They arranged to have the herbs grown in the best locations in China without the use of chemicals, contaminants and sulfites. Just like in the United States, there are areas where crops grow best, so it is the same in China.
For example: The Chinese Ginseng Dr. Campbell uses comes from Jilin Province, where historically, is the location where Ginseng in China originated. Because of the demand for ginseng, it is not always grown as nature had intended. Most ginseng on the market is grown with the use of chemical fertilizers and fungicides. One might wonder why they use chemical fertilizers and fungicides. Well, ginseng has become a commodity and in order to meet the world's demand for ginseng, they put these chemicals on the ginseng which end up going into the individual consuming them. The reason fungicide is used is because when you grow too many roots close together, the plants are not as healthy as they are suppose to be and they develop fungus, so to counter that, they put the fungicide. Whereas if the plants were grown the way nature intended for them, growing healthy with nutrients from the soil, there is no need for the fungicide as the plant is strong enough to resist any fungal infection and the individual who consumes the plant will be imparted with the strength, health, vitality, and nutrients that the plant has.
