What are “MediNutritionals?” 

A term coined by MediNutritionals Research President and nutritional supplement industry veteran Gerard McIntee, “MediNutritionals” describes the category of professional quality, science-backed nutritional supplements offered exclusively through medical and other qualified healthcare professionals.
 
"Recognizing that quality can vary greatly from product to product and brand to brand, today's patients seek their practitioners’ guidance in selecting high caliber supplements to help them achieve maximum wellness benefits," notes McIntee. "What’s more, when choosing supplements, patients desire coordinated care through their healthcare professional that takes into account their individual health concerns and conditions." 
 
MediNutritionals Research is the parent company of the health practitioner-exclusive brand Patient One MediNutritionals.

Formulations Designed for Compliance and Results

Eight allergenic foods are believed to be responsible for 90% of food allergic reactions: milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybeans. We take care to avoid common food allergens wherever possible to make our supplements suitable for sensitive patients. We also strive to avoid yeast-derived ingredients. All ingredients are disclosed, so if it is not listed on our label, is is not in our product.

Look for the GLUTEN FREE, VEGETARIAN, and NON-GMO symbols as you view our products to easily identify a product's status.

Trademarked Ingredients in our Formulas

Before our own extensive testing procedures begin, we’ve thoroughly researched and selected proven raw ingredients that support the efficacy and safety of our products.

As you peruse the Ingredients tabs to view our product formulas, you will see dozens of trademarked neutraceutical logos indicating the unique, branded ingredients we use.

Developers of these materials have invested in R&D and years of study, resulting in clinical evidence and safety data to give you and your patients advanced, reliable options.

What makes these proprietary ingredients better? 

Each has its own specific characteristics and tangible advantages, such as: 

  • A reduced or pre-converted form that can help overcome challenges patients may have in metabolizing certain nutrients
  • A scientific breakthrough that results in a product that is structurally unique. A different molecular structure may produce an enhanced effect such as improved absorption
  • A patented technological process through which an herb or fruit is extracted that produces a higher concentrate for higher potency (and lower efficacious dose), or provides improved bioavailability and greater absorption—or both
  • A proprietary chelation method that ensures minerals are provided in a nutritionally functional, fully usable form
  • A blended or bonded combination of compatible nutrients that increases biological activity and absorption
  • A form that reduces or eliminates undesirable side effects

Where it makes sense, we use preferred proprietary ingredients to enhance the quality of Patient One formulas.

Manufacturing Excellence

Patient One’s manufacturing facility meets all NSF International standards, United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) as set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In addition to our own stringent monitoring systems, our facility is audited by the FDA, including unannounced plant inspections, as well as verified by third-party organizations to ensure ongoing compliance with a variety of rigorous requirements and quality standards.

 

 

 


Stringent Testing & Quality Control Procedures 

  • 225,000-square foot facility is located on Long Island, New York 
  • Highly trained chemists, microbiologists and lab technicians in our state-of-the-art, 5000-square foot laboratory perform a full range of testing with the most advanced instrumentation available: UPLC, HPLC, HPTLC, FTIR, ICP, GC Mass Spectrometry, and more
  • Product testing includes analysis throughout every step of production: raw materials, mixing, milling, tableting, capsuling and packaging
  • Raw ingredients and finished product mixes are tested and analyzed for identity, potency, and purity including microbial contaminants, heavy metals, solvent residues, PCBs, pesticide residues, and more
  • Manufacturing occurs in temperature-, humidity- and dust-controlled rooms. Our facility's climate-controlled warehouse protects the stability of our raw ingredients and finished products
  • Equipment is dismantled and sterilized prior to each use, and a comprehensive allergen control program is in place to prevent potential cross-contamination
  • Many tests are performed after our products are capsuled or tableted. Weights are verified to ensure label claims are met. 
     

Quality Assurance and Control From Start to Finish

Patient One starts with premium-grade raw materials sourced from the industry’s most reputable suppliers.

All raw materials are quarantined for testing prior to manufacture. Every batch is tested for identity as well as to ensure that the raw materials are potent and free of contaminants.

Quality Assurance continues once raw materials are approved for manufacture. Dozens of in-process checks are performed and documented in our laboratory as our supplements are produced.

Patient One's finished supplements are analyzed again to ensure quality control. Samples are brought back to the lab from every lot made for additional testing.

Laboratory assays are conducted that certify that each supplement contains the ingredients and potencies that are listed on the label.

 Full Disclosure Labeling 

  • Labels list all ingredients, including the composition of the raw material
  • Standardizations of herbal extracts are provided to indicate primary active market compounds
  • Vitamins and minerals are listed by true elemental weight
