do choose to undergo costly testing. Like all dietary supplements, the majority of which do not undergo third-party testing, they are regulated by DSHEA, which defines and reg- ulates labeling and claims of benefits related to classic nutrient-deficiency diseases.
Private Quality Control Xymogen is strictly a physician’s line of nutraceuticals, explains Cheryl Burdette, a doctor of naturopathy and director of clinical research and outreach for the company. “In our manufacturing process, to avoid contam- ination and validate ingredients, every batch is third-party assayed by an independent laboratory, whereas some companies only do this for every fiſth or 20th lot. Xymogen’s val- idation extends to packaging and controlling the level of humidity because it affects how ingredients oxidize,” says Burdette. Gary Kracoff, a registered pharmacist
and naturopathic doctor at Johnson Com- pounding & Wellness, in Waltham, Massa- chusetts, researches the nutraceuticals that he carries and recommends for his clients. “I like professional-grade nutraceuticals
because their formulas are researched and science-based. Tey are excellent products for specific purposes. Individuals that take the medical foods come to appreci- ate their disease-modifying therapeutic results. While pricier, they include healthier sources of carbohydrates and fats, as well as
natural, rather than synthetic nutrients to provide what the body needs to return to a state of balance,” says Kracoff.
