How is the safety of this product ensured? Is this product tested for safety and purity by a third party?
I have read in a case study from The Annals of Pharmacotherapy that chromium picolinate might implicated with acute kidney injury. What is Dr. Murad's approach to this?
Murad has a 2 layer process to maintain safety and efficacy.
Internally, we maintain the highest quality control standards and will not conduct business with Supplement or Topical Product Manufacturers until they have been thoroughly reviewed. The point being extreme regulations are in place to ensure our end product is proven safe, free from contaminants, and certified with a Certificate of Analysis for each and every batch.
2. The Manufacturer
Our Supplement manufacturers are all Domestic and follow Good Manufacturing Practice or GMP - a term that is recognized worldwide for the control and management of manufacturing and quality control testing of foods, pharmaceutical products and medical devices. If safe processing, handling, and shipping measures are not met, the manufacturer will not purchase raw ingredients from a vendor. The manufactures also rigorously test each raw ingredient before proceeding with formulation. As an ingredient arrives, it is analyzed for contamination, impurity, heavy metals, and % active. If any metric is out of spec the raw ingredient is rejected.
