Plants work best as medicine when they are kept whole, leaving cellulose, vitamins, minerals and other buffering components intact. When you try to extract one active ingredient from a plant, you miss the big picture.

Pharma Botanica, a botanical remedies company aimed at treating the cause of health issues, rather than just the symptoms, is bringing its Liver Mate, MSM Alive and Stress Guard herbal supplements to health and wellness e-commerce site StackedNutrition.com.
Liver Mate treats the liver and gallbladder to improve digestive function; MSM Alive provides Methyl Sulfonyl Methanel and other anti-inflammatory herbs that provide energy, joint mobility and increased immune system support; and Stress Guard helps keep the body calm and relaxed to improve sleep. Pharma Botanica continues to refine its nutraceutical products, offering remedies for many different health issues.
“Our products are truly all natural,” Pharma Botanica co-founder Melissa Gribble said. “We only use the entirety of medicinal plants and herbs, rather than extracts. The plants and herbs are slowly dried, crushed and encapsulated without adding any synthetic chemicals or agents.”
Pharma Botanica gets its philosophy to use whole plants from the idea that plants and humans share vast amounts of DNA and biological components. The company believes different chemicals inside plants potentiate the active chemicals isolated by other companies. And as such, less active ingredients are needed in whole-plant based medicine when compared to isolated chemicals alone.
“Plants work best as medicine when they are kept whole, leaving cellulose, vitamins, minerals and other buffering components intact,” Melissa Gribble said. “When you try to extract one active ingredient from a plant, you miss the big picture. The extracted ingredients become less bioavailable, and important chemicals are left out of the final product. Avoid dangerous concentrations of chemicals by using whole plants and herbs.”
Husband and wife Melissa and Paul Gribble co-founded Pharma Botanica in Australia in 1996 to produce more effective herbal supplements that take from the entirety of plants, rather than extracting certain chemicals. Whole botanicals and herbal medicines continue to be one of the fastest-growing supplement categories in the United States.
The company also offers several other supplements on its website. Enhancer was the first Pharma Botanica product, augmenting female hormonal imbalances to relieve pre-menstrual tension, menstrual cramps, dysmenorrhea, menopause, acne and more. Additional supplements include Alleraide for allergy sufferers; Bones & Teeth for calcium absorption and kidney support; Eyes Bright for eye health; Heart Mate for cardiovascular health; Memory Mate for improved cognitive function and blood circulation; and Stop Snoring Spray for better breathing.
