About UsIn the Beginning
The profession of pharmacy was founded in the art and science of compounding medications. It dates back to medieval times with priests, monks and medicine men.
Providing safer, all-natural alternatives to conventional pharmaceuticals has always been our primary goal as was helping a young boy named Michael, who was diagnosed with autism and losing a little part of himself each day. As many parents did at the time, Michael’s parents succumbed to conventional medicine to treat his condition. They were desperate to improve the quality of his life. But just the opposite happened as the drug’s side effects wreaked havoc on his body, robbing him of his overall well being.
Our plight to help children like Michael helped set the stage for future developments as we later worked with a formidable medical team to formulate cardio-vascular products. This was the genesis of Vascure Natural. Now over 20 years later, we’re happy to say that Michael has graduated high school and thriving as a healthy 21-year-old. And we owe that all to a talented and knowledgeable medical team who has worked hard to help develop the purist, most effective pharmaceutical alternatives without the harmful additives or resulting side effects. These products consisted of Super Omega 3, derived from fish oil; our energy-boosting Cellular Energy Support; our cardiovascular powerhouse, Coenzyme 10; and our immunity-supportive Vitamin D. The team who has more than 60 years of combined pharmaceutical experience discovered a way to make a profound change in the health of others like you who have tried our products. Using plant-based ingredients high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, we have been successful in changing the face of medicine one nutrient at a time…and at a lower cost.
Now we’re asking you to take the leap of faith again. As you know, in an effort to grow and help more customers we encountered a major setback several months ago. But our commitment to sharing our viable nutrients has continued to push us forward, and we’re happy to report that we’re back on track and ready to grow again. We are joining forces with an established leader in the field known as Central Compounding Center in Farmingdale, NJ. This new partnership will enable us to not only restart our business but also continue to make our products locally in New Jersey.
But we need your help, and in turn we will help you stay healthy. Rest assured, our products haven’t changed nor has our guarantee that they are formulated with the very best, cardiovascular-friendly nutrients that will bolster your health and improve the quality of life for you and your family. We also invite you to stop into the Compounding Center pharmacy at 1306 Route 33, Unit 4 in Farmingdale, NJ, for a free consultation. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Central Compounding Pharmacy
Compounding medications are essential to providing appropriate care to many patients. By individualizing medication therapy for specific patients needs, the prescriber, patient and pharmacist develop the most appropriate medication plan for the patient, expanding the solution beyond commercially available products and this enhances the individualized patient care.
Specialization first occurred in the early 9th century in the civilized world around Baghdad.
Over time, it gradually spread to Europe as alchemy evolved into chemistry as doctors began to abandon beliefs that were not demonstratable in the physical world.
During this time, doctors began prescribing medications to patients. Pharmacists then began compounding these prescriptions and producing them in mass quantities for general sales. It was not until the 19th century that there was a distinct difference between the pharmacist as a compounder of medications and physician as a therapist.
In the 1930’s and 1940’s, approximately 60 percent of all medications dispensed were compounded. Then at the beginning of the 1950’s, with the creation of commercial drug manufacturers, compounding declined. It was during this time that a pharmacist known as a compounder of apothecary, became known as a dispenser of manufactured drugs. In the 1980’s and now, patients and doctors are realizing the need for specific doses and customized medications.
Today, almost 45,000 compounded dosage forms are dispensed each day. The 1990’s, even with the popularity of compounding growing again, only a few specialized pharmacists can known as a compounder or apothecary, because this technique was forgotten by most.
With more than 80 years of combined compounding experience, the pharmacists of Central Compounding Pharmacy believe in proactive solutions to restore health and wellness.
