China exports billions of dollars of food and supplement ingredients each year. By 2015 China is expected to gross over $95 billion in sales of food additives and ingredients. The majority of all vitamins produced in the world comes from China. Even-though thousands of distributors sell these vitamins under different brands claiming to be better than the other, most are produced in the same factories. Luckily most U.S. supplement manufacturers demand USP Grade ingredients that have to meet U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) Standards and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

For best quality products, make sure the supplements you are buying for your family are manufactured in GMP Certified facilities and that USP Grade ingredients are used.
