Introducing Pukka’s Herbal Research
Here at Pukka Herbs, we invest in a vibrant programme of herbal research led by Dr Viv Rolfe (Pukka Head of Herbal Research). Our aim is to spark a herbal health and wellbeing revolution to help society appreciate the health benefits of herbs. We build our research upon traditional wisdom, and carry out research studies to increase the evidence-base to support the use of herbs for health and wellbeing.
Scholarships and Partnerships
We engage with the next generation of herbal scientists and bring students into Pukka from a wide range subject backgrounds, from biomedical science to psychology and agriculture. We have had scientific papers published with summer students from the University of the West of England looking at the health benefits of herbal teas, and a Master’s student from University College London which looked at the sourcing and quality of organic turmeric. We’ve worked with 22 students since forming the research team at Pukka in 2018.
