Professional Supplements at NW Integrative Medicine

What are professional supplements?

Professional supplements are often considered better than over-the-counter supplements due to several factors. Professional-grade supplements are manufactured to meet Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) standards, which are enforced by the FDA, ensuring advanced safety and quality standards. They are also referred to as "pharmaceutical-grade" or "medical-grade" and are made to the same strict standards as pharmaceutical drugs, unlike over-the-counter supplements. Professional supplements typically contain the best forms of vitamins and have higher concentrations, making them more effective. Additionally, they are less likely to contain fillers and are backed by research, ensuring the potency and quality of the ingredients. This level of regulation and quality control sets professional supplements apart from over-the-counter options, which are not held to the same rigorous standards and may contain lower quality ingredients and fillers.

Our manufactures use top quality high grade ingredients that are sourced from all over the world. Some manufactures may grow or manufacture their own ingredients in a controlled environment. Over the counter supplements cannot say that. However, you may find a limited amount of high quality over the counter brands on our website as well. Ingredients can be found on the product page, on the product sheet download link, or located on the product bottle.

What is CGMP?

CGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the FDA. CGMP provides for systems that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. Adherence to the CGMP regulations assures the identity, strength, quality, and purity of drug products by requiring that manufacturers of medications adequately control manufacturing operations. This includes establishing strong quality management systems, obtaining appropriate quality raw materials, establishing robust operating procedures, detecting and investigating product quality deviations, and maintaining reliable testing laboratories. This formal system of controls at a pharmaceutical company, if adequately put into practice, helps to prevent instances of contamination, mix-ups, deviations, failures, and errors. This assures that drug products meet their quality standards.

The CGMP requirements were established to be flexible in order to allow each manufacturer to decide individually how to best implement the necessary controls by using scientifically sound design, processing methods, and testing procedures. The flexibility in these regulations allows companies to use modern technologies and innovative approaches to achieve higher quality through continual improvement. Accordingly, the "C" in CGMP stands for "current," requiring companies to use technologies and systems that are up-to-date in order to comply with the regulations. Systems and equipment that may have been "top-of-the-line" to prevent contamination, mix-ups, and errors 10 or 20 years ago may be less than adequate by today's standards.

It is important to note that CGMP regulations for drugs contain the minimum requirements. Many pharmaceutical manufacturers are already implementing comprehensive, modern quality systems and risk management approaches that exceed these minimum standards.
