Q. What does the word "halal" mean?
A. The word "halal" means that which is permissible or lawful by God. Contrary to what many people believe, halal is not only limited to what Muslims can eat or drink. It extends to everything we do in life.
The opposite of the word "halal" is the word "haram", which means that which is forbidden or unlawful. In everything we do in life, we should strive to follow halal means and avoid haram ones in order to please God and to achieve success in this world and in the hereafter.
Q. What is the Halal and Wholesome vitamins and dietary supplements collection?
A. The Halal and Wholesome collection is a line of high-quality vitamins and dietary supplements manufactured in Canada in GMP-compliant facilities registered with Health Canada and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
All products are registered with Health Canada and carry a national product number (NPN). The entire collection is certified halal by the Halal Advisory Group (HAG) in Canada.
Q. Why is it important to look for halal vitamins and dietary supplements?
A. While laws in most countries require manufacturers to list all active and inactive ingredients on the product label, it is not required by law to disclose the source of those ingredients.
Many vitamins and dietary supplements contain gelatin or glycerin obtained from porcine sources (pigs). Other products contain alcohol. Prohibited ingredients are not limited to gelatin, glycerin or alcohol. It extends to include coloring agents and other inactive ingredients such as magnesium stearate, which can be derived from either a vegetarian source or from an animal source.
Purchasing halal-certified products ensure that they do not contain alcohol, ingredients derived from a porcine origin or any other forbidden ingredients. So you no longer have to worry about looking up the product online or calling the manufacturer to inquire about the source of ingredients.
Using halal-certified products gives you peace of mind and allows you to nourish your body with high-quality vitamins and dietary supplements while purifying your soul by doing so the halal way!
