Alpha Science Laboratories (ASL) is a leading Canadian manufacturer of superior natural health supplements developed for professional use by Naturopaths, Nutritionists and Chiropractors. Founded in 1997, ASL is a division of Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals.
ASL products are created by our scientific team, headed by our CEO, Dr. Gordon Chang, PhD, in consultation with naturopathic doctors, registered nutritionists, researchers and other scientific community. Dr. Chang’s formulations are manufactured at our 30,000 sq. ft. facility located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. ASL uses only the highest quality and tested ingredients to manufacture safe and effective nutraceuticals.
ASL uses only ingredients where scientific research has proven their efficacy, safety, and for bioactive chemical compounds that have health-promoting, disease-preventing or medicinal properties. The herbal ingredients are procured globally in whole dried form and are subjected to quality and analytical testing. We assure that all the ingredients used in ASL products are free of contaminants.
In our own on-site laboratory, we test all ingredients and formulations before, during, and after manufacturing/packaging to ensure that there are no heavy metals, microbial contaminants or other toxins. We also utilize third party analytical laboratories to evaluate the purity of our products.
Dr. Gordon Chang received his Ph.D. in 1989 from the University of Toronto, Department of Physiology and Institute of Biomedical Engineering where he received a research fellowship award from The Hospital for Sick Children to research cell adhesion, biomaterials and blood material interactions. Later, as a post-doctoral fellow at the department of Clinical Chemistry at Toronto General Hospital Dr. Chang led research in antioxidants, free radical chemistry and oxidative injury.
He founded Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. in 1992, and established Alpha Science Laboratories in 1997.

Best Quality Ingredients
Alpha Science Laboratories uses only ingredients where scientific research has proven the ingredient is reliable and effective for its stated purpose. Dosages are per available scientific research and NNHPD/Health Canada recommendations for dosage.
We source ingredients worldwide, and whether an herb comes from Asia, Canada or the USA, all of our raw herbal ingredients are received in whole (not powdered) dried form so that we can visually verify the herb. We source from a variety of suppliers where we have established long-standing business relationships providing us with raw ingredients that are free of contaminants. All our products are made from all natural ingredients so there may be batch differences in colour and taste. All our capsule products are vegcapTM (hypromellose).
In our own on-site laboratories, we test all ingredients and formulations before, during and after manufacturing and packaging to ensure there are no heavy metals, contaminants or other toxins, and we also utilize third party laboratories to verify the efficacy, safety, consistency and purity of our products.
Alpha Science Laboratories endeavours to put as much helpful information as possible on our labels and in our marketing materials for the benefit of the doctors and our consumers, and to comply with current legislation. Due to space limitations on the label, more product information may be available at our web site at https://www.AlphaScienceLabs.com.
Alpha Science Laboratories sources best quality packaging materials with the environment in mind. Our plastic bottles are 100% recyclable in most communities as we use only PETE #1 and HDPE (high density poly-ethylene) bottles. The durability of our HDPE packaging materials are tested for normal use and storage as well as microbial permeability. We use glass where feasible and caps/lids are recycled/recyclable materials. We recommend consumers reuse and recycle materials where possible as together we can all succeed in reducing waste and our “carbon footprint” and preserve our natural resources.
All products are manufactured on-site and our bottles are sealed both inside the cap and with a tamper proof outer seal for security, and to ensure the freshness of our finished products upon delivery and use.
Product labels and marketing materials are created using vegetable-based inks and recycled or recyclable paper and other material resources whenever possible.
