The medicinal properties of plants can be attributed to their unique phytochemistry or pool of secondary metabolism. These secondary metabolites or natural compounds are low weight molecular compounds which have ecological functions and include Polyphenols, Flavonoid Pigments, Essential Oils and Alkaloids to name but a few. Many of these compounds and the plant extracts containing them provide a rich source of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).
Over 50% of all drugs utilised by man can be traced to natural product research and the potential of herbal preparations in the production of APIs in the modern world remains significant. Through a robust and compliant supply chain we still source appropriate raw materials worldwide, blending traditional knowledge with operational and scientific expertise to successfully deliver your project.
