Finally the time has come! We did a lot at the Nature Made headquarters and lab facilities. So, let’s dive right in because I’ve got a lot to cover that I think you will find very interesting.
After breakfast on Thursday we started our day with a drive to Pharmavite, LLC – a leader in the wellness industry for over 40 years and the parent company of Nature Made Vitamins.

We immediately headed to a conference room to spend some time learning about various aspects of Nature Made vitamins from the directors of many key areas. These individuals shared so much expertise as well as an obvious passion for Nature Made and vitamins.
Over the course of the morning, I learned many interesting facts about Nature Made as a company. These only confirm my previously held beliefs about Nature Made as a quality supplement source.
- Nature Made is the #1 vitamin provider in the world and highly recommended by many doctors and pharmacies across the United States.
- Nature Made provides pharmaceutical level vitamins, minerals, and supplements.
- Nature Made only will use products and doses that have previously proved scientifically valid.
- Nature Made puts the science behind their vitamins through 3rd party testing to ensure quality and accuracy of their product claims.
Speaking with them displayed Nature Made’s passion as a brand to bring better health to the public by making vitamins more accessible and more enjoyable to more people. I definitely think they are succeeding in that arena.
- Nature Made not only focuses on the highest quality, but also keeping products at a lower price point to remain affordable to the general public.
- Nature Made constantly works with consumers through marketing insights to determine ways to improve their vitamins.
- Nature Made consistently seeks out innovative ways to provide an enjoyable user experience.
Which they plan to do through their newest line of products – Vitamelts.
More details on those later.
Not only did we each have the opportunity to sample these convenient vitamins, we even got to visit the labs where they originally developed!
The labs were like nothing else. I felt like part of the official crew having to toss on protective gear from the hairnets to safety glasses to a smock. You couldn’t even go into the production area with a single scrap of jewelry on to ensure zero metal contamination of the vitamins and supplements.
We walked the floor, watching vitamins pouring out into bottles, labeling of bottles, packaging of boxes…and workers overseeing everything for quality assurance.
It was so cool! The lab portion of the tour was even more exciting to me, though.
We spoke with Jones Chan, the Director of Research and Development. He provided an enormous amount of insight into vitamins in general and the different ways Nature Made comes to produce things how they do.
The level of testing they run each batch of vitamins through is pretty astounding – the time it takes for vitamins to dissolve for quality absorption, the levels of the various supplements over time following absorption, and even the strength of the seams to ensure a non-sticky experience in bottles of gelcaps. They cover it all.
I learned so much and my head was spinning with all the information. Good thing I had a handy dandy notebook to keep track of it all before hopping in front of the camera on Friday.
Nature Made must have done a good job passing along their knowledge, because I surprisingly didn’t feel too nervous in front of the cameras. I loved chatting up vitamins and healthy lifestyles on camera and all that jazz with my new Nature Made ambassador buddies.
Can’t wait to see the finished videos, which I promise to share!
Seeing all of the attention to detail, science, and quality left me feeling quite confident in Nature Made and happy to join them as a Nature Made Ambassador.
That’s right! I’m now an official ambassador. Speaking with everyone, seeing the facilities, and using their products over the years has me looking forward to working with Nature Made in the coming months. A company passionate about helping others achieve better health? Never a bad thing to me!
If you’re interested in more great recaps of the Nature Made weekend (or some wonderful new blogs to visit), I suggest checking out my fellow Ambassadors.
