To produce teapills, an herbal “dough” must be formed from this concentrated paste. We avoid adding inert fillers by powdering one or more raw herbs from the original formula and adding them to create a highly concentrated paste. The dough is rolled out and machine cut into small round pieces that are then spun into our superior quality teapills.
In the final stage, activated carbon is added for smoothness. The teapills are coated with a fine layer of botanical wax to provide for easier swallowing and to help naturally preserve freshness. These excipients combined make up less than 1% of the pill.
Finished batches of teapills are tested for various quality assurance parameters including active ingredient constituents, moisture content, disintegration time, heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium) and microbial contamination. These tests are performed on every batch of finished product. Following extensive in–house testing, heavy metal testing is conducted again at third party accredited labs to confirm results and to ensure that our standards of purity and safety are met.
