About Us

Our Business

Kennedy GarlandThank you for taking the time to visit our website.

Pharma Health started trading in 2003, originally as Kenrick Waitland Limited, and became Pharma Health NZ Limited early in 2008. The Managing Director, Kennedy Garland, BSc., was motivated to provide safe, stable, effective, researched-based health supplements (with safety profiles) for those New Zealanders wanting quality healthcare products. The business quickly grew as people discovered the quality and effectiveness of the range of products carried by Pharma Health.

Active Ingredients

If you want to enjoy an egg you do not grind up a chicken and hope you get lucky as you fight your way through a feathery mess. Likewise if you want to "enjoy" the health benefits of a plant or other natural health product it is not wise to consume the whole plant and hope you manage to digest those parts which have a health benefit. The key to effective health supplements is to ensure that the active (the healthy aspect) is present in a tested and consumable format.

All Pharma Health's products have scientific data which shows the active ingredient is readily available and the established safety profiles mean that you can be assured that they will promote your health.

As in many Western countries many New Zealanders are disillusioned with the traditional medical model. Historically our medicines came from plants and other natural sources (EG aspirin from the bark of the willow tree) and nature had a way of providing many appropriate solutions for health issues. An effective natural health product should have established safety profile and the active ingredient (the health giving part) must be stable and readily absorbed into the body.

Natural Health Products

Remifemin is derived from Cimicifuga racemosaThere is much worldwide interest in natural products but being natural does not inherently mean it is safe. There are many plants that are potentially fatal and other plants that contain both healthy and unhealthy components. Pharma Health NZ Ltd's products are researched-based, have established safety profiles and are all derived from nature. Moreover the active ingredient of each product has been stabilised and presented in a form that is readily digestible. We are confident you will find them beneficial for your health.

We believe the rapid success of Pharma Health can be attributed to providing products which are:

Leading Brands
We only source the highest quality health supplements from both New Zealand and throughout the world. Many of our products are classified as phyto-medicines in Europe and are in many cases the market leaders in their field. e.g Tebonin EGb 761 and Kaloba.
Supported By Scientific Research
We are committed to providing you with natural health-care products which are supported by sound scientific research published in international peer reviewed journals. All our products contain the active ingredient in an easily digestible form which means the health benefits are presented in a proven format so you can enjoy the best advantage available.
