ORAC Health is a UK based supplement brand and is on a mission to spread the importance of antioxidants, what they are and how they work. As someone who took part in long distance running, I was always looking at which foods were good or bad for me and which vitamins & minerals would help me strengthen my body, promote faster recovery and replace the essential nutrients lost during my runs. My serious research really began when the health of a family member started to deteriorate. Prescribed drugs and low-quality foods were quickly taking a toll on his health. I was determined to find a way to help him. Health and well-being are at the forefront of what drives me, so providing the purest high quality, affordable supplements to those who need them is my priority, in order to bring good health and well-being to all. I believe the primary purpose of any food supplement product should be that it genuinely helps the consumer.
Just like all wines aren’t of the same quality, the same goes for supplements. ORAC Health supplement is produced by a company that has been manufacturing for many well-known brands on the market, as well as developing and creating their own formulations, with high-quality products for practitioners and the general public for many decades. These include multi-award-winning products such as the Natural Organic Awards and the Janey Lee Grace platinum award for best vitamin. ORAC Health is confident in the quality of my brand and the manufacturing process, the same which has kept holistic practitioners loyal to our manufacturer’s products for decades.
ORAC Health supplement is manufactured in an ISO Class 8 pharmaceutical clean-room. These classifications are awarded based on advanced air analysis, measuring number of particles per square foot of air. Not only does our manufacturer meet Class 8 standards (one class higher than is necessary for supplement manufacture), the cleaning procedures are so effective that when tested, their clean-room met air quality levels of an ISO Class 7 clean-room. The air and temperature levels are automatically controlled with twenty complete air changes every hour.
ORAC Healths’ manufacturer is a proud member of the Health Food Manufacturers Association who certify that they follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). In addition, they are certified by the Soil Association for the manufacture of organic products, the Vegetarian Society for the production of vegan and vegetarian products and AIB International who monitor quality of food production through on-site analysis and tests. They have also passed inspections by several private and government agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration, Health Canada and Environmental Health.
ORAC Healths’ manufacturer is one of Britain’s oldest supplement manufacturers and is dedicated to responsible and transparent manufacturing processes. This includes a low carbon footprint using blue power energy and exclusion of fossil fuels to minimize effect on the environment. ORAC Health believes in transparency and clean supplements. The focus is to provide people with clean, high-quality products without unnecessary heating, excipients, or the use of binders and bulking agents. This allows me to provide my clients with the supplements that only contain the ingredients that provide benefit to the human body. The products are never misleading and ORAC Health never makes unauthorised health claims. ORAC Health ensures product labels are easy to understand and are not written or designed in a way to misrepresent the product contents. Keeping prices honest means that customers get what they pay for at a fair price, with no unnecessary mark-up. Ultimately this means that not only are the products of an exceptionally high quality, but they are affordable too.
ORAC Health supplement is produced by 4 HACCP (Hazard analysis and critical control point) trained staff members and a HACCP system is in place to guarantee the safety of the products. Part of this system includes testing incoming herbal ingredients for microbial contamination by an independent lab to ensure they are safe and fit for human consumption and do not contain harmful bacteria. Quality inspectors perform regular checks along the production line to ensure complete compliance to the product specification and accepted quality standards. Products that do not meet the standards are rejected. Documentation of every batch is kept for complete traceability and products are only released after each one passes rigorous quality checks. A comprehensive quality manual with technical directives details every aspect of production and quality assurance. The technical directives and sourcing of ingredients is routinely reviewed.
The purity and sustainability of ingredients are of the utmost importance. If ingredients don’t meet these standards they will not be made. Sourcing good quality, non-GMO ingredients is a primary focus when formulating. ORAC Healths’ manufacturer focuses on where raw materials come from and investigates with extensive research and testing to verify ingredients are what they purport to be. Pathology, biotransformation, bioavailability, and interactions lead on to formulating the best complexes possible.
