QA- The MediHerb® Way

Our commitment to quality governs all aspects from sourcing to bottle to ensure our practitioners and their patients have the most optimal herbal extracts in the world. Over the years, we have found many issues relating to quality, safety and efficacy. Our stringent testing regimes guard against substitution, adulteration and poor quality.

Identity and Purity

The Quality Control Laboratory analyse a sample from every batch and only accept the herbs that meet or exceed the strict quality criteria.

Depending upon the specific herb, the quality assurance process includes testing herbs for: 

  • Colour
  • Aroma
  • Texture
  • Validation (species, part plant)
  • Efficacy (actives, phytochemical profile) 
  • Identification (Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) fingerprinting)
  • Microbial levels
  • Amount of extraneous matter
  • Pesticides 
  • Heavy metals
  • Aflatoxins
  • Radiation levels

This ensures that the herbs approved for use in MediHerb products are of the correct species, are the correct plant part, have the correct active constituent profile and are free from contamination.
