Chinese medicinal materials are the source of Chinese herbal medicine health foods and Chinese herbal medicine health products such as Chinese medicine and proprietary Chinese medicines. The safety of Chinese medicinal materials will directly affect the quality and safety of Chinese herbal medicine health products. Due to environmental pollution, improper storage, man-made adulteration, abuse of fertilizers and pesticides, and irregular processing, Chinese herbal medicines face serious exogenous safety problems. Residues of exogenous toxic and harmful substances (heavy metals and harmful elements, agricultural residues, mycotoxins, sulfur dioxide, etc.) of Chinese medicinal materials and related products have become important technical barriers to international trade in Chinese medicine. In addition, the harmful ingredients in Chinese herbal medicines are also derived from the endogenous harmful ingredients (such as aristolochic acid, Anthraquinone substances, etc.).
As the masses of the people pay more and more attention to life and health, people are paying more and more attention to the quality and safety of Chinese medicinal materials on the market. Continuously improving the quality and safety of Chinese medicinal materials is one of the important guarantees for the sustainable development of the Chinese medicinal materials industry.
Hongzhengdao applies the principle of HACCP safety risk management and combines the "Quality Management Standards for the Production of Chinese Medicinal Materials", starting from the site selection of Chinese medicinal materials, covering germplasm and seedlings, agricultural input, field management, harvesting, primary processing, processing, packaging Identification, analysis of Chinese herbal medicine safety risks in all links of the entire industrial chain including storage, transportation, and use. Committed to strengthening basic research, identifying substances and influencing factors of safety risks of medicinal materials, aiming to reduce or eliminate the safety risks of Chinese medicinal materials, and formulate risk response plans to ensure the safety of Chinese medicinal material-related products from the source. While actively carrying out research and application of strengthening pollution detection technology, research and application of new technologies and methods for controlling pollutants in the cultivation of Chinese medicinal materials are also being strengthened.
We have carried out a systematic safety risk assessment of more than 70 Chinese medicinal materials, and established a safety assessment model of Chinese medicinal materials to guide the safety risk assessment of Chinese medicinal materials.
