- They list all ingredients on the label
- They have always quoted elemental mineral levels
- They always describe nutrient levels correctly e.g. Glucosamine, B Vitamins and Lutein
- When they say Pharmaceutical GMP - it is true!
- They do not claim irrelevant nutrients on their labels
- They do not sell endangered herbs collected in the wild
- Over the years, Lamberts has invested tens of thousands of pounds on clinical research, including studies on: Magnesium bioavailability, Iron bioavailability, the use of oral magnesium [MagAsorb] for the treatment of asthma and the use of anthocyanadins [Colladeen] for oedema.
They strongly feel that there are two areas of the food supplement industry where marketing hype is often allowed to take precedence over the science of nutrition; namely the common practice of including ingredients in formulas at levels that are, in terms of nutrition, completely irrelevant. And secondly, not choosing the most relevant form of the nutrient.
Quality needs to extend to the information on the label too and Lamberts has pioneered the accurate labelling of dietary supplements. Lamberts takes considerable care to use the correct terms for all the ingredients used in their products and they do not hesitate to declare everything that is used. What they say on the label is a honest representation of what is in the product. To be sure that their tablets or capsules contain the active ingredients specified, they know that certain inactive ingredients need to be used. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to produce food supplements without using some inactive ingredients and products whose labels do not show any are in their opinion, either inaccurately made or inaccurately labelled.
When you buy from Lamberts you can be confident that they are of the best quality, as all of their products are manufactured and tested in the UK. Good manufacturing practice (GMP) is this classification for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to strict quality standards. It covers all aspects of pharmaceutical production; from the raw materials, premises and equipment, right through to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Without GMP it is impossible to be sure that every batch of supplements is of the same high quality as the original and there becomes the risk of unexpected contamination, incorrect labels on pots and insufficient or too much ingredients. This is why they insist that all Lamberts products are produced in premises that operate to these stringent pharmaceutical standards of GMP. The Department of Health also approves the premises they use.
They ensure their tablets and capsules are made, tested and packed in the UK because their 30 years of experience has taught them that this is the best way to ensure consistent high quality. Some other companies, buy bulk tablets from China or India and just pack them in the UK. These can be legitimately described as made in the UK, so watch out.
