Testing

Functional Cellular Testing

Testing is one of the most overlooked and misunderstood elements in the nutraceutical space today. Having empirical evidence as to safety, efficacy, absorption, and interaction to name a few should be mandatory for production but is simply not the case. Common sense dictates that if you have a line of products with these four categories of testing as part of your “go to market” directives you will be much better prepared for any and all scrutiny that may arise.

Our testing labs and manufacturing partners hold the highest commitment to ingredient testing and monitoring at every stage of product formulation and manufacturing.  Purity, quality, verification of guaranteed potency and efficacy for each ingredient is substantiated at the highest levels.

Further, all ingredients and products are tested for their functional properties and behaviors, impacting the performance, stability, processability, and appearance of a formulation. Ingredients, compounds, and final product formulations are evaluated through specific cell line assays to determine their ability to mitigate many specific biochemical and molecular mechanisms leading to cell and tissue injury.

The end goal of LFR formulations is to combat the many forces that ultimately contribute to chronic degenerative conditions of aging, while providing the body the highest quality nutritional and functional food product formulations necessary to maintain optimal health.

Destructive processes that can attack and degrade every cell, organ and system of our bodies such as free radicals, reactive oxygen species (ROS), lipid peroxidation, matrix metalloproteinases (MMP’s), malondialdehyde (MDA), Advanced Glycation End Products (AGE’s) causing crosslinking, etc. are evaluated regarding ingredient benefits.

Recently the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health worked alongside AOAC International in producing lists of priority ingredients for which there should eventually be required, reliable methods and standards of testing.

While authorities evaluate “candidate methods” for testing, Life Factor Research is already involved in state-of-the-art quality control processes that waits for no suggested guidelines before acting on the behalf of the consumer.
