What does ‘Halal’ mean?
Halal is an Arabic word, which means ‘permissible’. In terms of Islamic dietary laws, ‘Halal’ means that the nutrients have come from permissible sources, and are free of any forbidden substances (such as pigs, bones, alcohol, and blood).
What makes most vitamins non-halal?
Other major vitamin brands such as Centrum® and One-A-Day® usually contain gelatin. In addition, fat soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E, and K can come from non-halal sources.
Why is gelatin haram?
Gelatin is used as a softening agent. Most companies use gelatin that is extracted from haram sources such as pig fat or bones because it is common and inexpensive to make. This is forbidden according to Islamic dietary laws and is therefore haram. However, Natures Well™ uses gelatin from HALAL sources only. All our products are certified HALAL. No haram ingredients are used in any Natures Well ™ products.
