GUNA is a Sanskrit term which means “all life energies of living beings”. A parallel can be drawn between the essence of this ancient word and GUNA’s international reputation for leading edge science and medical advancement. A hallmark of GUNA’s commitment to scientific innovation is collaboration in both Research and Development and medical education within the Academic community in various well-known Universities, first of all the State University of Milan (Università degli Studi di Milano). This cornerstone of GUNA’s vision ensures that the company is and will be on the forefront of integrative medicine – thereby providing the most advanced medical treatment concepts and products available today.
