The Great Regulator supports the immune systems
of normal healthy individuals. It also supports the functions of the liver and
respiratory systems. In addition, it has a Qi tonic component. Our formulation
is standardized to the main bio-active component known as Baicalin (a component of the herb
Scutellaria, one of the formulation’s primary
ingredients). This is the main formula in classical Chinese herbalism for
regulating Qi, thus the name “The Great Regulator.” This product
was formerly called Activated Minor Bupleurum
This is the classical “Minor
Bupleurum Formula” (modified by
standardization) used for nearly eighteen centuries in Asia. What distinguishes
Minor Bupleurum Formula (The Great Regulator) from
other brands is the quality of the herbs used to produce it,the production technology, and the standardization
of a major component to achieve optimum activity.
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.
a lot to consider. But Dragon Herbs does take ALL factors these into account in
selecting our raw materials and in producing our herbal products.
The Great Regulator is so widely consumed in
China that many domestic herb factories produce it. Most of this production
uses low grade herbs for price reasons. Many of the peasants of China take The Great Regulator, so many factories produce it
with very cheap materials so that it costs just pennies.
Herbs does not use low grade, less effective, raw materials for The Great Regulator 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.
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 The Great Regulator can
only be cooked for a few minutes. These “short cook” herbs are
cooked separately and carefully and added at the end. For example, Fresh Ginger
rhizome in The Great Regulator must
be cooked just for a few minutes because of its aromatic oil content.
very important process that most factories skip involves the collection of aromatic oils from the tea. Real The Great Regulator has a sweet-spicy
aroma. This is from the aromatic oils in the herbs. If the herbs are overcooked
and the oils are allowed to evaporate, the true power of The Great Regulator cannot be achieved – even if good quality
herbs are used.
Herbs always processes its 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 essential oils are therefore not lost. They are added back into the extract
at the end of the process.
addition, we at Dragon Herbs pay careful attention to research done on this and other classical formulations. It has been shown
that when the constituent Scutellaria is standardized
in this formula to 50% baicalin, that the Qi
regulating effects are optimized. So that is what we
do. And this makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!*
