1. A Pioneering Vision of Herbal Therapy
"MediHerb was born out of my desire for efficacious herbal therapy. This remains the driving force behind every aspect of the company from raw material sourcing, manufacturing and quality assurance under pharmaceutical standards through to our world class education programs. I am proud and grateful to be associated with a company that provides such unparalleled support for the profession."
2. Total Commitment to Quality
The philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner once said, "For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure. I believe that there is a healing potential locked inside plants which is integral with their evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to learn to tap this wonderful gift of Nature."
In the words of MediHerb's Co-Founder, Professor Kerry Bone: "Our passion at MediHerb is to unlock the healing power of plants by combining the time-honored wisdom of traditional knowledge with sound clinical experience and the rigor of scientific research. This quest can only be attained by the total commitment to quality and continuous improvement, which permeates every aspect of our endeavors."
3. Redefining Quality
MediHerb's commitment to quality is evidenced in every aspect of our business, from the rigorous sourcing and testing of herbs and the in-depth research and development of herb active constituents and therapeutic applications, to the development of manufacturing and extraction processes that have revolutionized the herbal products industry. For over 25 years, MediHerb has not only demonstrated an unwavering commitment to quality in herbal products, we have redefined it. We believe that our approach to quality sets a standard for herbal products that is unsurpassed in the world today.
4. Quality Issues with Herbs
Working with herbs to consistently manufacture high quality products is not easy as plants are naturally complex and the quality of a finished product can vary enormously, presenting MediHerb with continual challenges. These challenges are numerous, and include the inherent biological and chemical variability of herbs, the influences on quality of growing, harvesting, drying and storage, extraction of the herb, stability and the ultimate problem of defining quality in a meaningful way.
Put simply not all herbal products are the same
Not all herbs contain the same levels of active constituents. Not all herbs are grown or harvested or dried or stored in the same way. Not all herb growers', suppliers', or manufacturers' standards are the same and not all methods to determine quality are the same.
I believe that by recommending MediHerb you are not only giving the best possible products to your patients, you are also investing in the future of natural medicine."
Professor Kerry Bone, MediHerb Co-Founder and Director of Research & Development
Who and what is Hope Science?
Hope Science is a unique, natural products company. We do not offer an entire line of supplements like many companies, rather only a few select products supported by scientific studies and trials.
Founder and CEO, Dr. Vanderlinden, had a patient who had three back surgeries and was still in constant agony. His pain was unbearable. During a clinic visit, Dr. Vanderlinden rubbed some Esterified Fatty Acid Complex (EFAC) Pain Cream on this patient’s back. Within minutes his pain began to subside and the sufferer’s eyes sparkled. “I actually have hope again,” the man gleefully stated. Hence, the company’s name was born: Hope Science.
Dr. Vanderlinden’s primary inspiration for natural medicine, and subsequently natural products, was his mother, who had terminal cancer and was given only a few months to live. She survived the disease by using natural medicine instead of the typical allopathic treatment and chemical-based drugs.
We believe that at the very core of medicine should be hope. People with health challenges always hope to get better, but need scientifically proven products, hence our name: Hope Science.
The Probiotic Leader
1. Highest quality
Klaire Labs® uses only the purest and highest-quality probiotic ingredients available. All probiotics used in our formulations have been thoroughly researched, documented, and banked in recognized microbial culture collections.
2. Highest viability
Probiotics are living organisms that can be degraded by acid, bile salts, and digestive enzymes. InTactic®, the proprietary delivery technology used in our Ther-Biotic® capsules and selected powder formulations, protects probiotic strains from stomach acid and delivers significantly more live organisms than unprotected probiotic formulations.
Our probiotics are guaranteed to be free of common allergens, preservatives, binders, and fillers, including gluten and dairy proteins. While almost all other probiotics contain corn-, wheat-, or rice-based maltodextrin, Klaire Labs® uses either a chicory-derived inulin base that helps support the growth of friendly bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract or purified cellulose. Only Kosher-certified vegetarian capsules are used.
4. Manufactured to the highest standards
Our probiotic formulations are manufactured and packaged at a state-of-the-art, highest standards GMP-compliant facility, where filtered air systems and a humidity and temperature controlled environment help ensure product stability and purity.
5. Laboratory analysis
Probiotics are sensitive to handling, transport, and storage. Our rigorous testing program monitors stability throughout all manufacturing stages. All probiotic raw materials for every batch and each finished product undergo independent laboratory analysis for verification of purity and stated potency.
6. Guaranteed potency
Routine inclusion of higher quantities of microorganisms than stated on our labels coupled with refrigerated storage and temperature-control packs used during shipping ensure that our products, when properly stored and refrigerated, will retain their stated potency for at least one year from the date of manufacture.
7. Extensive choice
Our extensive line of probiotics gives physicians the flexibility to select the right product for individual patient needs. From our ultra-high potency Ther-Biotic® formulations to our Baseline Balance formulations, Klaire Labs® probiotics are designed to deliver broad-based or targeted intestinal support.
