strength comes from the Three Treasures. These are the fundamental energies of
life. All strength is rooted in Jing, the primal energy of life. When Jing is
abundant, the body has the root power it needs to work and play vigorously and
to live a long, successful life. Any formula or herbal program designed to
build “strength” must help build Jing. Jing is divided into Yin Jing and Yang
Jing. Yin Jing is the basic fuel of life. Yang Jing is the raw power of life.
Together, they generate strength. There are a number of very effective herbs
that tonify (rebuild and maintain) Jing in the human body. These are known as
Jing tonic herbs. When combined, they formidably build Jing within the body.
Strength Builder is designed to build and preserve Jing.
It supports the production and maintenance of Kidney Yin and Yang. It is a
potent formulation designed to provide herbal nutrients for athletes and other
highly active individuals. This formula may be used by those wishing to
increase athletic and/or sexual power, and by those interested in becoming
generally more vital. It is suitable for those who wish to maintain an active
lifestyle. Strength Builder can be
used to strengthen the skeletal and muscular systems and is particularly useful
as a tonic for those who use both their brains and their brawn to succeed.*
Strength Builder is a powerful Jing tonic. It
contains powerful Yang herbs (Morinda and Eucommia) and it is a very powerful
Yin tonic as well (He Shou Wu, Goji, Ligustrum and Cornus). When these herbs are
combined and consumed together, the body will accumulate and store Jing.
the energy in our body that is derived from eating (nutrition) and breathing.
It is our day to day energy – our vitality. Qi tonics strengthen our
assimilation and our respiration so that we can make Qi and use it in our body.
Qi tonics are valuable because they build immediate and lasting strength.
Strength Builder contains three excellent Qi tonics –
Astragalus, Dioscorea and Licorice. These Qi tonics have been consumed for
millennia for the purpose of enhancing strength, a fundamental characteristic
that plays a pivotal role in survival, success and flourishing. The Qi tonics
in Strength Builder have been chosen
because they support the production of Jing-based strength. They also
contribute to the assimilation of the rich Jing herbs contained in this
Strength Builder has one more important component. It
has a super-potent blood tonic section – Goji, Astragalus, He Shou Wu and White
Peony. When these four herbs are combined, the body will produce more fresh
blood, which enhances all the functions of the body and mind.
Herbs in Strength Builder
Morinda is an excellent Jing tonic. It is yang. Morinda root is an
empowering herb, whose name in ancient times was “Strength Builder.” It is
considered to be highly nutritious and is used in superior tonic formulas for
strengthening the body. It is widely used in primal Jing formulations, often as
the main ingredient. Morinda is widely believed in China to increase mental
power as well as physical strength. It is also considered to be beneficial to
the heart, supporting cardiovascular functions in healthy people. There are
many different grades of Morinda root available. Of course, premium grade
Morinda root contains more tonic chemistry and has a smoother, more powerful
effect. Dragon Herbs uses Grade A Morinda root to
produce Strength Builder.
He Shou Wu
Constant consumption of this famous "longevity herb," whose
full Latin name is Polygonum multiflorum,
is said in the Orient to help “return
an aging person to youthfulness and to keep a young person young.” It is an
unsurpassed Jing tonic, on the Yin side of the spectrum. It is also a major
blood tonic. It is used in China to increase energy and to clean the blood. As a
Jing tonic, it is believed to be a powerful sexual tonic when consumed
regularly, especially when combined with Yang herbs. He Shou Wu is widely
believed in China to increase sperm production in normal healthy men and to
increase fertility in normal healthy women. It is used in almost all tonics
that are believed in the Orient to nurture the hair and teeth. This herb has
been consumed by almost every Taoist that has ever lived, and is fundamental to
the practice of the Taoist inner arts because it fosters the strength to
perform Qi Gong and Gong Fu. He Shou Wu becomes stronger as it matures in the
ground. Young He Shou Wu roots that are commonly used in herbal commerce do not
have much Jing or Qi. As the roots mature, they absorb Jing and Qi from the
earth and store it. He Shou Wu is considered to be the strongest accumulator of
Qi in all of herbalism. But young roots have not had time to accumulate much
Qi. Dragon Herbs uses only mature He Shou Wu roots to make Strength Builder. The roots have grown for four to ten years before
collection. Also the roots are processed according to ancient tradition by
cooking in black bean soup, creating the world famous He Shou Wu tonic herb.
Eucommia is a superb Yang Jing tonic, used to strengthen the back
(especially the lower back), skeleton, and joints (especially the knees and
ankles). Eucommia is believed to confer strength and flexibility to the
ligaments and tendons. It is often used by martial artists, yoga practitioners,
Qi Gong practitioners, and other athletes to strengthen their bodies. Eucommia
is widely used in China as a safe and effective sex tonic for men and women. It
is a very strengthening tonic. Like the other herbs, there are many grades of
Eucommia. Eucommia bark is carefully and sustainably removed from Eucommia
trees. The older the tree, the stronger the herbal effects. Dragon Herbs uses
only old, Grade A Eucommia bark to make this product.
One of the most important herbs in the world, Astragalus has been
recognized as a superb and potent tonic by modern researchers. Astragalus has
been used for over 2000 years to strengthen the body as a whole. Astragalus is
believed by the Oriental people to strengthen muscles and improve metabolic
functions. This famous herb is widely grown. Its range of grades is staggering
– from almost useless garbage to sublimely powerful tonic herb. Most herbal
products sold in America use low grade Astragalus roots. Dragon Herbs uses
premium Astragalus roots from its ancient growing place, high in the mountains
and away from pollution. It is loaded with Astragalosides that provide its
herbal power. The strength of the Astragalus determines the potency of this or
any formula that contains it.
This famous herb/superfruit is very widely used as an excellent Jing and
blood tonic. Regular consumption of Goji 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 brighten the eyes and improve
vision. It is said that Goji strengthens the legs and enhances sexual function.
Goji fruit contains polysaccharides that have been demonstrated to strongly
fortify the immune system. Goji is also very rich in B vitamins.
Ligustrum is a Yin Jing tonic herb that is said by the Chinese to prolong
life. It has been found to contain significant immune enhancing agents. It is
also used as a blood tonic. It has a slightly cool energy. It confers strength
to those who consumer it on a consistent basis.
