Planetary Herbals has one of the best teams in the industry and follow Good Manufacturing Practices that exceed those mandated by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DHEA).

These include qualitative and quantitative analysis using ultraviolet and infrared spectrophotometry, thin layer chromatography (TLC), and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) as well as Inductively Coupled Plasma-Maa Spectrometry (ICP-MS) screening for heavy metals and full microbiological testing to ensure all herbs are free of pathogenic bacteria.
