Youngevity International, Inc., a global direct marketer of nutritional and lifestyle products and also a vertically-integrated producer of gourmet coffees for the commercial, retail and direct sales channels, has announced that several of its products, including its flagship Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0, have earned certification from NSF International.
NSF International has certified the products Pollen Burst™ Plus with SOD, Chocolate and Vanilla Slender FX™ Meal Replacement Shakes, and two products that make up the core of the Youngevity signature 90 For Life nutrient philosophy, Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0 and Beyond OsteoFx™. The NSF Certification, which is recognized by regulatory agencies at the local, state, federal, and international level, demonstrates that a product complies with all standard requirements for safety, quality, and performance.
“The cornerstone of all the Youngevity products is quality, safety, and efficacy,” said Youngevity International Chief Executive Officer, Steve Wallach. “Third-party testing is critical, ensuring that our distributors and customers know they are getting the highest quality products and what we say on the label is truly contained in our products.”
NSF International, a non-profit, regulatory agency whose mission is to protect and improve global human health, has set forth strict standards and procedures for the products it certifies. From extensive product testing and material analysis to unannounced plant inspections, every aspect of a product’s development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn certification.
“The NSF Certified mark on our products adds another layer of confidence to the 40 years of Dr. Joel Wallach’s research, the 20 years of anecdotal evidence and testimonials, and the numerous academic research studies we have initiated on the safety and benefits of our products, we feel it is integral to keep providing respected support to our products,” said Steve Wallach.
Along with the NSF certification, Youngevity International has received the IFOS certification for its Ultimate EFA Plus product, ensuring the standard of fish oils is the highest in purity, potency, and freshness. Youngevity will pursue NSF and other standard certifications for many of its products, to position the Company as the highest quality source of supplements and products in the industry.
