This is a classical formulation. What distinguishes Dragon Herbs classic formulations from other brands is the quality of the herbs used to produce it and the production technology.
ALL 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.
That’s 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.
OptDigest™ 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 OptDigest™‚ so many factories produce it with very cheap materials so that it costs just pennies.
Dragon Herbs does not use low grade‚ less effective‚ raw materials for OptDigest™ 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.
Production 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 OptDigest™ can only be cooked for a few minutes. These “short cook” herbs are cooked separately and carefully and added at the end. For example‚ the Ginger rhizome‚ Aged Tangerine rind in OptDigest™ must be cooked just for a few minutes at most because of its aromatic oil content.
One very important process that most factories skip involves the collection of aromatic oils from the tea. Real OptDigest™ has a 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 OptDigest™ cannot be achieved – even if good quality herbs are used.
Dragon Herbs always processes it 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 blended back into the extract at the end of the process. The function of OptDigest™ is completely dependent upon the presence of the aromatic oils. And all the oils that were in the original herbs are in the final powder inside the capsule. And this makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
