    Why standardisation is so important  

    Standardisation ensures that the extract always contains exactly the same amount of pharmacological active substances - a basic requirement for a constant effect of the finished product and for clinical studies.


    The extraction method is a crucial factor for the composition of the extract. In extracts produced by different extraction methods different compounds may be present in varying concentrations. Therefore, the pharmacological activity of an extract mainly depends on the extraction method used.


    When choosing a herbal supplement brand, remember that you are buying an extract, not a plant. A common misconception is that all products containing the same plant must be the same. Many variables can change according to growing conditions, harvesting and manufacturing differences. In order to control these variables, the extract contained in Pharmaton® Capsules is standardised according to a high quality process.


    To avoid the problems of inconsistent extracts you can buy a brand such as Pharmaton® Capsules, which is manufactured using the standardised Ginseng extract G115®, prepared according to strict guidelines to ensure exact standardisation. You can be assured that the product you take is the same as the one tested in several clinical studies. Pharmaton® Capsules contains the most clinically tested Ginseng extract in the world and has proven safety and efficacy.

    The origins of Ginseng

    Ginseng is a medicinal plant used in medical circles for more than 2,000 years. The origin of the word is Chinese: ‘Jen Shen’ means ‘The power of the earth in human shape’.


    Panax Ginseng is a carefully cultivated natural plant root which, when combined with vitamins and minerals, helps to sustain energy levels and relieve Daily Fatigue. Pharmaton® Capsules contain a special extract of ginseng that is extracted via a unique process used only by Pharmaton. Pharmaton® Capsules are a clinically proven vitamin and mineral formulation to relieve Daily Fatigue.

    What is Panax Ginseng G115® made from?

    G115® is made from the fine rootlets of the plant Panax Ginseng. This delicate plant is cultivated in China and Korea by specialist farmers. It’s grown indoors from the best selected seeds. After 18 months the plant is re-planted outdoors then when it’s five years old it is harvested and dried. Samples of the roots are sent to Pharmaton in Switzerland and the rootlets are tested for a high content of active ingredients, the ginsenosides. If satisfactory, the crop is purchased and the extraction process starts.


    The fine Panax Ginseng rootlets undergo Pharmaton´s unique, low-temperature, extraction process involving more than 20 stages. A precise balance of ginsenosides is created by blending batches so that the finished extract precisely matches a set pattern (standardisation). As a result, every Pharmaton® Capsule contains the same quantity of the same ginsenosides as every other capsule. The special extraction process has never been published, and is used exclusively by Pharmaton®, but it gives you just what you need to help reduce tiredness and Daily Fatigue.

    Sources: meat, eggs, nuts, cereals and seeds.

    Sources: animal flesh (especially liver), oysters, fish, whole grains, nuts, and legumes.

  • Zinc

    Properties: It plays an important role in the immune defense system. It is needed for a healthy skin and to maintain strong bones.


    Sources: oysters, liver, meat, fish, seeds and whole grain cereals.
