Integrative Therapeutics Inc. (ITI) is the nations' leading manufacturer and distributor of high quality nutritional supplements to health care practitioners and their patients.

For more than 30 years, ITI products have been purchased and used by medical professionals and researchers, in the United States and around the world. More than 50,000 medical professionals recommend ITI products to their patients, a good indicator of trust, quality and value.

ITI's top 50 products have been the subject of more than 2,500 independent, peer-reviewed-published clinical trials and studies. ITI products have been extensively used in research supported by major medical university research centers, hospital research centers, and government agencies, including the NIH and Veteran's Administration.

ITI manufactures its products in an FDA-registered drug facility, meeting and exceeding the standards established for drug manufacturing. Your patients will benefit from exactly the same dietary supplement systems used in clinical trials proving health benefits.

ITI is one of only a select few dietary supplement manufactuerers that are in full compliance with GMPs that have already been established for drug manufacturing facilities. Currently these standards are much more complex and rigorous than those expected for dietary supplement manufacturers.

ITI conducts more than 35,000 tests on its products every year. The laboratory staff is extremely knowledgeable regarding analytical methodology for botanicals and other nutrients. They have published research papers in respected peer-reviewed journals.

ITI monitors and test ingredients at various points during the manufacturing process. Before any raw material is processed, it must pass through a "quarantine" period. As part of this inspection process, ITI scientists use a variety of test methods, including High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AA), and other chromatographic techniques, along with microbiological analysis, to ensure the purity of every ingredient. Lab analysis confims ITI is using the correct plant and getting the right quality and quantity of chemical constituents. These analyses makes certain that bacteria have not contaminated the raw materials. Raw materials are also examined for contamination with pesticides or other toxins.
Process validation studies ensure that the written process approved for each product performs consistently from batch to batch. Cleaning validation studies ensure that no residues from products, harmful microbes, or cleaning/sanitizing products remain on the equipment. ITI's cleaning validation program was modeled after the standards maintained in drug manufacturing facilities.

ITI products include ingredients derived from a variety of extraction processes, including hot water extraction, alcohol extraction and super critical CO2 extraction, to name a few. We at no time accept any raw material extracted with solvents that have shown adverse health effects.
