Are we all aware of what phytochemicals are? Perhaps not. For the record, they are any of various biologically active compounds found in plants. And AlchemLife – a division of its parent company, Alchem International – is a pioneer in this field.

Over 75 years ago the company began its charge towards providing the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and nutraceutical industries with the finest grade of plant-derived APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients). And ever since, AlchemLife has employed proprietary Phytoadvance technology to produce the purest and most effective natural ingredients available. Ancient traditional medicine is married with contemporary medicinal trends and the latest extraction science to deliver product formulations rich in active plant phytonutrients, creating naturally beneficial health solutions.

Sourcing, Extraction and Formulation

As you’d expect, sourcing of raw materials and ingredients is a crucial first step. It begins with combining the best from nature with the company’s extensive knowledge of traditional medicine. Beyond this is extraction: preserving the benefits of the “harvest”, which is achieved through carefully developed processing and extraction techniques. The result? The benefit of the whole plant is maintained.

It’s imperative that these benefits are passed on to the recipient upon ingestion. AlchemLife ensures this by employing technologies and delivery systems with synergistic or complementary combinations of active plant ingredients, selected increase efficacy through ease of use and bioavailability.

Proof

AlchemLife is researched, designed and backed by peer-reviewed clinical studies and extensive consumer testing. One of the company’s hero products, AlchemLife FlexiQule is a supplement designed to support joint mobility and flexibility thanks to its unique blend of concentrated Indian Frankincense (Boswellia Phytoextract) and Ginger. We put it through its paces to see if we noticed any real-world benefits.

A little background first: FlexiQule is a clinically-tested herbal joint supplement based on 100% natural active ingredients. And as previously mentioned, is designed to support normal joint function mobility and flexibility. It can also help relieve those suffering from joint pains. I’d been suffering with a sore hip – a problem caused indirectly from protecting a damaged knee – so I was keen to benefit from FlexiQule’s promises. To test the product, I took two capsules daily, one in the morning and one in the evening with a meal and a glass of water, for four weeks.

I’m all for natural ingredients in skincare products, but I have to say i’m a little more sceptical when it comes to supplements. This is likely due to a lack of knowledge in the subject area. But owing to my long suffering hip pain, this project was appropriate – plus I’ll try anything once. I have to say that after the four-week period I was pleasantly surprised. My body felt less stiff, more flexible and generally more mobile. And, crucially for me, there was less pain in my hip joint. Quite something.

Conclusion

After early scepticism, extensive research into AlchemLife allayed my fears about this natural supplement brand. It has a long and illustrious history in this field that’s backed by in-depth clinical trials and research. Ultimately, a product I’d never normally try truly helped improve my overall health. So, hats of to AlchemLife – and, of course, Mother Nature. Maybe she really does hold all the answers. Visit alchemlife.com for more information and to buy, or LloydsPharmacy to buy in store.
