a.k.a. Cinnamon and Poria
This is the classical Cinnamon and Poria Combination formulation
used for centuries in Asia. What distinguishes Dragon Herbs Cinnamon and Poria Combination from
other brands is the quality of the
herbs used to produce it, and the production
ALL HERBS from around the world 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. The use of production
chemicals can ruin the quality of an herb due to the toxicity of the chemicals.
We all want to avoid pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, water
pollutants, etc., but lower quality herbs are often riddled with these
chemicals (these tainted herbs cost less, but the consumer pays with their
That’s a lot to consider. But Dragon Herbs takes
all these factors into account in selecting our raw materials and in producing
our herbal products.
Cinnamon and Poria 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, including herbs
grown and processed with pesticides, and herbs that have been irradiated, etc.
Dragon Herbs does not use low grade, less
effective, raw materials for Cinnamon and Poria Combination or
any of its products. Dragon Herbs identifies sources of the BEST raw material,
the kind preferred in Hong Kong or Tokyo by those who know herbs and want the
best. We use this premium material to produce this important formula. Every
herb is tested for pesticides and other chemical residues prior to and after
production to assure that the original herb and finished product are free of
chemical and microbial contaminants.
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 Cinnamon and Poria Combination can
only be cooked for a few minutes. These “short cook” herbs are cooked
separately and carefully added at the end.
One very important process that most factories skip
involves the collection of aromatic oils
from the tea. Real Cinnamon and Poria Combination has
a distinctive aroma. This is from the aromatic oils in the herbs. If the herbs
are overcooked and the oils are allowed to evaporate away, the true power of Cinnamon and
Poria Combination 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 technologically 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.
When you smell Dragon
Herbs Cinnamon and Poria Combination, and
other Dragon Herbs powdered extracts, you can always smell the aromatic oils.
These oils are not present in most other brands of powdered extract. It is
something we pay extra for, but it makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE! We know that for
an herbal extract to work, it must be made correctly and with the best
technology available in the world.*
