Tango Advanced Nutrition’s herbal supplements are based exclusively on Tonic Herbalism – the practice of combining traditional ‘tonic herbs’ into formulas that offer a synergistic effect far greater than that possible from individual herbs. The core tenet of tonic herbalism is that regular consumption of tonic herbs can aid the body in maintaining its self-regulatory capacity for optimal health.
Tonic herbs, also referred to as “superior herbs” in Traditional Chinese Medicine, are comprised of an “elite class” of only 60 of the approximately 3,000 herbs currently used in traditional herbal medicine. By definition, tonics can be taken continuously over a long period of time, yielding cumulative, long-term benefits without any unwanted side effects. Consistent daily consumption is the key to gaining the benefits of tonics.
All Tango formulas are based on the Jing or essence tonics, commonly referred to as “anti-aging” herbals and taken to prolong “the years of life without aging.”
In the United States, FDA approved drugs typically undergo three to five years of human testing before being approved for sale. By comparison, herbal nutrition has undergone a constant state of development and refinement for several thousand years, resulting in the accumulation of a large and sophisticated body of empirical knowledge, gathered over countless generations, revealing which herbal supplements are most capable of safely supporting human health.
All Tango Advanced Nutrition herbal supplements are put through an exhaustive, multilayered analytical testing program designed and overseen by Dr. Richard Ko, currently a senior FDA consulting scientist and former senior research scientist with the California Department of Health Services, Food and Drug Branch for 16 years. In his capacity Dr. Ko has been actively involved in regulating dietary supplements and investigating issues related to herbal products, as demonstrated by his numerous published peer reviewed papers in the New England Journal of Medicine, the Lancet and the Journal of Medical Toxicology.
Dr. Ko brings his unique perspective and guidance regarding herbal safety and efficacy, assuring that all of our herbal supplements and natural vitamins meets or exceed FDA and U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) safety standards for purity and quality.
Western medicine has historically viewed traditional herbal supplements with a high degree of skepticism. This situation is changing as more patients demand alternative health options free from the side effects of synthetic pharmaceuticals, and as more healthcare providers become aware of the growing body of peer-reviewed research supporting the safety and efficacy of natural vitamins, herbal nutrition and nootropics.
