The supplement industry can sometimes be like the Wild West – unregulated, irresponsible, and reckless. That is why I’m so thankful to have found a company like EXOS! Besides partnering with a highly respected company like Precision Nutrition, EXOS works to be part of the “good guys” in the health and supplement industry by striving to set a standard of quality and excellence.
It is only with this background that I, as someone living with IBD, feel confident taking EXOS supplements and comfortable recommending the supplements to friends and family.
EXOS is committed to providing you with safe, high-quality nutritional supplements to elevate your health and performance. When we couldn’t find this in the existing marketplace, we teamed up with the best of the best. In partnership with Thorne Research — recognized for their commitment to purity and leading-edge research and development — EXOS Performance Nutrition came to life.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED, NOTHING YOU DON’T
Have you ever wondered what’s really in your nutritional supplement? Now you don’t have to. Our products give you only what you need. No artificial sweeteners or colors, no gluten, and no unnecessary additives.
Our products are offered in powder, liquid, or capsule form. Unlike tablets, capsules don’t need binders, lubricants, coatings, or disintegrants. In support of their commitment to encapsulation purity, our partners at Thorne Research have chosen not to use magnesium or vegetable stearates, fatty acids that are often combined with other manufacturing aids to make powder flow more quickly and easily during manufacturing. Although these substances are safe and commonly used in the industry, they can impact nutrient absorption. Watch the video below to learn more, and check the back of your label to see if magnesium or vegetable stearates are lurking in your current supplement.
Only the purest and finest raw materials are used to create our products. In manufacturing there are two main options: truly raw materials or raw materials with substances added to them to help with manufacturing. Very few sources are available for vitamins B12, D, K, or biotin that haven’t been diluted with lactose, cornstarch, and preservatives. Thorne Research has developed manufacturing methods that allow them to use pure, undiluted nutrients to create the purest products possible.
COMMITMENT TO TESTING AND CERTIFICATION
All of our products are made at Thorne Research’s state-of-the-art facility. Every batch of ingredients is quarantined and tested for identity and purity before being released for manufacturing. Some products are tested again after mixing to ensure the proper mixture. After manufacturing has been completed, every finished product is tested before being released for sale.
Good manufacturing practices (GMPs), standard operating procedures for ensuring manufacturing consistency within an industry, are required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. They ensure, when followed exactly, a high level of consumer safety in all aspects of manufacturing. Thorne Research has completed two weeklong FDA inspections with no GMP violations.
EXOS Performance Nutrition is produced in an NSF International GMP registered facility. NSF International is an independent organization that verifies the facility has the proper methods, equipment, and controls in place for meeting quality standards. The EXOS Performance Nutrition products Multi-Vitamin Elite A.M./P.M., Omega-3, Catalyte Isotonic in lemon lime flavor, Aminos in lemon and berry flavors, and Whey Protein Isolate in chocolate and vanilla flavors have received the NSF Certified for Sport certification, which ensures that what’s on the label is in the bottle and that the product is free of more than 200 banned or prohibited substances. The NSF Certified for Sport program is recognized by the NFL, MLB, PGA, LPGA, and Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport.
