Did you know Amway can trace more than 90 percent of the functional plant-based ingredients used in our Nutrilite dietary supplements all the way back to their farm source?
That’s important, because while many of the plant-based ingredients are grown on our organic farms, we are unable to grow all of them ourselves. Some require special region-specific growing conditions, like the glacial fjords off the coast of Iceland that produce the naturally calcified seaweed used in the Nutrilite Cal Mag D Plus.
Ingredients like these are wildcrafted – that is, they are harvested from a defined natural or wild area that is not actively cultivated. Amway uses strict guidelines to help ensure that ingredients used by Nutrilite are harvested using sustainable practices that do not diminish the existence or productivity of the wild botanical.
In fact, Amway ensures that every botanical ingredient supplier meets our requirements for sustainable farming practices that benefit the environment and positively affect people. They are also smart business practices that provide assurance of quality control. These requirements go back to the principles of Nutrilite founder Carl Rehnborg – and all suppliers must rigorously document their compliance.
