Kevin’s short holiday report on his herbal adventure in Taiwan

Clients often ask us about supply and safety, so if you have a minute read Kevins short holiday report on his herbal adventure in Taiwan. 

Kevin recently spent a short time in hot/humid Taiwan and took this opportunity to visit one of our largest Herbal Companies, Kaiser Pharmaceuticals Co. Ltd. in the lovely city of Tainan in southern Taiwan. Kaiser one of the worlds largest suppliers of Chinese Herbal Medicines, supplies North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and the Middle East.

Kevin was keen to view Kaisers processing plant and manufacturing line first hand. He is pleased to report that he was suitably impressed by the high standard of its automated equipment and Kaisers technology to ensure patient safety (this is a top priority for us as practitioners).

Herbs are generally sourced from China, shipped to Taiwan for processing under stringent international standards which are world class. All batches of products under-go the following standard analyses

  • Species Authentication
  • Pesticide Residual Detection
  • Heavy Metal Detection
  • Microbial Testing
  • Aflatoxin Detection
  • Aristolochic Acid Detection

The laboratories are able to perform other analyses as requested by the client, Kaiser is also involved in world research and is dedicated to improving the production process and monitoring all products to ensure the finest quality.

The House of Fertility and Healing utilises many of these products, mainly the line of KPC herbal medicines, if you have any questions in regards to herb safety please contact Kevin at the House of Fertility and Healing.
