Why are trademark names displayed on Bright Nutrition product labels for some ingredients?

These methods generally increase the product’s quality and value to consumers. Trademarked ingredients also tend to have a higher degree of scientific backing than non-trademarked ingredients, since the trademark owners often perform additional standardization and frequently submit their material for use in scientific studies.  Consumers may contact the trademarked ingredient manufacturers for more information.

Where do you obtain the gelatin used in your hard gelatin caps?
It is obtained by the processing of collagen derived from the skin, white connective tissues and bones of beef and pork. Softgel capsules are typically derived from beef gelatin, and Bright Nutrition also offers some products in Vcaps made from plant cellulose or polysaccharides.

What are GMOs?
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. Also referred to as GE (genetically-engineered), genetic modification utilizes gene-splicing to overcome natural laws. Genes from different species are combined to create agricultural products that are more resistant to certain exogenous factors such as herbicides, fungus and pests, or that have other reputed benefits over their natural counterparts. While genetic engineering promises higher crop yields, more research is needed to gauge the true long term impact of these types of products. Because non-GMO ingredients are more natural, we’ll continue to prefer non-GMO ingredients in our products

What is Bright Nutrition’s position on GMOs?
Since 2003 Bright Nutrition has been committed to providing natural products of the highest quality. We firmly believe that natural products are better than synthetic products, which is why we’ve always sought to use organic and non-GMO ingredients whenever possible. These ingredients are produced using methods that preserve their natural identity and integrity, which we feel better supports our mission of empowering people to lead healthier lives. Bright Nutrition is working with its suppliers to obtain more non-GMO ingredients. We are committed to offering as many non-GMO products as possible.

What is the “Best By” date that is printed on all Bright Nutrition’s dietary supplements?
The Best By date refers to the date recommended that you use the product by for best physical and/or sensory quality. It is not an expiration date, but rather the date by which Bright Nutrition recommends consumption.

How should I best store my products?
Always refer to the product label first for any special storage conditions. Generally speaking, dietary supplements are foods and should be stored like foods. Cool, dry conditions are best; and refrigeration can extend product life. Hot and/or humid conditions, such as those found in bathrooms and kitchens, may shorten product life.
