Horphag Research Chosen as Sixth Recipient of American Botanical Council's Tyler Award
Date:2/25/2013

, scientific director for Horphag Research. "For more than a decade, I have personally overseen much of the research as we have built upon that commitment. I am extremely proud to see the team recognized for its dedication to making Pycnogenol one of the most well-researched natural health supplements available today."

"ABC congratulates Horphag Research for this most well-deserved and probably overdue honor," said Mark Blumenthal , founder and executive director of ABC. "Horphag Research is the epitome of a research-based natural products company, investing millions of dollars in scores of clinical research trials on its key product, Pycnogenol®.

"Professor Varro Tyler was one of my key mentors for about 20 years. He repeatedly emphasized his desire to see herb companies invest in scientific and clinical research on their herb and phytomedicinal products. I have no doubt that if he were alive today, he would fully endorse ABC's choosing Horphag this year to receive his eponymous award," continued Blumenthal.

The late Prof. Tyler — who has been described as one of the most respected men in late 20th century herbal medicine and pharmacognosy (the study of medicines of natural origin, usually from plants) — was an early trustee of ABC, dean of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Purdue University, and vice-president of academic affairs at Purdue. He was the senior author of six editions of the leading textbook in the field, formerly used in every college of pharmacy in the United States. 

Prof. Tyler urged his students and colleagues "not only to seek the truth but, after finding it, to discard any preconceived ideas which it may reveal as untrue." He encouraged scientific and product integrity and envisioned a rational herbal healthcare sector that valued the proper evaluation of products' quality, safety, and efficacy.
