1. Manufacturing, Ingredients, Capsules, and Labels
Where are Dr. Morris supplements manufactured?
Our formulas are manufactured at our 136,000–square–foot headquarters and manufacturing facility in Orlando, FL. We are currently Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) registered by the Natural Products Association (NPA) and the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF International).
Where do you source your ingredients?
That is completely dependent on what supplier has the best material. It is one of our highest priorities to search out the best raw materials based on quality, purity, and research.
Is everything in the capsule listed on the label?
Yes. Everything listed on the label is present in the capsule, tablet, powder, or liquid. What you see is exactly what you get.
Are Dr. Morris supplements 3rd Party Tested?
Dr. Morris Supplements conducts testing on both raw materials and finished products at a variety of third-party labs. Testing that's typically outsourced to our third party labs includes label claim verification (most vitamins, amino acids, most botanical extract constituents, and macronutrients), contaminant analysis (residual solvents, pesticides, aflatoxins, allergens), botanical identification, and dissolution for timed-release tablets.
Do Your products contain common allergens?
Our formulas do not contain wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, or dairy products. None of our formulas contain artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives.
Do your formulas contain fillers?
There are a few instances in which fillers are used. When they are, we use vegetable-based cellulose to fill a capsule that may have a very small amount of active ingredients.
What are your capsules made of?
We only use vegetable capsules. They are made from hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, a cellulose compound derived from wood pulp.
Do you use standardized herbal extracts?
We strive to provide the highest quality herbs and the best value. When they are available in the marketplace, and especially when they are deemed critical to the efficacy of a formula, we use standardized herbal extracts.
Have your bovine-sourced products been tested for mad cow disease?
Yes, we have been assured that our bovine-sourced formulas are very safe and do not pose any risk for mad cow disease.
3. Formula Use
Should I take my supplements with meals?
If there is a clear, science-based reason to take your supplement away from a meal, this will be indicated on the formula label directions or in the formula Doctor's Reference Sheet (DRS). If there is any remaining question, consult your healthcare practitioner.
Can I take your formulas if I am pregnant or lactating?
Many dietary ingredients have not been tested during pregnancy or lactation. It is always best to check the label cautions and consult your healthcare practitioner before using a dietary supplement of any kind while pregnant or lactating.
Are there any known drug-nutrient interactions with any of the products?
Indeed, there are known and possibly unknown interactions between some prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications and some dietary supplements. The combination may enhance the drug's action and therefore increase risk of toxicity, or it can reduce the drug's action and therefore decrease its benefit. A drug can also deplete certain nutrients, increasing the need for supplementation. The information supplied on our labels regarding specific interactions is limited. Our formulas are designed to be used only under medical supervision, so it is very important to consult with your healthcare practitioner or pharmacist before combining prescription or OTC medications with any Dr. Morris supplements formula.
