Quality & Safety
Quality and safety is a cornerstone of nuherbs Co. Throughout our 34 years in business our desire for excellence has lead us to the forefront of innovation. We chose an Australian TGA GMP facility to produce our Herbal Times® Teapills and Jade Dragon® Classical Formulas, making nuherbs Co. one of the first TCM companies in the United States to adopt GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices).
At the same time, we utilized several independent laboratories in the United States to ensure our teapills met our safety requirement for heavy metals, microbacteria, and other contaminants. Dual testing by independent laboratories in the United States and the factory’s in-house laboratories in China made our teapills one of the rare lines to ever be dual tested. After constant dual testing for over ten years with no conflicting data, we now use dual testing randomly to assure the accuracy of the factory’s in-house laboratories. As our company and product lines have expanded, nuherbs Co. has continued to apply this same rigor and attention to each of our products.
In addition to the laboratory testing required by the different GMPs, nuherbs Co. conducts additional testing for contaminants such as heavy metals, microbacteria, and pesticide residues.

nuherbs Co. is constantly seeking ways to improve the quality and safety of our products, any suggestions that you may have are always welcome.
What are Good Manufacturing Practices?
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are guidelines that govern the manufacturing process of a product to ensure that the quality and safety of the product is consistent. To ensure compliance and traceability, each step of the manufacturing process must be documented and adhere to its defined guidelines. By documenting the manufacturing process, validating the equipment used, and following preset guidelines, we ensure the quality of each lot of our products.
Our Herbal Times® Teapills and Jade Dragon® Classical Formulas are crafted at an Australian GMP facility, our Herbal Times® Herbal Extracts are produced at British Retail Consortium certified factory, and our newest addition, nuherbs® Lab Tested Herbs, are carefully processed according to traditional methods at a Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention/Scheme (PIC/S) GMP factory.
