While we are just less than 2 decades old as an ingredient supplier, our history goes much farther back than that. Scientists and engineers that later became the core of Draco’s technical team began working on the principles of Full Spectrum Standardized herbal extraction as early as the 1980’s. In the early days our scientists worked with the renowned Shanghai Medical Institute to develop these concepts. These ideas were developed in the early 1990’s into technology that was ready for full scale deployment by 1995.
However, all of this is still recent history. The basis for our understanding of herbal extraction and formulation truly goes back into the mists of time as we draw on over 5,000 years of accumulated wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine. TCM is a system of medicine that has woven a continuous thread through the culture of China, building over the centuries and millennia into a comprehensive empirical system of diagnosis and healing.
