Career Athletes

Tonic herbs are a profound tool for meeting specific athletic and fitness needs.  Tonic, and especially adaptogenic, herbs have been used by amateur and professional sports champions around the world throughout history. The use of powerful tonic herbs has been documented to the time of the original martial artists over two thousand years ago and is essential for the training of the monks of the Shaolin Temple. Herbs are taken daily to build muscle, increase strength, sharpen focus and concentration, build will power and self-discipline, alleviate stress and minor discomforts, creating greater and greater endurance, coordination and, ultimately, limitless vitality and vigor. Career athletes and those who engage in specialized or seasonal physical activities may require specific and additional herbal products to meet specialized needs on an individual basis.

We prefer not to mention celebrity-athlete names, but let it be said that among the super athletes who have used (and are currently using) Dragon Herbs tonic herbs are multiple Olympic gold medalists, multiple tennis Grand Slam champions, multiple NFL, NBA and major league baseball players, hall of fame hockey players, professional volleyball players, world class runners, world class body builders, world champion bicyclists and more.

The goal of tonic herbalism is to build muscle, increase strength, sharpen concentration, build endurance, alleviate stress, relieve pain, and to build will power. The physical challenges experienced by athletic endeavors and exertions require adaptogenic herbs to help the body respond appropriately and efficiently to the requirements of the physical challenge – terrain, weather, environment, duration, season -  with as little demand upon the Jing, the adrenals and kidney system, as possible. The structural aspect of the body is built, maintained and restored through the function of the Kidney organ system, our Jing.

Power

If you’re a serious athlete, you need serious power. Power is different than strength or endurance or will. It is a combination of all of them and more. It is a force of nature that is furious, controlled and explosive. Whether you are hitting a forehand, driving to the finish line, or meeting your opponent literally head-on, you need powerto be victorious. The Asian tradition has focused on power. In fact, the most important book in Asian philosophical history is entitled “The Way and the Power” (by Laozi). Great herbal geniuses and omnipotent warriors and fighters discovered the “herbs of power” and have learned to put them to use. Here are a few.

  1. Kinetic Ginseng 30 cap
    $99.00
    Korean Ginseng is a primal herb of power. Both the variety and the processing matter. True Korean Red Ginseng has been coveted by kings and athletes for centuries for its power enhancing capacity. It has always been the primal martial arts herb, especially in northern Asia where it was most accessible.

Structural Integrity

  1. Strong Bones
    $27.00
    Strong Bones was used by martial artists to nourish the bones and to support the skeleton’s natural, constant healing. Athlete all need strong bones. This formulation specifically strengthens bone structure and research indicates the herbs in Strong Bones help in the constant “remodeling” of our bone tissue. It is a fundamental principle of the Chinese art of glowing health that “bones are controlled by the kidneys.” The “kidney” is defined in Chinese health care as the system of functions that control our adrenals, sexual functions, skeleton and related structural tissues, renal functions, our spine and one’s courage and ability to handle stress. The kidney is the primary storage vesicle in the body of a primal energy known in China as Jing. Jing determines the power of your life and your longevity potential. Strong Bones formula is a very powerful “kidney tonic” and “Jing tonic.” It strengthens many functions related to your kidneys and central to your life and longevity.

  2. Frame Builder
    $27.00
    Similar to Strong Bones, Frame Builder is designed to strengthen the bones, but also to strengthen the connective tissues. So it is often used by athletes to support their joints and bones. In the end, almost every serious athlete experiences structural issues - sometimes temporary, sometimes debilitating and sometimes disastrous. Obviously, some structural problems are career ending, leaving a once-formidable athlete hobbled for life. Athletes must focus some of the attention on developing strong bones, ligaments and tendons. These tissues are within the scope of tissues and organs we can largely control, and certainly can fortify. It is far better to nourish these all-important tissues on an ongoing basis than waiting until an injury or general failure occurs. Like Strong Bones, Frame Builder is a very potent formula “kidney tonic.” It strengthens all functions related to your kidneys and may be used a a primary Jing tonic to promote longevity.

Winning

The difference between exercise, fitness and a “sport” is that a sport is by definition competitive, which therefore calls for “winning.” Winning requires the full range of athletic attributes described here, plus a boost in mental focus, energy and coordination at exactly the right moments to assure winning. All else being equal, winners become better performers in crunch time. Typically this involves an explosion of will power, extreme focus, nerves of steel and a Zen state of mind (being in “the zone”).

We believe the following herbs help make “winners.”

Here is an ancient story (poem) that sounds counterintuitive at first, but is 100% true:

 

The Need to Win

 

When an archer is shooting for nothing

He has all his skill.

If he shoots for a brass buckle 

He is already nervous.

If he shoots for a prize of gold

He goes blind

Or sees two targets – 

He is out of his mind!

 

His skill has not changed. But the prize

Divides him. He cares.

He thinks more of winning 

Than of shooting – 

And the need to win

Drains him of power.

 

Chuang Tzu

The Way of Chuang Tzu

400 BCE

Translated by Thomas Merton

 

In other words, keep your focus on your performance, not on winning. Winning is only a side-effect of near-perfect performance. There is no question, will power is all-important. A steady mind, absolute focus, and the ability to draw from your inner power at the appropriate times are the characteristics of the Way of Mastery and the Way of Winning.

Luck

It may seem ridiculous to include luck in a listing of functions, but in Taoism luck is believed to play a role in everything that happens in life. Taoists believe it is possible to make your own luck, good or bad. It is obvious that “winners” have more good luck than bad luck. Is this just coincidence? No. Your state of mind influences your luck. If you feel unlucky, you will be unlucky. If you feel lucky, more often than not you will have some level of good luck. That said, a superior athlete will usually beat another athlete simply out of skill, will, focus, superior fitness and more adept application. So you can’t count on luck, unless all things are about equal and then you get a bit of luck. This happens.

A couple of tonic herbs have been associated with luck. They are not magical herbs, but they support mental awareness, deep stability, clarity and psychological power. These herbs are: 

All four of these “lucky herbs” are athletes powerhouses without this added element, so be wise and consume at least one of them, if not all of them daily.

Athletic Longevity

How long will you perform? Will you still be an athlete in your 40s or 60s? That of course depends upon how you take care of yourself, how you nurture your body, how well your body repairs itself, and upon your will to continue. From a big point of view, you don’t want to be a fine young athlete who loses it completely once you pass your athletic prime. In fact, if you want to extend your career you must in a sense age more slowly. Not many things can serve you better in this regard than tonic herbs.

Safety, legality and drug testing

Serious athletes who perform in sanctioned events are generally subject to random recurrent drug testing. This is good. It protects the athletes and is an ethical approach to maintaining integrity in sports nutrition. We at Dragon Herbs have been working with world class athletes for over forty-five years. Hundreds of serious athletes who have consumed Dragon Herbs products (or earlier renditions) have been tested literally thousands of times. This continues to this day. Only once in all these years has one athlete been called out because he had a “performance enhancing drug” in his body. It was in the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, and it was due to the presence of Ginseng metabolites in his urine. For that very short window of time, Ginseng was prohibited, (reportedly because it was gaining high profile due to use by many Asian athletes), a status that was reversed for Ginseng just one year later (sadly for our athlete). Other than that, tonic herbs and superfoods that we offer have not triggered even one other sanction in all these years. Our herbalists will be happy to do research on the current status of our herbs and their constituents for you and your sport to be certain that you are “safe.”
