Codonopsis and Zizyphus Combination
a.k.a. Ginseng and Zizyphus Combination
Codonopsis and Zizyphus Combination has been used for many centuries to nourish Yin (Jing), and pacifies the spirit (Shen), support the Heart, and build Blood. Thus it tonifies all three Treasures. This formula is a Yin tonic that supports Shen, and supports the stability of Shen.
In this formula, Codonopsis and Zizyphus build Qi and support Blood. Dang Gui and Salvia support blood circulation. Asparagus root, Raw Rehmannia, Ophiopogon, Biota and Zizyphus Scrophularia nourish the Yin, moisten dryness and support a steady mood. Salvia and raw Rehmannia normalize blood.
This is the classical Ginseng and Zizyphus Combination used for many centuries in Asia. What distinguishes Dragon Herbs Ginseng and Zizyphus Combination from other brands is the quality of the herbs used to produce it and the production technology.
ALL HERBS in China (and from most places) come in different grades based upon their variety, seed stock, growing source, 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 factors these into account in selecting our raw materials and in producing our herbal products.
Codonopsis and Zizyphus 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. Many of the peasants of China take Codonopsis and Zizyphus Combination, so many factories produce it with very cheap materials so that it costs just pennies.
Dragon Herbs does not use low grade, less effective, raw materials for Codonopsis and Zizyphus 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.
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 Codonopsis and Zizyphus Combination can only be cooked for a few minutes. These “short cook” herbs are cooked separately and carefully and added at the end. For example, the Dang Gui should not be cooked as long as some of the other herbs because of its high aromatic oil content. Schizandra berries must be cooked for just for a few minutes because of its aromatic oil content. This is a true secret (revealed) of superior herbal production.
One very important process that most factories skip involves the collection of aromatic oils from the tea. Real Codonopsis and Zizyphus Combination has a sweet-spicy aroma. This is from the aromatic oils in the herbs. If the herbs are overcooked and the oils are allowed to evaporate, the true power of Codonopsis and Zizyphus Combination cannot be achieved – even if good quality herbs are used. Since we use superb herbs to make this formula, the result is sublime.
Dragon Herbs always processes its 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 essential oils are therefore not lost. They are added back into the extract at the end of the process. And this makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!*
