Revolutionising Plant Medicine: A Leap Towards Sustainability and Potency

Updated: Apr 9

In the pursuit of wellness, the fusion of ancient wisdom with modern science has always been a cornerstone. However, NAQED is not just walking this path; it's paving a new one with groundbreaking advancements in bioactive yield that are redefining the future of plant-based medicines and supplements. This isn't just about enhancing health benefits; it's a stride towards environmental sustainability, economic efficiency, and a leap into what we might call "modern herbalism."


The Breakthrough: A 300% to 400% Leap in Bioactive Yield

At the heart of this revolution lies a trio of innovative strategies:

  • Proprietary Tissue Culture Recipes: A technique that nudges plants towards producing more secondary metabolites, essentially the compounds responsible for the bioactive effects.

  • Agronomic Best Practices: Coupled with a sprinkle of secret insights, these practices ensure that the when, how, and where of planting contribute to unparalleled bioactive potency.

  • Meticulous Processing: A multistep technique fine-tuned to preserve and enhance the bioactive compounds.

The Proof: Turmeric Like Never Before

NAQED's method has been put to the test with turmeric, achieving a 400% improvement in bioactives compared to global benchmarks. This potent powder has paved the way for high-quality, therapeutic-grade products, such as capsules enhanced merely with some pepper for bioavailability. This direct use of raw material not only escalates quality and bioactive content but also slashes processing efforts and costs by fourfold.

Beyond Health: A Ripple Effect of Benefits from Plant Medicine

Environmental Milestones

This advancement heralds an 80% reduction in emissions and energy use. By necessitating less raw material, it significantly diminishes the environmental footprint associated with growing, harvesting, and processing. The impact extends to water usage and overall carbon footprint, each reduced fourfold, illustrating a sustainable future in practice.

Economic and Supply Chain Advantages

Producers and consumers stand to benefit immensely. Consumers gain access to therapeutic-grade, fully traceable, and potent products. Producers, on the other hand, enjoy operational efficiency, more stable and consistent operations, and the luxury of simplicity in the supply chain. Focusing on local production for Australian partners, NAQED exemplifies how a shorter, simpler supply chain not only ensures quality but fosters sovereign value chains resilient to global market fluctuations.

Quality, Safety, and Regulatory Excellence

With rigorous testing and standardisation, quality and safety are paramount. Adjustments in dosing or raw material usage are straightforward, ensuring that consumers receive the intended benefits without compromise. Furthermore, NAQED advocates for more stringent regulation, aspiring to distinguish its high-quality, traceable, Australian products within a separate category recognised for superior standards.

Future of Plant Medicine: Pioneering Modern Herbalism

Envisioning the future, NAQED stands at the forefront of what could be termed "modern herbalism," emphasising less processing and more natural, bioactive-rich products. This approach not only caters to a growing demand for high-quality, effective plant-based medicines but also champions the return of high-end production to Australia. By mitigating high labor costs, this innovative method promises a resurgence of local, sovereign value chains, setting a new standard in the industry.

NAQED: Trailblazing the Future

As NAQED continues to trailblaze, it not only demonstrates the feasibility of these advancements but also scales them for both domestic and global markets. This commitment to innovation, sustainability, and quality underscores a pivotal shift towards a more responsible and efficient approach to plant-based medicine production.

In Conclusion

NAQED's journey is more than just about enhancing the potency of plant-based medicines; it's about setting a new paradigm for sustainability, economic efficiency, and quality in the wellness industry. It's a testament to the power of innovative thinking and a commitment to not just meeting but exceeding standards in health, environmental stewardship, and regulatory compliance.
