Herbal granules are manufactured in Taiwan or China. They are concentrations of raw herbs. Usually, when patients need herbal medicine, we will first listen to patient’s complaints, check the patient’s tongue, pulse, observe their face, and ask some questions. 

Then we mix different herbs to be a herbal formula and filled into the capsules with a special tool. Each bottle contain 100 capsules. The dosage is around 3-5 capsules every after meal.

Herbal capsules are easy to take and carry. They are slow in absorption and therefore good for chronic and deficient conditions.
