Complete Supertonic Combination
is the original classical “dabuwan,” or “super pill.” Ten Complete Supertonic Combination,
known in Chinese as Shi quan da bu wan,
combines Four “Major Herbs” (Codonopsis, Atractylodes, Poria and
Licorice) and Four Things (Danggui, Prepared Rehmannia, White Peony and Ligusticum),
and adds two other supertonics (Astragalus and Cinnamon) to make the
“complete tonifying formula.” This ancient formula tonifies Qi,
Blood, Yin Jing, Yang Jing, improves blood
circulation, purifies the blood and calms Shen.
formula supports immune functions in healthy individuals. Astragalus,
Codonopsis, Poria and Licorice roots in particular are well known immune
modulators used by healthy individuals to help maintain optimal immune system
functions. Cinnamon bark supports normal metabolic functions and hastens blood
circulation. Danggui and Ligusticum support blood production and blood
circulation, and are thus heart healthy. Poria has a calming effect. Rehmannia
is a superb Kidney tonic. Rehmannia and Cinnamon together build Jing.
This is the classical Ten Complete Supertonic Combination used
for centuries in Asia. What distinguishes Dragon
Herbs Ten Complete Supertonic Combination from
other brands is the quality of the
herbs used to produce it, and the production
ALL HERBS in China (and from most places)
come in different grades based upon their variety, growing source, seed stock, growing
conditions, care of the cultivators or collectors, and processing at various stages
of the supply chain and during production.
That’s a lot to consider. But Dragon
Herbs does take all these factors into account in selecting our raw materials
and in producing our herbal products.
Supertonic Combination is so widely consumed in China that
many domestic herb factories produce it. Most of this production uses low grade
herbs for price reasons.
Dragon Herbs does not use low grade, less
effective, raw materials for Ten Complete
Supertonic Combination or any of its products. Dragon Herbs
identifies sources of the BEST raw material, the kind preferred in Shanghai or
Hong Kong by those who know herbs and want the best. We use this premium
material to produce this important formula. All herbs are NOT created equal,
and you cannot make gold from straw.
Production technology also matters. Most
factories just throw the herbs into a tank and cook the whole thing for a
couple of hours, then they make a powdered extract of
the tea using a lot of excipient (usually not natural). Dragon Herbs uses low
temperature extraction using very pure water and no chemicals. We add the herbs
carefully at incremental stages. Some of the herbs in Ten Complete Supertonic Combination can
only be cooked for a few minutes. These “short cook” herbs are cooked
separately and carefully and added at the end.
One very important process that most
factories skip involves the collection of aromatic
oils from the tea. Real Ten Complete
Supertonic Combination has an earthy sweet and spicy aroma.
This is largely due to the aromatic oils in the herbs. If the herbs are
overcooked and the oils allowed to evaporate, the true
power of Ten Complete Supertonic Combination cannot
be achieved – even if good quality herbs are used.
Dragon Herbs always processes it herbs using
an “oil trap.” An oil trap is a sophisticated device connected to
the extraction system. It captures evaporating aromatic oils and collects them
in crystallized form. These collected aromatic oils are therefore not lost.
They are added back into the extract at the end of the process. And this makes
ALL THE DIFFERENCE! The oils collected from Danggui and Ligusticum in
particular are essential to the efficacy of this great classical formula. If
they are not collected, the formula cannot function correctly. The vast
majority of herbal extraction facilities do not have oil traps.
When you smell Dragon Herbs Ten Complete
Supertonic Combination, and other Dragon Herbs powdered
extracts, you can always smell the aromatic oils. These oils are not present in
most other brands of powdered extract. It is something we pay extra for, but
you don’t. We know that for an herbal extract to work, it must be made
correctly and with the best technology available in the world.*
