Longan is a great Qi tonic for building up your everyday energy. Consumed regularly, Longan boosts temporary energy as well as long term vitality, yet it is not a stimulant like caffeine. It gives you energy while simultaneously relaxing you.

Longan promotes tranquility. Longan has been found to promote deep, refreshing sleep.
