About our herbs
As a practitioner entrusted with the care of someone’s health it is important to be sure of the quality of the medicines you are supplying.
To ensure the highest standards of product quality are maintained, The Herb Booth only purchases from manufacturers in China and Taiwan who are certified by the Australian TGA that they operate in accordance with the Australian Code of GMP for Medicinal Products.
Stock shipments from China are temperature monitored throughout their journey to ensure the extracts are not exposed to conditions which may affect their quality. Onsite, the herbs are kept in temperature controlled storage.
Each shipment is subjected to a series of quality checks. Each herb is accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis which is checked against our own specifications. These checks ensure that the correct species has been identified and it has undergone appropriate chemical and microbiological testing.
The tests that must comply with our specifications are:
- Correct species identification (usually via thin layer chromatography)
- Heavy metals
- Pesticides
- Total bacteria
- Yeast and moulds
- E. coli
- Salmonella
- Bile tolerant gram negative bacteria
Additionally, we conduct our own random independent testing to ensure the certificates are correct.
We only supply concentrated extracts (granules/powders). We don’t work with raw herbs or any pre-blended formulations.
Our extracts have a concentration ratio of 5:1. The bulk of our stock uses potato starch as the excipient. A small portion uses maize-derived maltdextrin.
The Herb Booth stocks several endangered species whose trade is monitored by the Convention for the International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES). Their use is legally and ethically permissible via CITES export and import certificates which confirms their farmed or artificially propagated source. The Herb Booth never trades in endangered species without the correct CTIES certification.
