“From a young age, I was fascinated by the beauty of flowering plants, and I learnt most of the native species while I was still a young boy. While I later discovered a passion for ornithology, my botanical interest endured. During many trips to Europe, Israel, South Africa and Latin America, I deepened my scientific knowledge of plants. After studying biology and chemistry at the University of Bonn, I moved to the TU Braunschweig in 1977, where I completed my doctorate on the alkaloids in lupins. As a result, I was able to take a closer look at the chemistry of phytonutrients and discover a fascinating new world of medicinal plants and their active ingredients.”

“I have been interested in healthy eating all my life. After suffering several severe and sometimes extremely painful intestinal inflammations as a child, I had to live with the fact that healthy nutrition was not only very important but absolutely indispensable. I noticed early on that the individual foods I eat, and above all the way I combine the foods I eat, have a major impact on my health and well-being. Sport and exercise, as well as reducing my meat consumption, has helped me to get my intestinal problems under control."
