Herbal Supplement Manufacturing
Custom Herbal Supplement Manufacturer
Perhaps more than any other category of dietary supplements, herbal products are all over the board regarding quality, and having the correct form of the correct herb for the correct purpose is vital. Despite the plethora of studies on herbs, it’s not unusual to see an herbal product that does not use the appropriate extract, or the proper dose needed to support claims. Consequently, it is imperative for you to choose an experienced herbal supplement manufacturing company to help ensure you’re getting the right form of the right herb at the right dose.
Vitaquest International understands the challenges associated with creating and bringing an herbal supplement product to market, which is why thousands of companies have trusted us as their contract supplement manufacturer since 1977. Whether you’re expanding an existing product line or launching a new one, Vitaquest’s custom herbal supplement manufacturing solutions can help you deliver high-quality products to your customers.

Herbal Supplement Delivery Formats
With custom formulation, we can also help you choose the delivery format best suited for your herbal supplements – depending on the product composition and your specific needs. The popular herbal supplement delivery formats we offer are:
The Herbal Ingredients We Work With
We work with a global network of suppliers and ingredient supply partners to maintain a well-stocked inventory of high-quality botanicals or plant-based ingredients. These include herbal extracts, many of which are standardized to the right marker/active compounds shown in research to be effective for the health/wellness purpose intended. Our focus on incorporating the latest evidence with cutting-edge manufacturing processes allows for speedy development and efficient production of superior herbal supplement products.
Here is a partial list sf the common herbal ingredients we work with include:
- Milk thistle
- Mushrooms (all popular species)
- Aloe vera
- Black cohosh
- Ginkgo biloba
- Saw palmetto
- St. John’s wort
Herbal ingredients are available in multiple forms. First, they are available by plant part:
- Dried and powdered
- Freeze-dried and powdered
- Water or ethanol extract (4:1, 10:1, etc.) as a liquid or dried powder
- Extract standardized to an active/marker compound
- Extract treated with liposomal or other technology to improve bioavailability
Third, any of these forms may be provided in different potencies per capsule or other dosage form.
The question as to which of all these options are the correct ones differs depending upon the herb in question. Essentially, it depends upon the research. Let’s say that a study shows that 250 mg of a turmeric extract standardized for its curcuminoid content and provided with a specific delivery system was found to be effective for relieving discomfort associated with overexercising. In this case, the use of an herbal material meeting these same criteria is the correct option if you want your product to be able to make similar claims based upon the research. In other cases, any of the other options may be correct.
Vitaquest provides a broad range of quality herbal ingredients available in different forms and preparation methods. We can help assure that you’re getting the correct herbal ingredient needed to support claims and maximize efficacy.
