The Labels You Can Trust: FDA & GMP Certification Explained

FDA & GMP Certification

You might have noticed the FDA and GMP stamps on your Secrets of the Tribe supplements, but there's a lot more to these certifications than meets the eye. As a brand deeply committed to transparency, we want to make sure you understand why these certifications are crucial for ensuring quality and safety.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plays a vital role in overseeing guidelines and regulations for dietary supplements. They ensure that everything from manufacturing and testing to labeling is done properly. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) provide strict protocols for maintaining quality throughout production.

When we achieve both FDA registration and GMP compliance, it means that Secrets of the Tribe's facilities, equipment, processes, and products meet the highest standards of excellence. While these certifications are not legally required, we actively pursue them because your well-being is our top priority.

At Secrets of the Tribe, we combine ancient herbal wisdom with modern science. Our team pays meticulous attention to every detail to create supplements that safely unlock the healing potential of nature. Rigorous FDA and GMP certifications provide external validation that we practice what we preach.

So, what do these acronyms mean for us as a company and for you, our valued customer? In this article, let's dive into the importance of FDA and GMP certifications, so you can have complete confidence in the products you choose.

Ensuring Product Quality

Here at Secrets of the Tribe, we take great care in crafting every formula we produce. Part of that care is ensuring product quality through certifications you can trust. Our FDA registered facility status means we meet FDA registration requirements and are subject to inspection for compliance with Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs).

GMP certification indicates that we have undergone independent audits to confirm that we meet comprehensive GMP quality standards throughout all our manufacturing processes. These guidelines minimize risks by demanding meticulous facility design, employee training, sanitation procedures, process controls, and detailed record-keeping. FDA registration also entails the possibility of inspections at any time.

Furthermore, our GMP certification offers third-party validation of our commitment to quality manufacturing across all levels. GMP standards encompass:

  • Raw material checks to ensure identity, purity, and safety
  • Validation of equipment cleaning and maintenance
  • Detailed, written instructions for each production step
  • Extensive product testing procedures
  • Protocol enforcement through quality control

By certifying our facility and processes to meet the stringent benchmarks of FDA and GMP standards, we prioritize quality above all else. These certifications instill rigorous control throughout our supply chain and supplement production.

Our certifications provide the assurance that we apply the same level of care to manufacturing supplements as we do to sourcing herbs. Just as we intricately craft each formula based on ancient wisdom, we meticulously uphold modern quality standards.

Upholding Safety Standards

In addition to quality, we take every measure to ensure the safety of our products. Our FDA registered status and GMP certification validate our commitment to reducing risks for our customers.

FDA registration subjects our manufacturing facility to rigorous guidelines and oversight focused on safety. This includes protocols for facility design, extensive employee training in safety procedures, implementation of sanitation programs, and comprehensive documentation of process controls.

Moreover, our GMP certification mandates stringent safety checks during production, such as testing of raw materials, screening for environmental contaminants, and retaining samples for stability confirmation. Ongoing audits provide reassurance that our safety protocols align with superior GMP benchmarks.

We believe in complete transparency, which is why we only use accredited third-party laboratories to test all our herbal supplements. This rigorous independent analysis ensures our products meet the highest standards of purity, potency, and quality.

We send samples from each batch to external labs to verify identity, strength, viability, and integrity through unbiased processes. You can trust these labs to thoroughly analyze our raw materials, extracts, and finished capsules and tinctures to guarantee therapeutic potency.

By gladly investing in meticulous third-party testing, we demonstrate our commitment to your well-being. You deserve full confidence in the safety and effectiveness of the natural products proudly bearing our name. Our mission is honoring nature’s wisdom — rigorous testing helps us deliver it.

We leave nothing to chance when it comes to safeguarding the products you trust. Our certifications reflect our meticulous and proactive approach to upholding stringent safety standards at each stage.

Integrity Through Compliance

At Secrets of the Tribe, we perceive FDA and GMP compliance not as mere requirements, but as responsibilities. We closely adhere to supplement regulations because maintaining integrity as an ethical business aligns with our values.

While certifications might seem impressive on paper, we bring them to life through dedicated individuals who share our commitment to transparency and care. For us, standards exist to drive excellence rather than just fulfill checkboxes.

Failure to comply with Current Good Manufacturing Practices could result in the revocation of our FDA registration, production halts, and, most importantly, a breach of your trust. Similarly, not pursuing GMP certification would jeopardize your confidence in our manufacturing practices. For us, this is unacceptable.

When it comes to preserving your well-being, there's no room for shortcuts. Rigorous certifications provide us with opportunities to enhance our practices as we consistently raise our own standards.


At Secrets of the Tribe, we take pride in merging ancient wisdom with modern care — certifications being an integral part of this approach.

We actively pursue voluntary registrations and certifications because your health is our responsibility. Our goal is for you to feel secure in the safety, quality, and integrity of our products, supporting you on your journey. If we ever fall short, we urge you to reach out so we can make it right.

While the main focus of this article revolves around FDA registration and GMP certification, it's essential to highlight another significant facet of Secrets of the Tribe's commitment to quality: our certification from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This certification underscores our dedication to sustainability and authenticates our adherence to rigorous organic farming and production practices.
