CHOOSING THE BOTANICAL

CHOOSING THE BOTANICAL
WE FIND THE RIGHT BOTANICAL
WITH DNA AND PHYTONUTRIENTS FINGERPRINTING
Even if it is the same botanical, the phytonutrients vary from species. Therefore, we identify the right botanical with DNA analysis and chromatography. This is what we called “phytonutrients fingerprinting”.

Phytonutrients fingerprinting
Phytonutrients fingerprinted botanicals
in our functional target library lead us to the best and safest ingredients.
Collected fingerprints will be stored in our functional target library.
Research scientists will choose the best and safest ingredients for appropriate products.
Functional Target Library (FTL)
Over 1,300 phytonutrients fingerprinted botanicals
Created base on the kind and amount of the phytonutrients and include efficacy and safety information.
Note: Functional Target Library is also used for Artistry and G&H products. There are around 1,300 phytonutrients fingerprinted botanicals in the library (as of August 2018).
SELECTING THE SEED
WE SEARCH FOR THE BEST
KIND OF SEEDS FOR OUR PHYTONUTRIENTS
We have set up a seed research facility
to identify which kinds of seeds are rich in phytonutrients.
Researching Seed Kind

These two factors will
bring the most effective kinds

CHOOSING THE FARM
WE EXPLOIT FARMS THAT
ARE SUITABLE FOR GROWING OUR INGREDIENTS
We grow our plants at 4 organic farms
and NutriCert™ farms.
4 Organic Farms
Trout Lake West
(Washington, U.S.)
Trout Lake East
(Washington, U.S.)
Ubajara
(State of Ceará, Brazil)
Rancho El Petacal Farm
(Jalisco, Mexico)
Note: Major ingredients are grown at the above 4 organic farms.
Our phytonutrients are from
the best organic farms around the world
Total area of farms that is
owned by Nutrilite™ is
around2,400hectare
(around 6,000 acres)

Note: According to British Journal of Nutrition (2014), 112, 794‒811; this is a statistical average value obtained after a thorough review of 343 research theories on the nutritional value of organic and inorganic crops. The data is not taken from actual crops but from public source of information. The research findings did not include data conducted with Nutrilite™ crops.
Natural pests control without
the use of synthetic chemical pesticides
Use of chamomile and garlic, etc.
Natural Agrochemicals
Predation of pests by ladybugs, etc.
Achieve Pest Control
Predation by falcons and owls, etc.
Achieving Hazardous Biological Control
We use earthworm compost to revitalize the soil
Feeding earthworms* in the soil with the original plant concentrate
Earthworm dung is rich in organic substances which can revitalize the soil
The fertile soil is screened to make a liquid fertilizer for spraying on the soil
Note: Concentrate cannot be used in the product or without any leftover.
To ensure the soil is rich in nutrients
Weeding carefully
To prevent weeds from absorbing plant nutrients
Check every hour after sprouting to remove weeds
Careful attention during germination to ensure the best nutrition level of the plant
Install GPS tractor to improve weeding efficiency
Precise control with satellite positioning
* Adopting advanced waste control system to greatly reduce exhaust emissions
Removes 99% of weeds without the use of herbicides
HARVESTING
WHEN OUR PLANTS ARE AT THEIR HIGHEST NUTRITIONAL VALUE,
WE ARE THERE, READY TO HARVEST
Take acerola cherry as an example,
when the fruit is in green, it achieves to the highest amount of nutritional value.
Comparison of Nutritional Value in the Harvest Season
Red, after maturity
Green, before maturity
Vitamin C: mg (per 100ml of fruit juice) / polyphenol: gallic acid equivalent (per 100g of fresh fruit)
Note: According to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry 2012, published by Luciana De Siqueira Oliveira, Carlos Farley Herbster Moura, Edy Sousa De Brito, Rosa Virginia Soares Mamede, and Maria Raquel Alcantara Miranda regarding Antioxidant Metabolism during Fruit Development of Different Acerola (Malpighia emarginata D.C) Clones)
We move plants from field to on-site dryers immediately
to ensure the highest nutrient levels
Drying within 20 minutes after harvesting,
from the moment the fruit is harvested, the nutritional value starts to lose.
Dryer
Note: Nutrilite™'s own organic farms and Nutricert™ farms use dryers to dehydrate and dry fresh fruits, herbs, plants and stems, and other less stable plant materials.
EXTRACTING
EXCLUSIVE EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGY TO EXTRACT THE HUSKS AND SEEDS WITH THE HIGHEST PHYTONUTRIENTS CONTENT,
RETAINING THE BEST NUTRIENTS OF THE CROPS
Note: It is not possible under all circumstances to concentrate the entire plant, including the husks and seeds. We will only identify and use the best parts with the highest nutritional value.
Exclusive extraction technology to extract phytonutrients
1
Dehydrate and dry the crop
2
Grind
3
Extract the best parts and separate them from fiber
4
Make concentrates
5
Remove water to make concentrates
Spray Drying
Spray the concentrate on a hot metal plate to remove water instantly
Refractive Window Drying*
Retain nutrients that will be lost by heat
New technology
Pour the concentrate on a metal plate
using hot water circulation
Remove water sequentially
MANUFACTURING
QUALITY ASSURANCE IS CRITICAL
BEFORE THE PRODUCT IS COMPLETED
In terms of quality control, we use GMP* standards to ensure the integrity of nutrients and avoid product differences, pollution and foreign bodies. Nutrilite™ complies with the cGMP* standards required by the United States and implements a consistent production process and quality control.
* refers to "Good Manufacturing Practice": American Standard, preceded by the letter "c", which represents the test method, etc., meets the latest requirements.
