EMPIRICA is a Pharmaceutical grade like product manufactured in an FDA, GMP and NSF certified facility and the FDA is in this manufacturing facility 2x per year doing audits per GMP guidelines. In fact our products are even approved by TGA which is Australia’s version of the FDA and we would argue even more strict.
Reliable Potency and Enhanced Bioavailability
The bioavailability of our formulas is one of our top priorities. Too many times insufficient bioavailability hinders a nutrient’s potential. This is a critical area that must be addressed and EMPIRICA is on the forefront of tackling this issue.
Albion® Chelated Minerals
To solve the issue of bioavailability, and to make sure you are getting the most for your money, we use patented chelated minerals from Albion Laboratories. Only Albion minerals have the science to stop the ionization in the stomach – absorbing at a much higher rate than other mineral salts, and showing an increase in safety, digestibility and stomach comfort.
Activated B Vitamins
When we say we use activated B vitamins, we mean that we use the activated forms of critical B vitamins; including state-of-the-art 5-MTHF, methylcobalamin, and benfotiamine. Everyone is different, and they process vitamins differently. Using these vitamins in their activated form will help ensure optimal results in every person, every time.
At EMPIRICA, we aim to offer the most dynamic and innovative formulas on the market. We keep up with the latest research, guaranteeing that our products reflect the ingredient and dosage levels supported by the most current data, to encourage maximum effectiveness.
HPMC Vegetable Capsules
Many of our formulas are encapsulated in HPMC, generation II, vegetable capsules with quick- dissolve technology. Our generation II vegetable capsules have disintegration times under five minutes, are made from plant fiber, and are naturally free of animal products, preservatives, gelatin, wheat and dairy. HPMC capsules are GRAS (generally recognized as safe), and Halal and Vegetarian Society approved.
Acid-Resistance and Controlled-Release
In addition to providing our formulas in highly- bioavailable forms, we also employ acid-resistant HPMC capsules and enteric-coated softgels for ingredients that are sensitive to stomach acids, such as probiotics and specific enzymes. These acid-resistant capsules and softgels ensure that the formulas pass through volatile stomach acids and reach the small intestine before being metabolized. Our acid-resistant and other controlled-release technologies allow formulas to be dispensed and absorbed at the ideal time and location within the body, which encourages optimum effectiveness and results.
Quality Control and Quality Assurance
Quality is not just something we do, it’s part of our culture. All of our processes are completely controlled so we can ensure material, component and product quality and safety from beginning to end. Our Quality Control department tests and verifies the identity, purity, potency and composition of all of raw materials when they come in, and all finished products before they leave the facility – this includes heavy metal testing for lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium on every single lot. As an added safety measure, in instances where we suspect there is even the slightest possibility of contamination, we have the product tested for a wide variety of potential contaminants (such as residual solvents, pesticides, PCBs, gluten, citrinin, peak-X, etc.), allowing EMPIRICA to stand behind its products as the purest in the industry. Our Quality Assurance department oversees all of these processes – plus our manufacturing, production, packaging, labeling and marketing operations – guaranteeing everything we do is in compliance. We ensure quality in every single department, making sure that everything is right the first time.
