Vitanica was started over 24 years ago.  At the time she felt there was a lack of readily available, high quality, effective and affordable nutritional/herbal supplements for women’s specific issues.  She wanted to create products for her patients and also for health foods stores, so women could have affordable and reliable natural health care options available in many places.  Vitanica products address topics that affect women directly, i.e. gynecology specific areas of pregnancy, menstrual cycle and menopause; and topics that affect women more so than men, as in sleep, adrenals, digestion, urinary tract, etc.; and topics that affect women differently than men.  Most of the products are also suitable for men.  Dr. Hudson bases her formulas on three aspects: her clinical experience, ongoing scientific research and the time-honored tradition of natural medicine.  Vitanica products are manufactured with the utmost care and testing for accuracy, purity and potency.  Only the highest quality ingredients go into the products.  Professionals and consumers appreciate and rely on the consistent quality Vitanica is known for.  The products are made without binders, fillers, preservatives, artificial colors or flavorings.  The entire line is 100% vegetarian suitable, with the majority of the line also being suitable for vegans.
