Yang Sheng is a huge component of Chinese medicine. It is the practice of prevention by nurturing the mind, body and soul. We can do this partly by eating a nutritious diet and supplementing where required – with Phoenix Nutritional Supplements.
We offer a range of high-quality single herb supplement. They are made within our own in-house dispensary, using our renowned Tianjiang Pharmaceutical concentrated herbal granules and vegetarian capsules.
The main reason why we chose Tianjiang is because of their Spray Dry Granulation technology. Unlike other manufacturers who use ‘Fluid Bed Granulation’, we do not use cornstarch to absorb moisture. We only use a small amount of the gluten-free binder maltodextrin at 5-10% of the final product. This ensures our granules are 2-3 times higher in concentration than other brands on the market.
By offering Phoenix nutritional supplements, alongside a balanced and healthy diet, patients have an alternative to herbal medicines which can be complex and costly. Acupuncturists can recommend supplements for herbs without practising herbal medicine.
