Health and wellness company Amerifit Nutrition has announced certification of several of its products by public health and safety company NSF International, including its women's health supplement Estroven.
The products receiving certification were Estroven, Extra Strength Estroven, Estroven PMS, Sootherbs zinc, echinacea & vitamin C lozenges, and Flex Able orange drink mix and chewables products.
NSF confirmed that Amerifit Nutrition successfully completed all requirements of its American National Standard 173-Dietary Supplements, the standard on which the NSF Dietary Supplement Certification Program is based. Requirements of the standard include label and formulation review, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) plant audits, product testing, safety evaluation and ongoing monitoring to ensure continued conformance.
Commenting on the news, Craig R. Larsen, Amerifit Nutrition's director of product integrity, said: "Achieving NSF dietary supplement certification has been a major initiative in our quality assurance program. We targeted NSF certification because of its stringent facility and testing standards, and the depth and breadth of its entire quality program. We appreciate the detail, the follow up and the scrutiny our products went through for this certification."
Explaining the advantages of the certification, Kathleen Pompliano, manager of the Dietary Supplement Program added: "NSF certification verifies that Amerifit Nutrition's products are manufactured with the utmost quality and offers consumers the assurance they may need when purchasing nutritional products,"
