Starting out in 1973 with a small line of ginseng capsules and roots. Their mission is not to copy other companies products, but rather to fill the gaps and resolve the problems that are not currently being addressed in the marketplace. To fulfill this mission, they created a new company, GINCO International, in 1994 and began producing our own line of ginseng products under the brand name of Imperial Elixir.
They came to believe that many companies were buying powdered ginseng, with only the vendors word for its authenticity, purity and quality. In an effort to eliminate this possible quality gap, and using the experience and knowledge that they have in this field, they decided that they would only purchase the ginseng roots themselves. And then, only after they had approved the quality of the roots, would the ginseng be ground into powder for the capsules.
Although very satisfied with the results of these quality measures, they also have the raw materials assayed by independent laboratories and use cGMP contract manufacturers in the production of their products.
