Thanks to a focus on provenance, sustainability and good manufacturing process, Healthspan creates high-quality products that its customers can rely on.
We find our source...
It all starts at the source. Take turmeric, a nutrient that appears in a number of our joint health products. We source turmeric from India, where our supplier tracks down the highest quality extracts from the southern Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. The extract produced has a guaranteed minimum of 95% curcuminoids - the active ingredient. This is the kind of attention to detail that builds trust between Healthspan and its customers.
...we look at sustainability...
Healthspan products come from sustainable sources. Where appropriate, they have independent accreditation from organisations such as Friend of the Sea and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), showing the company adheres to the strongest standards for sustainability in aquaculture. We believe good nutrition is possible without compromising the future of our planet, so you'll see the Friend of the Sea and MSC logos on our omega, krill and cod liver oil products.
...we carefully create.
By following a quality assurance program based on the international standards of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), we prevent problems occurring during manufacturing that could cause safety or quality problems in the finished product. The program includes supplier approvals and external accreditations, as well as continuous product improvement. Finally, a product testing and release regime ensures the products we create are worthy of our customers.
Where do some of Healthspan's top products come from?
Our turmeric comes from India, where a supplier buys the root from various locations across the country. The Andhra Pradesh region produces 40% of India's total turmeric.
Cod liver oil
Sustainably sourced from the crisp waters off Greenland, our cod liver oil has been granted 'Friend of the Sea' certification, meaning that the fish are ethically and sustainably sourced to protect the marine habitat.
Origin: The Pacific
Our omega-3 oil is sustainably sourced from the waters of the South Pacific Ocean. A Friend of the Sea logo means that the marine habits where we source fish are protected from unsustainable practices.
Healthspan's CBD is sourced from Slovakia or Latvia, from the hemp plant: the non-marijuana strain of cannabis. Hemp only contains tiny traces of an ingredient known as THC (which causes a 'high'), and not enough to have a psychoactive effect.
The lutein and zeaxanthin used in Healthspan's Retinex products is from a natural source of marigold flowers, grown in the Karnataka region in South West India. The marigolds are grown by a cooperative group of farmers according to Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP).
Our plant sterols supplements are made from non-genetically-modified soy beans from Brazil.
