Where to buy Thunder God Vine
Help and Tips
As explained here Learn > The Extracts, natural does not mean safe as the plant is very toxic.
Beware of Thunder God Vine capsules and powder that can be found on the Internet as they are not medicinal extracts. Sellers buy them from Alibaba website as cheap as 20 USD per kilo, and sell it as remedy.
These are simple extracts of Thunder God Vine. By that I mean they are easy to produce and use simple solvents : water and ethanol (alcohol). While they have a positive effect on autoimmunity, they were never considered in medicine practice due to toxicity.
There is a strong local production because it is used as a natural insecticide. For more information, you may type “Tripterygium wilfordii insecticide” in your favorite search engine to find related articles.
Bear in mind !
Bear in mind that I am only a patient here. I am not promoting a product or a doctor.
There exist many brands of Thunder God Vine Medicinal extract (see lower in this page). They are available from drugstores and hospitals in China with a prescription. Similarly, any rheumatologist in China will be able to prescribe it to you if your condition requires it.
Commercial presentations of medicinal Thunder God Vine
These are commercial presentations of medicinal Thunder God Vine. Presentations are always the same: bottles of 50 or 100 tablets. The dosage is specific, at 1 to 1,5 mg/kg/day and the tablets always of 10mg. Please note that they are not supplements and should be taken under guidance of a physician.
You can buy these presentations in China with a prescription from a drugstore or from a hospital.
I have used the below commercial brands myself and a couple more. My favorite are the left ones, the blue and the yellow boxes. It’s actually the same brand, one in bottle of 50 and the other 100 tablets. The tablets are powdery and a little bitter with a light taste and smell of herb.
The middle one is fine too and exists in boxes of 100 (green boxes). The right one brand name 999, I wouldn’t recommend. I have used it too for a period and have noticed no difference, but the color of the tablets is a weird blue and they have a strong smell.
