Our Medicinal Plants

The Swiss research and development company Alpinia Institute for Life Sciences AG (or Alpinia Institute for short) has been pursuing the study of plants with high therapeutic potential since 2008. The institute houses cutting-edge research and development laboratories and an auditorium for scientific seminars and symposia. At Alpinia Institute, we use millennia-old knowledge to develop extracts from traditional medicinal plants that are then studied and tested in cooperation with other research facilities and universities.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alpinia Institute, we at Alpinia Laudanum GmbH use the institute’s accumulated pharmacological knowledge to develop natural, plant-based, and effective cosmetics and dietary supplements. Currently, our main ingredients are frankincense extract and acacia gum (also known as gum arabic, the dried exudate of the acacia tree). Both plants have been fixtures in the traditional medicines of many cultures for millennia. People have long known about the positive effects of frankincense and acacia gum on the well-being of the human body. Now, using state-of-the-art research and high-quality natural extracts, we make this old knowledge accessible again in a way that protects natural resources and the earth. Our work is sustainable and fair—to nature as well as to the people who make a living cultivating frankincense and gum arabic.

Acacia Senegal

The acacia gum (gum arabic) used in ACAZEN products is obtained from the Acacia Senegal trees native to Africa’s Sahel Region.

02.

High in Fibre

Gum arabic consists mainly of polysaccharides (dietary fibre) that are indigestible to humans. This soluble fibre is used by beneficial intestina intestinal bifidobacteria as an energy source, helping them multiply.

03.

Crafted with Care

Careful preparation and minimal processing of our gum arabic ensure that its natural ingredients and minerals are preserved.

Highest Quality

The Ferlo region in northern Senegal is renowned for its extremely high-quality acacia gum. All our ingredients undergo strict quality control during every stage of production.
