Helping to create a more sustainable future for businesses in the natural health sector

Our unique position of being a neutral but credible organisation that is bedded between the natural products sector, academia and government has allowed us to provide multiple benefits to our members. ANH-Intl achievements for the natural product sector include:

  • Legally challenged EU Food Supplements Directive (2003-5), championing natural sources of vitamins and minerals
  • Demonstrated via peer-reviewed publications the critically flawed nature of EU methods of risk assessment for food/dietary supplements
  • Co-developed a new and viable model for safety/benefit assessment of food/dietary supplements
  • Pioneered a sustainable healthcare approach based on citizen empowerment, health status monitoring, dietary and lifestyle modification, natural products and other non-pharmaceutical approaches
  • Rebutting biased, peer-reviewed journal articles that incorrectly condemn natural health approaches
  • Contributed to a wide range of international, EU and national consultations on regulatory issues pertaining to natural health.

Continued campaigning and advocacy is necessary to safeguard the operations of all parties involved in the natural healthcare sector, including you!

ANH-Intl is a not-for-profit organisation that exists for your benefit. All our tireless efforts in campaigns, activism, advocacy, research and education are funded entirely by donations from individuals, companies and associations that recognise the vital contribution our work makes to protecting the right to practice and engage in natural health across the UK, Europe and elsewhere in the world.
