Our approach in formulating traditional TCM remedies like Golden Book is to use the most potent botanical concentrates available so that we can maximize the therapeutic effects of each capsule.
The herbal ratios are adjusted to maintain the integrity of the time proven formulations.
In this way, we achieve the therapeutic intent of the original formulation without having to take large quantities of herbal teas that are often very difficult for the palate.
We also avoid the use of additives like wax and talc that are used to make the herbal extracts into teapills.
