When I founded this company in 1995, I named it Phyto-Technologies
because I envisioned it to be an herbal technology company. I
am proud that it has achieved that status. Phyto-Tech was
created to manufacture and support products I had formulated for our
clients so that I could assure their safety and quality.
In the herbal field, 'technology' has come to mean using advanced
scientific technology to develop new drugs from plants. For
us, at Phyto-Tech, it means utilizing appropriate science
combined with traditional wisdom to correctly identify and
characterize herbs and to verify their safety and efficacy, leading
to the production of safe and effective modern herbal formulas that
retain their traditionally well-known and well-documented benefits.
Our ultimate goal is to develop and refine this technology so that
it can be used by manufacturers worldwide to produce true dietary
supplements or alternative medicines (not modern drugs like
ephedrine, synephrine, huperzine A, or caffeine, whose only
connection to 'alternative' is the herbs used as raw materials in
their production). As one of a handful of non-academic
institutions that have been awarded grants by the U.S. National
Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine to conduct
herb research, we have developed new
technologies in herb identification and quality control in the form
of RBRMs™, which will help speed up
our progress towards achieving our goal.
We could not have come this far without the steadfast support of our
clients, friends and associates, for which I am extremely grateful.
And, as one of a group of like-minded people whose main goal in this
business is to help improve people's health, I want to assure them
that I will continue to strive to earn their trust and support.
