President Patrick D. Roquel, and wife Dr. Elinor Tee-Roquel is a formidable team to beat in deliveringa very powerful message : to continue in giving the best Lagundi ( Vitex negundo L.)-from the way it was sourced out, planted, nurtured (no chemicals), harvested, processed and dried at a controlled temperature for 8 hours, maintaining its green color (dried and powdered form),and has a 2 year stability as raw materials, and additional 2 more years when processed in capsule, tablet or cough syrup.
Lagundi is considered as one of the top 10 Herbal medicines approved by the Department of Health, with proven therapeutic value , especially for asthma, coughs and colds.
At the height of the pandemic, Covid 19 has affected and claimed a lot of lives. Lagundi underwent clinical trials as a supplemental treatment for patients – in decreasing the symptoms, especially in the loss of the sense of smell. Frontliners, including doctors who tested positive, were given Lagundi as part of the clinical trials.The patients recovered, with no adverse incidence. All these happened even before the vaccines arrived in the country.
The farm and plant tour in Tanauan, Batangas proves that RichCorp (Roqs International Consumer Health Corp. ) is focused on producing the best herbal medicinal plants, especially Lagundi. We witnessed how they nurture the plants as “plant parents” and how Sir Patrick and Dr. Elinor explained the infancy to maturity, harvesting, and immediately bringing the leaves to the nearby plant to start the washing, drying and coming out of the machines in powdered form.
Sir Patrick believes that the Lagundi raw materials from the company are world class and export quality. Instead of importing raw materials, he is gearing up in delivering the best to different parts of the world; this will definitely have a great impact on improving our country’s economy.
