100 years young, Salus® continues to blend well being, sustainability, tradition, and innovation. A pioneer in the world of natural health care is celebrating an impressive milestone— 2016 marks Salus’ one hundredth year of embracing and promoting health, naturally and sustainably.
In 1916, Dr. Otto Greither, a physician and naturalist, began his journey creating natural health solutions. The goal? Combine health and nature in a way that uncompromisingly served both. A century later Dr. Greither’s 90-year-old son remains at the company’s helm, continuing to steer Salus® along the same course. Today, the company continues to harness and heal with the power of nature, while prioritizing environmental stewardship. It’s this balance that makes Salus’ 1500 products, from wellness tonics to herbal teas, and everything in between, truly unique. The company combines traditional knowledge with modern scientific techniques, truly setting the standard for a responsible approach toward health and the planet, while embracing the past and the future simultaneously.
Take Floradix®, for example. This vegetarian iron and vitamin supplement fights fatigue and has helped women around the world reclaim their energy.* Floradix® contains only carefully selected plants and ingredients, chosen for their effectiveness and digestibility, including carrots and spinach, among others, and the juices of pears, red grapes, and other nutrient-rich fruits. Yet the simplicity of the components in this delicious tonic belies its efficacy—each 10 mL dose contains 10 mg of iron, making it one of the best sources available to fight back against this common deficiency.
Striving for the highest standards of product quality and environmental stewardship, Salus® has committed to several strict guidelines, which meet and exceed all European pharmaceutical production standards. These include using organic farming practices, sourcing many of the herbs from their own organic farms in Chile, and excluding genetically modified ingredients, artificial colours and preservatives. Salus® also tests all raw herbs for pesticides, heavy metals, and other residues accepting only those that test far below legal requirements.
As a result of these and other company initiatives, Salus® was the first health food company to receive certification from the European Community’s ”Eco-Audit Directive”, while also being recognized as a “Climate Protection Company” for its leading role in climate protection and energy efficiency.
Now distributed in 60 countries around the world, Salus’ products continue to be a force in the world of natural medicine. Despite the many accomplishments of the past century, the company shows no signs of slowing down, while always staying true to its founding principle, in both how it works for people and the planet: health comes first.
