At Botanic Innovations, we live and breathe our mission and values. It may sound lofty and idealistic, but our mission — our cause — is “to help people live healthier lives, naturally.” Our Immuno-Viva Core product is a completely natural yet powerful ally in this work. And we continue to push the boundaries of science as we research ways in which the raw power of nature can help people stay healthy.
In 2002, when we first discovered the antioxidant power and immune support properties of our natural seed oils, we were excited but restrained.* Only after extensive lab testing under the supervision of some of the finest experts in the country were we ready to take our Immuno-Viva products to the public. And we continue testing and improving, because that’s the right thing to do. That’s Botanic Innovations.
A number of different methods are used by various manufacturers to extract oil from plant materials. High-volume oil expeller methods utilize mechanical pressure and friction, generating temperatures of 185° Fahrenheit or higher, while other techniques employ petroleum-based chemical solvents (hexane) or alcohol. Each of these methods causes major physical and chemical changes in the natural botanical oils, particularly to the fragile phyto-chemicals and nutrients, including essential fatty acids. Additionally, some of these harsh processing techniques may leave traces of undesirable chemical residues in the final ingredient.
Botanic Innovations employs NatureFRESH-Cold Press™ technology to process materials under moderately-high pressures and very low temperatures in an inert atmosphere during extraction and bottling to help prevent oxidation. These painstakingly extracted ingredients are truly ‘extra-virgin’ thereby delivering high nutritional value while retaining their natural flavor characteristics. The result is ultra-pure oil with optimal nutritional properties.
Our values dictate our business practices. These are:
- Have integrity in what we say and do.
- Promote only products rooted in science.
- Practice continuous learning and improvement.
- Contribute to health and wellbeing.
- Work well as a team to excel in everything we do.
