Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1) Are your herbal formulas unsulfured?

All our formulas are pure extracts of a 5:1 high-concentration ratio.

3) Do you test for pesticides, heavy metals, and other contaminants?

All Traditions of Tao formulas are produced in accordance with the Good Manufacture Practice (GMP) and are tested for pesticide residues by strict controls for quality and safety and the results meet FDA standards. They are also tested for the presence of microorganisms, such as salmonella and e.coli. In addition, are formulas are randomly tested with a third party FDA-certified lab in the U.S.

4) When should patients take the concentrated herbal capsules?

Most of our formulas are best taken on an empty stomach either half an hour before or one hour after a meal. Taking them on an empty stomach will increase absorption.
