From plant to package — let us take you on our journey
How you get from a natural plant to a finished product doesn’t really matter, does it? All that really matters is that it’s been shown to work, right?
Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. Growth, cultivation, extraction and manufacturing processes are key to how well the final natural healthcare product works.
Getting the process just right could mean the difference between feeling more alert after just a few doses of KeenMind,® or taking a Bacopa product for months and feeling no better.
When you think about just how much the process matters, it becomes a whole lot more interesting!
Six crucial steps and why they all matter
Chardonnay or shiraz?
Regardless of whether you enjoy a glass of wine, you’ll know that every wine drinker has a preference. And that’s because the specific type of grape that a wine is made from has a huge impact on its flavour. Just like grape varieties, not all plant species used to make natural healthcare products are the same. That’s why all Flordis natural healthcare products are made from plant species that have a proven history of success.
Sun or snow?
As much as we might like to, we can’t control the weather to suit ourselves. And like us, plants behave differently in different climates and conditions. Many factors can affect the growth and composition of a plant, so Flordis ingredients are grown in carefully monitored and selected environments, with just the right conditions for optimal growth, replicated for every batch. Plus the levels of active compounds within a plant will change over their growing season, so the time of year that we harvest our plants is essential.
Root or leaf?
In every plant, different parts can contain very different components. When different vegetable plants are harvested, some are collected for their roots or leaves, and others are gathered for their stems, flowers or fruits. This kind of selection is also critical when producing a natural healthcare product , because the very specific components that have an effect on the body might be present only in one part of the plant, or in all of it. It varies from plant to plant. So Flordis takes great care to always use the exact part of the plant that has been proven to have beneficial effects on the body.
Exact or extract?
Both! Flordis uses extraction processes that are designed to make sure that every batch of our natural healthcare product has the exact component, or mix of components, that has been proven to be effective. We do this by using carefully selected liquids (known as solvents) that draw out extracts containing consistent amounts of active ingredients. By taking care to get the same level of success in each finished product, it means that, from batch to batch, you can be assured that you are getting the same ingredients and consistent benefits.
Plane or car?
A lot can happen when you travel from A to B, and Flordis has put a lot of thought into this. We never stop caring about our products, so we’ve organized strict controls for storing and transporting our finished products. This means that every pack gets to you in a high quality condition — just like when it left our premises.
Science or fiction?
There’s no doubt that fiction can be fun. But when it’s fact that you need, science is what you can rely on. All Flordis natural healthcare products undergo carefully conducted clinical trials to ensure that they deliver health benefits. This means that the claims you see on our packs and on our website have been objectively and scientifically proven.
