Codonopsis and Longan
a.k.a. Ginseng and Longan
Codonopsis and Longan Combination is the premier classical
Spleen-Heart tonic of Chinese tonic herbalism. This
formula tonifies two of the three Treasures: it
strengthens the Qi (both the Qi and the Blood components); and calms the Shen, allowing it to grow. It supports the heart function
by supporting good blood circulation.
the vital energy (Qi) and the Blood are enriched, the Heart and the Shen are calm and the circulation of the vital energy (Qi)
in the Spleen is appropriate and healthy.
Codonopsis, White Atractylodes, Astragalus,
Jujube, and Licorice are all major Spleen Qi tonics and facilitate the smooth
circulation of vital energy. They support the upright energy in the body
helping to keep the internal organs in place as well as strengthening the
body's immune function.
Zizyphus, Longan, Poria and
Polygala nurture the Heart and help to calm the Shen.
Polygala opens the internal path between the Kidney and
Heart. Polygala and Codonopsis both strengthen the
will. Dang Gui and Zizyphus tonify Heart Blood and thus have a tranquilizing effect on
Atractylodes, Dried Ginger and Poria
assist the digestive function. Dried ginger is warming to the interior and
improves nutrient absorption. Saussurea regulates the
vital energy and facilitates the circulation of Qi in the Spleen. Saussurea thus promotes the smooth flow of digestive

great Qi and Shen tonic formula has been used for
centuries to increase vital energy and calm worries.
This is the classical Ginseng and Longan
Combination used for many centuries in Asia. What distinguishes
Dragon Herbs’ Codonopsis and Longan Combination from other brands is the quality of the
herbs used to produce it and the production technology.
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.
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 Longan 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 Longan Combination, so
many factories produce it with very cheap materials so that it costs just
Herbs does not use low grade, less effective, raw materials for Codonopsis and Longan
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
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 Longan
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. This is a
true secret (revealed) of superior herbal production.
very important process that most factories skip involves the collection of aromatic oils from the tea. Real Codonopsis and Longan 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 Longan Combination
cannot be achieved – even if good quality herbs are used. Since we use
superb herbs to make this formula, the result is sublime.
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!*
