Traceability is not just of major importance for us here at Sibelius, but it is also a growing trend amongst consumers. From high-quality sources and processes to fair and responsible supply chains, understanding the steps our extracts take from field to consumer is a part of our key quality processes.
FIRST THINGS FIRST: INTRODUCING SAGE
Our Sibelius™: Sage (aka the king of botanicals) is our branded, scientifically evidenced and clinically proven dried sage extract, specially developed to enhance memory & attention, and maintain brain health.
SCIENCE TO DETERMINE DIRECTION
Before we can talk through the steps in our supply chain it’s important to understand why we’ve selected perennial Salvia officinalis for our ingredient. Clonally propagated from root cuttings, our extract of sage was determined the best ingredient from the best source for life extension.
One of the biggest problems manufacturers’ can have is understanding which particular ingredient and then which particular source will produce the best biological activity to aid human health. Here at Sibelius, our patented testing process Chronoscreen™ allowed us to test across multiple sources to ensure sustainability and quality to get to the sage we use today.
This journey of discovery allowed us to select a particular sage extract grown in the damp, sunny hills of Hampshire, UK. The Sage we use is derived from a proprietary European herb source and cultivated exclusively for Sibelius Natural Products.
The sage leaf is grown and supplied by an experienced and reputable producer under an exclusive supply agreement. All production, including harvesting, is carried out accordingly to defined protocols with full traceability of the crop at every stage.
The next step of our sages’ journey is the extraction process for the bioactive components. To do this we use a manufacturing plant in Herefordshire, UK. Here, we’re able to track all quality and regulatory processes to ensure all the material that’s shipped is of the highest quality for our customers.
