Throughout the years, the HealthAid philosophy has remained the same: to provide a range of products that are carefully researched and nutritionally balanced and which help to supplement the many and varied dietary needs of the whole community. Many modern lifestyles involve an unhealthy dependence on highly refined or processed foods; busy schedules, skipped meals, everyday stress and unhealthy environments and also take their toll on people's health. HealthAid is committed to maintain an innovative and creative approach to its products, many of which reflect the latest research in the field of nutrition and health. The special and individual needs of children, young people, the elderly, pregnant and lactating women, menopausal women, mature males, athletes, busy executives as well as many other lifestyles are all fully catered for by the HealthAid range.
All HealthAid herbals are produced using highest quality wildcrafted herbs. Because botanical extracts are natural, they can vary in their composition due to various factors such as soil type, weather conditions and method of planting. To overcome this problem, HealthAid uses standardised extracts in its
herbals. Standardisation involves the application of stringent quality control measures at every stage of the production process to ensure that the finished herbal product contains a known and guaranteed potency of the key components present in the plant.
However, as it is known that the active components of certain herbs (such as Hypericin in St Johns Wort) work synergistically with the rest of the chemical make up of the plant, many HealthAid herbals contain not only a standardised extract but also a powdered extract of the whole herb for maximum benefit.
Tablets and capsules are a convenient and portable way of enjoying the benefits of herbs. They can also be useful as some herbs have a particularly bitter taste when taken in the form of liquid extracts.
