YES, Certified Gluten-Free.
If you’re one of the millions of Americans that follow a gluten-free diet, or one of the 2 million having gluten-free be a requirement due to celiac disease, Country Life wants you to know we recognize that being gluten-free is an important issue to many of you. To show that we share your beliefs and concerns, we’ve ensured 100% of our products are gluten-free, certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), a program of the Gluten Intolerance Group. In fact, we are the first supplement company in the United States to be certified as 100% gluten-free. Our entire manufacturing facility is also certified gluten-free. Our products contain no more than 10 parts per million of gluten, which is currently half of the 20 ppm standard the FDA requires for a product to be labeled gluten-free. As most processed gluten-free products or foods are not enriched or fortified with vitamins and minerals, your gluten-free diet may be low in important nutrients. We at Country Life recommend these top 5 gluten-free supplements for any gluten-free lifestyle.
YES, Certified Vegan/Vegetarian.
While 7 million Americans have made the choice to adhere to a vegetarian diet, over 22 million more of you have implemented vegetarian practices into their diet as well. We want to make it easier for you to adhere to your vegan and vegetarian practices, not just in the foods you eat, but also in the supplements you choose. We are proud to offer over 200 vegan products and nearly 400 vegetarian products. All of our vegan and vegetarian products are certified by the American Vegetarian Association. These products are marked “YES Vegan” or “YES Vegetarian” on the side of our labels.
YES, USDA Certified Organic Manufacturer.
Country Life is a proud supporter of the organic movement and has been certified as an organic manufacturer by the US Department of Agriculture. Look for the USDA logo and you’ll see several product lines within the Country Life family showcase our passion for all things organic, from our Realfood Organics® Aloes to our BioChem® organic whey protein.
We at Country Life are committed to providing products that are non-GMO (not genetically modified). Within each category, we already have several non-GMO options. These products are marked “NO GMOs” on the side of our labels. For the rest of our line, we are currently undergoing the process of reviewing every product we offer. Due to the fact we offer you over 600 products, with each containing as many as 30 ingredients to check, this intensive and comprehensive review is a very large undertaking. We are looking to complete our review within the next several years. Additionally, Country Life has been working with the Non-GMO Project for several years to define the standards for supplements industry, and you will find the butterfly logo on the reviewed and approved products.
YES, Certified Kosher.
Another of Country Life’s commitments is to those who live kosher. If you’re one of 10 million Americans who live kosher, you’ll recognize the iconic Kosher Symbol from KOF-K, an internationally recognized kosher supervisory network, on many of our products. These products are marked “YES Kosher Parve” or "YES Kosher Dairy" on the side of our labels.
YES, Certified Good Manufacturing Practices.
Country Life is not just a name placed on someone else’s products. We manufacture 97% of our products and are happy to say that our manufacturing and production facility in Hauppauge, New York, is a NSF-GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) registered facility—one of the largest supplement companies certified by NSF. Even when we have to use a contractor to craft a highly specialized product for use, we conduct a full investigation of their manufacturing facilities to ensure they continue Country Life’s high quality standards. All of our suppliers are also required to have high standards of GMP which are verified by frequent audits by our internal specialized teams. This means that when you choose any of the over 600 products we offer, you can feel confident that tight quality controls are in place so you get the product value you deserve. You have our word and the word of our certifiers that we are all we say we are. Experience our quality today and every day.
YES, Sustainable Manufacturing.
We at Country Life are committed to helping people and the earth we all live on. We use 100% recycled paperboard for all our packaging boxes, and 100% recycled paper for our promotional materials certified by the FSC, an independent, nonprofit organization that sets the standards for environmental protection. Country Life uses electricity from the national power grid, just like you do, but we purchase green power in the form of renewable energy credits (RECs) to offset our electricity use and reduce our carbon emissions. Our purchase of 100% wind power RECs (from Renewable Choice Energy) provides financial assistance to wind farms and helps to grow domestic green power production.
