The Mission of Blue Dragon Herbs™ is to bring the healing power of Chinese herbs, to the United States, in all their original potency, yet unadulterated by the toxins of modern chemical herb farming.
At Blue Dragon, we grow our herbs in the same locations and using the same methods that have been used for hundreds and thousands of years.
The soil is fertilized naturally, with compost and the use of crop rotation, instead of chemical fertilizers. In place of insecticides, our farmers use the naturally effective juice of fresh herbs such as Chrysanthemum, Wild Ginger or Ephedra Stem. Instead of herbicides, our farmers take care of weeds the old-fashioned way, pulling them out by hand one by one. The difference is vitally important for the health of our farmers, our patients, ourselves, future generations, and the health of the Earth itself.
The following points differentiate the quality and commitment of Blue Dragon Herbs:
The Highest Percentage of USDA Certified Organic Content By Far of Any TCM Herb Company.
88% of the herbs used in our formulas are either organically grown or wild-crafted organic. Many of our formulas have 100% organic ingredients.
Blue Dragon Herbs formulas are 100% Herb
We use no fillers or excipients such as magnesium stearate or corn starch. This increases potency and so lowers necessary dosages and costs considerably, while eliminating allergic reactions caused by some excipients.
We extract the active ingredients from our herbs with a rotating extractor that keeps the temperature below the boiling point. We do not burn our herbs. We also incorporate a trapping device which catches the herbal oils and reintroduces them into the final product. This increases potency considerably.
Our herbs are dried using an innovative room temperature process. Unlike high temperature ovens or low temperature freezers widely used by other companies, this process better preserves the potency and efficacy of the herbs.
The Organic Advantage
The active ingredients in organic herbs are believed to be 20 to 50% higher than conventional herbs. This is measured by comparing weight and size. For example, wild Ginseng can be ten times lighter than chemically cultivated Ginseng, but have ten times more ginsenosides.
A clean environment is the foundation of life on this planet. It is the basis for health in every organ, gland, tissue and cell in the body. The ancient Chinese culture understood this interconnection between man and the environment, and it was fundamental to the development of Traditional Chinese Medicine
De Dao Herbs
We always choose the correct location and genus of herb or “De Dao”, according to Shen Nong‘s Classic Compendeum of Materia Medica or Shen Nong Ben Cao, the first Pharmacopoeia of Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine.
Low Sulfur Content
We require less than 10 ppm (parts per million) versus many companies which allow between 30 and 150 ppm. Inorganic sulfur is a dangerous toxin that causes permanent brain, kidney and liver damage.
The Strictest Standards for Heavy Metal Content
Require testing on all herbs to European Common Market Standards, which are more stringent than the U.S. FDA.
Heavy Ion Beam Sterilization
HIBS avoids the toxicity of methods commonly used by other manufacturers for sterilization such as ultraviolet, chemical, sulfur dioxide or radiation which can cause cell mutations.
Our products contain no plant or animal byproducts that are either endangered or cannot be reproduced.
Derived from plant cellulose, entirely non-toxic and 100% natural
Lower Required Dosages = Lower Costs
When combining these innovations and advantages, the effect-dosage dynamic curve (which all companies use when determining effective dosage) indicates the superiority of our manufacturer’s methods. While other herb companies recommend taking 4 capsules 3 times daily, our average recommended dose is half of that, or only 3 capsules twice a day to achieve the same results. Higher potency means less capsules to swallow and lower overall costs.
The “4 GP’s” or Good Practices
GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) sets standards for air, water and soil purity. tGPP (traditional Good Processing Practices), guarantees processing of the herbs according to over 40 different traditional methods. Our herbs are processed at a full scale GMP-ISO 9001 factory that is 100% compliant with FDA‘s GMP standard. Finally, the factory also meets the FDA’s GLP (Good Laboratory Practices) standards. Our manufacturer contracts with two internationally recognized GLP labs: Shanghai Food and Drug Lab (sifdc,org.cn) and Hong Kong Science and Technology Park (hkstp.gov.hk). Our products are also assured by random checks by the U.S. FDA lab.
