Vogel is a herbal remedy and health food company set up in 1963 by Alfred Vogel, a Swiss naturopath. Nowadays it’s perhaps the most widely recognised and well-trusted herbal supplement company in Europe. The company makes a wide range of herbal tinctures (around 30 sold in the UK), but also foods, teas, topical creams and gels, lozenges, toothpastes and more.
One of the things that makes A. Vogel’s herbal supplements stand out from the crowd is that they’re made with fresh plants, and the majority are liquid tinctures rather than tablets or capsules. This is a traditional way of making herbal medicines. It means that all the natural constituents of the plant are used rather isolating individual components, on the principle of preserving the natural synergy of the plant. It also means that the herbs can be gentler on the body, more easily absorbed and more quickly effective than powders, capsules or tablets. However, A. Vogel also has some options in tablets (such as their famous Echinaforce range) for those who prefer to take supplements in this way.
What’s more, many of the A. Vogel products are now licensed herbal remedies, which means that the quality, safety, and traditional use of the herb and the product itself have been independently evaluated and verified.
Our favourite A. Vogel products include Digestisan – an excellent after-dinner remedy; Dormeasan Valerian-Hops tincture to support sleep; Atrogel – the best arnica gel on the market; and of course the Echinaforce products – still a favourite for relieving symptoms of colds and flu.A.
