What are the benefits of using Teapills?
||First, Is the main reason.
No brewing or decocting the tea mixture to drink. The Teapills are
convenient, and can be easily taken with you, in a purse or pocket
Packaging: 200 pills
Recommended Dosage: 8 Teapills, 3 times per day. In general terms
usually taken with room temperature water, right before a meal.
Small pills are easy to swallow. Do remember though, these are
herbs, and at times the herbs are bitter, and you may taste this when
you are swallowing the small pea size pill. Unless otherwise noted on the bottle.
||Prior to processing,
raw herbs are randomly sampled and inspected to ensure that they meet strict quality control criteria before being blended into formulas.
The pills are small and easy to swallow. About the size of a pea. Classic
Formulas and Traditional Formula proven safe and effective.
||Teapills are made by
blending together the herbs in the formula, then slowly cooking the
mixture in water. This tea is simmered down into a concentrate, and
later formed into small pills. This method is the traditional way that
Chinese formulas have been prepared for thousands of years
||The Teapills are
combined synergist, to provide optimum effectiveness. In very general
terms, most of the Teapills utilize 5 to 20 herbs in one formula.
The percentages of an herb in a Teapill vary from .5% to 95%.
Teapills are unique.
||Each batch is tested
for pesticides in the U.S. and randomly to verify the results for heavy
metals and microbacteria. As well as in accordance with high
standards for quality and safety, the Teapills are factory and laboratory tested for contaminants.
||After the formulas are made
into pills, each batch is inspected for consistent shape, color, and
texture. Pills that fail this test are destroyed. The moisture content
and dissolution rate are also tested; to ensure the
full dosage is take.

“Other ingredients” or excipients used in making Teapills may include:
Talcum (hua shi): Used in the coating to add shine and
Activated carbon: Used in the coating for evenness of color and
Botanical wax: Used in the coating to provide for easier
swallowing and help naturally preserve freshness.
Maltose: Occasionally used when needed as a natural binder.
What are Teapills, and how are they made.
By using the teapills you avoid having to boil
the herbs, strain the herbs, and bottling the herbs. Teapills are
the size of a small pea. Very easy to swallow, and most
do leave an after taste in your mouth. My five pound Yorkie, Shoubi,
take her teapills every morning for her eyes. My other dog
TyZhu takes his as well, but he takes for eyes and allergies. Both take them
easily, without forcing them.
To produce teapills, a selected herb ingredient
from the formula is added as a powder to this highly concentrated
liquid to form a sort of herbal dough. The dough is rolled out and
machine cut into small round pieces that are then spun into our
superior quality teapills. In the final stage a tiny amount of
talcum (hua shi) is added for smoothness and the teapills are coated
with a fine layer of botanical wax for shine.
Jade Dragon® formulas get their start in the
regions of China where each herb grows best. Then the plants are
carefully harvested and dried to maximize their potency. After
harvesting, carefully selected herbs are taken to manufacturing
where master herbalists supervise each step to see that our family's
treasured formulas are carefully followed. We take extra steps
to make sure our facilities produce herbal formulas you can trust.
Jade Dragon® is manufactured at our Australian TGA GMP-certified
facility in Lanzhou, China. Jade Dragon® formulas are
repeatedly inspected and tested at each level of production, in
China and in the United States. Our factory has its own modern
laboratory to screen each batch before it is allowed to leave the
factory. Each batch is tested for pesticides in the U.S. and
randomly to verify the results for heavy metals and microbacterial.
