BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Healthy Directions, a top source of natural health advice and doctor-formulated nutritional products, today announced that seven of the nutritional supplement formulas that it submitted for testing through ConsumerLab.com's Quality Certification Program in 2013 were certified as "Approved Quality."
The Quality Certification Program allows manufacturers and distributors in the health and nutritional supplement marketplace to have their products undergo ConsumerLab.com's rigorous quality testing and is designed to help consumers identify the highest quality products on the market. This is the sixth year in a row that Healthy Directions has submitted products to the program.
ConsumerLab's testing program is an adjunct to Healthy Directions' stringent quality standards—which include a Triple Testing Philosophy™ that exceeds industry Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and FDA requirements—that are applied to every supplement the company produces.
"Given the recent nutritional supplement backlash in the media, it's important for people to know that there are companies and brands like us that they can trust to provide superior quality products," says Healthy Directions CEO Connie Hallquist.
As part of the ConsumerLab program, each Healthy Directions product was tested for identity (does it meet recognized standards of identity and does it meet the level of quality claimed on the label), strength (does it contain the amount of ingredient claimed on the label), purity (is it free of specified contaminants) and disintegration (does it break apart properly so that it may be used by the body).
The seven Healthy Directions products (grouped by testing category) that were certified as "Approved Quality" by ConsumerLab.com include:
- Dr. Sinatra's Omega Q Plus and Dr. Whitaker's BioActive Q in the category of coenzyme Q10 – One of Healthy Directions' flagship products, Omega Q Plus is an exclusive combination of DHA-rich calamarine oil, highly absorbable Hydro Q-Sorb® coenzyme Q10, and four other heart-healthy nutrients. BioActive Q contains the ubiquinol form of coenzyme Q10, which is the type that naturally occurs in the body, making it easier for your body to absorb.
- Dr. Sinatra's Omega Q Plus with Resveratrol and Dr. Whitaker's Triveratrol Plus in the category of resveratrol – These two supplements were among 20 products that were tested for the ingredient resveratrol. Omega Q Plus with Resveratrol is a line extension to the original Omega Q Plus formula described above. Triveratrol Plus is a top-selling supplement that contains not only resveratrol but three other powerful extracts for healthy aging: curcumin, aloe vera and pterostilbene.
- Dr. Williams' Probiotic Advantage in the category of probiotics – One of Healthy Directions' customer favorites, Probiotic Advantage delivers 2 billion live bacteria throughout the digestive tract via the patented BIO-tract® delivery system, which slowly releases the probiotics along both the small and large intestines. Each Probiotic Advantage caplet provides seven extremely hardy, live probiotic strains along with prebiotics to help feed and strengthen these good bacteria.
- Dr. Whitaker's Forward Plus Daily Regimen in the category of multivitamins/multinutrients – Dr. Whitaker's flagship product, Forward Plus Daily Regimen is a high-potency daily multivitamin and mineral supplement formula.
- Dr. Whitaker's Osteo Essentials – This comprehensive bone health formula was one of four supplements containing calcium, magnesium, and vitamins D and K that were tested, and was among the three that were certified.
"ConsumerLab's findings and certified quality approval of these seven Healthy Directions products further exemplify our decades-long track record of providing highly efficacious doctor-developed formulations that are recognized for their incomparable safety and quality in the consumer nutritional supplement marketplace," says Healthy Directions Director of Quality Assurance Jack Fisher.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
