Description according to traditional Chinese medicine:
This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture GANODERMA LUCIDUM WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. Ling zhi (Ganoderma lucidum) is another mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine used since the 3rd century BC. Old Chinese masters say about Ling zhi (which is translated as “Beautiful Flower”) that it “resurrects even the dead and makes everyone stand on their feet again”; it has been therefore worshipped for centuries as a symbol of success and well-being. Ling zhi is a unique product boasting the name Medicine of Eternal Life. It is actually a natural recycling organism which produces its own nutrients. Ling zhi improves the function of 5 key organs of the human body: heart, lungs, liver, spleen and kidneys. Its basic effect is “support for the life essence and protection of the root of life”, i.e. improvement of the immune system, using our Western terminology; in this it differs from other types of treatment which either deal with the symptoms of the disease or simply supplement whatever the organism lacks. Ling zhi helps harmonize the organism at the physical, mental, spiritual and immunological level by ensuring the proper function of all organs. Old Taoist monks used it regularly to strengthen their memory, improve concentration and multiply wisdom.

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!
