Bio-Health, founded 25 years ago, is one of the few truly independent British manufacturers of top quality Herbal Medicines and Vitamin & Mineral dietary supplements. Our Pure-fil herbal, vitamin and mineral capsules are completely additive-free with guaranteed 100% active ingredients – nothing is altered, nothing added, nothing taken away. All of our products are manufactured to strict pharmaceutical standards in premises licensed and inspected regularly by the Department of Health. Unlike many manufacturers, we test them to ensure they conform to the stringent criteria of the British and European Pharmacopoeia and British Herbal Pharmacopoeia. Quality, safety and efficacy are paramount. Our products have been endorsed by such organisations as Action Against Allergy and the Hyperactive Children’s Support Group.
The two-part, hard-shell vegetable cellulose capsules are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. For people who have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules, they may be easily pulled apart and the contents sprinkled onto food or added to a drink.
Our Pure-fil herbal capsules contain powdered organic, wildcrafted or cultivated plant material. They are GM-free and have never been irradiated. All raw material is tested for biological contaminants, pesticide residues and heavy metals.
Our licensed ‘Classic’ and ‘Star’ ranges are selected for their efficacy in treating self-limiting conditions. The formulae comprise remedies possessing specific affinities with the traditional practice of blending herbs. They are manufactured to pharmaceutical standards using the best material available. We also offer a range of lanolin-free herbal ointments to help with a wide range of conditions.
Our range of Pure-fil Vitamin and Mineral capsules are also free from binders, fillers, glidants, sweeteners or any type of additive - each capsule consists only of the supplement itself. The formulations have been assessed by a leading European Biochemist, and we are confident our range is the best available. We don’t believe in high level vitamins or minerals. We do believe in the value of supplements with meaningful amounts of selected nutrients.
We are involved in a number of environmental initiatives and have received several awards in recognition of our achievements in this area. Our Managing Director, Victor Perfitt, was recently awarded an MBE for his contribution to Herbal Medicine.
The Bio-Health team includes a both a medical adviser and Members of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists who are on hand to offer information, advice and support.
