ALPINAMED processes more than 200 plants into remedies and food supplements. We know the plant characteristics precisely and use the gentlest methods to coax the specific mechanism of action from the medicinal herbs.
From the procurement of the fresh plant to delivery of the finished speciality, we leave nothing to chance. Careful selection of the raw materials is essential. Medicinal herbs grow in natural locations, are harvested at ideal times and are immediately processed fresh.
Origin, cultivation type, harvest time and delivery routes play an important role and are precisely recorded. The plants undergo various test procedures and have to comply with the strictest requirements in terms of quality – for consistently high quality and safety. Hence every plant delivery is tested for freshness, identity, active ingredient content, residue from pesticides and bacteriological purity, before being further processed. Only if the plant material complies with all the requirements will further processing take place. Several laboratories are available with state-of-the-art analytical equipment for these demanding tests. The extraction techniques used are specifically adapted to the particular plant material, while preserving the sensitive active ingredients.
As a manufacturer of natural remedies, ALPINAMED is approved by Swissmedic, the Swiss Health Authorities and operates according to international quality standards. Alpinamed has organic certification as a manufacturing company and is hence authorised to manufacture organic products according to legal guidelines.
