Botanicals in our Products

The earliest written records of nearly all civilizations mention the use of botanicals (vegetables and herbs) for healing. For over 3,000 years China preserved the written records of using plants for maintaining and promoting health and for healing various diseases, long before before the introduction of Western medicines in early twentieth century. In particular, a classic book on herbal usage and knowledge in China, Huangdi Neijing (translated as The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine), was created in the early Han period, between 2 and 3 thousand years ago.

More than 1200 years ago, Japan was introduced to the practice of traditional Chinese medicine by physicians from Korea. Their adaptation, Kampo medicine, has since been integrated into Japan's national health care system. Other Asian countries have also been heavily influenced by China and Japan and adopted the traditional practice of using botanicals for health and healing. WinVivo combined this time tested traditional knowledge with modern scientific research data to create products that can help promote the health of you and your family.
