Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: An old Chinese proverb says: “A painting is worth thousands of painters, a herb is worth thousands of doctors”, and this is even more true in this case. The herb Huang qin covers a broad range of problems of the modern person. Today’s times are fast, hectic and turbulent, we eat very quickly, fast food style. Food is generally accelerated, preserved, chemically treated, flavoured, emulsified, “coloured”, etc., and our emotions are not too cool, either; quite to the contrary, they are either strongly expressed or suppressed way too much… According to TCM, this all results in the generation of internal heat RE (and moisture SHI going hand in hand), which both plague and devour people today with miscellaneous civilization problems, difficulties and diseases. Their scope is enormous – from diverse allergies to foodstuffs, celiac disease, skin diseases (acne, eczema, psoriasis), high blood pressure, migraine, chronic bowel diseases with diarrhoea (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), high cholesterol and blood fat levels, chronic bronchitis, urinary infections and even repeated abortions in women. This product can be used virtually by anyone for body cleansing – 3 months in the autumn and 3 months in the spring as a universal cleansing regimen for the organism. The only contraindication according to TCM is inner cold in the spleen and stomach PI/WEI HAN XU, which is manifested by increased sensitivity to cold, cold limbs, loss of appetite, pale face, preference of hot drinks and water-thin stools.

Each batch of our herbal products is tested in the accredited Phytax laboratory for medicines in Schlieren (Switzerland). This testing identifies herbs, but also heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, and copper), bacteria (E. coli, salmonella, total number of bacteria), mould, yeasts and aflatoxins. TCM Herbs is the only supplier in Europe that tests each batch of herbs for all its herbal tablets. Among other things, the herbal products are tested for 511 types of pesticides (4 groups). This is because pesticides have become a worldwide problem, especially in products from the so-called third world. Customers buy herbal products in the belief that they are completely natural, but often these products are “contaminated” with other undesirable “chemicals”.
The herbal tablets and beverages from our company (TCM Herbs) are the only ones in Europe to have been additionally tested. Among others, our products are tested for 511 pesticides — and this number is continuously increasing due to the use of new pesticides. Pesticides are now becoming a global problem! Such a range of checks on pesticides cannot even be detected in laboratories in Europe. Neither is anyone testing it, because unfortunately European legislation does not require these examinations. This comprehensive testing of each batch, and each herb beyond the normal examinations does require considerable financial costs, but the quality of herbs and safety of our products is our absolute priority.
Laboratories are different
A certified laboratory for food supplements is obliged to examine the presence of heavy metals, fungi, and bacteria. However it only determines a smaller range of pesticides and its requirements for their quality content in herbs are lower.
On the other hand, a certified laboratory for medicines also identifies individual herbs and, in particular, tests the entire range of pesticides (at least 500 types) and has higher requirements for the quality in herbs. In the EU, there are only a few laboratories like that and the prices for their services are rightly high. Today, it is therefore very important to know which laboratory tests the dietary supplement and what the tests are focused on; if each batch and each herb are tested, or just a random sample, for how many pesticides, how many added ingredients and how many additional binding agents the product contains, etc. – otherwise consumers could be easily deceived and disappointed (you can find more details at Safety and Quality of TCM Herbs Products).
All our herbal products are tested in a certified laboratory for medicines.
The above information implies that herbal tablets and drinks of TCM Herbs are, in terms of quantity (concentration of herbs in the mixture is 5 times higher, i.e. 1 g of a herbal tablet equals 5 g of raw herbs) and quality (unprecedented testing of each batch), among the best products we can imagine and enjoy in terms of today’s natural medicines.
