Full Traceability: From Farm to Table

For almost 60 years generations of families have counted on NeoLife to provide them with products based in nature, backed by science that are naturally safe and proven effective. We take pride in our unwavering quality and safety standards — standards that exceed all global regulatory standards — that have ensured the effectiveness of our products. NeoLife has millions of satisfied customers in over 50 countries around the world, and for almost 60 years Neolife’s carefully charted pathway from the farm to the table guarantees you and your family the finest quality in product formulation.

Quality is NeoLife’s highest priority, and it is the Scientific Advisory Board that sets the quality standards and expectations for all NeoLife products and the ingredients that go into them. Everything that goes into each NeoLife product – every supplier and all raw material ingredients – must qualify before they can be used by meeting our strict demands for purity, potency, consistency, origin and other critical quality factors. Through our integrated global supply structure, all of this is monitored and managed by teams of highly skilled people in a state of the art quality assurance program that is unsurpassed in our industry.

Within our sophisticated systems and quality check processes we keep track of:

1. Meticulous Seed Selection:
Where something grows, how it grows, even the seed stock from which it is grown can be important determiners of quality.

2. Pristine Soil & Environment:
Our standards demand that only raw ingredient sources meeting our strict qualifications and highest standards, such as, fields in the least disturbed and most natural environments available be selected. These specifications also allow us to assure that all of our whole food concentrates and extracts are beyond organic and GMO-free.

wheat3. Field Crop Monitoring:
Crops are monitored and assessed even before they are harvested. This assures the very highest quality at the outset and also allows us to precisely track crop lots. Early monitoring is performed on fruits, vegetables and grains and all other materials we use for NeoLife products.

4. Nutrient Optimizing Harvest:
Our qualified ingredient suppliers also carefully select the very best time of the year to harvest crops in order to ensure both quality and the highest nutrient content.

5. Quality Control Raw Crop Analysis:
Because of these same demanding standards, crops are continually analyzed for nutrient content and quality leading up to processing.

6. Nutrient Extraction & Concentration:
How a crop is processed is another key determiner of quality. That is why only state of the art equipment is used that guarantees the purest extractions and concentrates with an absolute minimum of processed alteration.

7. Purity & Potency Verification:
Purity and potency are crucial to maintaining quality. All ingredients are held under strict quarantine and cannot be released for use until laboratory tests for purity and potency are verified.

8. Socially Responsible Manufacturing:
Once the raw materials are processed to our specifications, they are delivered to our socially responsible manufacturing facilities. These facilities are routinely audited to ensure that they are operating in a manner that guarantees the highest quality manufacturing with the lowest environmental burden. State of the art equipment combines various raw materials into different forms with maximum efficiency guaranteeing consistency from batch to batch.

science9. Quality Control & Laboratory Analysis:
Leading edge science continues to define NeoLife’s Quality Control System. All final products are tested and certified by the most reliable and validated scientific methods to ensure safety, quality and effectiveness. These methods are very important, but more importantly are the highly trained and skilled scientists that perform them that ensures that all of our quality standards for purity and potency are met.

Ongoing inspection and sample retention guarantee a future of quality. Meticulous inspection continues on the packaging line, and production samples are collected and retained to facilitate future tracking.

Each NeoLife product is the end result of top quality work by leading scientists, researchers and nutrition professionals – work that is based in state of the art technology and manufacturing and the very latest in science.

10. Product Delivery & Batch Tracking:
Even after NeoLife products are delivered to your door, batch numbers on every label allow us to answer your questions on ingredients or quality. The batch number that appears on every single NeoLife product acts as a window into the system that allows us to track every ingredient from its point of origin to its ultimate destination.

This batch numbering system is very important and highly documented so that NeoLife has full traceability forward – to the ultimate product destination, your home – and backward to the exact source of every ingredient. When a crop lot is first planted, the seeds themselves have a seed lot number assigned that ties to the origin and the quality testing performed. The growing crop itself is assigned a crop lot number which identifies where it is grown, how it was grown and how and when harvested along with all analytical, quality testing results.

When the crop lot arrives for further processing, extraction or concentration, another processed ingredient lot number is assigned which aides in tracking the material through the supply chain and tying in all quality tests related to the processing. Upon arrival at one of our manufacturing facilities, ingredients are assigned yet another lot number which identifies arrival dates, testing results and release for manufacturing dates.

When ingredients are combined into a finished product, that batch of product is assigned a unique batch number which identifies all of the specific ingredient lots that went into producing that particular batch. This is an important code number that allows NeoLife to identify every ingredient lot that went into the product as well as how the product was manufactured and every quality test performed on the production batch. Ultimately, when the batch of product is packaged, it is assigned a packaging batch number which appears on our product labels. This is the very important code number that allows NeoLife to trace every product forward to your home and every product ingredient backward throughout the entire supply chain to the very origin of every single raw material – Farm to Table.

NeoLife’s intricately developed batch numbering system yields a charted pathway from the Farm to the Table and guarantees you and your family the finest purity and potency and highest quality products available anywhere.

At NeoLife, Product philosophy is quite simple: absolute, unwavering pursuit of quality without compromise.

We believe that the right decisions about out bodies and our homes – deciding what to put into them and what to keep out of them – are among the most important decisions of our life. When it comes to our health, and the health of our children and families, there’s simply no room for compromise.

New Scientific Evidence: Carotenoids Protect Brain Function (found in NeoLife Carotenoid Complex)

carotenoid_complex_veggiesBy: John Miller, Scientific Advisory Board Director 

It has been known for many years that dietary carotenoids play diverse roles within our bodies as both fundamental nutrients in systems and processes as well as defenders of the cells and tissues that make up those systems. Much of that knowledge can be tied directly back to the many peer-reviewed scientific papers that showcased and substantiated the many benefits of NeoLife Carotenoid Complex.

Two particular carotenoids; lutein and zeaxanthin (both present in Carotenoid Complex) have been shown to protect delicate tissue in the center of the retina of the eye, the macula lutea, from the degenerative effects of the light that streams into our eyes every moment of our waking lives. Such knowledge is also proof that these carotenoids cross over the blood brain barrier to do that important job.Read More

1 Life-Changing Nutrition Mindset Tip

lani_meisThis mom of 6, shares how the NeoLife 3-Day Detox has not only transformed her body but how it also completely readjusts her mindset! 

“I was a competitive swimmer growing up and in college and have always been in pretty good shape – “once an athlete – always an athlete”. You know that saying. Anyway, I have 6 adult children – pretty much all athletes. When I reached 50 years old, I began noticing my mid section all of a sudden was no longer fit. I am now 56. I have struggled over the last several years to get motivated to do anything – even enough to enter the Challenge…

“I absolutely LOVE the NeoLife 3-Day Detox! I know it’s safe and healthy for my body thanks to the amazing Scientific Advisory Board – and it definitely works! A nice incentive is watching the numbers on the scale go down. I lost 5 pounds! I have done it 3 times now and each time experience what I call a mindset readjustment; a motivation to eat healthy, get back in the gym and a thankfulness that I am able to do both of those things. It literally changes my whole perspective!”*

How NeoLife helped this Super Mom & Baby

This Super Mom proves that by giving your body superior quality whole food nutrition you CAN get your pre-baby body back. We’re especially proud to share Christina’s 30 day health transformation this Mother’s Day weekend; not just because she strives to be the best version of herself – but also because she gives the best nutrition to her baby boy so he can too experience a better way of life!

“Like most moms, I’ve had weight issues after having children. Two years after giving birth to my son, I lost 10 kgs. but that postpartum belly still wouldn’t go away! I thought it is was part of my trademark as being a mother.

One day, I stumbled across pictures of NeoLife mothers, who looked sexy and vibrant. This inspired me again to reach my health goals but like other moms, being consistent with my workouts and preparing healthy dishes was a struggle for me as a mom and nurse who works shift schedules. Plus, there were also times that I woke up feeling so tired. And a few months earlier, I started to feel pain in my lower back possibly due to the physical demand of my work. That is when I decided to really do something about it – and joined the 30-Day Be Your Best Challenge.Read More
