In the 1980’s Global Marketing Associates was one of the first companies to introduce standardized herbal extracts to the United States. Quality Assurance was important then and is no less important to us today. At GMA, we continue to focus intensely on our quality in every area of our daily operations.
GMA works closely with top-tier scientists to ensure ingredients meet their scientific functional claims. GMA sources only from reputable manufacturers in accordance with our quality philosophy. Some factories are part of the GMA group while others are independent. All of our factories are ISO 9002 Certified, and all new manufacturers are qualified first to meet cGMP guidelines.
GMA insists on only material which has been tested to meet or surpass our requirements for standardization and microbiological / heavy metals / organoleptic specifications. Substandard materials are rejected at the first level if they fail our independent lab tests. We employ top-rated, independent laboratories such as Eurofins and Silliker to test our products. Substandard materials are rejected at the first level if they fail our independent lab tests.
Our shipments are always independently tested using statistical sampling methods before being released. Standardized extracts are generally accompanied by independent lab reports, and GMA supplies a Certificate of Analysis with every product we sell.
