    Quality Assurance

    *Gan Cao bulk herb we sell is of premium quality. Our bulk Chinese herbs are mostly wild harvested but some herbs are farm grown to protect their natural habitats and meet increasing market demands. The harvests of right species at proper maturity are identified by experienced professionals, cleaned, cut or sliced, and dried. In many cases, special processing methods such as soaking with rice wine, steaming, roasting are applied as mandated by traditional Chinese medicine traditions to prepare the Chinese herbs to achieve desired properties, enhance efficacy, and reduce toxicity.


    Use single Chinese herbs or herbal extracts with caution. Professional advice is suggested. In TCM, Chinese herbs are mostly combined in the context of formulas to enhance each other's desirable action and to minimize any potential side effect.
