About Vital Nutrients
Vital Nutrients Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Quality assurance and quality control are the first priorities at Vital Nutrients (VN). Whilst all natural product companies claim to have the best quality, almost none complete all the expensive steps required to comprehensively ensure that quality and purity are consistently achieved every time. Vital Nutrients uses Independent Laboratory Testing with third party-owned laboratories for these quality and purity checks; a procedure that is unique to VN. Comprehensive proof and full guarantee of quality and purity can therefore be provided.
Laboratory quality assurance is not easy to ensure. Each of the independent laboratories used by Vital Nutrients is audited and verified to ensure that scientifically valid analytical methods and ethical laboratory practices for raw material and finished product testing are followed.

Vital Nutrients uses extracted and concentrated natural ingredients, including fish oils, herbs, minerals, and amino acids. They use the concentrations shown to be effective in published studies for providing targeted relief for or support of vital functions. The goal is maximum effectiveness through proven quality, purity, and potency.
Although other companies offer products similar to the Vital Nutrients products featured here, the labelling claims regarding the potency, authenticity, and purity of VN products are not matched by any other company in the market.
