Solidago virguarea, also known as Golden Rod, is a herbaceous plant found in temperate countries, often in the natural flora of grassy mountainous areas. The name Solidago means ‘to make whole’. In 15th and 16th Century Europe it was used topically for wound healing but in modern times the main use of Solidago is to help maintain the health of the urinary tract.
The Birch tree (Betula pendula) is known as ‘The Tree of Life’. It grows well in temperate and Nordic climates and its leaves have been used in herbal supplement combinations to aid detox by supporting the body’s natural elimination of toxins and impurites. One of the lesser ingredients in this combination is Restharrow (Ononis spinosa). It is a commonly found in almost all parts of Europe, West Africa and Asia and has been used traditionally to support bladder health. Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is another minor but important ingredient in Solidago complex. The plant is said to resemble a horse’s tail and it grows almost everywhere. Although poisonous to grazing animals when eaten in large quantities it has been used by people from as long ago as the Ancient Romans in the form of a tea.

A Vogel is one of the oldest Herbal Medicine companies, with strong traditions upheld in this modern day herbal company. Started by Alfred Vogel, Alfred was fascinated by nature and herbs. Taught by his father and grandmother he soon acquired a deep respect for the wonders of the natural world. His research led him to spend time amongst indigenous people and to investigate how and why the modern day diseases of civilisation were absent from primitive peoples lives.
This led him to study diet, lifestyle and the remedies these people used. Alfred Vogel led a healthy life and was a skiier until well into his 90s. He died at the age of 94.
The company A.Vogel take science seriously and stand out amongst herbal companies. They have always adopted organic standards and adhere to the stringent standards set out by the Union of Swiss Biological Agricultural Organisations, the Swiss equivalent of the Soil Association. They never test on animals. Vogel said 'I esteem life as sacred'. They believe in a very holistic approach and that everything in the herb should be left as nature designed it, thus choosing to work with the whole plant as much as possible. They also work to GMP standards (Good Manufacturing Practice).
