In all cultures around the world, there is a long tradition of consuming herbal teas or tisane as a general tonic for health, as treatment for various bodily ailments, as a digestive, or simply as a calming or relaxing beverage. By boiling or steeping plant parts in hot water, beneficial water soluble phytochemicals, antioxidants, and nutrients leach out creating a functional beverage of unique flavour and aroma.
Herbal teas contain a variety of valuable plant compounds such as isoflavones, anthocyanins, proanthocyaninids, carotenoids, catechins, and isothiocyanates, aside from vitamins and minerals. Through these phytochemicals, herbal teas are able to help relieve symptoms of diabetes and hypertension, protect liver function, enhance immunity, dissolve kidney stones, subdue cough, detoxify the body, improve gastrointestinal function, fight cancer, to name just a few. In recent years, there has been a global renaissance in the popularity of herbal teas as modern science is discovering what ancient cultures have known all along ─ that drinking certain plant infusions are good for the health.

The roots of Herbanext Laboratories, Inc. date back to 1995 when Mr. Philip S. Cruz, an aquaculturist and agriculturist by profession, diversified his research interest into natural health products. In his personal quest to find natural cures for his health concerns on high cholesterol and high uric acid, Mr. Cruz studied the medicinal mushroom Ganoderma lucidum or Lingzhi, regarded as the “King of Herbs” in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Mr. Cruz got his breakthrough in 1997 after succeeding in the cultivation of the mushroom. In the following years, he collaborated with natural product researchers and medical practitioners in developing the mushroom into a nutraceutical product. In 2001, Herbanext Laboratories, Inc. was finally established.
During its early years of operation, Herbanext focused its business on the production of Ganoderma lucidum-based herbal formulations for addressing common lifestyle health issues in the Philippines such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension. With the help of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the company in 2006 started its acquisition of advanced manufacturing equipment. In the same year, the company set up Daily Apple Distributions as its marketing arm under the “Daily Apple” brand. Herbanext has since broadened its product range to include a wide range of nutraceutical products, healthy beverages, and functional foods all utilizing locally grown medicinal herbs. Herbanext presently operates a 2,500 m2 cGMP-certified and Halal-accredited manufacturing plant in Bago City, Negros Occidental, with the first and only dedicated extraction and spray-drying facility for medicinal herbs in the country.
Located within 10 minutes’ drive from its manufacturing Plant are the organically certified grow-out farms of Herbanext. The Company currently farms and processes around 20 different medicinal herbs including Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa), Bitter Gourd (Momordica charantia), Cat’s whisker (Orthosiphon stamineus), Five-leaved Chaste Tree (Vitex negundo), Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Green Chireta (Andrographis paniculata), Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa), Wild Tea (Ehretia microphylla), and Turmeric (Curcuma longa). Also located close to the Plant is the Company’s R&D farm which houses a raw material processing center, and the Herbanext Botanical Garden with a collection of over 200 medicinal and aromatic plants. At present, Herbanext is working closely with the Philippine Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and various research institutions in developing Philippine medicinal herbs into herbal supplements and herbal drugs for the local and export markets.
