Process and Quality


Nutrilite® is the world's leading brand of vitamin, mineral and dietary supplements.* Why? It's in our nature! Nutrilite is the only global vitamin and mineral brand that grows, harvests and processes plants on our own certified organic farms.

We use natural, organic plant nutrients, highly purified vitamins and naturally occurring minerals sourced from around the world to meet our exacting quality standards. Our scientists, technicians and engineers from 20 different fields of study work continuously to develop new formulations, products and processing methods, evaluating our finished products to ensure they meet precise standards for quality, safety and efficacy.

Every ingredient used in Nutrilite products undergoes extensive research, testing and formulating so the end result is a product guaranteed to meet the nutritional needs of people on their way to optimal health.

Our Research & Development team reads thousands of research papers every year to find the best ingredients to include in our products. We conduct our own research, and report the findings through published research manuscripts and at scientific conferences around the globe.

We are the only global vitamin, mineral, dietary supplement company to grow, harvest and process plants on our own certified organic farms. In 2004, we introduced a program to formalize and enhance botanical quality control for ingredients grown outside the Nutrilite farms. Our standards include a focus on sustainable farming practices, including organic farming whenever possible. We insist on growing plants from seeds, using the part that offers greatest nutritional content, and harvesting plants only when they reach their nutritional peak.


For vitamins, minerals, and botanical extracts, we use multiple quality measures to ensure only the best ingredients are included in Nutrilite products. Our stringent ingredient specifications require certificates of analysis, and we conduct our own analytical testing, periodically auditing our ingredient suppliers to ensure compliance.

Although not required, for all Nutrilite dietary supplements we choose to follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) to ensure that Nutrilite products are safe, properly identified, and of the highest quality. In fact, over 15,000 quality tests are conducted every single month to ensure a consistent, safe, and effective product.
