All of our raw materials must pass stringent quality controls
by our manufacturers before they are utilized. In addition,
we use only those precursor materials that are of the highest
quality and that pass our in house quality inspection.
All raw materials are tested for purity prior to production.
Quality control engineers have the authority during any stage
of production to reject any product that does not adhere to
our strict quality standards. All personnel follow explicit
written protocols that are strictly enforced during the manufacturing
process. All steps during the manufacturing process are documented
and reviewed by quality control specialists. Manufacturing
equipment is properly maintained and cleaned on a predetermined
schedule that is documented in company logs for review by the
Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration.
The Department of Agriculture also has jurisdiction over equipment
and GMP's (Good Manufacturing Practices). This helps to ensure
the absence of any contamination during the manufacturing process.
Production records associated with each unit of a product,
including all raw materials used, are filed for two years past
the expiration date.
Further quality control is demonstrated by:
Product analysis - This is recorded for each
product that is manufactured. The analysis contains the specific
components of the herbal product, including a lot number for
each of the ingredients, as well as the production methods
Raw materials - These are purchased only
from reputable wholesalers. Each raw material in our products
must come with a Certificate of Analysis obtained from the
Packaging material - All packaging materials
are purchased only from reputable wholesalers. Specific Quality
Assurance personal ensure that all labels are assigned to the
proper products to avoid any confusion. All new labels are
cross checked with the original master label to make certain
that there have been no mistakes during the printing process.
Lot Numbers - Once an order request has been
received, the herbal supplement to be manufactured is entered
in the production records and a lot number is assigned. The
raw materials are released to the client after all products
have been checked for authenticity.
Markit Health, LLC Manufacturers Guidelines
In addition to the protocols described above, Markit Health, LLC and its manufacturers adheres to the following
manufacturing guidelines to ensure the utmost quality control:
Blending and Granulation - All equipment
used in the process of mixing and granulation is inspected
by the Director of Operations prior to use. Raw materials are
then inspected for the final time. The lots are then processed
using strict written guidelines for each herbal product. Following
granulation and blending, the powder blends are stored in specially
designed containers to ensure freshness and to avoid any contamination.
Once again the Director of Operations ensures that all new
blends are labeled appropriately.
Tabletization and Compression - Once a test
unit has been processed, a sample unit is issued to Quality
Assurance to be compared to retained samples in order to ensure
product integrity. Once the new unit has been approved by Quality
Assurance, full line production may begin. Quality Assurance
inspections are conducted using set protocols for the caplets.
As with the blending and granulation process, the caplets are
stored in specifically designed containers to ensure freshness
and to avoid any contamination. The Director of Operations
makes certain that all new capsules are labeled appropriately.
Packaging and Inspection - Upon completion
of processing, the final product is inspected again by the
Quality Assurance staff. Broken caplets, and any other defective
products are removed from the lot. Products released by the
Quality Assurance staff are subsequently either packaged for
bulk storage or bottled and labeled for consumer use (labels
contain the appropriate information required by the Federal
and Drug Administration; batch numbers are logged). All finished
products are properly labeled and closed with a tamper proof
seal. The Quality Assurance unit also retains samples of raw
materials for one year past the expiration date of the last
product they are used in. The unit also retains samples of
finished products for one year past the product expiration
date. These samples are maintained under controlled conditions.
