The Ultimate Super Tonics
Chinese tonic herbalism is still the most sophisticated and effective herbal system in the world. It differs from other herbal systems in that it emphasizes the promotion of health rather than the elimination of disease. Of the several thousand herbs used in the Chinese herbal system, there is an elite group of about sixty herbs known as the "tonic herbs," also known as the “superior herbs." The most famous and important herbs associated with Asian herbalism all fall into this “tonic” (“superior herb”) category.
