Learning the Language of Nature's Way Herbs

You’ve come to expect purity, potency, and safety from Nature's Way products, whether that's herbs, homeopathic remedies, or multivitamins. These products have become part of your life, but you may wonder why our herbal line packaging features four different colored lids: yellow, green, gray, and purple. Are the colors just for show, or do they mean something?

In keeping with our mission to help you live your best life possible, we've classified our herbs into four categories: Single, Enhanced, Premium, and Vitamins and Minerals with each category designed to meet your diverse needs and preferences. We've made it easy for you to distinguish between these categories by the color of the lid. Here's what the colors mean:

Green cap: Single herbs

If you're looking for a single herbal ingredient, this is the product line for you. The “green cap” herbal line is made with single herbs, either from the whole plant or a seed, root, or leaf.

Many Nature's Way single herb products are TRU-ID Authenticated so you can be sure that what's on the label is what's in your bottle.

Purple cap: Enhanced herbs

Nature's Way herbal products with the purple lid contain standardized herbal extracts or herbal combinations that support a specific function. When an herb is standardized, it means that certain elements of the herb are present in a precise, guaranteed concentration. A benefit of standardization is that a smaller dose is needed to achieve a specific benefit. This criteria for our enhanced herb line ensures that when you reach for the purple cap, you can guarantee that the quality and potency of that formula are consistent from batch to batch.

Gray cap: Premium herbs

When you want superior quality and ingredients and science-based health benefits, look for products with a gray lid. Our premium herbs line ranges from the highest quality individual herbs to superior proprietary blends that combine herbal extracts with things like vitamins, minerals, or enzymes. Not only do these products provide you with a range of benefits, they're also easier on your wallet than buying a whole bunch of individual ingredients!

Yellow cap: Vitamins and minerals

They may not be herbs, but we also offer vitamin and mineral formulas in bottles with marigold yellow caps. Each product, whether it's a single vitamin or a blend of several minerals, has been carefully tested and produced to superior quality standards.

At Nature's Way, authenticity and quality are woven into the very fabric of our company. Whether you want to keep it simple with a single herb or are looking for a more complex blend, you can feel secure that every product we create delivers quality without compromise to help you live a healthier life.
