GMP – Good Manufacturing Practice. Products may have a GMP certificate only if they are under constant and strict control at every production stage. Having met all the necessary conditions gave Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the basis to positively evaluate the products of the following companies: 4 Life Products, Perfect Nutrition i CaliVita, which are all offered by the distribution company CaliVita International.
Why is the possesion of GMP important?
Having GMP matters because every individual who wants to buy a medicine or dietary supplement would like to be perfectly sure that the product is safe, all the information given on the box is true and that it is not contaminated. It is meant to help not to harm.
Especially in case of food and medicine production, meeting the standards of GMP is very improtant!
GMP is a collection of documents describing procedures connected with manufacturing a certain product and all the processes involved. Therefore producers care to find and remove all the weaknesses of their goods at all production stages thus assuring their future.
The final quality of a product results from the quality of resources it is made from but it is alos determined by factors like: the neighbourhood of the manufacturing plant, the condition of the buildings and strict adherance to the production technology, which includes: the hygene of the machines and devices, precise cleaning and disinfection processes, staff hygene and the supervision of product storin and distribution.
GMP clearly specifies the conditions that should be met by a producer in these areas. If ,at least one of the production stages – storing for example, is not adherent to the rules of GMP the producer does not meet all the necessary conditions and loses their GMP certificate and FDA certificate as well.
Running their production strictly in accordance with the processes of GMP authorizes such a producer to receive a FDA certificate.

It is considered to be the world’s most rigorous organisation supervising and evaluating food products and drugs. Therefore its approval of a particular product is respected all over the world and it proves its quality and lack of negative influence on health.
Having met all the necessary conditions gave Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the basis to positively evaluate the products of the following companies: 4 Life Products, Perfect Nutrition i CaliVita, which are all offered by the distribution company CaliVita International.
