The story began 80-some years ago in Taichung, Taiwan.  

Dr. Ri Tong Chang started Min Tong as a modest mom-and-pop herb shop in 1938 after years of apprenticeship with famed local practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  Min Tong’s herbal and patented formulas have become household names in Taiwanese medicine cabinets and home remedies.  Since the establishment of our first pharmaceutical factory in 1961, and the second one in 1981, Min Tong is now the oldest, and one of the largest and the most reputable herbal supplement companies in Asia.  

“Min Tong” means clarity and brightness, which embodies both the Sun and the Moon, the Yin and the Yang, of our universe.  It symbolizes the overarching principles of traditional Chinese medicine- the Yin and Yang’s different, and sometimes opposing forces, can coexist and even complement each other.   

Min Tong’s herbal products are a combination of traditional Chinese herbal pharmacology and modern science.  We have continuously expanded the boundaries of Chinese medicine development and production.   

We produce over 800 different Chinese herbal formulas and single herb extracts to provide our customers with the most complete and up-to-date treatment selections.  All of our products comply with and exceed cGMP standards.  We partner with one of the largest medical institutions in Taiwan, China Medical University, in Taichung, in a collaborative effort to provide our customers with the latest research findings.  In addition, Min Tong publishes the only medical journal in the industry with the intent to educate the consumers as well as TCM professionals with reports on medical breakthroughs in TCM.  We now export to the United States, Canada, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Australia, Japan, Singapore, and the People’s Republic of China.
