Ultra Laboratories - The Additive Free Company

The “Additive-Free” Company

Emerald Laboratories is the “additive-free company”, offering pure, whole-food based supplements that are gluten free, and vegan and/or vegetarian where possible. They are doctor formulated using therapeutic doses based on clinical research. Select from the many condition-specific formulas to help support adrenal glands, seasonal allergies, sleep issues, vitamin supplementation, blood sugar health, digestive health, and more.

Ultra Laboratories
All Ultra Laboratories products, including our Emerald Laboratories brand, are 100% Additive-free. Being the "Additive-Free Company" means that we use NO additives and NO excipients in ANY of our products. Additives generally have little or no nutritive value. The objective of taking a dietary supplement is for the herbs or nutrients to break down and be utilized by our bodies. Additives do not generally facilitate this process. In fact, some individuals feel that additives can actually hinder this process.

The best nutritional supplements promote the quick uptake by the body of the nutrients they possess. They do this by being in a form that the body can easily assimilate so it can access the herb or nutrient and expose it to processes that will ultimately lead to the nutrient taking part in cellular metabolism. While some people are sensitive and may react allergically to certain additives, the most unfortunate fact regarding additives is that some additives have been shown in preliminary in vitro studies to possess possible harmful effects.

Additives include:

  • Binders, which are glue-like substances used to form powdered nutrients into tablets
  • Flowing agents and lubricants, which are used to assist the flow of nutrients through the manufacturing process
  • Fillers, which are additives possessing a "fluffy" quality that make capsules look uniformly full
  • Coloring agents, coatings and glazes.

Some of the Common Additives and Excipients Used in Manufacturing are as Follows:

Stearic Acid – A binder typically used in the manufacturing of tablets. This ingredient is not typically used in the manufacturing of capsules.

Magnesium Stearate – A lubricant typically used in the manufacturing of tablets and capsules. There is research indicating that stearic acid and magnesium stearate both possess "T-Cell Inhibiting" characteristics and other adverse effects. Studies available upon request. Please note that some companies state "vegetable lubricant" on their labels; this IS magnesium stearate.

Silicon Dioxide – A flowing agent typically used in the manufacturing of tablets and capsules.

Croscarmellose Sodium – A disintegrating agent typically used in the manufacturing of tablets so that they effectively break down in the stomach. Disintegration tests are usually performed in the laboratory to verify that the tablets dissolve within thirty minutes in water.

Microcrystalline Cellulose – A cellulose-based filler typically used in the manufacturing of tablets and capsules. This material is typically bleached and refined.

Rice Flour – A filler typically used in the manufacturing of capsules. This material is typically bleached and refined. It is most often used because it is much cheaper than brown rice flour and most companies want a filler that is white.

Why our Gluten-Free Formulas are Important:

Gluten sensitivities are becoming more and more common among people. We have made these formulas completely gluten-free so that our supplements will not pose problems for people with this issue.

Why our Purity-Tested Formulas are Important:

Each and every one of the raw materials in our Emerald Laboratories Condition-Specific Formulas are tested by our laboratory for identity, strength, composition and purity.

Why Vegetable Capsules are Important:

Every Emerald Laboratories Condition-Specific Product is in vegetable capsules so that vegetarians and people that have concerns about animal-based products can be confident in taking our products.

Why our Raw Whole-Food Based Formulas are Important:

Enzymes, Prebiotics, and Probiotics are some of the primary keys involved in slowing the aging process and maintaining proper absorption. Raw whole foods are rich in essential enzymes which help to maintain excellent health. Digestive and metabolic enzymes as well as healthy “gut” bacteria (probiotics) tend to “drop-off” as we age. Our Raw Whole Food Blend which is in every Emerald Laboratories Condition-Specific Formula provides a synergistic blend of sprout powders (one of the richest sources of metabolic enzymes), broad-spectrum plant-based digestive enzymes as well as a rich blend of probiotics, raw whole foods and prebiotics (essential food for probiotics).


At Ultra Laboratories we are committed to what we believe:

All Ultra Laboratories products are produced at our own cGMP-Certified Facility in Carson, CA where we can control and protect our prodcuts from start to finish. Ultra Laboratories also has its own "in-house" laboratory where all raw ingredients are tested including testing finished goods for any microbial or pathogenic contamination as well as for lead.
