– 604 Formulas/Single Herbs –
Why they’re special:
Cooked, not soaked. Fresh, not stale.
A taste that confirms high potency.
This is how to make TCM when higher potency is the goal, not mass-production.
The Staling of dried industrial TCM is our profession’s most important and most overlooked quality issue. As dry products are degrading daily, our alternatively made, cooked, liquid tea concentrates (not tinctures), protected with 20% alcohol, are 100% potent when you need them. Every time. All the time.
ABOUT JR13 TCM
30+ years experience. One gallon at a time. Ongoing improvement.
30+ years ago, a group of practitioners sharing a different perspective came together. We recognized that when a raw herb pharmacy was not accessible, practitioners had only bleak alternatives. “As good as it gets” was not good enough. Supported by unconventional inclinations, we pioneered radical changes to entrenched extraction/concentration methods. Rather than pursuing mass-production volume and marketing flair, we focused entirely on ways to produce a better concentrate for our patients; closer in capability to the prescriptions out of a raw herb pharmacy. As a private, innovative laboratory/pharmacy, we worked smart and made tangible progress.
Knowing herbs like the back of one’s hand does not amount to a hill of beans if the herbal medicine is weak.
Always lateral thinking:
Good things happen when the preparation is done by hand with skill and foresight. By remaining a small, precision operation, we can quickly implement new strategies to further elevate potency levels; one gallon at a time. Improvements are dynamic and ongoing. Passion over routine. No industrialized shortcuts. This is why after 30 years, we still love our work.

It takes years to earn a license
…but it doesn’t take long for weak herbal medicine to sink a practice. A really good acupuncturist may get by regardless, aided by the placebo effect – the simple act of taking a pill. But when the belief in the medicine combines with medicine that is actually powerful, patient satisfaction improves significantly.
Behind the flavor is the power
A strong flavor is a reliable indicator of high capability, as opposed to the weak flavor of low capability. Learn to tell a strong brand from a weak brand at the VITAL SIGNS page. Not personally doing taste-taste comparisons is not doing everything possible to ensure a successful practice.
