About This Brand
Since 1968, NOW Foods has prided itself on being a leading producer of natural products, paving the way for the healthy foods and natural supplements in the mainstream market.
Approximately half a century ago, entrepreneur Elwood Richard started a small chain of health food stores, known as Health House, in the Chicagoland area. With his scientific background evoking his passion for health foods and nutritional supplements, it laid the early foundation for his company.
When the high cost of his stores’ health food products deterred business, he started his own natural products manufacturing company to supply his stores, which afforded him complete control over product cost and quality. From this moment NOW Foods was born.
Today NOW is still owned by the Richard family and has grown to become one of the most identifiable brands, delivering a widespread line of wholesome and natural products. NOW has always remained true to Elwood’s original vision—to meet consumer need for health foods by offering affordable, high quality natural products. Today the company manufactures and distributes more than 1,400 dietary supplements, natural foods, sports nutrition, and personal care products.
High Manufacturing Standards
Purchasing the best quality ingredients is just the first step in the manufacturing process. Once ingredients are received, their quality team begins testing to verify identity and purity in their state-of-the-art, in-house analytical laboratories.
Very few companies have the facilities, instrumentation, and staff to test their products and ingredients in-house. At NOW they perform approximately 16,000 tests on a monthly basis, all of them in their own facilities, using their own instrumentation, and performed by their own technicians.
The tests performed include screening to ensure the absence of adulterants and contaminants, and analyses to verify identity and potency. Once the ingredients have been combined in a product, the finished product is tested for attributes such as absorption, bioavailability and break-down after ingestion.
From beginning to end NOW takes the necessary steps during manufacturing to ensure purity, potency and safety. They meet and exceeds natural product manufacturing regulations, and has done this even before laws were put into place. The company has been a trailblazer in receiving Natural Products Association certification, manufacturing quality recognitions, and numerous awards.
