Featured Product: PelaPower ™

With over 16 years experience of supplying Pelargonium sidoides to our customers around the world we have come to understand this powerful plant medicine better than almost anyone. Our expertise has led us to the development of a standardized extract of pelargonium which is poised to unlock the significant healing potential of this plant for the world of natural, plant-based medicines.

PelaPower ™ is a pelargonium sidoides standardised dry powder extract which has been made according to the principles of the EMA monograph. By making an equivalent extract that complies with the EMA guidelines our customers can create products that enable them to make health claims of pelargonium medicines recognised in the pharmacopoeia.

Technical features:
– Dry extract, (DER 4-25:1)
– Extraction solvent ethanol 11% (m/m)
– 100% native; free of maltodextrin (sugar-free)
– Water soluble extract 

Our process: The raw material is first tested as per the European Pharmacopoeia specification. We then produce a liquid extract as per EMA monograph DER 1:8-10 extraction using 11% ethanol. This is vacuum oven-dried to yield a 100% native extract as EMA monograph DER 4-25:1 extraction.

We test the following components:
– Scopoletin (batch specific)
– Umckalin (batch specific)
– Gallic acids (batch specific)

Standardization:  The 100% native extract is optionally standardised to your specification for Umckalin using microcrystalline cellulose which is a sugar-free and chemically inactive excipient.

Afrigetics is a vertically integrated Pelargonium supplier and thus controls harvesting, drying, processing and extraction from start to finish. This means we have the ability to control starting Umckalin content of the raw material and thus determine an accurate outcome of active content in our extract as well as control raw material cost.

Dosage guidelines: If standardised to 1100ppm Umckalin the extract should be included at 20mg per serving, 3 times per day, to deliver the EMA specified 67,5ug Umckalin per day.

Pelargonium sidoides Freeze-Dried Powder

Product Description

Features

An ultrasonic extraction of pelargonium which has been freeze-dried. The benefits of this product are that it is solvent-free and the antioxidant properties of the plant are preserved by freeze-drying. This extract also contains the whole plant so it has a wider spectrum of all actives present in the pelargonium plant. This powder can be used as a starting material for extractions in order to produce greater yields of active ingredient due to the fact that it is standardized for NLT 200ppm umckalin and because the cells have been ruptured by ultrasonic extraction which means that the actives are more easily drawn out of the plant material during extraction. It can also be used as an ingredient in powder forumlations or pressed into a tablet or filled in a capsule.
