Jeremy Stewart

Vice President of Scientific Affairs

Dr. Jeremy Stewart has been with Gaia Herbs since 2005, after attending the University of Mississippi, where he obtained his PhD in pharmacognosy, the study of chemistry and biology of natural products. In 2007, Jeremy became Gaia’s Chief Scientist, overseeing the analytical laboratory, while developing, updating and reviewing standard operating procedures, assuring Gaia meets or exceeds current standards. In 2012, Jeremy took the title of VP of Scientific Affairs. He expanded Gaia’s quality department and created a research and development department to include some of the most state of the art analytical technologies used in the natural products industry today. He works on a consistent basis with team members throughout Gaia to improve processes and create products of the highest quality in accordance with Gaia Herbs’ commitment to purity, potency, and integrity.

Ecologically Harvested is a term that describes all herbs sold by Gaia Herbs that are not Certified Organic. Ecologically Harvested herbs include herbs that are harvested in their natural habitat, (i.e., wild harvested) according to specific guidelines for harvesting these herbs (i.e., away from roads and industry, as well as guidelines to avoid overharvesting). Our term, Ecologically Harvested, also includes herbs that are grown in managed woodland areas, fields designated for specific herbs, and herbs that are grown by indigenous growers, such as Kava Kava. All Ecologically Harvested herbs pass pesticide and heavy metal testing as well as microbial testing, prior to release.
