Our Dedication to Safety & Quality
Our dedication to safety and quality is paramount. As such we are involved at every stage of production from the raw botanicals to the finished product. VIVACA® is produced with rigorous and regulatory approved quality standards starting from the raw botanicals that are Canadian grown to ensure botanical authenticity, quality, and purity.
We are very passionate about ensuring our botanical ingredients are not exposed to pollutants, heavy metals, and pesticides. This is our reason for carefully selecting reputable growers across Canada, which also ensures each botanical lot can be traced back to its source.
Then each product batch is repeatedly tested at important stages of production all the way to finished product by qualified 3rd party scientists who conduct rigorous analytical testing to ensure each lot meets Canadian and US regulatory standards. Production is done within Health Canada NNHPD site licensed facilities using GMP, (Good Manufacturing Practices).

Each botanical ingredient has been chosen, for three important reasons. First, for their medicinal properties and second, to determine if it can be grown by Canadian Herb growers to obtain a superior quality with traceability. Each botanical is then studied, evaluated, and shortlisted based on historical and current clinical data through reputable sources. Then each botanical combination for the formulation is carefully chosen based their synergistic uses. Finally, the appropriate dosage is determined for effectiveness. The third step is to evaluate efficacy by conducting ‘case studies.’ (Each of the formulations is evaluated by independent clinical Naturopathic doctors whose knowledge of these botanical uses are implemented within their practices which remain ongoing today) VIVACA® formulations continue to be assessed by our consumers with positive feedback.
