Nutraceutical Ingredient Solutions

End-users of dietary supplements and natural health products demand products that are safe, effective and made using quality raw materials.  CK Ingredients is helping natural health products manufacturers to meet those demands by providing innovative, condition-specific ingredients backed by gold-standard human clinical studies that demonstrate efficacy.  We maintain long-standing exclusive supply agreements with leading suppliers of proprietary nutraceutical and nutritional ingredients.  We carefully screen our supplier partners to ensure you are receiving regulatory-compliant raw materials that add value to your finished products.

Our ever-expanding portfolio is focused mainly around IP-protected ingredients and covers a wide range of health conditions that include antioxidant protection, bladder control, blood glucose management, cardiovascular support, detoxification, digestive health, energy, eye health, immune support, joint care, menopause support, mental acuity, skincare, sports nutrition, stress and weight management.

Although our roots are in Canada, we now proudly serve both Canadian and U.S. dietary supplement, sports nutrition and prestige cosmetics manufacturers and marketers.  Since Canadian natural health product regulations are among the most stringent in the world, you can rest assured that we carefully select raw materials that have a high likelihood of being successfully licensed in finished products.  Many of our science-backed ingredients are supported by Master Files and we are pleased that a growing number of our key products have been granted NPNs (Natural Product Numbers) in a finished-product format.
