A.Vogel Heart & Circulatory Health Capsules - 60 Tablets
Alfred Vogel praised both Hawthorn and Garlic, and in his writings illustrated the all-embracing benefits of each. Vogel recognized that the usefulness of Garlic has been recorded back to antiquity, and in the Heart & Circulatory Health Capsules, has relied on those findings as well as the results of the A.Vogel Laboratory in the production of these health capsules. Here, Alfred Vogel has combined the pulp from the deep red fruit of the Hawthorn, one of the most familiar of hedgerow berries, and the beautiful Passiflora plant to produce the celebrated Heart & Circulatory Health Capsules, a product that truly supports health and well-being.
- Promotes healthy cardiovascular function.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are A.Vogel products organic?
A.Vogel is certified as an organic growing operation. Herbs are organically grown using sustainable agricultural practices. Only the alcohol used in the extractions is not certified organic. Swiss Law requires A.Vogel to purchase the alcohol from the Swiss governmental agency. While not certified organic the extremely pure Swiss alcohol is made from a variety of grains, potatoes or fruits. For many years Switzerland has had strict laws in place regarding the use of fertilizers and pesticides, ensuring the purity of alcohol produced from their harvests.
Are A.Vogel products standardized?
Absolutely! A.Vogel does not standardize to just one key ingredient. To standardize just one or two key ingredients, ignores other constituents, which can also contribute to the efficacy of the plant. This approach also ensures that the research is valid for subsequent batches of the products A.Vogel produces. From a clinical and scientific point-of-view, it is important to standardize to a wider range of components. This is why A.Vogel has always standardized to the whole plant.Why does A.Vogel use only fresh herbs?
Why does A.Vogel use only fresh herbs?
Simply put, fresh is best! When plants are dried, a considerable portion of the components is lost. Extractions from fresh plants result in a product with a chemical profile quite similar to the plant itself. Dr. Alfred Vogel, founder of A.Vogel, found in his clinical observations that the effects are more profound with products made from fresh plants. For instance, an analytical comparison between an extract made from fresh Echinacea purpurea and the same Echinacea purpurea that was dried for 24 hours proved that the extract from the fresh plants had almost three times the alkyamides compared to the extract from dried plant. Recent research has proven that the alkylamides are a key active component. The extraction process produces a product that is more stable and more potent than an encapsulated dried herb. A.Vogel grows theplants it uses and controls every aspect from seed to bottle. Because of this, A.Vogel can guarantee the quality and consistency of their herbal products.
Why is GMP certification important?
For Bioforce, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) applies to more than just the manufacturing process. It includes seed selection, cultivation, harvesting and post manufacturing documentation as well. This ensures the finished product will always be the same, batch after batch, year after year. To be certified, meeting the Swiss Pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices, Bioforce is inspected regularly by the Swiss authorities. These are the same standards that the Pharmaceutical industry must meet.
When was the company Bioforce founded?
Dr. Alfred Vogel founded Bioforce in 1963; however, Dr.Vogel began working with plants, producing plant products used as remedies and solutions to health related issues as early as 1923. Echinaforce, one of Bioforce's most successful products, has been on the market for over 50 years. Today, we can say that Echinaforce is the most researched Echinacea product in the world. In fact, Bioforce has been a leader in herbal research and development, and was recently recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) for significant scientific advances in dietary supplement research. This commitment to primary research is one of the main factors setting Bioforce apart from other herbal companies.

2008 marks the 10th anniversary of Bioforce USA. They take their inspiration and name from their partner Bioforce AG, based in Roggwil, Switzerland, which was founded by world-renowned phytotherapist, author and teacher Alfred Vogel (1902-1996), who launched the company in 1963.
Vogel's aim was to supply a growing number of patients with natural remedies and other health-giving products which met his own high standards. Besides herbal and homeopathic medicines, Bioforce also produces organic foods and dietary products as well as body care products, all prepared from Alfred Vogel's own recipes and according to his specifications. Bioforce is active in 33 countries, with five "daughter" companies and seven partner companies, and over 600 employees.
Ross, who knew the profound bond of a family organization, soon wooed his son-in-law, Pierce Sioussat, who formerly spearheaded the Abkit line with Ross, and the dynamic husband-and-wife team of Bob and Eileen Sheets to carry forth the mission of supplying American health food stores with the very best natural products the world truly has to offer.
Bioforce USA provides its retail community with a host of promotional support services, such as co-op advertising, beautiful educational brochures, counter and floor displays, samplings and periodic specials as incentives.
