How do I select the different forms of herbal medicine?

It all depends how you want to take your herbal medicine, some people prioritise convenience due to lifestyle; some might emphasise on efficacy and that is why they come to Chinese Medicine. However, it also depends on the urgency of treatment. Raw Herbs & Raw Herbs Powder work the best as it has been proven over a thousand of years. Granule and patent pills had been used for the last 60 years, they had been processed by adding starch and other filler agents, and the efficacy and potency may reduce over time. Please check the blog for more a detailed analysis, but it is general guidance only, you should consult your local practitioner for individual circumstances.

Why should I use certified herbs?

While many claims to be pesticide tested, you should always check if it is independently tested according to the European standard, or Australian Standard rather the manufacturer’s own standard.

At Chinese Herbs Online, we source our herbs that are compliance-tested both in-house according to Chinese Pharmacopoeia, and, tested by leading independent laboratory Eurofins Germanya worldwide leading analytical and testing laboratory service. As European standards are superior to the current Australian standards, we can assure our practitioners and clients that our herbs are safe from pesticides and heavy metals, and within the most stringent existing standards for herb importation into Europe.
