Vitano, containing 200mg of rhodiola rosea extract, is a traditional herbal remedy used for the temporary relief of symptoms related to stress, such as fatigue, exhaustion and mild anxiety, based on traditional use only.

A licensed herbal medicine means a safe, high quality product

Vitano Rhodiola Tablets have been registered under the Traditional Herbal Registration Scheme (THRS), a regulatory approval process for herbal treatments in the EU. Registration under this scheme primarily means that:

  • Vitano is a regulated herbal product and meets specific standards of safety and quality
  • Vitano is of pharmaceutical quality and has been manufactured to European Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Guidelines

The quality of many herbal products on the UK market at present is unknown and there are no independent quality and safety checks available to offer you reassurance about these products. Vitano’s registration under the THRS scheme provides you with the reassurance that it has been assessed by the MHRA and meets the required standard of safety and quality, as well as providing reliable patient information. The THR number on product packaging provides the proof of evidence that Vitano has met the MHRA’s agreed level of safety and quality, and that the on-pack consumer information has been approved by the MHRA.

Vitano is one of the few natural remedies for anxiety and stress available on the market that contains rhodiola rosea extract; each pharmaceutical grade coated tablet is foiled blister packed to retain its freshness and maintain its potency.

Rhodilola rosea is a perennial plant that grows in cold regions including much of the Arctic, the mountains of Central Asia, the Rocky Mountains, and mountainous parts of Europe. It is dioecious, meaning that it has both female and male plants.

We are committed to improving people’s health and wellbeing and do so using only the finest plant based, natural healthcare products. Please click Trust Schwabe to see why we’re the leaders in traditional herbal medicine, worldwide.
