How to best take our herbal tablets
Our tablets do not contain any additives, binding agents or adhesives. Only natural microcrystalline cellulose serves as a binder, and only up to a maximum of 1%. Therefore, the products must be compressed into very hard, compact tablets, which are more difficult to dissolve and may be hard for some people to swallow – but it varies from individual to individual and depends on the person. Therefore the following use has worked best: In the evening, put your morning (daily) dose of tablets (e.g. 6 + 6 tablets of each kind) in a mug and pour some water (cold or hot) into it, the tablets will be almost dissolved by the morning. In the morning, put e.g. Beverage of Chinese sages or another beverage into the mug, pour in only hot water (100°C) and mix everything properly (with a spoon). For better taste, you can add some good quality milk (of any kind to your liking) – you will get quite a tasty bitter white coffee, which you can, without fear of insufficient absorption of herbs, drink for breakfast (ideally millet porridge).
The advantages are as follows:
- Easy ingestion even of bitter herbs (can be sweetened with maple or date syrup, if needed)
- Maximum absorption of finely dissolved herbs
- Speed and simplicity – no intervals and waiting 15 minutes before and 30 minutes after a meal
- It replaces the breakfast beverage (no need to drink morning tea or coffee).
- At the same time, this form of use is also “natural” for the spleen PI and its energy QI – for these reasons we never use any packaging capsules (even the most natural ones, gelatinous, etc., as they always weaken the qi spleen energy PI QI XU over time and cause moisture SHI) or tinctures (the content of herbs in them is suspiciously minimal according to thin layer chromatography. Moreover, any alcohol contained in the tinctures always brings moisture and heat SHI/RE to the body…), or raw mixtures of herbs SAN or TANG, which unfortunately cannot be imported from Asia without either containing excessive pesticides or micro-moulds.
The following use is also possible:
Herbal tablets can be taken in the usual dose of 4 tablets 3 times a day or 6 tablets 2 times a day. In children we follow the age, e.g. 1 year – 1 tablet 3 times a day (e.g. a 4-year-old child can take 3×2 tablets per day). The principle of “a large hole requires a large patch” applies here, or, in other words, dosage can be adjusted according to the state and intensity of the patient’s problems, especially in acute conditions (viruses, acute inflammations, painful conditions, etc.). So in China they use a dose of up to 2-3 times higher, i.e. up to 5×8 tbl per day at the beginning of the disease, and gradually reduce the dose according to the remission of the problem. (As a Czech proberb says, “You can’t extinguish a burning stack with a bucket of water”). The tablets are usually taken on an empty stomach at least 15 minutes before a meal or 30 minutes after a meal with warm water. If you are taking pharmaceutical medicines, NEVER use them with herbal products at the same time! The rule applies that herbal products are always taken before meals (about 1/2 hour) and chemical medicines after meals (preferably 1 hour from the time the herbs were taken).
|In terms of quality and quantity of herbs and our unprecedented testing of each batch (among other things on 511 types of pesticides), our herbal tablets and beverages are among the best avalaible in today’s Chinese medicine.|
