Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture WU WEI XIAO DU WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. This mixture consists of five herbs which eliminate hot toxin RE DU from the skin and generally cool down excessive heat RE in the organism; therefore, in China it is called the “five-component poison-eliminating drink”. These herbs eliminate hot toxin RE DU from the organism, cool down heat RE and eliminate heat SHI, thereby reducing fever; translated into today’s language, they cleanse the blood. Hot poison RE DU refers to any inflammation (most often bacterial), manifested particularly on the body surface, with all its typical symptoms: fever, soreness, swelling, redness and limited function. These inflammations include all inflammations of the skin and of superficial mucous membranes (eyes, ears, nose, rectum, genitalia), accompanied by overall heat due to affluence (see 5 sings of inflammation above). According to Chinese medicine, this involves accumulated heat RE, moisture SHI and hot toxin RE DU in the specific area. These problems are most often caused by improper lifestyle (excessive consumption of greasy, fatty and spicy food), which results in the accumulation of internal heat RE or even hot toxin RE DU. Hot toxin RE DU pushes out of the body through the skin in the form of “small volcanoes on the slopes of a raging volcano”, as the Chinese call this condition poetically.

Each batch of herbs in our products is tested in the accredited laboratory for medicines Phytax in Schlieren, Switzerland, to identify herbs, but also heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, and copper), bacteria (E. coli, Salmonella, total number of bacteria), mould, yeasts and aflatoxins. Our company TCM Herbs is the only supplier in the Czech Republic to test each batch of herbs for all herbal tables, among others for 511 types of pesticides (4 groups) because pesticides today become a worldwide problem, especially in products from the so-called Third World. Customers, in the belief that they use herbal preparations, are often, by contrast, “contaminated” with other undesirable “chemicals”.

Each laboratory is different

A laboratory for dietary supplements is obliged to verify only the presence of heavy metals, mould and bacteria – but does not determine the content of pesticides. A certified laboratory for medicines, on the other hand, also identifies individual herbs and in particular tests the entire range of pesticides (at least 500 types and more). There are only a few laboratories like that in the EU and the price is adequately high. It is therefore very important today to know which laboratory tests the dietary supplement and what the tests focus on, if each batch and each herb or just a sample are tested, how many pesticides, how many additives and how many additional binding agents the product contains, etc. – otherwise consumers could be easily deceived and disappointed… (for details read Safety and quality of TCM Herbs products)

The above 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. that 1 g of a herbal tablet equals 5 g of raw herbs) and quality (absolutely unprecedented testing of each batch), among the best products we can imagine and enjoy in the area of today’s Chinese medicine and natural medicine at all!
