“The products that Aquilea offers, in general, allow us to safely have at hand highly recommendable resources for numerous situations”

“I must admit that when we set out to write Aquilea and the medical community for the Aquileia website, we thought of the numerous occasions when we had to defend the value of traditional medicine; all while facing bigoted people proclaiming the wonders of so-called alternative medicine that is practiced by medicine men and healers whose value is negligible, and who incidentally use persuasiveness and persistence on the people who visited them. Those "alternative" therapies served as little more than a placebo, and certainly provided little benefit to the patient.

In any specialty, and particularly in gynecology , we constantly observe the somatization of everyday problems that create situations which do not endanger any vital function, but that adversely hamper the regular functioning of patients at work, at home and/or in their relationships.

On many occasions we recommend empirical treatments, lifestyle changes, modifying one’s diet, etc., but we find that there’s a lack of options because we don’t cover the wide spectrum of the aforementioned everyday situations. It’s for this reason that herbal medicine and the products that Aquilea safely provide allow for us to have resources at our disposable to treat situations that aren’t covered by traditional methods, even for healthy people. Natural products, such as probiotics, North American beetroot, and of course, widespread isoflavones.

“Among its many applications, its digestive properties, and above all its healing and wound care properties must be emphasized”

The brand Aquilea takes their name from a plant, the yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.), a species of wide holartic distribution within the more than 110 subspecies of the Achillea genus.

Yarrow, or Aquilea, is a species that has been used for more than 6000 years. In 2012 remains of this plant were found in caves used as a habitat by Neanderthals.

The medicinal uses of this plant and other very similar species of the same genus are known in Europe and among the Amerindians and in China.

Among its many applications, its digestive properties, and above all its healing and bleeding wound care properties must be emphasized. In fact, the name Aquilea derives from the Greek hero Achilles, famous for his invulnerability to injury, and soldiers traditionally carried this plant in their backpacks.

In 2012, a collaboration between the Botanical Garden of Barcelona and Uriach-Aquilea laboratories allowed for the construction of the first garden exclusively dedicated to the cultivation of different species of Achillea. What is today a small garden with 11 species from around the world, we hope will become the cornerstone of close collaboration between pharmaceutical companies and the Botanical Garden for future research of this genus of plants with extraordinary healing potential.”
