The Fame of IL HWA Korean Ginseng – Strict Quality Control
IL HWA has succeeded in producing a product that retains the superior quality and medicinal efficacy of Korean Ginseng, recognized by its well deserved name of the “Mystery of the Orient”.
IL HWA introduces the world’s best ginseng products by using outstanding technological power:
Only extracting the active ingredients and an intact fragrance from Korean Ginseng through the use of a low temperature, low pressure and vacuum extraction method.
Removing the infinitesimal amount of harmful substances through the use of a super-critical extraction machine.
By operating a quality control system that meets international standards through the ginseng KGMP and ISO 9001 Certificate, IL HWA is acknowledged as the world’s top ginseng maker by Germany, well known for its strict regulation of quality, as well as Japan, U.S.A., Norway among others.
Medical Research Breakthrough
IL HWA Central Research, the world’s Mecca of development for ginseng-related medicine, has conducted research into metabolism and mechanism of the Korean Ginseng saponin with a Japanese partner, Ildo Life-Science Research Institute. The research has succeeded in biosynthesizing IH-901, a new material from ginseng, and obtained patents in Korea as well as in other countries including the U.S and Canada.
As part of a strategic project sponsored by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the IL HWA Research Center carried out a joint study with the College of Pharmacy at Chungbuk University on the tissue distribution and transportation of hepato-billiary excretion of the anti-cancer compound IH-901, and discovered the remarkable efficacy of IH-901.
Advanced Technologies Accumulated Over 40 Years
IL HWA has conducted research on the saponin metabolism and mechanism based on know-how accumulated over 40 years of ginseng study, and has recently succeeded in biosynthesizing IH Propanaxatrial, a new material from ginseng. The research has developed an innovative fermentation method that can produce fermented ginseng extracts containing IH-901, a new ginseng material carrying remarkable biosynthesis abilities. IL HWA has demonstrated its superior technical capabilities by obtaining a patent for this material with respect to the manufacturing method and bioynthesis abilities beneficial to the human body.
Application of Manufacturing Technique Unique to IL HWA
IL HWA has introduced special manufacturing techniques to extract ginseng with the use of alcohol as the extraction solvent to fully maintain the active ingredients and the unique fragrance of Korean ginseng, and concentrate the extracted liquid under low temperature, low pressure and vacuum conditions. The high quality ginseng concentrate produced by IL HWA’s unique manufacturing techniques is used as the raw material to produce various types of ginseng products and favored by consumers all over the world.
Residual Chemical Removing Technologies
IL HWA owns a residual agricultural chemical remover, the only one available in the nation, that can extract infinitesimal amounts of harmful substances through a “super-critical fluid extraction system“, capable of removing only toxic material without affecting ginseng’s inherent components. The ginseng products thus produced by IL HWA are harmless to the human body so you can enjoy them with safety.
