspension have demonstrated a dramatic increase in its absorption compared to other enhanced forms of curcumin.
The WellBetX® line includes a 500 mg berberine product. Berberine plays an important role in blood sugar (glucose) metabolism and cardiovascular health. It also helps maintain healthy blood sugar and total cholesterol levels already within the normal range. WellBetX Berberine is the #1 selling berberine.
Stress-Relax Line For a Calmer Life
The Stress-Relax line encompasses ten products offering nutritional and herbal support for a healthier, calmer life. Products for stress management, relaxation, and sleep are offered. Pharma GABA® is a superior source and naturally produced form of the important brain compound Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA). Clinical studies have shown that Pharma GABA® helps increase the production of alpha brain waves to create a profound sense of physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus. Tranquil Sleep® provides a unique combination of compounds, including L-theanine, to support relaxation and enhance natural sleep quality. Melatonin in different dosages rounds out this helpful little line.
We hope you enjoyed learning about this excellent and respected company.
