Wellness Hub May 2016 Why Australian vitamins are the best in the world Swisse May 16, 2016 Share By the time a Swisse complementary medicine product becomes available to consumers, it has undergone over 300 tests through its development cycle. What counts in this category? Medicinal products with ingredients like herbs, vitamins, minerals and nutritional supplements. PUT TO THE TEST This posse of health products is regulated under the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990, which gives everything from the raw materials to the final product a rigorous review. In fact, Australian vitamin companies must hold documentary evidence that the medicine or its active ingredient (think St Mary’s thistle, chaste berry, echinacea, vitamins and minerals) have either been scientifically and clinically proven and/or traditionally used for at least three generations (that’s 75 years or more by TGA standards.) PREMIUM AND TRUSTED What this means for Australian consumers is you’re getting quality products produced in TGA-certified facilities. It’s a different story in the US, where dietary supplements don’t come under the same approval process. So, like the world’s appetite for our agriculture exports, it’s time to shout out about Australia’s other unrivalled industry. THE SCIENCE OF SUPPLEMENTS This science of supplements is taken seriously at Swisse, which is why we list all the scientific evidence that supports the efficacy of our products and ingredients on our website for all to see. Swisse is the only Australian wellness company to do so. Visit the “Science” tab on any of our therapeutic product pages. Learn more about the science of Swisse and our active ingredients.
