The philosophy of herbal medicine is based on the principle that medication should be gentle and as natural as possible. Herbs present a complete array of complicated chemical substances that over thousands of years have been found to have healing qualities for humans.
Today, in our scientifically demanding society, phytotherapy is again valued. More and more people are taking time to find out about herbal medicine and its uses for everyday disorders.
Bio-Health’s Classic Herbal Medicines are not synthetically produced. They offer quality and purity to those seeking a more natural way to look after their health and well being.The generic herbal products in this range are selected for their efficacy in treating self limiting conditions. All Bio-Health formulae comprise remedies possessing specific affinities with the traditional practice of blending herbs - selecting roots, seeds, barks and other parts of plants.
They are manufactured to pharmaceutical standards, of the best material available and offer effectiveness to the user.
Bio-Health Ltd was incorporated in 1981 for the purpose of initiating a range of vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements totally free from additives.
There was then, as now, serious concern that many ingredients, not always disclosed on the labels, were being widely used in the manufacture of tablets being offered as "health foods". Health food retailers and their customers were becoming increasingly subject to commercial exploitation in an industry where pharmaceutical contract manufacturers, using mass-production methods, and who did not share the health food philosophy, became suppliers of nutritional supplements.
With the assistance of a major capsule manufacturer and following months of research and development, methods were devised for successfully filling vitamin, mineral and herbal formulations entirely without additives. The chosen form, a two piece hard gelatine shell capsule, was found much more suitable that the soft gelatine form which requires plasticisers and are prone to fungal and bacterial proliferation owing to high moisture content. Hard shell gelatine capsules, made entirely from highly purified gelatine, proved ideal for filling with uncompressed powders. However, vegetarians and vegans were unhappy to be using a product based on animal products. Therefore further research was undertaken to establish whether vegetable-based capsules could be used with the same results. Bio-Health are now delighted to say that all products in the pure-fil range now use vegetable-based capsules. The only exceptions are Evening Primrose Oil which remains in gelatine capsules, and Raspberry Leaf which is in tablet form.
The "Pure-fil" range of products was launched at the end of 1981 and extended to cover a wide selection of herbs in 1996, and the registered Trade Mark appears on every Bio-Health product. This is a guarantee that it is totally free from additives and of the highest quality. "Pure-fil" products have particular appeal to those averse to chemical additives in supplements and have allergic reactions to them. They are recommended by the Hyperactive Children's Society and approved by Action Against Allergy.
Bio-Health maintain a conscientious approach to the products they manufacture and now market plant ointments and licensed herbal medicinal products of the highest and finest quality, compatible with genuine holistic and "healthfood" principles.
