Dr. Albert Leung established Phyto-Technologies, Inc. in 1995 as a
manufacturing facility to enable him to oversee and control the
production of one of the first herbal drinks he developed.
That’s how important quality is to us! Only by sourcing
correctly identified raw herbs of the highest quality and producing
whole extracts following traditional practices could Dr. Leung know
that he was making the best product possible for his client.
Since then Phyto-Tech has grown to become a formulator and
manufacturer of many herbal blends incorporated into herbal products
for various clients in wholesale, multilevel marketing (MLM) and
retail distribution channels worldwide.
Our passion has always been to develop new phyto technologies
necessary to bring traditional medicine into the 21st century and
that has been our fastest area of growth. Phyto-Technologies’
commitment to herb research and technology was solidified with an
award from the National Institutes of Health, National Center for
Complementary and Alternative Medicine in the amount of $1.4 million over
three years to unlock the secret of feverfew’s ability to prevent
migraines. Although this research is ongoing, it started us on
a path of extensive characterization of botanicals with a keen eye
to traditional use. The process has yielded a wealth of information
about the physicochemical, biological and genetic profiles
(fingerprints) of other botanicals. The end product will be a research-grade
botanical reference material for use in quality control, research
and development and product support.
From the beginning, we have actively participated in the improvement
of our industry through personal and corporate associations with
members of government, academia and industry. We are steadfast
members of the American Herbal Products Association. Also, we
collaborate heavily with many reputable organizations in Hong Kong
China toward the development of a network for the modernization of
Chinese medicine, including the Baptist University of Hong Kong and
the Institute of Chinese Materia Medica in Beijing.
Our location in Woodbine, a small rural community in southwest Iowa
has provided us with a staff of very well-rounded globally aware
citizens committed to improving the health and well being of others.
