Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This herbal mixture is intended to unblock blood YU XUE, i.e. it enlivens and stirs up blood XUE, supports blood flow, clear pathways and blood vessels and dissolves clogs ZHU YU. The term “blood block” YU XUE refers to the condition of a clogged gutter, when blood accumulates on the one hand (swelling, stiffness, tumour types, cysts, goitre, etc.) and, on the other hand, the vital blood and energy does not get below the clogged gutter, which is manifested in the insufficient nutrition of these organs and pathways (e.g. matt blacking skin) and in particular through fixed pains – e.g. headaches and pains anywhere on the body, pains in case of injuries and wounds, menstrual pain… (according to Chinese medicine, each “pain is the tissue’s hunger for energy”). After some time the gutter may swell up and crack (e.g. ruptured cysts, metastases, skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema). In hyperbole, this mixture is a chimney-sweep who cleans a clogged chimney and pokes through the clogged tunnel and makes it passable every day. It is therefore necessary to open the sluice gates and let some water off so we get out of any problems and not get stuck between a rock and a hard place!

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!
