Geoherbs possessed the best quality and curative effect due to their distinctive inside chemical ingredients/components. In recent years, a lot of achievements were obtained in geoherbs research on chemistry; however, there was also much confusion in existence. More and more studies revealed that the better curative effect on geoherbs was attributed to its architectural feature with steady and well-organized in unique ingredients/components constituent, but not for the characteristic single chemical ingredient. The "constituent structure theory" suggested that the material base of geoherbs consist of different components of which compatibility proportion relationship was optimal.
