Mitigations Raw herbs Our ingredient mitigations are determined by risk level. Mitigations describe how a risk level is reduced by the design of our quality systems. Immediate precautions are designed to block hazards in normal conditions. Also included in these mitigations are at least one upstream and one downstream protection to block the hazard from entering the processing chain. Blocking the Risks These mitigations are ingredient-specific and are added to each ingredient specification sheet, assuring that each time that ingredient is received it is reviewed and tested for its unique hazard(s). All ingredients have risks and require systems to block sources of contaminants. We do not rely on the supplier for your patient’s safety. Risks such as radiation contamination, heavy metals, E. coli, salmonella, staph, dangerous spores, and economic adulteration are monitored by our rigorous testing methodology. By identifying such risks ahead of time, the mitigation process enables us to block these hazards. Antimicrobial Susceptibility All finished products are tested for the heavy metals arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. This is done by our primary third party laboratory that we have hand selected. This laboratory holds the coveted international ISO 17025 certificate. Email Address Please enter a valid email address. Notify Me Thanks for subscribing!
