For 75 years, Nutrilite® food supplements have set the industry standard for quality and innovation. From the very beginning, we have used organic farming techniques and stringent processing standards to carefully grow and extract nature’s most beneficial nutrients so you can enjoy more energy, more vitality, more life.

Nutrilite: Best of Nature. Best of Science.

No other supplement compares to the Nutrilite brand because no other supplement is created like the Nutrilite brand. — This Interactive Video explains why.

We are #1 in Online Health & Beauty Sales for Eighth Consecutive Year

Our Independent Business Owners have once again propelled the company to the TOP SPOT in online Health & Beauty sales. According to Internet Retailer’s annual Top 500 Guide to the web, we are ranked FIRST in the Health & Beauty category for the eighth consecutive year. According to Internet Retailer estimates, our online sales were more than $885 million in 2009.
Our leadership in this category is largely due to the high quality and appeal of our major health and beauty brands, NUTRILITE supplements and ARTISTRY skin care and cosmetics.

The world’s leader, the industry’s finest.
Nutrilite is more than just a leader in the nutrition industry – we are a pioneer. In fact, we were the first to formulate, produce, and sell a multivitamin/mineral product in North America. And from the very beginning, we recognized that whole-plant compounds offered the widest array of nutrients. So it is only natural that our formulations are based on concentrates made from whole plant sources.

We have been growing for over 70 years.
The Nutrilite brand is the only global vitamin and mineral brand to grow, harvest, and process plants on their own certified organic farms. This level of control is rare these days. Yet it exemplifies the extra care and attention you will find throughout our entire formulation process.

We have countless operations, but only one standard.
From seed to final serving, Nutrilite controls every phase of the production process. Take a close look at this unbroken chain of quality and you will see that we meet or exceed the industry’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in every operation that we perform.

The best of science.
In the field of nutrition, there are leaders and there are followers. And one of the key areas where these two groups diverge is scientific research. Here, Nutrilite shines. Nutrilite products are supported by scores of scientists, microbiologists, chemists, pharmacists, nutritionists, and other technicians. Together, these talented minds conduct research on everything from new plant varieties to the role that nutrition plays in human health.

Everything nature intended.
Nutrilite products provide the phytonutrients that are vital to good health because the Nutrilite brand creates nutritional concentrates made from whole plants. We believe this is nutrition the way nature intended.

We control everything except the weather.
If you were to trace the journey of a single Nutrilite supplement from its beginning as a young seedling to the final tablet, you would witness something that is quite rare these days. You would see that our standards are higher than they need be. You would also notice that our people work harder than they have to. And our preoccupation with quality is evident in every operation that we perform. In short, you would see that every step in Nutrilite’s production chain is a case study in quality control.

The changing nature of nutrition.
The field of nutrition is an ever-changing science. New research can often lead to formulations that provide new benefits for our customers. But before any new supplement is considered suitable for production, it must first pass a stringent evaluation process. To ensure that new products meet quality guidelines, our scientists thoroughly research the scientific background of a new formulation. They determine the needs of our customers and IBOs. They also assess development feasibility, conduct pilot trials, perform biological activity and clinical assessments, and even establish the framework for product education. This process ensures that all new supplements comply with corporate philosophy. Equally important, it ensures that every Nutrilite supplement will provide the most beneficial and well-conceived formulations that combine the best of nature and the best of science.

We have success down to a science.
You might say that Nutrilite supplements have an unfair advantage over other supplements. You see, our products are among the few nutritional brands to be supported by the kind of scientific staff and laboratory facilities that would make universities envious. Although we now produce some of the world’s finest supplements, our search for new concentrates and better formulations remains a never-ending process. This process involves everything from chromatography analysis to researching new plant varieties to finding the best growing techniques under the sun.

Quality can be traced back to our roots.
Decades before organic farming was recognized for its health benefits, the crops used in Nutrilite supplements were grown using sustainable, chemical-free methods. Instead of relying on harmful sprays to control pests, we let nature fight our battles. Good bugs kill the bad bugs. Hawks control crop-destroying birds and rodents. Sheep destroy weeds through grazing. And pepper spray discourages other predators. Our organic farming practices are more costly and labor intensive, but it is the only way to ensure that the crops that make up your family’s supplements are free of herbicides, pesticides, and unwanted residues.

Turning plants into concentrates.
The science of turning raw plant materials into nutrient-rich concentrates used in Nutrilite products requires special processing techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Within hours of harvesting, our plants are dehydrated using carefully controlled temperatures and delicate airflow to preserve the heat-sensitive nutrients. This process kills microbes that could multiply while locking-in the natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients. The dehydrated material is then milled into a fine powder and mixed to create the unique Nutrilite concentrate blends.

Manufactured like no other supplement.
After the barrage of testing at the Lakeview facility, the first thing that greets a milled concentrate at Buena Park’s manufacturing facility is – you guessed it – more tests. Here, specially designed equipment ensures full potency and freedom from contaminants. Once these milled powders are cleared for production, they head over to our weigh-up facility where they are meticulously measured on computer-controlled scales. From there, it is a short trip to the giant granulators that combine the various ingredients into a uniform mixture. The blended powder is then compressed into tablets and finally coated with a light solution for easier swallowing. From start to finish, the entire process is designed with only one thing in mind – to ensure that every ingredient and every operation meets or exceeds the exacting standards of Good Manufacturing Practices.

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
GMP regulations outline the quality control requirements used in the manufacturing, processing, packaging, and storage of foods and drugs. These strict guidelines are set by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in America to assure the safety, identity, quality, and integrity of products. Compliance to GMPs is a key element in ensuring that Nutrilite’s high quality standards are maintained from plant to plant and from tablet to tablet. It is important to note that while some companies strive to meet these standards, we easily exceed them. In fact, we strive to manufacture to an even higher set of standards – those of the pharmaceutical industry.

Quality you can measure.
Each month, we manufacture over half a billion tablets of Nutrilite supplements. How can we be sure that every supplement is produced to the same high standards? For starters, we employ a team of quality assurance experts dedicated to ensure that each and every tablet manufactured meets our quality specifications. These chemists, microbiologists, and technicians patrol every operation – testing each manufacturing lot dozens of times to ensure that the 500 million tablets a month produced by Nutrilite measure up to precise specifications for quality, potency, size, weight, and hardness.

Distribution.
From the moment our crops are harvested, we concentrate, formulate, and package our supplements to carefully seal in nature’s valuable nutrients. With “just-in-time” storage, the products that reach the warehouse are already ordered, paid-for, and ready for shipping. So, unlike other brands that may store inventory for months on end, any Nutrilite product that you receive will be among the freshest in the industry. We are the only brand that grows our own crops on our own certified-organic farms, processes our own plants, and then ships the finished products directly to our customers to guarantee freshness. No other supplements are grown, processed, and shipped to you in this way.
