Our Quality - Renew Life Canada: The Digestive Care Company

Quality Assurance

At Renew Life, we take product quality seriously. As such, all Renew Life products undergo full testing at all levels of production to ensure potency, efficacy, and safety. Our testing procedures are regulated by Health Canada (NHPD) and all products are made in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

Raw Material Testing

The following tests are run on all raw materials before they are accepted into production.

Potency: This testing ensures that the raw material meets the potency requirements as outlined in our finished product specification.

Identification: This testing ensures that the raw material that is received is exactly what is indicated and ordered.

Yeast and Mold: This test ensures that yeast and mold are not present.

Total Aerobic Count: This test determines that bacteria levels in the raw material are below the allowable limits.

E-Coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus: This test determines that these three items are not detectable in raw material.

Heavy Metals: This testing ensures that heavy metals (mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and lead) are not present in quantities that are above the acceptable range.

Once the raw material has passed the necessary tests, it is released by the Quality Control department for use in production.

The Production Department has its own quality control requirements. Finished products are tested rigorously throughout the production process. These tests ensure that the production run is consistent from start to finish.

Finished Product Testing

Once production is complete, the Quality Control Department takes samples of product from each lot number and sends them to a third party laboratory for final confirmatory testing. Finished products are tested for:

Potency: The same methods are used as in raw material testing; only now, the finished product may require multiple potency tests for each ingredient, depending on the formulation.

Identification: In the finished product, certain ingredient markers are used to ensure that potency has been met.

Weight Variation: Using a representative sample of the finished product, the weights are recorded and the average is obtained. The weight variation from the average must match the finished product specification (which is approved by Health Canada).

Disintegration: This test determines how long it will take for a tablet or capsule to disintegrate once swallowed. This must match the limits as per our finished product specification.

Yeast and Mold: This test ensures that yeast and mold are not present in the final product.

Total Aerobic Count: This test determines that bacteria levels in the final product are below the allowable limits.

E-Coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus: This test determines that these three items are not detectable in the finished product.

Heavy Metals: This testing ensures that heavy metals (mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and lead) are not present in quantities that are above the acceptable range.

Pesticides: This test ensures that there are no detectable pesticide residues present in the finished product.

We do all this testing to ensure that we can offer the best possible products to our customers.
