It reported that Chinese medicine is a treasure of traditional Chinese culture. However in recent years, “Western medicine” popular in the domestic market. Our medicines are exported to foreign countries, the after processing into “Kampo preparations”, and then sold back to the Chinese market. Although the price of similar products several times, but still can not stop people from buying.
For example, after the German companies with the purchase price of a few dollars per kilogram Chinese rough leaves, deep processing of research into cholesterol-lowering drugs, the price of up to several hundred dollars. Ancient Chinese side “Liushen”, was the transformation of Japan developed a “rescue Pill”, creating more than 100 million US dollars per year in sales miracle.
The same gene, why a country trip, not only to sell a good price, but also became a best seller? Fourth Clinical Medical College of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine Dean Wang Chengxiang think, compared to foreign drugs through the deep processing of value-added products improve, the domestic production mostly in the early stages.
Our drugs, including health care products are at relatively early stages in the processing and packaging, we do still not enough. The industry believes that “Western medicine” has been favored by consumers, strict quality standards is an important reason, and this is precisely the biggest weakness of traditional Chinese medicine industry. Lack of quality standards, allow domestic Chinese medicine into a “quality crisis.”
