Vitamins That Are Made in China vs the USA, What is the Difference and Why Are They So Much Cheaper from China? By: LifeSource Vitamins & Bruce Brightman

If your vitamins have been sourced and manufactured in China, they are without a doubt cheaper than US made vitamins, why is this? What is the true cost of these vitamins from China? How is it that Chinese manufactures can source their ingredients, pay their workers, cover all the production costs, ship the finished product on boat that takes six weeks to get to our shores and then price them, on average, 25% below USA made supplements? Why would you spend $28 for a product, when you could buy it for $12?

Efficacy is the answer.
Efficacy: is the power to produce a desired effect or intended result. You can buy the cheapest vitamins on the market, but if they do not work, the money is wasted, your health may be at risk and you can most definitely suffer from taking these Chinese made vitamins. This is not a scare tactic, simply information as to why we at LifeSource Vitamins would never buy any ingredients from China to make our vitamins. With regard to anything you put in your body, you get what you pay for. Price should not be the determining factor, vitamins that work on a cellular level should be or don’t waste your money!

Over half of all American adults are taking vitamins and supplements. Most if not all are not aware they are ingesting vitamins made in China, or made using ingredients from China.

The top vitamin exporting province, Zhejiang, has an alarming level of soil pollution from heavy metals. (Cadmium, Nickel, Arsenic, Copper, Mercury and Lead)

Chinas Irrigation water is a complete nightmare: Over half of the country’s major water bodies are polluted, as are 86 percent of city water bodies. Pollution is largely caused by the country’s numerous factories, which very rarely have equipment for treating this pollution. Seventy to 80 percent of the country’s industrial waste is directly emitted into rivers each and every day.

While supplements are not regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration/Vitamins) , Vitamins manufactured in the USA must comply with FDA - GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) to receive their validating stamp that appears on the label. FDA representatives make unannounced visits to manufacturing plants such as ours ( LifeSource Vitamins ), to tour facilities, inspect for cleanliness standards, label verification, and source ingredient documentation.

American made stands for Quality: Quality Control, Quality Assurance, Reviewed and Tested products.

USA manufactured vitamins provide:

· Safety & Effectiveness without recalls, like products from China

· Validation from the FDA & GMP (CGMP – Current Good Manufacturing Practices)

· Clean ingredients that are tested and proven

· Manufactured locally, providing local jobs, helping local economies

· Vitamins that begin and end on site, from the raw ingredients to the final packaged goods for the consumer.
