Certified Organic Pharmacy Prescriptions
American Integrative Pharmacy is one of the only pharmacies that can use USDA certified organic ingredients for its prescriptions. We have a special agreement with a vendor for these products. Because the majority of prescriptions are made of filler, the quality and components of the fillers can be crucial to maximizing active ingredients and keeping the product pure. We are one of the only pharmacies in the country that offers this option to patients.
AIP provides patients with genuine care and quality medicine as a full-service, patient-centered compounding pharmacy. We make our patients feel a part of the family. We provide patients with access to USDA certified organic ingredients as a part of our commitment to offer reliable care. This is just one of the ways we are different from the crowd.

Why are USDA Certified Organic Ingredients Important?
A segment of the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) – National Organic Program’s mission is to protect the integrity of all organic products in the United States. This means creating enforceable and clear standards that protect the integrity of food items from farm to table. Consumers trust USDA certification and many of them look for it when purchasing organic ingredients.
Organic producers make use of mechanical, physical, and biologically based farming methods and rely on natural substances to the fullest possible extent. Organic product needs to be grown on soil that doesn’t have any prohibited substances, such as synthetic pesticides or fertilizers applied on it for at least three years before harvest. The integrity of USDA certified organic ingredients to customers is verified from farm to market and this is why they trust the certification.
Importance of USDA Certification for Organic Ingredients
Patients can make informed choices when they understand what organic certification means. Organic is basically a labeling term that is found on ingredients that have been produced using mechanical, cultural, and biological practices which support the cycling of on-farm resources, conserve biodiversity, and promote ecological balance.
The final ingredient needs to have followed strict production, labeling standards and handling in order to use the USDA organic certification or make an organic claim. They also need to go through strict organic certification process. A wide variety of factors are addressed by the standards, such as animal raising, soil quality, and pest and weed control. Sewage sludge, synthetic fertilizers, genetic engineering, and irradiation should not have been used.
There has been a dramatic increase in the requests for USDA organic ingredients and flavors in compounding medication with an increase in the organic trend. The AIP team has vast knowledge of USDA organic regulations and ingredient sourcing in creating high quality compounded medications and flavors.
