At Herbs for Life, Inc. in York, Maine, Herbalist Joyce Belcher creates botanical and superfood based synergistic blends that are specific to animal wellness, Equine, Canine and Feline. The supplements are made by hand in small batches using only certified organic and ethically/responsibly wildcrafted herbs. Her passion for all things pure and organic took her in search of a certification for her organic pet supplements, that’s when Belcher found the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC).
The National Animal Supplement Council is a non-profit industry group dedicated to protecting and enhancing the health of companion animals and horses throughout the United States.
As part of its ongoing efforts to improve and standardize the animal health supplement industry, NASC initiated its Quality Seal Program. The seal is a way for consumers to know that when they buy a product, they buy from a reputable company that has successfully completed a facility audit. Different from the NASC logo, use of the seal is a privilege for members and signifies that the company has been audited for implementation of specific standards.
The importance of NASC and its comprehensive audit program is to help minimize and control risk, statistically track all product information, keep the consumer educated with correct labeling information, and make the consumer aware of any possible ingredient complexities with caution and warning statements. Ultimately, the entire program is designed to help elevate the quality of the animal health supplement industry for the benefit of all stakeholders including consumers and, more importantly, the animals themselves.
After months of diligence and conforming, Herbs for Life, Inc. was awarded the NASC Quality Seal on all of their pet supplements for horses, dog and cats, assuring consumers they can rest assured that the product and company behind the seal is of top quality.
