Plant extracts are com­plex mixtures. Phyto­therapeutic medicines and reme­dies must exhibit the same efficacy, safety and pharma­ceutical quality as chemi­cally produced synthetic medicines. At Schaper & Brümmer, we make a sub­stantial invest­ment in medical research and develop­ment every year.

The emphasis is on scientific optimisation and further develop­ment of existing com­pounds, as well as further explor­ation of what is known about the plants and their mech­anisms of actions.

The most impor­tant goal is to ensure a con­sistently high level of quality, tested in accor­dance with the latest criteria. Further­more, our research and develop­ment activities have been con­ducted in close cooper­ation with universities and other recogn­ised scientific institutions for years.
