Botany Evolution operates a state of the art testing facility with industry-standard equipment used to testing the Nobility, along with its breakdown in contents, including Kavalactone levels. We use an Agilent 1100/1200 HPLC with DAD Detector along with a Windows 7 Pro Chem-station PC.
If you’ve purchased Kava from another source (farmer, supplier, distributor, retailer, online, etc), and you are unsure of the quality of your product, send it to our labs and we will have our chemist test its composition of Kavalactones. Our test and report will show its compliance to Nobility standards (Noble or Tudei), its Chemotype, K/DHM calculation, Kavalactone content and percentage, and will include the Chromatogram graph.
If you question out testing methods, send the kava to a verifiable ISO 17025 accredited lab, if their results are different from ours we will pay for the test! This offer only applies if the results are different! Thus far, we have never seen a variance.
1-4 Samples – $150 / sample
5+ Samples – $100 / sample
HEAVY METALS TESTING
There are many heavy metals in our environment both naturally and from pollution. The term “heavy metal” applies to a group of metals with similar chemical properties. Some of these, including copper, iron and zinc, play important roles in our bodies. Others have no known benefit for health. The following test covers all the heavy metals that are the most dangerous for human consumption and are most likely to be present in food products.
GMP Deluxe includes testing by dosages for FDA & GMP standard labeling requirements. Use this test if you intend to retail your product.
