Our science


Traditional agricultural methods are not enough to obtain “wild” quality in terms of bioactive plants.

In addition, harvesting wild plants poses a serious threat to species and ecosystems, decreasing the plant stock and impacts biodiversity. In the case of Ginseng, wild botanicals are now fully endangered by over harvesting. 

Offering people the exceptional benefits of medicinal herbs, we grow our unparalleled high-quality plants using a unique technology inspired by vertical farming and hydroponics.

What we offer


Our goal is to cultivate plants with a potency equivalent to the wild plants whilst preserving the Environment. One of our key products is a miracle of Nature: Ginseng, a well-known Asian secret for a healthy mind and body. 

Todays, it is used to help boost energy and the immune system, managing stress and stabilizing blood glucose. Our cultivation processes are inspired by Asian tradition and gives a perfect, highly-bioactive ingredient devoid of solvents, pesticides, mycotoxins, GMO’s.
