Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture KANG GU ZENG SHENG WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. Long-lasting joint or back pains are often associated with the presence of uneven bones and joints, protuberances, which mechanically irritate adjacent tissues and nerve endings. These pains are not often acute and great, they are irritating because they persist and are always present. Other pathologies are formed in the vicinity of such affected areas, for example muscle cramps (spasms), stiffness, immovable parts. This restricts the possibilities of rehabilitation and the vicious circle is closed. This herbal mixture improves metabolism in the joints, adjacent ligaments and the respective muscle groups, prevents stiffness, thus helping exercise during rehabilitation. According to the terminology of Chinese medicine, it “smooths out” the affected bones or joints, allowing their proper function. It is particularly effective in conditions where the pain is not permanent but rather changes depending on weather changes, the time of the day or fatigue. It is suitable in particular for children (when the bone system is being built) and in people aged over 40 (when the bone system is undergoing a loss). In Western medicine these symptoms correspond to diseases such M. Osgood Schlatter (i.e. roughing and pains of the tibia in children), M. Scheurmann (i.e. pains of vertebrae in adolescents), arthrosis, calcar (i.e. deformation of bones and joints in adults).

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!
