The Eclectic Institute, Inc. was founded in 1984 by Dr. Edward Alstat, who owns and directs the company today. Eclectic is committed to using nature’s healing power in the preparation of botanical products that enhance health and well-being.
The company’s goals are to manufacture botanical products of the highest quality raw materials that are known for clinical efficacy.
Eclectic Institute pioneered the first complete line of organic alcohol extracts, choosing certified organic grape alcohol in order to support the health of this planet. The company’s alcohol free glycerites, with non-artificial flavors, introduced herbs to many people otherwise deterred by their strong flavors. Eclectic pioneered the freeze-drying of herbs to keep their vitality, potency and freshness. Today it is the leader in botanical freeze-drying technology.
