A Vogel Viola tricolor (wild pansy) is a small plant, rarely reaching beyond 6 inches in height. It can be found in the wild in many parts of Europe. It looks similar to the cultivated Pansy plants many people will be familiar with, but has smaller flowers and leaves.
A Vogel Viola tricolor also has another common name, Heartsease, with a long history of use for many different conditions. Today, we know that Viola tricolor contains a special type of molecule known as cyclotides, or circular peptides. These substances are very stable because of their structural shape.
Alfred Vogel was a Swiss pioneer of natural health. Throughout his life, he championed the use of natural remedies in healthcare. Love of nature and the belief in its healing powers were at the heart of his work, and his legacy lives on in the range of herbal remedies which bear his name.
A Vogel is based on one of the core principles of Alfred Vogel - that health requires a holistic approach. A balanced lifestyle, a healthy diet and natural healing products play key roles in maintaining and restoring health.
Alfred Vogel made his preparations from freshly picked plants. The extra effort put into using fresh produce is what still distinguishes A Vogel from its competitors today. A Vogel products are manufactured using methods that are as close to nature as possible, using a sustainable approach to natural resources.
