Quality & Safety Control of Ginseng
China has an ongoing problem with high pesticide residues. This is because the Chinese government used pesticides in the Changbai mountains (長白山) in order to protect the forests during the 1960's. In addition, local farmers use pesticides to reduce plant diseases due to insects and pests. In order to verify our ginseng's quality. Sun Ten has invested resources to develop an advanced laboratory testing facility to conduct analytic testing for heavy metals and pesticide residues in raw source materials. We also commission an international third party lab testing organization, SGS, to perform the testing. Sun Ten's ginseng does indeed meet the required safety standards proving the quality and safety of our ginseng is reliable and trustworthy.

Selection of Six-year-old Ginseng Roots
The active constituents of ginseng roots are called ginsenosides. It has been determined that the total ginsenosides level of ginseng roots reach their peak at six years of age. After the seventh year; though the amount of ginsenosides may increase. the growth is very slow. In order to provide high quality and efficacy of their premium ginseng. Sun Ten selects only six-year-old ginseng with high levels of active constituents as their source material.
