The food safety law of the people's Republic of China clearly stipulates: "according to tradition, the list of substances that are both food and traditional Chinese medicine is formulated and published by the health administration department of the State Council." It is understood that China has approved 87 kinds of traditional Chinese medicines that are "homologous to medicine and food" as health products, such as common white lentils, Euryale ferox, jujube, honey, Siraitia grosvenorii, chrysanthemum, peach kernel, mulberry, longan and so on; Another 114 kinds of traditional Chinese medicines or their active ingredients are also allowed to be used in the processing and use of health food. Such as tortoise shell, Schisandra chinensis, ginseng, acanthopanax senticosus bark, Pseudostellaria heterophylla, Gastrodia elata, Polygonum multiflorum, etc. There are 59 kinds of traditional Chinese medicines that cannot be used as health food due to obvious toxic and side effects, such as Croton, Fugu, nux vomica, Chuanwu, Cao Wu, etc.
Prunella vulgaris, Ganoderma lucidum, Cordyceps sinensis, pearl powder, Astragalus membranaceus, etc., strictly speaking, are not common foods with the same origin of medicine and food, are all drugs, and cannot be sold as common foods. Herbal tea mostly contains these drugs, so herbal tea is medicine. Even if it is a health drink with the same origin of medicine and food, the choice of traditional Chinese medicine as a health medicine that can be widely and long-term used is generally "neutral", and the long-term use of these drugs generally will not have much problem. Whether it is cold (cool) or hot (warm), it is generally not suitable for long-term use. For patients or healthy people with cold and heat symptoms, you can choose some biased traditional Chinese medicine, but you need to choose based on syndrome differentiation.
