They enable us to collect memories with our family and friends. They really are our memory makers. Are we not thankful that we have these open spaces reserved for the wildlife, plants, and natural landscapes for everyone to enjoy. Thank you Theodore Roosevelt!

These historical sites encourage us to learn from the past and inspire the following generations to improve the future. Our US National Parks encourage coming generations to unplug from electronics and get back to nature. With 58 US National Parks combined with city and county parks, the opportunities are endless. There is a park in everyone’s backyard.

When we get out and feel the air on our faces through a hike, run, job, paddle, bicycle, unicycle, skateboard, or even rollerblading we feel free. We get to see amazing natural beauties that remind us what life is about.

We can sneak away for those little moments to enjoy with our loved ones, friends or maybe even a solitary moment to regroup, refocus our goals and reevaluating where our life is leading us.

Understanding Glandular Sources and Animal Health

First,  90% of Priority One’s glandular’s are sourced from Denmark, and unlike Australian, or New Zealand glands, Denmark is the only country that has been antibiotic, and growth hormone free for all bovine and and porcine glands since 1998.  This means that our glands are pure, untreated, and retain the best balance of naturally occurring hormones available on the market.  glandular-sources-2014

Second, we source farm to processor, this means that not only do we have the ability to trace our glands to the country, but we retain all of the veterinarian release forms, that trace each and every animal to the farming region, and processor in which they were obtained from.  This not only assures us that the glands are indeed from Denmark, but it also assures us that the glands are handled in a timely fashion, allowing them to retain the optimal freshness before processing.  Most companies can not trace their glands beyond the country or region of origin.

Third, The link between antibiotics in the food chain and human resistance is striking, look at this quote: from a recent CBS report on Denmark and their success in removing this danger from the food chain.

” I think the Danish and European experience indicate that there will be real and measurable public health benefits,” she said. “There’ll be improvements in food safety and actually in the prevalence of drug resistant infections in people.”   says Dr. Ellen Silbergeld

Finally, here is the link to the Australian viewpoint on antibiotics in their meat processing, and food chain, just as an excerpt, it clearly states that they feel it is highly unlikely that antibiotic resistance can develop from antibiotics in the food chain, and that farmers use antibiotics for the health of the animals. Australia’s viewpoint on antibiotic use in animals in the food chain.

Full Label Disclosure

R.E.M.Priority One is the only company on the market with a complete label
disclosure policy.  

This means we require our raw material suppliers to provide us with flow charts and full disclosure of process materials so that we in turn can disclose this to you the customer!  If a supplier chooses not to submit these documents our quality control personnel reject these incoming raw materials and they are not allowed in our Priority One product line.

Adrenoplex label PriorityOneVitamins
Adrenoplex label PriorityOneVitamins

Most companies limit their disclosure to only ingredients actually added at the time of manufacture, this as you will learn in later posts is not the whole picture, allergens, glutens, animal products and preservatives have all been found by our quality control department at the review stage and these ingredients have been rejected for use. Does your supplement company have this type of commitment to quality?

Priority One Vitamins Labeling

Priority One does not try to mislead the physician or patient in the labeling of our supplements. Since we manufacture in house and source our own raw ingredients we are able to know exactly what is in our products and make sure you do also!

For a label to label comparison I will be updating this post in the next few weeks so stay tuned, and you will see examples of what other supplement companies are refusing to show you on their labels!

Businessman with an open hand ready to seal a deal

When I say quality is an action word, I really mean it.  This isn’t a glossy advertisement it is quality at work everyday with every product, and every employee.  I am proud to say we are a third generation privately held company, and our family would love to show you what we do every day that makes us different than our competitors.

front-of-our-facility

Yes we have an open door policy, we recommend touring and visiting our facility. We find that this helps physicians and students become more familiar with the manufacturing process as well as the terminology that comes with the manufacturing process. We feel it gives physician’s a strong voice in answering their patient’s questions. Such as where their supplements come from and details of the manufacturing process. We would be happy to familiarize you with CGMP or current good manufacturing practices, and labeling guidelines. As part of their education many students have toured our facility.

bastyr-touring-studentsStudents, from Bastyr University, NUNM, and SCNM as well as many many practitioners have already enjoyed visiting us yearly, please we extend you a warm welcome……be our guest.

We have not lost touch with you the health-care provider, and your patients. We are available to listen to you, and we value your thoughts.Vitamins
