Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM) are usually prepared by mashing and boiling in water. This process is called decoction. Thereby, health beneficial compounds are extracted from herbal and plant material. If not directly administered, these extracts can be preserved for a longer shelf life using lyophilisation. In this Short Note we highlight the lyophilisation procedure of Tianma Gouteng Yin (TGY), as a TCM model decoction. TGY is a widely used medicine applied to treat Parkinson’s disease (PD) like symptoms. Recently, it has been reported that this TCM decoction exerts neuroprotective effects in animal and cell models of PD.
