What does made from imported & local ingredients mean?

Some of the ingredients we use in our dietary supplements cannot be sourced within New Zealand. Reishi mushroom, for example, is mostly grown in China where it has been used medicinally for centuries. 

 

This is why our Immune Guard, Immune Response and Vision shield products state "formulated and manufactured in New Zealand from imported and local ingredients".All Mānuka health finished products are manufactured in Auckland, New Zealand and we only source international ingredients from reputable business partners.
