Nutritional formulations often include herbal and botanical ingredients. These ingredients in particular unfortunately can fall victim to adulteration due to supply chain pressures, failed crops, or increased harvesting & manufacturing costs. Gemini takes extensive measures to ensure every ingredient we use in manufacturing is authentic and has been thoroughly tested. Leveraging over 400 official botanical standards we test these natural ingredients using our HPTLC equipment to verify the correct plant, plant species, and plant part(s) are received + match the information on the supplier COA. Standardized herbal extracts will also undergo either HPLC or UPLC testing to verify the potency of specific phytochemicals.
