The Kirkman Quality Difference

RENO, NV--(Marketwired - June 10, 2015) - Kirkman®, a Nevada-based nutraceutical manufacturer, has been best known for making nutritional supplements that serve individuals with allergies and special dietary requirements.

More recently, Kirkman® has become known for its proprietary purity testing protocol the company calls "Ultra Tested." This stringent purity testing protocol requires that Kirkman® tests every product it manufactures for more than 950 environmental contaminants.

"No other nutraceutical company in the world has a higher standard of purity testing in the world," Kulani Mahikoa, executive vice president of Kirkman® said.

Kirkman® invested millions of dollars and several years in the development of technology and methodologies to test its products for hundreds of the most problematic environmental contaminants.

Mahikoa cited two reasons for pursuing this costly step. The first reason is that Kirkman's customers deserve the company's best effort to improve their health. The second reason is that the industry's sources of supply have switched from the U.S. to foreign countries. "We believe that both nutraceutical and pharmaceutical companies can no longer guarantee that their products are free of environmental contaminants without the degree and sophistication of purity testing that Kirkman® uses," Mahikoa said.

"Not many people know that DNA only accounts for about 10% of your health profile. Ninety percent of all chronic illnesses are caused by environmental conditions, according to the Centers for Disease Control," Mahikoa explained.

Founded in 1949, Kirkman® is one of the oldest nutraceutical companies that serve the special needs community. It manufacturers more than 400 nutritional supplements and many proprietary products including "Super Nu-Thera®," "Pro-Bio Gold®", and "Enzym-Complete DPP-IV™ with Isogest® -- all of which are among the top selling products for special needs individuals.
