About Sinoveda


The mission of our drug discovery program is to decode the complexity of natural medicines with advanced pharmaceutical technologies.


We believe you deserve to wake up each morning feeling energetic, pain-free, and confident exactly as you are. We believe you have the power to bounce back from health challenges and come out the other side radiating anew.


In 2006, we began SinoVeda with a simple premise: Healing should be a science. Since then, we’ve spent the past 15 years researching, developing, and manufacturing clinically proven and natural pharmaceuticals. Our formulas are designed to help you feel radiant from the inside, out.
