How does TA Sciences assure the quality of its products?
Quality and purity are assured through a series of analytical tests. Here is the process from the beginning to the end of the supply chain.
TA Sciences harvests high-potency Astragalus root from specifically selected farms in China. That material is refined in their exclusive plant extraction facility, and sent out for analytical testing to ensure purity.
This refined base material is then sent to an FDA certified chemical laboratory where, through a proprietary process perfected over more than four years of research and development, the material is further extracted and purified, to yield the single molecule TA-65 at over 90% purity. TA-65 is then tested again using a proprietary, patent-protected assay process exclusive to TA Sciences, and undergoes another Quality Assurance inspection.
The Purified TA-65 is then sent to New Jersey in the USA –with an authenticated Certificate of Analysis to ensure purity, potency, and quality–to be formulated and produced into capsules by Garden State Nutritionals in their state-of-the-art facilities. The TA-65 is blended with USP (United States Pharmacopeia) grade excipients and produced according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and certified by the Natural Products Association. The GMP practices followed by Garden State are equal to the best practices in the nutritional supplements industry.
Through these and other rigorous quality programs, TA Sciences can assure our clients that what they say on the label is 100% accurate
What is the plant from which TA-65 is derived?
TA-65 is a naturally occurring molecule found in the ancient Chinese medicinal herb. Well known to most of China’s 1.3 billion people for over 1000 years, this medicinal root can be found in every traditional Chinese herbal shop. Major health benefits from this plant have long been recognized by practitioners in China, but never before has the TA-65 active ingredient been isolated and purified.
If TA-65 is a molecule coming from an ancient medicinal plant and extracts are available in any vitamin shop, why not just buy those inexpensive commercial products?
Four commonly available extract products were tested to verify how much, if any, TA-65 is present. In all four cases, the testing lab could not detect any TA-65. Their assay is accurate to one part per million.
This is not surprising because not only is the TA-65 molecule rare, but extraction processes used by Chinese processing companies normally destroy it. TA Sciences uses a proprietary production process that took years of research and over a million dollars to develop.
