Back to Basics: Vitamins from Foods, Not Chemicals
Orgenetics®, Inc. was founded in 2007 by Dr. Jit Maheshvari, (who has a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry), on the principle that not all vitamins are equal. Instead, he introduced a much healthier option to the industry and the world: 100% USDA Certified Organic vitamins and minerals from fruits, vegetables, and botanicals.
This goal was made possible thanks to a new patent pending water extraction process invented by Orgenetics® and its partners. It gave the company the ability to extract a concentrated form of all-natural and 100% organic vitamins from various fruits and vegetables along with existing co-nutrients of the same botanicals – similar to what you consume from food.
Only water is used during this extraction process – there’s no solvents excipients or carriers. Absolutely no synthetics or additives are used – and nothing is fermented.
Since its founding, Orgenetics® has received many accolades and awards for continuing to innovate through a dedicated research program and maintaining an exceptionally high quality for organic ingredients.
And today, Orgenetics® offers a fully vertically integrated organic solution, from organic farm to ingredient.
NatureCity® is proud to partner with Orgenetics® to offer plant based vitamin C called Orgen-C® which is made from USDA certified organic amla.
Along with the vitamin C, Orgen-C® naturally provides co-nutrients and co-factors like non-citrus bioflavonoids and polyphenols that allow for faster and easier absorption into the body, with minimal to no stomach irritation.
Orgen-C® is 50% organic natural vitamin C, and the remaining 50% is the co-factors and co-nutrients of the same Amla extract, which support the stability and activity of the organic vitamin C.
The Orgen-C® in TrueC™ is grown on a USDA certified organic 400 acre farm in India.
This farm does things the old fashioned way. You won’t find any chemical pesticides, fertilizers or GMOs here.
Instead of harmful chemicals, the farmers use methods like composting, crop rotation and inter-planting to control weeds and pests, replenish the soil and sustain the health of the environment.
This farm meets or exceeds all of the organic farming standards set by both the USDA National Organic Program and the European Union Organic Program. It is also certified Kosher.
What’s more, Orgenetics® adopted a cGMP standard far ahead of the guidelines proposed to the industry by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). In fact, Orgenetics® has been asked to be part of creating analytical methods for the Indian Herbal Pharmacopeia by the Indian Food and Drug Administration.
To support quality control (QC), the company has built an in-house laboratory, which is furnished with state of the art equipment.
QC managers assure that quality standards are met at various steps of the manufacturing process. Prior to an ingredient being released, final checks using the following tests are performed:
- Assay of standard by HPLC, HPTLC and/or GC.
- Physical parameters like color, taste, identification, particle size, solubility, etc.
- Impurities check for heavy metals, organic volatile impurities, fertilizer and pesticides, organic solvents and related substances.
- Microbiological counts for total plates, E. coli, S. aureus, P. aseudomonas, yeast and molds.
This commitment to quality and innovation makes Orgenetics® the perfect partner for TrueC™. Instead of man-made vitamin C created in some lab, you get pure, organic whole food vitamin C with co-factor nutrients for optimized health.
