formulation supports lung functions.
This is the classical Platycodon and Fritillary formulation used for centuries in Asia.
What distinguishes Dragon Herbs Platycodon
and Fritillary Combination from other brands is the quality of the herbs used to produce it, and the production technology.
ALL HERBS in China (and from most places) come in
different grades based upon their variety, seed stock, growing source, growing
conditions, care of the cultivators or collectors, and processing at various
stages of the supply chain and during production.
That’s a lot to consider. But Dragon Herbs
does take all these into account in selecting our raw materials and in
producing our herbal products.
and Fritillary Combination
is so widely consumed in China that many domestic herb factories produce it.
Most of this production uses low grade herbs for price reasons.
Dragon Herbs does not use low grade, less
effective, raw materials for Platycodon
and Fritillary Combination or
any of its products. Dragon Herbs identifies sources of the BEST raw material,
the kind preferred in Shanghai or Hong Kong by those who know herbs and want
the best. We use this premium material to produce this important formula.
Fritillary bulb is one of the outstanding herbs
used in Chinese herbalism. At whole herb markets, whole companies devote
themselves to collecting and distrusting Fritillary. The quality range is
dramatic from variety to variety. Naturally, many companies purchase very inexpensive
Fritillary. It is inexpensive because it is not very effective. Dragon Herbs
purchases and utilizes very high quality Fritillary, even though it is
considerably more expensive, because it is
significantly superior in effects.
Production technology also matters. Most factories
just throw the herbs into a tank and cook the whole thing for a couple of
hours, then they make a powdered extract of the tea
using a lot of excipient (usually not natural). Dragon Herbs uses low
temperature extraction using very pure water and no chemicals. We add the herbs
carefully at incremental stages. Some of the herbs in Platycodon and Fritillary
can only be cooked for a few minutes. These “short cook” herbs are
cooked separately and carefully and added at the end.
One very important process that most factories skip
involves the collection of aromatic oils
from the tea. Real Platycodon and
Fritillary Combination has a sweet-spicy aroma. This is from the aromatic oils in
the herbs. If the herbs are overcooked and the oils allowed to
evaporate, the true power of Platycodon and Fritillary cannot be
achieved – even if good quality herbs are used.
Dragon Herbs always processes it herbs using an
“oil trap.” An oil trap is a sophisticated device connected to the
extraction system. It captures evaporating aromatic oils and collects them in
crystallized form. These collected aromatic oils are therefore not lost. They
are added back into the extract at the end of the process. And this makes ALL

present in most other brands of powdered extract. It is something we pay extra
for, but you the customer doesn’t. We know that for an herbal extract to
