We use science to develop natural products with remarkable properties, sharing natural New Zealand’s gifts with the wider world.
New Zealand under the microscope
We source all our natural ingredients here in New Zealand, and it’s New Zealand’s flora that we put under the microscope. There’s a reason for this: New Zealand’s natural environment is unique. Our country is particularly adversely affected by the hole in the Earth’s ozone layer. Elsewhere, the Earth’s ozone layer protects plant life from harmful UV radiation. But here in New Zealand, our plants are especially exposed.
Over time, our plantlife has adapted to our environment. Our plants and trees have "learned" to protect themselves from disease and harm through things like the protective natural resins that coat their bark and leaves.
Some of New Zealand’s natural gifts are beneficial to humans. At Helena Health, we take only what beneficial from nature and investigate what nature offers. Our research informs our product range, allowing us to share the best of New Zealand’s unique natural gifts with the world.
We investigate nature
Nature is full of natural gifts that supplement our health and nurture our wellbeing.
Some of nature's gifts have proven health properties. Others do not.
At Helena Health, we investigate and develop innovative products made from natural ingredients sourced and produced in New Zealand. This helps us discover and identify the best natural ingredients in existence. We aim to share them with the world.
The science continues
Scientists have studied the health and wellness benefits of certain natural products for years, and have made some startling discoveries.
We know through scientific studies that certain natural compounds can support the prevention of diseases, fight viruses, combat aging, grant us energy, boost our mood and even lower our risk of devastating illnesses. We’ve learned so much already. But we’ve only just scratched the surface.
At Helena Health, we’ve been studying bee products for years, learning and discovering their secrets.
Today, we continue to investigate the life-enriching properties of not just bee products but other natural, native New Zealand compounds. We use what we learn to create unique and innovative products gifted by nature and proven by science.
Our focus is to lead the world with natural bioactive solutions for human health.
We continue to investigate the life-enriching properties of not just bee products but other natural, native New Zealand compounds. We use what we learn to create unique and innovative products gifted by nature and proven by science.
The main focus for Helena Health is on the bioactive compound methylglyoxal in manuka honey and on a synergistic mix of compounds in propolis, led by Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester (CAPE).
