From the manufacturer
Live Happy. Live Healthy. Live NOW.
Even when healthy foods and natural supplements weren’t mainstream, NOW’s founder Elwood Richard started his own company to meet consumer needs for health foods by offering affordable, high quality natural products. Still family owned 50 years later, NOW has never wavered from this mission.
NOW’s Core Values
Quality & Testing
As one of the natural products industry’s premier manufacturers, NOW owns and operates several manufacturing and distribution facilities in the United States and Canada.
Both the Bloomingdale and Sparks facilities also house state-of-the-art testing laboratories, where NOW’s quality technicians use the latest analytical instrumentation to perform approximately 16,000 tests on ingredients and finished products each month.
Our primary manufacturing facility also contains several in-house laboratories, including gas chromatography, analytical, microbiological, and sensory labs. Our in-house laboratories help us to expedite the testing of raw materials, ingredient samples, and finished products, and afford our technicians a level of quality control that is virtually unmatched within the natural products industry.
Family Owned & Operated
As a family-owned business NOW isn’t beholden to shareholders. We have no outside interests to deter us from our long-term goal of providing value in natural products that empower healthier lives.
Since 1968 the Richard family has guided NOW, always keeping us focused on what matters most – providing the highest quality natural products at the best possible price. The family maintains long-standing relations with many of the world’s top ingredient suppliers to keep prices low, and they’re continuously reinvesting in cutting-edge laboratory facilities and the latest analytical instrumentation to ensure that quality is never compromised.
As a natural products manufacturer NOW is keenly aware of our potential impact on the environment, and we’re committed to responsible stewardship of our planet through the reduction of our carbon footprint and other sustainability initiatives.
NOW has recently become a proud partner of Terracycle, a U.S.-based recycling company that takes non-recyclable and hard-to-recycle pre-consumer and post-consumer waste and converts it into finished goods. Currently Terracycle accepts toothpaste tubes and food and supplement pouches from NOW.
NOW has enjoyed many good years, but we’ve also seen plenty of lean years, and it’s these times that help us remain grounded and focused on what really matters – helping others.
At NOW we’re committed to sharing our blessings and good fortune with others. To this end we give generously based on the needs we see around us, as well as specific, ongoing causes. We give to charities in a direct and efficient manner, and we actively seek charities that are 'self-enabling', or those charities that encourage their recipients and teach them the skills they need to take care of themselves going forward.

If you are on a restorative plan, attempting to heal microbial imbalances in the gut or on the skin, or you already know you have chronic or recurring yeast issues because of a leaky gut, my gentle recommendation would be to start slowly--especially if you already incorporate coconut products in your diet. For example, consider starting with 1 capsule every other day for the first few week, take 1 a day the second week, and if all goes well (no gastric "upset") take the recommended 1 capsule twice a day.
I started with one a capsule day and I got wicked diarrhea. The bad-flora clear-out process was brief but intense, so I cut back to one capsule every other day until things went back to normal. Then I slowly increased to the recommended dosage. Within a couple weeks, I noticed an increase in energy, less joint pain, and overall feeling of lightness.
As far as caprylic acid's topical antibacterial benefits, I decided to conduct an experiment. I'd recently suffered a deep puncture wound on the back of my hand that had been healing nicely. After the 5th day, however, the area around the puncture became *extremely* red, swollen, painful, and hot to the touch. I was afraid I'd need to see a doctor for antibiotics to stop the infection, as I did not want to risk sepsis, which can be fatal if untreated. However, I'd previously read about people using coconut oil to clear up skin issues (such as athlete's foot), so I decided to try it, telling myself that it conditions worsened by the next morning I would see a physician immediately. I squeezed the contents of one capsule directly onto the wound, covered loosely with gauze and surgical tape, and the next morning the skin surrounding the puncture was pink instead of an angry red. Since then, I have kept the wound covered and moist with coconut goodness, alternating between caprylic acid capsules and basic cocout oil, and the healing process has sped up noticeably. After three days, the wound shows a tiny bit of pink surrounding a very pale scab. I'm hoping the coconut treatment might even ameliorate scar formation. Using caprylic acid not only saved me a trip to the doctor but let me avoid dosing my body with antibiotics, which I prefer to take only if absolutely medically necessary.
I am very happy I added these capsules to my supplement routine.
UPDATE: August 2, 2014. There is no scar. The skin that suffered the deep puncture wound is the tiniest bit more pink than the surrounding skin, but there is no visible scar formation. I am convinced the coconut treatment helped. My hands and wrists have several small scars from cooking burns, and those burns were far less severe than that puncture wound.
