About ChinaHerb and Our Products

Chinaherb (Pty) Ltd, a Cape Town based company, was founded in 1997. After inheriting the essence of a profound knowledge, transmitted for millennia through Chinese Medicine, Dr Chunlan Li and Prof. Yi Zhang developed the Chinese medicine formula range, commonly known as the Chinaherb (Pty) Ltd Range.

Chinese herbal medicine has been utilized for more than 2000 years. Traditional terms such as Yin and Yang, cold and warm, nourish and clear are used to describe the herbal properties. The medicine consists mostly of plant roots, while others of leaves, flowers, seeds and fruits.

The Chinaherb formula consists of a combination of these natural substances. The majority of the herbs in a formula will address the aspect of disharmony in the body. The focus of treatment may either be on the acute symptoms, or on the underlying root cause of the imbalance. Other herbs will either enhance this treatment, or will add another subsidiary treatment strategy. The remaining herbs either focus the treatment on certain parts of the body, or modify the effects of previously used herbs by boosting their function, or counteracting undesirable effects. The Chinaherb (Pty) Ltd Formula Range conforms to the internationally recognised GMP standard.

Throughout the period of Chinese Medicine practice, vast ranges of Chinese herbal formulae have been developed. These ranges were collected and recorded in the Treatise on Febrile Diseases (Shang Han Lun), and other works. It is widely accepted and found to be the most important formulae due to their brilliant combinations and excellent results. They were named as the Classical Formulae. Chinaherb (Pty) Ltd selected ranges of the classical formulae in addition to a number of new ones. The aim is to support practitioners with treatment of the common illnesses in the modern world using the best formulae.
