Company Description

Continental Vitamin Company Founder Ron Beckenfeld began distributing natural dietary products in 1969. Now, with a cGMP-compliant and FDA-certified (as a drug manufacturer) 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, Continental Vitamin Company’s Superior Source products have earned the trust of the natural products community. The company’s fully staffed research and development facility continues to grow its list of over 140 products.

The manufacturer of the Superior Source product line, Continental Vitamin Company is recognized as the only source of soft-molded, instant-release nutraceutical tablets. Only Superior Source provides a diverse line of vitamins, minerals and herbal formulas in instant-release, softmolded tablets. Continental Vitamin Company’s proprietary methods involve using low-pressure hydromolecular (LPH) technology to create these unique tablets. The firm’s trade secret MicroLingual® delivery system bypasses the digestive system; the soft-molded tablets dissolve immediately, resulting in quick and direct absorption.
