was aided financially by Tasly Group.
Tasly Danshen Plantation Base is located in Shangluo Prefecture in Shanxi Province where
the mountains are commanding, lush trees thriving and clear streams meander among white
stones. Sanqi plantation is located in Guangxi in Yunnan Province in the upper reaches of
the Pearl River’s highest elevation. This area has the ideal climate for Sanqi growth i.e. long
summers, warm winters, rich thermal energy, soft and slightly acidic soil – the ideal
‘hometown’ for Sanqi. The long distance from traffic and crowded cities, the unpolluted
environment and the abundant source of water provide an ideal environment for Sanqi’s
growth. The Tasly Borneol Planation Base sits on the western border area of Hunan
Province. The magical and beautiful Wuling Mountain enters the territory from the east and
the site has the physical form of a plateau and the features of a mountainous area. The
summers are not hot and winters not cold. It is suitable for the growth of tropical and cold

All world class herbal medicines must adhere to certain principles such as safety, definite
efficiency and control of quality, must be well documented and studied and must meet GAP,
GEP, GMP, GSP, GLP, and GCP. No other herbal manufacturer has such strict quality
standards as outlined below.
GAP (Good Agricultural Practice): Tasly first adopted GAP in the development and production of Danshenform. It requires standardization of herbal plantations so that each herbal plant is the uniform in size, efficacy and quality of ingredients. Each plantation is well regulated and documented to maintain quality of soil and prevent heavy metals from entering the plantation. Keeping it green and clean is the key to the highest quality Danshen, Sanqi and Borneol herbal plant.
GEP (Good Extracting Practice): GEP is a scientific management and quality control system and is applied to the process of extraction using Chinese medicinal herbs as raw materials. The implementation of GEP has put the complete process of TCM extraction, processing and production under scientific management and quality control and thus assured the expected quality and avoid potential problems such as mixing of herbs and pollution. GEP is the criteria governing an important process, which cannot be substituted by GAP or GMP.
GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice): GMP are the practices required in order to conform to guidelines recommended by agencies that control authorization and licensing for manufacture and sale of food, drug products, and active pharmaceutical products. These guidelines provide specific requirements that a pharmaceutical manufacturer must meet to assure that the products are of high quality and do not pose any risk to the consumer or public.
GSP (Good Surveillance Practice): Best practices for surveillance of health-care and medicine production facilities to ensure that highest international standards are implemented and followed.
GLP (Good Laboratory Practice): GLP embodies a set of principles that provides a framework within which laboratory studies are planned, performed, monitored, recorded, reported and archived. GLP helps assure regulatory authorities that the data submitted are a true reflection of the results obtained during the study and can therefore be relied upon when making risk/safety assessments.
GCP (Good Clinical Practice): GCP enforces tight guidelines on ethical aspects of a clinical study. High standards are required in terms of comprehensive documentation for the clinical protocol, record keeping, training, and facilities, including computers and software. Quality assurance and inspections ensure that these standards are achieved. GCP aims to ensure that the studies are scientifically authentic and that the clinical properties of the investigational product are properly documented. GCP guidelines provides assurance of the safety and efficacy of the newly developed compounds. GCP guidelines include standards on how clinical trials should be conducted, define the roles and responsibilities of clinical trial sponsors, clinical research investigators, and monitors.

products are fake and may be injurious to you health.
The best way to avoid counterfeit drugs or cheap copies is to purchase medications from a
reputable chemist with which you are familiar. Many companies in Pakistan market fake
Danshenform Compound. They claim that it contains dripping pills but instead use low
quality powder for capsuling, soft gels or granules that they claim are dripping pills. Some
suggest you to open up the capsule and ingest powder, which is potentially fatal.
Remember this is your health and your loved ones health. Do not compromise on quality.
There is only one original Danshenform Compound, which is TriCardin and only one
dripping pills formula in the world which is used by Tasly to produce TriCardin. There is no
substitute and uses no other name. Only TriCardin has the highest quality standards and
decades of research - the cheap fakes are low quality and have not science behind their
claims. Ask for TriCardin by name and reject fake, counterfeit products in the market
today. Fake products quality is suspect and their manufacturers are not certified nor do they
have any quality controls.
