Coastside Bio Resources, manufacturers of all natural joint supplements, has recently passed the National Animal Supplement Council’s facility audit with an “A” rating. Coastside, as a four year member of NASC, is now certified to display the NASC Seal of Quality on its web site and products. 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. NASC was formed in 2001 when the multibillion dollar animal health supplement industry was threatened by a complicated and erratic regulatory environment. As part of its ongoing effort 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 quality standards. Coastside Bio Resources has manufactured its line of NutriSea® sea cucumber based supplements for pets and people for over 12 years.
