- Quality comes from paying attention to detail
And we believe that every single raw ingredient in a Lamberts product is as important as the finished product itself. So we are meticulous in the tests we carry out and ensure that every product that is manufactured is subjected to a series of rigorous tests to ensure they meet the specifications given on the label.
Firstly, the raw materials are tested for quality, purity and potency, then samples of products are taken and tested even while the product is still being made and then a final check is carried out on the finished product.
This commitment has enabled us to produce products of a quality that others can only aspire to.
No wonder practitioners pay so much attention to our brand.
- Dosage, Dosage, Dosage
Premium quality products need to provide the correct potency since dosage is the key to success when using nutrition and herbs in clinical practice. You can have selected the right nutrients but get the levels wrong and you won’t get the results you hoped. And whilst you’d be right in thinking that getting the dosage right is a fundamental requirement in practice, it is surprisingly difficult to achieve this by using many of the supplements on the market.
At Lamberts, however, we start with dosage. Lamberts philosophy of healthcare is all about ‘sound’ science - we only develop products that are at the right potency and supported by a valid scientific rationale. Indeed it is the potency of our products that truly sets us apart from other brands and enables practitioners to be able to put their trust in our products.
- Informative and accurate labels
Great products need to be perfectly labelled too and Lamberts has pioneered the accurate labelling of dietary supplements.
Lamberts takes considerable care to use the correct terms for all the ingredients in our products and we do not hesitate to declare everything that is used. What we say on the label is an honest representation of what is in the product.
To be sure that our tablets or capsules contain the active ingredients specified, we know that certain inactive ingredients need to be used. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to produce food supplements without using some inactive ingredients and products whose labels do not show any are in our opinion, either inaccurately made or inaccurately labelled.

OUR GINKGO COMES OUT TOP IN INDEPENDENT ANALYSIS
It is the flavonglycosides that are the yardstick for potency, with a content of 24% flavonglycosides being the standardised figure, and the level used in clinical studies.
In a recent survey, a staggering 8 out of the 12 UK retail brands failed to meet the 24% flavonglycosides figure (even though their label claims say differently!).
Lamberts® Ginkgo 6000mg passed with flying colours, leaving us voted the best value for money product in terms of quality and price!
Each tablet contains a concentrated extract, standardised at 28.8mg (24%) flavonglycosides. What’s more, you’ll find our label quotes another group of compounds, ‘terpenes’ the most important of which are the ginkgolides and bilobalides. Whilst not analysed in the recent analysis, these have important properties with regard to circulation and ours contain 7.2mg per tablet.
