WHAT IS Epiferm?

Our manufacturing methods have been specifically developed with specialised processes to provide optimal bioavailability of phytochemicals.

Cell Bursting (Cytolysis)

To improve the availability of the cytoplasm inside the cell for further processing, cytolysis is incorporated, by bursting the plant cells by means of rapid thermal differentiation and/or ultrasonic cytolysis.



Sceletium is a group of succulent plant species, known for its high alkaloid content, native to the arid areas of South Africa. Our research enabled us to find the best species for different applications, cultivate them in the best ways possible to enable us to make extracts with the ideal combination of alkaloids. Some of these alkaloids are further processed with different advanced processes for optimal bio-availability. These alkaloids are further applied for the treatment of anxiety, depression, stress, autism, neurological disorders and substance dependence.


Cancer treatments are very expensive. HP Biotech are researching numerous ground-breaking alternatives to conventional treatments with some very promising results.

Bioflavonoids and Proanthocyanidins

Bioflavonoids and Proanthocyanidins are well-known for the  reduction of free oxygen species known as free radical scavenging. HP Biotech are doing in-depth research on the further optimization of these antioxidants as free radical and heavy metal scavengers and the application of it as  anti-carcinogens, the treatment of hypertension, arthritis, worsening eyesight, collagen reparation, cellular damage and many more.


Years of research enabled HP Biotech to develop a protein derived from microbes, resembling the same amino acid profile as that of animal proteins containing the essential amino acids needed by the body which plant proteins can't provide, making it also suitable for vegans.

Low cost instant meal replacers, yet as nutritious as high end  expensive meal replacers are being developed for low income households.

Sports nutrition also captures the dedicated attention of our researcher to provide optimized nutrition for sport professionals.
