Commitment to Quality

During the past 40 years, we have been committed to providing products of the highest quality. We have carefully chosen exceptional manufacturing partners to create our products. Starting materials are tested and species verified, then processed according to strict manufacturing specifications. Extensive laboratory testing throughout the process confirms quality standards are met, and results are routinely verified by laboratory testing conducted in the US. The quality, processing and testing standards of our products are based on requirements outlined in the Pharmacopoeia of the People’s Republic of China to ensure that our products are medicine grade. Our commitment to quality in every aspect has resulted in safe, high quality products you and your patients have trusted since 1969.

Product Excipients

We are committed to using as few food additives in the preparation of our Plum Flower® products as possible. Nevertheless, we are sometimes compelled to use excipients in certain products to ensure their quality and effectiveness. Excipients do not directly impact the metabolism of herbal compounds, but help to improve bioavailability and solubility, aid in forming pills, tablets or powders, and can stabilize and protect active substances.
