Heaven Drops Wild Ginseng -- 2 oz.
Born to be wild
Heaven Drops Wild
Ginseng is the crown jewel of
Dragon Herbs products. This is a very concentrated 6:1 extract (6 pounds of
herb yields 1 gallon of finished tincture). Ron Teeguarden personally supervises
EVERY step of production of Heaven Drops (from root selection, to final
bottling). The process is witnessed by other Dragon Herbs herbalists at all
steps. The technology used to extract the Ginseng is state-of-the-art and
captures every active bio-molecule available from the Ginseng roots. The
tincture is bottled in special German violet glass bottles to protect potency.
Heaven Drops features
very old wild Changbai Mountain Panax Ginseng roots (25-50 years of
pristine forest growth or older) valued as the finest, and most beneficial
Ginseng in the world. Heaven Drops also contains wild American Ginseng (Panax
quinquefolium) roots from the pristine forests of the Catskill
Mountains. These roots are prized in Asia at the same level as Changbai
Mountain wild Chinese Ginseng roots. A smaller proportion of Bhutanese Wild Ginseng
roots and Korean Wild Ginseng roots may round out this preparation, when
Wild Asian Ginseng
Since the very
beginning of herbalism in Asia, Ginseng has
been revered as the ultimate herb. It has, since deep antiquity, been
recognized as a tonic herb that promotes health, longevity, mental and sexual
health and physical vigor. Of course, thousands, and even just hundreds of
years ago, Ginseng was primarily available only to those who found it growing
wild in the pristine forests of Northeast China and other areas where related
varieties grew. Cultivation developed only in recent history, but since that
time, Ginseng has become one of the biggest natural commodities in the world.
Nevertheless, wild Ginseng is still considered to be the ultimate form of Ginseng. Some varieties
of cultivated Ginseng are also highly revered and coveted, but those in the
know continue to seek and find wild Ginseng.
Wild Ginseng has
always been, and continues to be, a rare and expensive herb. But in terms of value,
it is indeed quite reasonable. This is why Ron
Teeguarden has put so much time and effort into identifying
reliable sources of genuine wild Ginseng. Ginseng can be found growing in the
wild in the awesome mountains of northeastern China
(Manchuria), in the remote reaches of the Himalayas, and in the beautiful and
remote regions of the Catskill Mountains in North America.
There is never easy access to the growing areas where Ginseng can be found.
Ginseng hides, and it grows in odd
places not easily accessible to humans. Ginseng roots can live to be hundreds
of years old in the deep forests, in spite of the fact that humans seek it like
gold and forest animals eat it with gusto when they can.
Wild Ginseng is one
of the great prizes of Nature. It must be respected and appreciated to be of
utmost benefit to those who consume it. Heaven
Drops Wild Ginseng is made of a variety of wild Ginsengs. This is a unique
product, unmatched anywhere in the world. Each batch is slightly different from
any other before or after it. These are wild roots, many of which are decades
old and each with a character of their own. This is NOT a commercial product.
It is a piece of art, an exquisite expression of Nature. There would be many
who would say that consuming even one bottle in a lifetime would change one's
life forever. Wild Ginseng, no matter what variety, is considered to by a holy
herb, and has since ancient times has been an herb of mystics, holy men and
women and spiritual seekers. It is also a power herb, sought after by emperors,
warriors and those interested in the sexual and martial arts. Chinese Ginseng
is called Panax, which means panacea.
Here is a short
introduction to the various Ginsengs that grow wild in remote mountains in Asia
all of which are used to make Heaven Drops Wild Ginseng.
Chinese Changbai Mountain Wild Ginseng
Panax Ginseng (Northeast Asian Ginseng) is one of the most famous and
valued herbs used by mankind, Panax Ginseng is a Qi tonic that helps regulate
and maintain the human metabolic and respiratory systems. It has been shown to
be invigorating and regulatory to both the central nervous system and to the
endocrine system of otherwise normal, healthy individuals. It is the primary Qi
tonic of Chinese tonic herbalism.
Genuine, high grade
Ginseng helps a person to quickly and accurately adapt to routine, occasionally
stressful conditions. Ginseng enhances endurance and resilience under challenging
conditions. It has been shown to reduce the wear and tear on the body that
results from stress, and can reduce the negative effects of stress physically,
emotionally and mentally. It has thus been termed an "adaptogenic"
substance by scientific researchers. The benefits of Panax Ginseng as an immune
modulator have long been known, and recent scientific research is showing that
high quality Panax Ginseng has very powerful immunological functions in otherwise
normal, healthy humans.
Ginseng contains many
active ingredients, but the most important are the saponins called ginsenosides.
Ginsenosides specifically improve adaptability and are believed to help build
muscle and endurance. Therefore Ginseng is very popular with athletes. Ginseng
generally has a "warm" energy.
There are in fact several
varieties of Panax Ginseng
, all of which have distinct characteristics. Most high
quality ginseng is good for men and women alike. The higher the quality, the
more Shen (Spirit) a ginseng root is said to contain. Wild Ginseng, such as
that contained in Heaven Drops Wild
Ginseng, is generally far superior to the cultivated, commercial varieties.
Wild Ginseng: Wild Ginseng is considered
the ultimate Ginseng. Wild Ginseng, if it survives for more than 12 to 15 years,
becomes almost invincible. Roots have been known to live more than two hundred
years in the harsh climate of Manchuria. The
older the root, the more potent it will be from a human health perspective. The
more hardship a root has had to endure, the more ginsenosides and other constituents it will produce. The Chinese
Wild Ginseng roots used in Heaven Drops Wild Ginseng are all 15 years
old or older. Roots that are over 30 years old are considered to be very old
and fall into a category all of their own. Roots that are 45 years old to 65
years old are incredibly rare --- however, just such long-lived roots are used
in the Heaven Drops Wild Ginseng.
Wild Changbai Mountain Ginseng is the Orient's premier
Shen tonic. Shen is human spiritual power. Wild Ginseng has been the herb most
sought by Daoist holy men and women (perhaps along with Reishi Mushroom), as
well as by emperors and the men and women of the old imperial courts and by
wealthy people throughout the world. It is believed to be a spiritually transformational
substance. It is usually too expensive for most people to ever obtain, so the
inclusion of a very significant quantity of these roots in this formula is a
first. It is not a "hot" Ginseng, and is generally considered to be
"neutral" in this regard. However, the potency of these roots is
Wild American Ginseng
American Ginseng (Panax Quinquefolium): American Ginseng is a major Yin tonic herb. Though it
grows wild in North America, it is a true
Ginseng. American Ginseng helps to moisten the tissues and is used especially
as a lung tonic. It has anti-aging qualities. Wild American Ginseng is revered
in the Far East. American Ginseng is widely
cultivated, but, except for the very highest grades of cultivated American
Ginseng grown in very harsh areas, the wild Ginseng is much superior. The best
wild American Ginseng grows in the Catskill Mountains of upper New York. The pristine
environment and harsh climate make it a perfect habitat for Ginseng. Catskill
Mountain Wild American Ginseng is very, very rare, and collection is under the
strict supervision of various governmental agencies. American Ginseng is a very
potent yin tonic herb. Wild American Ginseng is a perfect counterbalance to
yang herbs that one may be consuming or to a generally yang lifestyle that
requires some gentle balancing.
