So what if a supplement or drug manufacturer isn't following cGMP guidelines?
Products made in other countries may have quality standards that are enforced by other regulatory agencies. Although cGMP requirements are enforced by the United State's federal government, they can be enforced in manufacturing facilities worldwide. This ensures that the entire supply chain of a product is evaluated and vetted against cGMP standards and is not limited by geographic borders.
According to the FDA "If a company is not complying with CGMP regulations, any drug it makes is considered “adulterated” under the law. This kind of adulteration means that the drug was not manufactured under conditions that comply with CGMP. It does not mean that there is necessarily something wrong with the drug." These products will also be susceptible to recall if the product is found to be dangerous or has made false claims.
Choosing cGMP certified is in the best interest of the consumer. It calls for accountability, transparency, and purity which ultimately translates to safety and efficacy for the end-user. Don't get lost in the gray area. If you have questions about a brand's manufacturing process, ingredients, or more, do some internet digging or ask the brand directly.
