When Prof. Dr. Ernst Laves laid the foundation stone for Laves-Arzneimittel GmbH in 1908, research into the intestine and its microbiome was still in its infancy. More than 100 years later, the intestine and all the bacteria it contains, with their central role for the immune system, are more important than ever before. For 111 years, the fourth-generation family business has been passionately dedicated to the holistic possibilities of therapies for the most diverse intestinal diseases.

In all its products, Laves attaches great importance to the sustainability of the therapeutic success, the naturalness and tolerability of the active ingredients, as well as to being able to offer those affected an effective alternative to conventional medicine. The naturopathic expertise in the area of intestines and the lively exchange of experiences with the therapists are helpful for this. Laves uses both to make its products even better and to continue to offer users high-quality and effective medicines and food supplements in the future.

Together we help people

to overcome their intestinal and immune problems. Through some coincidences, they came to our preparations and their lives suddenly become normal again. What we sometimes get in terms of happy patient reactions - that makes me proud.

An eventful history
