HRI Herbal Medicine is a UK based, family-run company founded in 1978 by Terry and Patricia Gallagher and has a product history dating back to the early sixties.
Our innovative range of quality herbal medicines and supplements is designed to give people options in how they manage everyday health issues.
We help people live their healthiest life with natural, active herbs, often with fewer side effects than other medicines. And we rigorously test product batches in the lab for ongoing safety and performance.
HRI Herbal Medicine is now run by two of Terry and Patricia’s daughters, Brigitte Flower and Charlotte Gallagher, who continue their parents’ work of researching and developing unique product formulations which utilise the most powerful herb, root and leaf extracts to create products which meet the needs of modern life.
All HRI Herbal Medicine products have THR (Traditional Herbal Registration) with the MHRA for quality and safety standards. Our herbs are sourced from high quality producers and manufactured in the UK under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines.
We personally respond to every email, phone call or letter so if you get in touch, you will hear back directly from one of our team.
HRI Herbal Medicine is a trademark of Jessup Health, the UK’s sole supplier of HRI branded herbal medicines.
We want to give people choices by providing high quality, safe herbs for a range of health needs, such as skin conditions, bloating, colds and flu, gut support and low mood.
We believe in alternatives to chemicals whenever possible. Human physiology has evolved in sync with the nutrients and biochemicals provided by plants which have the power to heal us.
Favourite health tip:
Echinacea is my winter hero. I take it all through the winter to prevent colds and flu; whenever I feel a cold coming on, I take a double dose and get to bed early.
I used to get ill a lot over Christmas, but taking echinacea, and making some changes to my lifestyle (less stress, more sleep and healthy winter veg) has meant I now have more energy and can enjoy the festive period.
Favourite health tip:
Yoga and Acro yoga! I used to work out at the gym or do high energy fitness classes, but I gave all this up after discovering yoga. It gives you great body tone and flexibility but has also made me feel happier and less stressed. Acro has become my new favourite type of yoga.
It’s a more social style where you work in a partnership and create beautiful shapes and flows together (with a few falls and laughs in between).
Favourite health tip:
I started at HRI Herbal Medicine in 2018 and previously hadn’t tried any of their products. I have suffered for many years with acne prone skin and have consistently had to take antibiotics.
Upon learning about HRI Clear Complexion I decided it would be worth a go to see if it improved. One month on and I was able to come off the antibiotics! I’ve continued to take Clear Complexion ever since. I do periodically have to revert back to the antibiotics, but it is maybe twice a year rather than constantly.
Favourite health tip:
Over the years I have found Arnica very useful as I bruise really easily. I use Arnica cream as soon as possible on the affected area to help bruises heal quickly.
When my daughters had their wisdom teeth removed, I gave them Arnica tissue salts before and after their surgery and they avoided getting any of the nasty swelling you can get after this operation.

Favourite health tip:
Following a diagnosis of raised cholesterol, my doctor prescribed statins. ‘No thank you’, I said! Our family herbalist explained that statins, like a quarter of all pharmaceutical drugs, are derived from a herb.
She explained that statins contain a chemical that’s identical to the active ingredient in Red Yeast Rice, which I thought was rather an odd name, but having regularly taken two doses a day, my cholesterol has now been normal for many years without side effects.
"Working well so far, I bought for my teenage son to help with skin issues & vitamins he misses out on. The tablets have all the vitamins I was looking for without being processed or overloaded to cause any adverse side effects."
"Bought these for my 14 yr old girl who was having monthly breakouts. Since taking these she has had the odd spot and pimple but so much better than a month ago."
"My teenage son has had a problem with mild acne for some time and we have tried all sorts of topical creams etc. I thought I would try this product as it also had other benefits. We have only had it a few weeks but I notice a change already. There are still spots but there are less of them and his general complexion is better."
"I had been suffering from flu for 3 weeks so took these as it didn’t seem to want to go. These helped boost my immune system which in turn fought off the virus."
"I was very pleased with my purchase. Easy to swallow tablets. I normally take echinacea on its own but this one with the added vitamins seemed to soothe my cold a bit quicker."
"So I am touching wood here! I’ve been taking Echinacea all winter and despite the fact my husband has caught three colds this season, I have managed to avoid catching any!! This is unheard of for me as I catch colds really easily normally. I must add that I've also been taking VitD for the past few months, so not sure if this has helped too."
"I used these when the dreaded feeling of a cold had started, straight away for 4 days!
My cold had gone...They worked for me, would definitely use again! Thank you."
"I have 2 tots under 4 - this stuff is amazing at preventing me from being ill with their constant lurgis! Take it the moment you feel a bit unwell and within a couple of days you’re back to full health!"
"I have always like to use plant base remedies and I was not disappointed in a matter of days I felt better no congestion on my chest and breathing so much better nose an airways fine, I would definitely recommend to family and friends."
"So far, I do feel calmer while taking these tablets. I am only taking one a day and they seem to make me feel less troubled."
"I have tried a few brands of milk thistle, but I now continually go to this brand which I find an excellent product. Not only is it very effective, but I believe is good quality for the money."
"It does the job. I feel great using it. I felt like my liver was clogged and now I feel a tad better. My skin is also clearing."
“I have tried everything from making changes to my diet, to every lotion and potion out there, even going on the sun beds to try and just tan my face to make things less noticeable, I got these as I thought I might as well try them and I can honestly say WOW, I take 3 a day and within 3 days I could see a change, I highly recommend these I feel so much more confident and happy xx."
"Within a week my breakouts had calmed down, within two all spots & upcoming spots were non-existent. These supplements are easy to take & most importantly they work. They’re also extremely good value for money & natural. I recommend to everyone I know who suffers from persistent breakouts."
"These tablets have saved my confidence! I’m in my mid 30’s and my skin has decided that I now need spots, loads of them! They really got me down and I tried everything then found these. They are not a miracle overnight treatment but within 2 weeks my spots become less red and obvious and no new ones came up. After I finished the pack I saw a huge reduction to them and my skin appears brighter and less oily."
"I have used it for a while and I'm really happy with it. I was already improving from a liver condition with some milk thistle and other herbs, and I chose this product because it has a higher dose. It works wonders for my digestion."
"This certainly lifted my husbands “mood” and I will definitely be buying another pack."
"Having tried alternatives, I have found that HRI offers the most noticeable lift in mood with the least negative side effects. Will continue to use for the foreseeable future."
"These tablets take away my swollen ankles and hands. Works well."
"I have tried several water relief products in the past & wanted to stop using strong prescribed ones. I have tried these and they have been absolutely amazing - a more natural way to use this!! They are great value for money & great service, completely recommend this company!"
"This is the only product, out of many that I have tried that actually really works well for water retention. Would highly recommend. Also great customer service from the seller and I received regular updates on the delivery process."
"These tablets are my lifeline. I have severe arthritis and I take them as my tablets cause severe water retention. I’m losing weight, but was struggling with the water. They’re fantastic – I’ve tried others like Aqua Ban and nothing shifts the water like these. I really appreciate you getting back to me – your Customer Service is fantastic."
HRI Water Balance is a great product for getting rid of bloating and water retention. Within three days of starting to take the tablets according to the instructions, they had noticeably reduced my water retention and after five days I was back to normal and feeling less bloated than I do normally. I would definitely recommend HRI Water Balance to people."
