All of the herbs in this remarkable formulation are "King Herbs" – herbs that typically are the lead herb in major formulations. They all have huge reputations for promoting radiant health, longevity and wisdom. It is possible to purchase each of these herbs individually, but by purchasing and consuming this one product, you are assuring yourself of consuming four of the most special health promoting herbs ever known to mankind.


The Herbs in Ron Teeguarden's Super Pill


Gynostemma Leaf


Gynostemma is popularly believed in Asia to be a healthy aging promoting, longevity herb. Gynostemma is generally reinforcing to overall health. It has a strong anti-fatigue effect in normally healthy individuals experiencing temporary fatigue from work and exercise. Gynostemma is a major adaptogenic herb, in the same league as Panax Ginseng, Siberian Ginseng, Reishi, Schizandra and Astragalus.


In China, Gynostemma is widely believed to support healthy oxygen usage at high altitudes, to support healthy digestion, to help strengthen the mind, and to help improve sex functions in normally healthy people.  It is also believed to help calm the nerves. 


The ultimate greatness of Gynostemma lies in its broad spectrum adaptogenic quality. It has double-direction activity in many areas. It has the ability to bring balance to the body under a wide range of mild, occasional stressful circumstances. Constant consumption of Gynostemma tends to have a highly protective quality because it strengthens the adaptive capacity of the person at every level of their life. The chemical constituents responsible for the adaptogenic characteristic of Gynostemma are saponins called gypenosides.


Gynostemma contains more than eighty different gypenosides.  This is the broadest range of saponins in one plant in nature.  Ginseng, for example has about thirty-six saponins (ginsenosides) and Astragalus has about thirty-two saponins (astragalosides).  These gypenosides are very similar to that of Ginseng and to the eleutherosides of Siberian Ginseng.  In fact, four of Gynostemma’s saponins are precisely the same chemical structure as the saponins found in Ginseng and eleven more are almost identical.  The similarities are so close and so extensive that Gynostemma is now called “Southern Ginseng.”  To the local people who grow it and consume it, it is simply called “Magical Grass.”


Gynostemma has a double-direction, regulating, and adaptogenic influence of the central nervous system. It is calming when one is overexcited and stimulating when one is overly lethargic. 


Gynostemma does not cause any side effects and can be taken orally for a long time. 


The Gynostemma Extract used in Ron Teeguarden's Super Pill contains 60% gypenosides. This is much more potent than normal extracts, which typically contain approximately 10% gypenosides.


Goji Fruit


This delicious fruit is very widely used as an excellent Yin Jing and blood tonic. Regular consumption of Lycium is traditionally believed to lead to a long and happy life. It is said that prolonged consumption of Goji will promote cheerfulness and vitality. Goji is also said to help brighten the eyes and improve vision. It is said that Goji helps strengthen the legs and enhances normal sexual function. Goji is also very rich in a vitamin C precursor that converts to vitamin C in the blood stream, and in B vitamins. Furthermore, it is the richest source of carotenoids, including beta carotene, of all known plants on earth and is thus a powerful antioxidant.


Goji, the dried fruit of Lycium barbarum is one of the most commonly prescribed Yin-modulators used in Chinese herbalism. In Asia and wherever Chinese herbalism is practiced, this herb/superfood is used as a tonic. It replenishes the Yin component and blood elements, helps support healthy eyesight, and is a favorite ingredient in recipes for normally healthy aging people. This herb contains simple sugars, polysaccharides, betaine, zeaxanthin and physalein.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           



Goji berries contain an abundance of health-promoting constituents including: Lycium polysaccharides, 18 amino acids, 6 essential fatty acids, vitamins B1, B2, B6, E (not  commonly found in fruit), more beta carotene than carrots, as much vitamin C as contained in lemons or oranges, and more than twenty trace minerals including calcium, organic germanium, selenium, zinc, phosphorus, and iron.


High-grade, fresh Chinese Goji is extremely rich in beta-carotene (and it is estimated that it has the highest content of beta-carotene among all foods on earth).  Beta-carotene can be transformed into vitamin A under the influence of human liver enzymes. Therefore, vitamin A ultimately plays a major influence in Goji’s actions. Goji’s function on the eyes is related to this factor. Goji’s vitamin B1 and B2 contents are significant and the vitamin C content of freeze-dried Lycium has been measured to be 73 mg/100 grams. Goji berries appear to help support our health in many ways. They possess powerful immune-supporting phytochemicals. Goji berry and its extracts have been shown to neutralize free radicals and to protect DNA. Evidence indicates that goji berries are likely to protect our nervous system (including our brain) and our sexual organs from damage due to stress, temperature variations and free radicals.


Traditional wisdom suggests that consuming Goji berries regularly can help support cardiovascular health, help to protect the pancreas and liver, support healthy immunity, support eye health, support healthy libido and fertility in healthy individuals, and improve mood.


The fruit also contains beta-sitosterol, linoleic acid (a fatty acid), sesquiterpenoids (cyperone, solavetivone), tetraterpenoids (zeaxanthin, physalin), and betaine.


Reishi Mushroom


Reishi mushroom is arguably the most revered herbal substance in Asia, certainly ranking with ginseng as the elite substance for the attainment of radiant health, longevity and spiritual attainment. It has maintained that position for at least 2000 years, and its reputation and value are only increasing. Since Reishi has been known to have many functions, it has been the subject of a great deal of research in recent years. It is absolutely safe, being non-toxic.


Reishi has traditionally been used to help promote healthy aging. Taoists have claimed for centuries that Reishi promotes calmness, centeredness, balance, inner awareness and inner strength. They have used it to improve meditative practices and to protect the body, mind and spirit so that the adept could attain both a long and healthy life and spiritual immortality. 


Reishi is now used as a general tonic to help promote healthy energy levels, to help improve digestion and to help improve sleep in healthy individuals.


Reishi is a profound immune potentiator. It is used to support the functioning of the immune system whether the immune system. It is an immune "modulator – that is, it helps to modulate, or regulate and fine tune the immune system. Our immune system is a virtually miraculous network of activities designed over millions of years to protect us. A healthy immune system is capable of resisting most intruders and a very hardy system may be able to resist invasions that many other people's systems cannot.


Chemical constituents known as polysaccharides play an important role in strengthening the body's overall immune functions. Reishi does not just "stimulate" the immune system. It regulates it. And that is what makes Reishi so precious. Ganoderic acids help improve oxygen utilization and support healthy liver functions. Ganoderic acids are also potent antioxidant free-radical scavengers. 


Reishi is widely used in Asia to help support the cardiovascular systems of normal, healthy individuals.



Reishi is a superb anti-stress herb, for minor, occasional stress. Throughout history it has been used to bring balance into the lives of people who needed help in this department, and that means most everyone. Deep in antiquity, it was routinely used by mountain hermits, monks, Daoist adepts and spiritual seekers throughout Asia because it was believed to help calm the mind, ease tension, strengthen the nerves, strengthen memory, sharpen concentration, improve focus, build will power and, as a result, help build wisdom. That is why it was called the "Mushroom of Spiritual Potency" by these seekers. The people of Asia have never lost their faith in Reishi. They believe more than ever in Reishi's power to improve the quality of life by improving the inner life of a human being. It is the profound ability of Reishi to improve one's life on every plane that makes it so miraculous. Reishi is indeed calming and centering. Everyone who takes Reishi notices the peacefulness that seems to accompany its use. And Reishi seems to be cumulative, gradually strengthening the nerves and actually changing how we perceive life. 


This product is made from 100% Duanwood Reishi, which is considered the most powerful Reishi in the world. It is extremely rich in all of the components that make Reishi great in the first place. Duanwood Reishi is far more powerful than common hothouse Reishi and Reishi mycelium, the most common sources of raw materials on the American market.


Duanwood Reishi is an herb that builds health on all levels. Life itself is based on the ability to adapt to the stresses, the attacks, the challenges that come our way every day. Duanwood Reishi seems to provide an incredible resource of the full range of energies we need to meet these challenges. Duanwood Reishi is indeed "the great protector," protecting us on every level – physically, immunologically, mentally, spiritually. It helps us adapt to the world and provides additional power for us to achieve a superior level of life. When we are so protected and so provided for, we can achieve things that otherwise would be impossible. That is why Duanwood Reishi has been called the "herb of good fortune." High quality Duanwood Reishi is among the rarest of jewels in nature.


Tibetan Rhodiola


Tibetan Rhodiola sacra is an exciting herb, only recently available outside of Tibet. It is a rare herbal substance because it grows in one of the harshest environments in the world. In the Orient, Rhodiola sacra is called “Plateau Ginseng,” and as the species name “sacra” indicates, the Tibetans consider Rhodiola sacra to be a sacred herb. It has been used by the Tibetan people as a powerful adaptogenic vitalizer since the beginning of Tibetan civilization. Rhodiola sacra has also been prized by the Chinese and was very positively reviewed in the very first Chinese herbal classic over two thousand years ago. It was regarded by the author of that classic text, Shennong, as a life-prolonging, wisdom enhancing “superior herb.” However, the rarity of Rhodiola sacra has prevented it from becoming a well-known commodity outside of Asia.


According to Tibetans, Tibetan Rhodiola sacra may be used as a tonic, in which case it strongly increases vitality. It is good for helping to strengthen the body and mind, helping in resisting temporary fatigue, supporting oxygen utilization and for prolonging life. It is especially well known for helping to increase the intelligence of those who consume it regularly. Rhodiola sacra has the action of “supporting and strengthening the human body” and the immune potentiating effects of Rhodiola sacra are considered potentially stronger than those Ginseng (a VERY potent immune potentiator). Rhodiola sacra has a notable restorative effect if one consumes a preparation while the tired body is from strong or excessive exertion. Tibetan Rhodiola sacra is now being distributed and consumed in China and Japan. According to the Chinese Ministry of Health, Rhodiola sacra has the following functions:


  1. It has the action of supporting and strengthening the human body and intelligence, and prolonging life.
  2. It has double-direction adjusting effects on the nervous and endocrine systems of normally healthy individuals.
  3. It is good for helping to resist temporary fatigue, and it can help improve a person’s memory, power of concentration and work-efficiency.


Consumption of a small amount of Tibetan Rhodiola sacra extract significantly improves a person’s capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen. This is a major key to the incredible benefits associated with this herb. When you consume Tibetan Rhodiola sacra, it is the same as inhaling pure oxygen.


Tibetan Rhodiola sacra is a superior tonic for those who work from behind a desk or at a computer terminal for long periods of time.  It is a powerful brain tonic and alertness enhancer. People who consume Rhodiola sacra find that they can work for much longer without losing their ability to concentrate and create. It is a superb herb for writers, executives, lawyers, etc.


Tibetan Rhodiola sacra is especially beneficial to those who live under stressful conditions Rhodiola sacra helps balance the body’s stress response, and thus helps protect against the physical side effects of temporary stress due to its powerful adaptogenic activity. People stay focused and suffer far less from fatigue even under short-term severe stress. Rhodiola sacra is the ideal herbal supplement for the modern world.


This incredible herb has long been used by the Tibetan monks to enhance their spiritual power, the power of concentration and physical endurance. It has undoubtedly played a major role in the development of Tibetan culture. It is a superb herb to take before meditation, since it improves respiration and clears the mind and promotes focused mental states. Tibetan Rhodiola sacra gained its name because it is considered a sacred herb in Tibet and Bhutan.


Tibetan Rhodiola sacra is in many ways more powerful than Ginseng, and, for that matter, every other adaptogenic herb in the world. It is a superb herb for people who work very hard physically. Rhodiola sacra has been shown to help improve physical endurance. It has been shown to be a superb tonic and energizer for those into physical fitness and for athletes, including extreme athletes.


Rhodiola sacra has been found to be extremely beneficial to the cardiovascular system.


Rhodiola sacra is a powerful immune modulator.


Rhodiola sacra has been found to be stimulating to the appetite and strengthening for temporarily weakened individuals. By providing increased oxygen and increased energy, Rhodiola sacra helps improve the ability to lose weight through exercise. Rhodiola sacra is the perfect herb for those who want to gain muscle and lose fat.


Rhodiola sacra is rich in the primary active ingredient, salidroside. However, it is important to know that this single active agent is not the sole active agent in Rhodiola sacra, and that Dragon Herbs’ Super Pill No. 1 is extracted so that the full range of phytochemicals are fully extracted. This is a full potency herbal extract.


Rhodiola sacra is a non-toxic herbal supplement. Safety studies, as well as 2000 years of experience, indicate that Rhodiola sacra is extremely safe, having no side effects in humans when taken even at high doses. Numerous studies have been presented to the Chinese Ministry of Public Health, which has reached the following evaluation: “Tibetan Rhodiola sacra has no poison, no sub-slow poison and does not cause any sudden change and deformity.”


Rhodiola sacra, and several other very closely related species of Rhodiola (especially Rhodiola crenulata, which may be used interchangeably with Rhodiola sacra) grows on the Himalayas at more than 14,700 feet above sea level, under extremely adverse conditions. The region in which Rhodiola sacra grows is extremely barren due to the extreme climatic conditions of the Tibetan alpines. This is considered to be one of the harshest environments on earth, with dry air, insufficient oxygen, strong ultraviolet radiation and a huge day-and-night temperature variance (often as much 60 degrees Centigrade or more). Rhodiola sacra, which belong in to the Crassulaceae family, is a sub-shrub plant with a succulent stem. Its adaptability to the harsh environmental circumstances and its vitality are seldom found in any other plants.


Rhodiola sacra’s root and stem are mainly used as a precious tonic. The major effective contents are salidroside, tyrosot, p-sitosterol, ethyl gallate, gallic acid, flavones and phenolic compounds. It contains 35 biologically active trace elements (e.g., Fe, Al, Zn, Ag, Co, Cd, Ti, Mo, Mn, etc.).


Rhodiola sacra contains a complex volatile oil. The oil gives this herb a unique aroma and flavor.


Tibetan Rhodiola also contains 18 amino acids which are needed by the human body, 7 of which are "essential" (cannot be produced by the body). Such a spectrum of bio-nutrients is seldom seen in any other natural plant.


Salidroside, tyrosot and sitosterol mainly enhance the resistance of the human body for adapting to stressful conditions and adjust physiological functions for restoration. It has double-direction adjusting effects on the nervous and endocrine systems of normal, healthy individuals, and possesses many kinds of physiologically active components


The people of Tibet knew over a thousand years ago that by decocting Rhodiola sacra with water or extracting it in alcohol, it could be drunk to help overcome temporary fatigue from heavy physical labor and to help increase the vitality necessary for completing extraordinary physical tasks. The benefits of Rhodiola sacra were recorded in the Jingzhu Materia Medica (the Tibetan Medicine Documents). According to that ancient Tibetan medical classic, Rhodiola sacra is nourishing to the lungs and respiratory functions and vitalizing. It was said by “Supernatural Peasant’s (Shennong’s) Materia Medica Classic” that “Rhodiola sacra will make the body light and relaxed, and will make the eyes bright.”


Rhodiola crenulata, a very close relative of Rhodiola sacra, is used interchangeably with Rhodiola sacra in both Tibet and China. They are pharmacologically very similar and are indistinguishable clinically. In Bhutan, they are regarded as the same herb, though their flower is a different color. They are merely considered different varieties of Himalayan Rhodiola.
