Alfred Vogel (1902 - 1996) was a tireless researcher, a gifted speaker, a world traveller and a man who understood better than anyone how nature works and heals. His knowledge and skill laid the basis for A.Vogel herbal and healthcare products today.

The complete power of fresh plants

Alfred Vogel maintained that complete effectiveness was only contained in fresh plants.

For this reason, A.Vogel herbal remedies are as fresh as Nature. The plants for A.Vogel’s fresh plant remedies are prepared as soon as possible after harvesting.

This principle applies to organically grown plants as well as to those that have been gathered from the wild.

Numerous analytical examinations and in-vitro tests (laboratory tests) have confirmed that more often than not A.Vogel fresh plant preparations have a higher concentration of active ingredients than conventional products made from equivalent quantities of dried plants.

A very few plants, which will not grow in the Swiss climate, have to be used in their dried state in the absence of suitable alternatives.

The uniqueness of our herbs

The herbs used to produce A.Vogel fresh herb tinctures and fresh herb tincture tablets are grown using a strict organic protocol, mainly in the fertile conditions of Roggwil, Switzerland. This allows the company to exert complete control over the cultivation of plants - from the time of planting through to harvesting. All the company's products are manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) protocols and control. Stringent quality control tests and checks are carried out throughout all the stages of growth and manufacture.

We grow our herbs organically.

  • All plants are cultivated according to the strict guidelines of BIO-SUISSE, i.e. without synthetic fertiliser, insecticides, herbicides or pesticides
  • Our plants are left to grow and mature until they reach their optimum potential
  • One section of each crop is not harvested to allow the seeds to ripen, ensuring that we obtain our own seed stock
