Terry Lemerond, founder and president of EuroMedica®, has 45 years of experience in the nutritional supplement industry. He has developed over 400 nutritional and botanical formulations that continue to be top selling products on the market today. Mr. Lemerond introduced the concept of botanical standardization to the United States, which revolutionized the natural products industry. He is also credited with introducing such firsts as glucosamine sulfate, IP-6, standardized extracts and many others to the U.S. market. This passion and commitment to quality continues today.
EuroMedica provides professional natural medicines with clinically-tested and pure ingredients. Each product is produced following strict adherence to current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). We ensure that every product—from raw materials to completed formulations—comply with the highest standards, including:
• Product labeling
Current Good Manufacturing Processes are set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the Code of Regulations Title 21 (CFR21), parts 210-211. These requirements—met, and in many cases, exceeded by EuroMedica, include the following:
• Ensure that requirements, specifications, and tests are sufficiently described, documented, reviewed and approved for product, labeling, and packaging components utilizing Good Documentation Practices.
• Ensure that products are held under appropriate conditions of temperature, humidity, and light to ensure identity, purity, quality, strength, and composition are not adversely affected.
• Ensure personnel are properly trained and qualified for assigned roles and records of relevant training and experience are maintained and available. This includes the use of a Quality Control Unit to approve or reject procedures, specifications, controls, tests, product, packaging, and labels.
• Ensure that equipment is maintained, clean, and calibrated for proper performance and safety.
Beyond regulations, we believe in crafting the best possible natural medicines available for you and your patients. For example, our BCM-95® bioavailable curcumin. It forms the backbone of some of our most efficacious supplements, including:
• Curaphen® Extra Strength
• Curaphen® PM
• CuraPro® Brain
• CuraPro® with DIM
In a field where many tout the ability of natural ingredients, far too often, little thought is given to how these ingredients are gathered in the real world. Our BCM-95 bioavailable curcumin is produced with good health in mind well before ever becoming a supplement.
The optimal growing conditions for turmeric are found in the northeast areas of India. Specifically, the turmeric root used to create BCM-95 is grown in north east India, in the state of Assam, where the optimal growing conditions are found. It is grown without the use of pesticides or chemicals.
Only natural fertilizers are applied, and after digging the turmeric roots and rhizomes, leaves, ash and organic matter are tilled back into the soil for better overall health. This is time-consuming work—done almost entirely by hand, and the crops are carefully—and sustainably—tended.
Incoming raw material is regularly analyzed for contaminants (including heavy metals), in addition to standardization parameters including curcumin content, moisture, and other factors. After extraction, micronization, and blending with turmeric essential oils the potency of the curcumin is verified.
EuroMedica is in the business of improving lives, and that includes the people who plant, tend, and harvest the turmeric crop for BCM-95. They are independent local farmers, who sell their crops through the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee—a cooperative society that ensures they are paid reasonable and competitive prices. Additionally, governmental agencies including the Spice Board of India and the Agriculture Department work with the cooperative to promote and improve cultivation and farming techniques.
