Our story is told by the nature that surrounds us, the nature that inspires us, and the nature that guides our actions every day.
Made by Family, For Your Family
Founded in 1948 by Dr. Helene Dünner, we are a dynamic, independent and family-owned Swiss company that is passionate about the beneficial, restorative and fortifying effects of plants and herbs. For more than four generations, the Dr.Dünner company has been harnessing the powerful, health-supporting properties of plants and herbs, the Swiss way. Located in the heart of Switzerland, we handpick organic herbs from its abundant meadows and Alpine foothills and travel the country in search of the highest quality ingredients, while our scientists create unique and beautifully balanced blends of these botanicals in small batches, to preserve potency. We enjoy strong partnerships with our local farmers and worldwide suppliers. All of our nutritional supplements adhere to strict pharmaceutical standards. And while you’ll find Dr.Dünner in over 20 countries, all essential stages of production take place right here in Switzerland. This means you can trust that these herbs didn’t have to travel very far, from plant to product.
History of Swiss Herbs
The magnificent meadows you think of when you think about Swiss Alpine landscapes aren’t natural - in fact, they are cultural. Small Alpine farmers are responsible for creating these fields that support the growth of the herbs we used centuries ago and still today.
The history of Swiss herbs is rooted in ancient medical knowledge from European monks and nuns who frequently kept medicinal herb gardens and refined recipes, systematically furthering the development of many herbal remedies that we use today. Simultaneously, we are guided by the newest scientific knowledge, taking into account the latest research findings and using modern and efficient production methods.
Where Our Herbs Come From
Our herbs are sourced from the heart of Switzerland by local farmers that we trust and rely on. At Dr. Dünner, we believe in giving nature the respect it deserves, which often means we may have more of one product one year, and less of it another. If we can’t get more of an ingredient, it’s not because it’s not available anywhere - it is because it wouldn’t be coming from a farmer we trust and know personally.
At Dr. Dünner we try to maintain the balance between nature and science, sustainably sourcing herbs from the heart of Switzerland from farmers we’ve come to trust and love. We will always know the whole value chain of our herbs - from the soil they’re grown in to the farmers that harvest them. On the way to becoming a zero emission business, our commitment to nature is embedded in our company culturelearn more about our herbs
