H&AD – Herbal & Antioxidant Derivatives – is an Italian company that develops and markets food supplements and nutraceuticals in more than 20 countries in Europe, USA, Asia, and Australia.

We aim at offering high standards of quality products, 100% natural, supported by solid research and evidence-based proofs of their effectiveness for patients. Our focus on health care and nutraceuticals derives from centuries of traditional experience and use of Mediterranean fruits and natural medicine.

Alongside with pre-clinical and clinical studies proving our products effectiveness, we adopted the principles of the Mediterranean Diet, based on the use of vegetables and citrus derivatives. Within this context, we re-evaluated the use of Bergamot, which has been adopted for centuries in traditional medicine to improve blood flow and reduce arthrosclerosis. Bergamot differs from the other varieties of Citrus for high content of polyphenols, that are natural compounds best known for their antioxidant effects. Today, H&AD is considered one of the top ranking companies in the area of Bergamot derivatives and natural products.
