Why 3rd Party Certification?
One way to assure integrity of your products so your consumers are guaranteed high quality products, as well as maintaining compliance with regulatory bodies, is to allow a third-party to test and certify your products.
Ingredients in the dietary supplement and functional food industry are unique because while most of these ingredients do not have to undergo pre-market FDA approval, they are still regulated by the FDA from product integrity perspective. Moreover, consumers deserve products that are, consistent, made using safe ingredients, and ones that help them maintain health and wellness.
A third-party testing company such as Canomiks can test your ingredients for quality control and quality assurance so you can not only differentiate your product but also protect against regulatory and brand risk.
What is Canomiks Certification?
Ingredients used in these products have been verified by Canomiks technology to have a healing effect on the genes important for maintaining health and wellness (eg. gut health, cardiac health, vascular health, joint health, mental health, metabolic health).
Samples have been tested by Canomiks scientists using the Canomiks technology platform for contaminants (LPS, lead, mercury, arscenic, radiation).
The packaging and informational materials that have been tested by Canomiks are permitted to use the ‘Canomiks Certified’ badge.
The products have been tested using the Canomiks platform, which is based on the principles of data science, artificial intelligence, systems biology to verify ingredient-induced gene expression.
