THR (Traditional Herbal Remedies)
Herbalist Henry Potter opened his first shop in London in 1812, where he developed and perfected the art of blending specially selected plant ingredients to create natural, proven medicines. Quantities of many different high quality ingredients are blended together to allow the synergy of herbs to optimise efficacy. The traditional skill and expertise is complemented by extensive research and development as well as modern manufacturing techniques, ensuring the quality, safety and effectiveness of its products, which are manufactured to the highest and strictest of quality controls.
Potter’s Herbals is a traditional British company that is proud to carry its founder’s name and the Traditional Herbal Registration (THR) status.
With the introduction of THR licensing, overseen by the MHRA (UK Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency), consumers and healthcare professionals are now provided with reassurance about herbal products in the UK market, allowing customers to buy them in the knowledge they have been rigorously tested and proven to have efficacious qualities.
Potter’s Herbals work hard to ensure the safety and quality of all their products to help better educate consumers so have heavily invested in communicating this to the UK market. Each remedy within the portfolio now displays the THR logo and unique THR license number so consumers can clearly identify the Potter’s Herbals products that meet the MHRA’s agreed level of safety and quality.
The MHRA assesses crucial aspects such as the dosage and quality of the active medicinal ingredient in the product and the registration shows the product has met the standards set on safety, quality and patient information. Registered medicines have clear patient leaflets which explain how they should be used, dosage, and potential side effects.
The introduction of the THR certification is great news as it is now a quick an easy way of identifying which products have met the safety and quality standards to be accredited with this THR signage on pack.
