|Lee Swanson, President of Swanson Health Products ®|
In 1886, Dr. Paul Lohmann established the company that still bears his name by producing some of the world's first reduced-iron products. Over the years the eponymous company—Dr. Paul Lohmann, GmbH KG—has expanded to become a world-renowned corporation quietly headquartered in the small hamlet of Emmerthal, Germany. Four generations after its founding, the company remains family owned under the leadership of Dr. Lohmann's great grandson, Jurgen Lohmann.
Swanson Product Development Expert Tom Audette travelled to Emmerthal in 2012 to visit Mr. Lohmann and learn more about the company's world-class nutraceuticals. He returned triumphant, having developed a partnership allowing Swanson Health Products® to bring these superior products to America.
A few short years after Dr. Lohmann's initial production, he was presented the Award of the German Apothecary's Association for iron products. The emphasis on creative innovation that established the Lohmann name became the hallmark of the company's success and continues to drive the current generation as they apply the same principles to a full range of minerals.
Jurgen Lohmann believes that it is this culture of creativity that allows his company to lead the market with consistent, high-quality products that exceed all international standards. Dr. Paul Lohmann® products are unique both in form and function, produced through proprietary methods that yield versatile ingredients that blend easier, carry virtually no taste and absorb easily to provide optimum supplemental nourishment.
New Swanson Ultra® Instant Calcium Drink Mix features Dr. Paul Lohmann®'s Calcium Lactate PLUS, a superior form of calcium designed for maximum solubility with the added benefit of malic acid. Lohmann scientists realized that typical calcium supplements don't absorb well and deliver only a small percentage of elemental calcium. This means large pills, inefficient calcium delivery and, as liquids, gritty, hard-to-swallow formulations.
Calcium Lactate PLUS solves these issues with sugar-free high-purity, highly-soluble calcium lactate combined with malic acid, a natural compound with complementary biological benefits. Calcium lactate is lactose-free and is the only form of calcium shown in published research to provide significant bone-health support. We blend this superior calcium powder with all-natural flavors and pure Reb-A from stevia to create our Instant Calcium Drink Mix, an incredibly easy-mixing, pleasant-tasting drink mix that makes calcium supplementation easier than ever. Just mix in water or juice for a healthy calcium boost. Calcium Lactate PLUS is the European Gold Standard solution for daily calcium supplementation.
