Research and Innovation

Research, development and innovation center

In Soria Natural we believe in natural medicine as a discipline with a millenary origin, a traditional use and a future based on the application of science to advance in the knowledge of plants and to obtain new therapeutic alternatives.

Our own Research, Development and Innovation (R+D+i) center is located in the facilities of Soria Natural in Garray (Soria).

A large team of scientists and technicians, specialized in Natural Medicine, work with the latest technology to develop projects that allow:

  • The study of medicinal plants in depth, increasing every day the knowledge about their pharmacological activity, clinical effectiveness and toxicity.
  • The development of new formulas to increase the absorption and bioavailability of the active principles of medicinal plants.
  • The incorporation of diverse technologies and techniques for the development of new methods of extraction of active principles and other processes for the elaboration of natural products.
  • The implementation of new, innovative, more efficient and safer production processes.

Soria Natural works from our Research, Development and Innovation Center to improve the competitiveness and quality of our natural products and, therefore, the well-being and health of people.

Research in Soria Natural

Our commitment to research and innovation has led us to develop different scientific programs in collaboration with important hospitals, universities and other scientific entities.

Among the different research and innovation projects, we highlight the one developed in collaboration with the Cancer Research Center of Salamanca (CIC) and the University of Santiago de Compostela on the antitumor activity of the Pepperwort (Lepidium latifolium).

This study focused on the search for antitumor substances in the plant Lepidium latifolium. The conclusions of the study, which was conducted over more than a decade, are reported in the scientific publication “Antitumor activity of Lepidium latifolium and identification of the epithionitrile 1-cyano-2,3-epithiopropane” published in March 2018 in the Journal Molecular Carcinogenesis.

Clinical trials in hospitals

Soria Natural has also developed different research programs in collaboration with different hospitals.

- Hospital Arnau de Vilanova and Hospital La Fe (Valencia):

Trials with hawthorn capsules for cardiovascular diseases in patients who have suffered from heart attacks.

- Ramón y Cajal Hospital (Madrid):

Antilithiasic properties of Lepidium Latifolium and Ortosiphon Stamineus capsules in patients suffering from kidney stones.

- Hospital de Mataró (Barcelona) and Hospital de Utrera (Sevilla):

Beneficial prostate properties of Lepidium Latifolium and Ortosiphon Stamineus capsules in patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia.
