FAQ

Our products are not certified organic.

We do third party testing on all our products to ensure the absence of heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, etc.

Any product with a “Tested Allergen Free” symbol has been tested for: almond, Brazil nut, buckwheat, cashew, celery, coconut, crustacean, eggs, gluten, hazelnut, lupin, macadamia, mustard, peanut, pecan, pistachio, sesame seed, soy, and sulfite. We don’t test for corn or walnuts.

 

We test according to the European food allergen panel, which is the most extensive allergen panel available.

None of our products contain any added sugar.

Ethanol is essential in liposomal stability and is present in all of our products in quantities less than 20%. The ethanol is fermented, then distilled and tested allergen free. The ethanol used in our products is non-GMO and derived from cane sugar and/or corn.

Expiration dates range from 12 to 24 months from date of manufacture. Thank you for your patience while we are updating our labels to include this information. Please phone our Customer Experience team for specific product dates.

We maintain the integrity of all our products, however, sometimes the color of one product can change based on where we source our ingredients. The quality stays the same.

 

All of the dosing information for our products is on the bottles or in the product information sheets listed on our website. We are not a clinic and cannot provide medical advice. Please contact your practitioner if you have more in-depth dosing questions.

 

Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. Proposition 65 requires the state to maintain and update a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.

 

The current FDA ruling is that heavy metals must be less than 10ppm/day for food and dietary supplements. Our Ultra Binder is routinely testing below 5ppm.

 

Ultra Binder contains clay and charcoal as active ingredients, which are known to contain naturally occurring chemicals that can be dangerous in high amounts. Since Prop 65 has been enacted, we are required by law to make our customers aware of the presence of potentially harmful elements in this product.

 

While clay and charcoal do naturally contain metals from the Earth, each batch of our product is tested for heavy metals by a third party lab before releasing for sale. We test for arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and chromium, and are well within limitations. UltraBinder results for lead are <10ppm (parts per million) and the current FDA limit is <10 ppm for food and dietary supplements.

 

We’ve found that most products remain stable for 30-60 days from opening. 30 days pertains to heat sensitive products (Vitamin C, Vitamin CRLA, Glutathione, CoQ10), which are sensitive to breakdown from oxygen. As oxygen degrades a liposome, absorption tends to slow deeming the product less effective than its label claim. Our room-temperature safe products are recommended for use within 60 days for the same reason. These liposomes tend to be a bit more durable and aren’t broken down as quickly/easily as that of heat sensitive compounds.

 

Liposomal quality and stability is visible and quite apparent. A degraded, spoiled liposomal product will appear thick, cloudy, and inconsistent in liquidity. Additionally, a damaged liposomal product may appear separated, similar to oil and vinegar separation.

Original Quinton and QuintEssential are the same product, in different packaging. We’ve found that not everyone likes to break the glass ampoule that Quinton comes in, so QuintEssential has a convenient pull-tab foil closure. The contents are the same.

 

Up to 10 ppm. A video of how our hydrogen is tested can be found here.

It is very important to note that everyone reacts to detoxing differently. Occasionally users report sulfurous flatulence that does not pass. It is typical to be gassy for a few days and then stabilize. Others have to use a low dose but are not able to titrate up the doses over time. These difficult cases usually have gallbladder blockages or kidney disorders.

 

The protocols were designed through years of working with multiple practitioners and patients and their response to both the initial and follow-up mercury testing plus the patients’ reported response to the detox. That is the only way protocols like this can be developed.

 

Unfortunately, as manufacturers of the products we do not have the medical qualifications to answer that question. Please consult with a practitioner about this concern before consuming our products.

Our tri-test is the only mercury speciation test that can differentiate methyl and inorganic mercury levels, as well as measure extraction through blood, hair, and urine.

 

The BMP is a basic blood test that measures levels of nutrient elements as well potentially toxic elements. A list of nutrients we test for can be found here.

 

The Blood Metals Panel tests for nutrient elements Calcium, Copper, Lithium, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium, Zinc, and potentially toxic elements Antimony, Arsenic, Cadmium, Cobalt, Lead, Mercury, Silver, Strontium.

 

These heavy metals were previously included in test results, however it was determined that levels in blood are unreliable and could be misleading and therefore were removed.

 

The Mercury Tri-Test is specific to mercury, so we recommend this test for individuals who are aware or suspicious of past mercury exposure and want to understand their total body burden of mercury along with their ability to excrete it. The Blood Metals Panel is more appropriate for those who would like an overview of a broad range of of potentially toxic and nutrient elements to show elevated exposure to toxic metals or imbalances of nutrient elements in blood.

 

Absolutely. We can accept hair from anywhere on the body, as long as it has not been permed.

 

We request 200-300 strands of hair, which is equal in thickness to a pencil lead.

 

Yes, the hair sample has not been compromised.

 

No. Chemicals used on permed hair can compromise the sample and render the results inaccurate.

 

It does not matter if the hair is clean or dirty.

 

Unfortunately, no, you cannot. Due to New York State Department of Health regulations, our tests are not available without a doctor’s order.
