This is the classical Gentiana Combination formulation used for
centuries in Asia. What distinguishes Dragon
Herbs Gentiana Combination from
other brands is the quality of the
herbs used to produce it, and the production
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.
Gentiana 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 Gentiana 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.
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 Gentiana Combination 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 Gentiana Combination has
a bitter-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 Gentiana 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 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
When you smell Dragon
Herbs Gentiana 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 you the customer doesn’t. We know that for an herbal extract
to work, it must be made correctly and with the best technology available in
