Full Spectrum Approach™
Quality, Effectiveness & Safety
With a wide
range of natural remedies and treatments
on the market today, we understand that
it can sometimes be difficult to make
sense of it all. We also know that since
there is no standardization in the herbal
industry, there is no guarantee as to
the consistency, safety or potency
of the herbal remedies you buy.
That is until
All of our
remedies are developed using the Full
Spectrum Approach (FSA) to ensure you
get the quality, potency and protection
you deserve. Our Full Spectrum
Approach consists of a set
of standards and processes that combine
wild crafted herbs, cGMP manufacturing
and a full spectrum extraction method.
Our 3 Point
The first step in formulating a new
remedy is always determining a customer’s
needs and to match them with natural
ingredients that have proven effectiveness.
In doing so, we draw on a vast body
of documented knowledge about traditional
medicine, as well as more recent clinical
research into herbal remedies and proven
homeopathic ingredients. Together with
a team of natural health experts, the
final formulations are compiled and
2. Raw Material Quality &
All of the raw ingredients we use in
our remedies are purchased from reputable
suppliers and our ingredients are organically
grown whenever possible.
We also ensure that wild-crafted herbs
are grown far away from sources of pollution
and electricity pylons, and that their
presence does not compromise the integrity
and balance of their environment.
All of our raw ingredients are purchased
with an accompanying Certificate of
Analysis. On receipt, they go into quarantine
until further in-house tests are completed
and released by our responsible pharmacists,
ensuring that the herbs are fresh and
not contaminated by any impure substances
(e.g. heavy metals or bacterial infections).
We manufacture all our remedies
in an FDA registered facility under
sterile conditions to ensure that no
All our remedies are manufactured in-house
under the supervision of our expert
team and none are brought in from elsewhere.
This enables us to have full control
over quality and safety.
All of our products are then manufactured
according to the principles of GMP (Good
Manufacturing Practice) ensuring the
consistency, safety and effectiveness
of our remedies.
Method vs. 'Standardized' Extracts
have heard the term 'standardized' extract
used in relation to herbal remedies,
but do you know what this means?
Many pharmaceutical companies have begun
manufacturing herbal remedies using
a process of extraction whereby harsh
chemicals are employed to extract
the active ingredients of medicinal
You will recognize these extracts by
the usage of the words 'standardized'
extract on the labels. This method of
manufacturing is often cited as being
more scientific and able to produce
a superior product with controlled and
guaranteed amounts of active ingredients
in each product.
Contrary to these claims, this
process is not approved by
the manufacturers of holistic medicines.
One of the reasons is that the process
of extracting so-called 'active ingredients'
and isolating them from the rest of
the herb is one that has resulted
in an increase in side effects,
as the herb in this way loses its natural
ability to protect against side effects.
In addition, many manufacturers use
all parts of the plants to create standardized
extracts, whereas herbalists know that
only certain parts of some herbs should
In the case of Ginkgo Biloba, for example,
it is well known that the seeds of this
plant are poisonous and can cause seizures
and that only the leaves should be used.
Standardized extracts of Ginkgo Biloba
have been associated with the risk of
seizure in some trials.
The most recent example of the dangers
of using this manufacturing process
includes the development of liver toxicity
from using Kava Kava extract, an herb
which has been safely used for hundreds
It must also be added that this process
of extraction requires the use
of harsh chemicals and solvents, traces
of which are difficult to remove completely
from the final product.
To us, it makes little sense for companies
to go the natural route, while being
unable to guarantee that their product
is free of contamination with chemicals
known to be harmful to health!
Unlike many so-called natural remedies
manufactured according to the methods
described above, we avoid standardized
extracts completely and use the Full
Spectrum method of extraction,
which is recommended by all the authoritative
Materia Medica dealing with herbal medicine.
This helps us to maintain the
integrity, balance and therapeutic effect
of herbs with the least
risk of side effects or harm
to your health!
