List of Formulas with Animal Ingredients

Approximately 90 percent of our products are vegetarian, and we do not use animal ingredients as part of the encapsulation / tableting process.  Animal products are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and are historically part of western naturopathic medicine.
