The story of Swanson began in 1969, when a man with a passion for golf was looking to lessen his joint pain. He set off on a journey into the world of natural supplements and health research, nurturing a deep commitment to wellness and life-long vitality. This commitment grew into a mission to share pure and potent health products directly with others, at a great value.

50 years later, Swanson Health continues to innovate science-backed vitamins and supplements, delivering wellness solutions that help people live simply healthier together. Let’s see a couple cornerstone of Swanson’s quality standard.

Testing for Purity and Potency - All products received from the suppliers and contract manufacturers are tested for finished product label claims using an independent third-party lab.

NSF & GMP Certification – National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) is an independent, accredited organization that develops standards and tests and certifies products and systems. The NSF mark is a recognized symbol for its value in international trade around the world and is respected by regulatory agencies at the local, state and federal levels.

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are guidelines that provide a framework for developing quality systems that ensure products will meet the requirements for identity, strength, composition, quality and purity. GMPs cover issues such as employee hygiene, facility cleanliness, food safety, sanitation practices, documentation practices and much more.
