What is the quality system in place for the pharmaceutical grade supplements?
Dr. Jellinek only recommend Physician Designed Pharmaceutical Grade Supplements & Vitamins.
These products meet pharmaceutical standards. This means that when you purchase pharmaceutical grade supplements you can be assured of quality. GMP, or Good Manufacturing Practices, is part of the quality control system that covers the manufacturing and testing of pharmaceutical products. Within this quality system are guidelines that direct aspects of production and testing that can affect the quality of the product. When you purchase pharmaceutical grade supplements you know that if something is listed on the label it IS in the bottle. The manufacturing facility of Neurobiologix is certified for good manufacturing practices (cGMP). Before a formula is released from these manufacturers it must pass testing for purity. This is an added safety measure and a confirmation of quality.
