Ron Teeguarden's Super Pill No. 1
Ron Teeguarden's Super Pill
is a special kind of formulation. It is composed entirely of super tonics, the
elite tonic herbs in the world. 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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.

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 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

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.

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

most common sources of raw materials on the American market.

stresses, the attacks, the challenges that come our way every day. Duanwood Reishi seems to provide

challenges. Duanwood Reishi

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.

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

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.

Ti, Mo, Mn, etc.).
Rhodiola sacra contains a complex
volatile oil. The oil gives this herb a unique aroma and flavor.

"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
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

different varieties of Himalayan Rhodiola.
