Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture QING ZAO JIU FEI WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. This mixture is today very widely appreciated because it covers a whole range of allergic problems, from dry cough, shortness of breath, whistling on the chest, stuffy nose to itchy throat and nose. According to TCM, the attack of the external warm and dry wind FENG RE ZAO result sin damage to qi energy as well as to the lungs YIN (YIN is “oil that lubricates”, the lungs in our case). This invasion blocks the protective energy YANG, which then causes increased temperature not accompanied by chills and cold fever. It means that the harmful hot dryness ZAO RE penetrates deeper into the lungs FEI, blocking and turning the flow of their energy in the other direction FEI QI NI, i.e. up. This condition is manifested by symptoms such as headache, cough (without mucus), shortness of breath and whistling on the chest, possibly also fullness or pressure on the chest and pain under the ribs. The dryness results in dry, barking irritating cough (as in case of laryngitis or whooping cough), dry nose (allergic rhinitis from nasal congestion), dry to parched throat, dry tongue, thirst, agitation and irritability. All in all – this herbal mixture is indicated against insufficient YIN and Qi of the lungs (regenerates the lungs) along with an attack of the external hot dry wind (eliminates external harmful substances).

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!
