Belgium

  • The approval of the State Health Institute (SZÚ) and the Ministry of health (MZ ČR) about the health harmlessness of the herbal tablets.
  • Each batch of individual herbs (187 species) is tested (see Medichin) in the renowned accredited Phytax Laboratory in the Swiss Schlieren, namely to identify herbs, heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic and copper), bacteria (e. coli, salmonella, the total number of bacteria), mold and yeasts (aflatoxine B1 and total aflatoxines) and pesticides (organochlorine, organophosphorus, pyretroide, nitrogen and other pesticides). Herbal drinks (codes 822, 844, 850, 888, 900) and herbal products in powder form (codes 009, 050, 198, 199, 200) are without any preservatives and chemical additives or substances. Herbal tablets contain natural cellulose as the only connective fabric (max. 1%). All of our herbs are not ionized, do not contain gluten (excluding code 025 and 113) and aristolochic acid. The manufacturer points out that each batch of herbs sometimes can have a different color, a different taste or scents (because they are natural and not genetically formulated products …), but always with the same effect! The bottles are filled with non-toxic phoam.

Our main supplier is a Belgian company Medichin, which imports all the herbs from the company Min Tong Pharmaceutical of Taiwan and which was founded in 1938 and is therefore one of the oldest and most prestigious companies in this area. This business partner has been chosen with respect to its consistent laboratory check which devotes to the entire production process (see TCM in Taiwan). The Belgian company Medichin produces from concentrated Chinese herbs in the ratio of 5:1 in the form of powder (such as cocoa) herbal tablets without the use of synthetic ingredients, as a binder serves the natural cellulose microcrystalline (1%). These are 100% natural herbal products and include, among other things, no gluten (except for codes 025 and 113). Currently, the entire production of herbal tablets provides for our company, which is also the exclusive distributor, the Belgian company Medichin.
