OUR RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
How we develop new products
A NEW QUALITY STANDARD CANADA’S BEST KEPT SECRET FOR OVER 50 YEARS!
Fact: Dietary Supplements in the U.S. don’t require the same rigorous level of government approval as Canadian products before going to market. Our U.S. supplements benefit from the demanding formulation requirements in Canada, bringing our customers a superior-quality product, second-to-none in the U.S. marketplace.
Fact: Canadian government standards for supplement formulation are so stringent, they are similar to the process used in the U.S. for drug formulations. Canadian natural health products (supplements) require each ingredient to be backed by clinical data to support their intended purpose, and all formulas are reviewed by Canadian agencies for compliance, efficacy and safety.
Fact: NU LIFE™ is formulated in Canada by a leading Naturopathic Doctor to meet and exceed Canadian health regulations. The result: unparalleled quality. It’s time to EMBRACE THE NU™ – a new standard in quality supplements now available in the U.S.
At NU LIFE™, we are proud of the care and research put into each one of our products. With the goal of producing only the highest quality therapeutics, we ensure every ingredient, in every formula, undergoes strict testing and quality protocols.
We know we are not alone in our demands for safe and effective products and want to share with you our formulation process so you know you can feel comfortable choosing NU LIFE™ products as part of your healthy lifestyle.
Our formulas are designed by a Naturopathic Doctor with a wealth of clinical experience. Every formula is carefully put together taking into consideration how the ingredients will interact, be absorbed and utilized, what issues do they address and how they will affect the body.
Our ingredients are non-GMO, free from common allergens and locally sourced wherever possible. When sourcing our ingredients, we always keep sustainability in mind, and will not use endangered, or near endangered species, or ingredients that are obtained using environmentally damaging harvesting processes.
Our research is thorough. We only use ingredients that are backed by published scientific studies, or have been extensively used in traditional herbal medicines, and adhere to the Canadian NNHPD (Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate) guidelines. We are constantly looking for the newest science so that we can provide the most effective and innovative formulas.
Our quality assurance checks are rigorous. Every product, from its individual ingredients through to its finished product state, are tested for at least:
- Identity of ingredients (they are what they say they are)
- Active components (the component that provides the therapeutic action)
- Heavy metals
- Pesticides and herbicides
What does this mean for you? It means that by the time a NU LIFE™ product reaches you, it has undergone multiple checks and balances to deliver the highest quality product that is effective for you and your family.
