Dragon Herbs Astragalus The root of Astragalus membranaceus, an herb that grows in northern China, has been used for over 2000 years to strengthen the body as a whole. Astragalus is believed by the Oriental people to strengthen muscle and improve metabolic functions. One of the most important herbs in the world, Astragalus has been recognized as a superb and potent immune system tonic by modern researchers.Astragalus is said to have another effect on the “surface” of the body --- that is, it is used to tonify the “Protective Qi,” known as Wei Qi in Chinese. This Protective Qi is a special kind of energy which circulates just under the skin and in the muscle. Protective Qi is a Yang energy.Protective Qi circulates in the subcutaneous tissues providing suppleness to the flesh and adaptive energy to the skin. This function is essential to life.An important effect of Astragalus is in its ability to fortify the “Upright Qi.” Upright Qi is the energy allocated by the body to maintain upright posture and to maintain the position of the organs in their healthy position in their battle with gravity. As one gets older, or if one experiences chronic fatigue or exhaustion, or during illness, this Upright Qi is easily depleted resulting in the sinking, or “prolapse,” of organs. Astragalus enhances the function of the skin to eliminate toxins. It is commonly used to help sores in the skin to come to a head and suppurate, and thus to heal more quickly and effectively. Astragalus has a mild diuretic action and helps to relieve excessive sweating. It is helpful in treating loose stools, chronic diarrhea and chronic or recurring colds. If a cold lasts too long it can cause a general fatigue syndrome that can itself become chronic. Astragalus is very useful for people who just can’t seem to shake a cold, and Astragalus can replace the Qi necessary to regain full strength.Studies conducted at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center at the University of Houston, the world’s largest cancer research institute, demonstrated clearly that Astragalus improves the immune response in humans undergoing radiation and chemotherapy as a treatment for cancer. Patients taking Astragalus during such treatment tend to have far fewer side effects and to recover at a higher and faster rate.An interesting new area of research on Astragalus concerns its potential as a male fertility agent. Astragalus has been proved to stimulate sperm motility. Traditional FunctionTonifies the “three burning spaces” (metabolic functions), increases Qi, overcomes weakness, tonifies the Lungs and Spleen, raises Yang, reduces perspiration, facilitates excretion of water and eliminate
Dragon Herbs 22 Reishis In China, certain woody mushrooms are held in extremely high esteem for their life-preserving, protective and generally tonic actions. Reishi Mushroom (known as Lingzhi in Chinese) is the King of Mushrooms, and is generally regarded in the highest possible regard. Interestingly, in Asia, herbalists are well aware that there are several varieties of Reishi, and all of them are used as tonic herbs to promote radiant health. Each variety has its own strengths and value. In the herbal world of China, there are over 20 mushrooms that are called "Reishi," the most important being Ganoderma lucidum. Some of the "reishis" are not actually in the Ganoderma genus, but are related or are otherwise extremely potent life-enforcing tonic herbs. All of them have been used for many centuries, so they are well established and well understood. However, some are very rare and some are much more available. 22 Reishis, a unique formulation created by Master Herbalist Ron Teeguarden, contains literally the 22 varieties of wild woody mushrooms that are sold in "Reishi specialty shops" in China as "Reishi." They come from all over Asia - from Manchuria, Mongolia, Heaven Mountain, the Tibet, Wuyi Mountain, etc. This is the first product that Dragon Herbs knows of, perhaps ever, that contains all 22 varieties of Reishi used in the Orient. Reishi Mushroom Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidium) is the most revered herbal substance in Asia, ranking as the elite substance for the attainment of radiant health, longevity and spiritual attainment. It ranks in Asia with Ginseng, Deer Antler, Rhodiola, and Cordyceps as a pre-eminent tool in the attainment of radiant health. It has maintained that position for at least 3000 years, and its reputation and value are only increasing. Numerous legends provide a rich and extensive record of Reishi in Asian society. Reishi has traditionally been used as an anti-aging herb, and has been used for many diseases and disorders as well. It has long been a favorite tonic food supplement by the Chinese Royal family and virtually any one who could obtain it. Reishi was particularly revered by the followers of the Taoist tradition as the "Elixir of Immortality." Taoists have continuously claimed that Reishi promotes calmness, centeredness, balance, inner awareness and inner strength. They have used it to improve meditative practices and to protect the body, mind and spirit so that the adept could attain both a long and healthy life and “spiritual immortality” (enlightenment). Due to its rarity in the past, the common people could rarely obtain a Reishi mushroom, and it was popularly revered as a greater treasure than any jewel. Traditionally, Reishi is said to be a nourishing tonic, tonic to the three treasures (Jing, Qi and Shen). It is considered to be capable of building body resistance, and to be powerfully detoxifying to the cells and tissues of the body. Reishi is slightly sed
Dragon Herbs Four Kings Four Kings is an immune-boosting tonic that tonifies all Three Treasures; Jing, Qi, and Shen. It is made from four mushrooms carefully selected for their immune boosting, strengthening properties. Four Kings can be taken by anyone, and is particularly useful for those needing immune support. The Herbs in Four Kings Agaricus Mushroom Agaricus mushroom is not a traditional Asian herb. It is a Brazilian rainforest herb that has won huge acceptance in Asia and is now commonly incorporated into Chinese tonic herbal formulations in China and Japan. It is among the premier immune system tonics of all known natural substances. It is the richest source in the world of a type of polysaccharide known as beta-glucans, which has been solidly established to be among nature’s most potent immune potentiating substances. Agaricus has double-direction activity on the immune system. In other words, it may be used to bolster a deficient immune system, as occurs in cases involving infections, or Agaricus may be used to moderate an excessive system, as occurs in cases of autoimmune disease and allergies. Agaricus may be used by anyone. In Japan, Agaricus is considered a “cure-all” herb. Cordyceps Mushroom Cordyceps is one of the absolute superstars of the Chinese tonic herbal system. It is an extremely effective and powerful life-enhancing agent, ranking right up there with Ginseng, Reishi and Deer Antler. Because it is rare, potent and highly treasured, like Deer Antler, it is very expensive. This rare and precious herb is considered to be a moderately Yang primal essence (Jing) tonic of the highest stature. It is a mushroom that consumes the body of a particular kind of caterpillar in mountainous regions of China, Mongolia and Tibet. It has enormous renown as a supersonic, and is said to build sexual and physical power, mental energy, the immune system and is universally believed in the Orient to prolong life.Cordyceps is used to strengthen the body and mind at a fundamental level. It is said to be able to increase the “primary motive force for life activities.” Because it contains both Yin and Yang it can be used by anyone safely and over a long period of time. It replenishes Yin Jing, restoring the deep energy expended as a result of excessive exertion, adapting to stress or from aging. Cordyceps is thus one of the primary herbal substances used in tonic herbalism as an anti-aging agent and for the purposes of rejuvenation. Cordyceps is very widely used for the purposes of strengthening the primal Kidney functions, which include sexual functions, brain power, structural integrity and healing ability. It is a very powerful Yang tonic. As a sexual tonic, Cordyceps is considered to be one of the best. It is not as quick acting as the best of the Yang tonics like Deer Antler, Epimedium and Sea Dragon, but it has a profound long range strengthening capacity. It is commonly u

It has been used by the Tibetan people as a powerful adaptogenic vitalizer and as a substantial medicinal agent since the beginning of Tibetan civilization.Rhodiola sacrahas also been prized by the Chinese and was very positively reviewed in the very first Chinese herbal classic over two thousand years ago. It was regarded by the author of that classic text, Shen Nong, as a life-prolonging, wisdom enhancing “superior herb.” However, the rarity ofRhodiola sacrahas long prevented it from becoming a well-known commodity outside ofAsia. Benefits of TibetanRhodiola Sacra According to Tibetans, TibetanRhodiola sacramay be used as a tonic, in which case it strongly increases vitality. It is good for strengthening the body and mind, resisting fatigue, resisting a lack of oxygen and excessive radiation (including solar radiation), and for prolonging life.

Dragon Herbs Super Pill No. 1 Ron Teeguarden's Super Pill is a special kind of formulation. It is composed entirely of super tonics, the elite tonic herbs in the world. Each of the herbs in this remarkable formulation are "King Herbs," herbs that typically are the lead herb in major formulations. They all have huge reputations for promoting radiant health, longevity and wisdom. It is possible to purchase each of these herbs individually, but by purchasing and consuming this one product, you are assuring yourself of consuming four of the most special health promoting herbs ever known to mankind. The Herbs in Ron Teeguarden's Super Pill Gynostemma Leaf Gynostemma is popularly believed in Asia to be an anti-aging, longevity herb. Gynostemma is generally reinforcing to overall health, has a strong anti-fatigue effect. It is also used throughout the Orient as a virtual "cure-all." Gynostemma is a major adaptogenic herb, in the same league as Panax Ginseng, Siberian Ginseng, Reishi, Schizandra and Astragalus.In China, Gynostemma is widely believed to reduce oxygen deficiency at high altitudes, to improve digestion, to strengthen the mind, and to improve sex functions. It is also believed to help calm the nerves and to ease pain. The ultimate greatness of Gynostemma lies in its broad spectrum adaptogenic quality. It has double-direction activity in many areas. It has the ability to bring balance to the body under a wide range of stressful circumstances. Constant consumption of Gynostemma tends to have a highly protective quality because it strengthens the adaptive capacity of the person at every level of their life. The chemical constituents responsible for the adaptogenic characteristic of Gynostemma are saponins called gypenosides.Gynostemma contains more than eighty different gypenosides. This is the broadest range of saponins in one plant in nature. Ginseng, for example has about thirty-six saponins (ginsenosides) and Astragalus has about thirty-two saponins (astragalosides). These gypenosides are very similar to that of Ginseng and to the eleutherosides of Siberian Ginseng. In fact, four of Gynostemma’s saponins are precisely the same chemical structure as the saponins found in Ginseng and eleven more are almost identical. The similarities are so close and so extensive that Gynostemma is now called “Southern Ginseng.” To the local people who grow it and consume it, it is simply called “Magical Grass.”Studies indicate that Gynostemma has a double-direction, regulating, and adaptogenic influence of the central nervous system. It is calming when one is overexcited and stimulating when one is depressed. Japanese studies have shown that Gynostemma is clinically useful in a number of mental and neurological conditions, including simple depression, anxiety and schizophrenia.Though Gynostemma is regarded as a tonic herb, it is already perc
Dragon Herbs Deer Antler Velvet Extract Deer Antler is considered to be one of the "big three" ultimate herbs of China - Ginseng, Reishi Mushroom and Deer Antler. All three are tonic herbs that have been used since pre-historic times to prolong life, improve energy, to protect the body and to promote wisdom. Deer Antler is a Yang Jing herb, but it also tonifies Yin Jing, Qi, Blood and Shen. The deer are NOT killed to harvest their antlers. They are humanely collected in the early summer from male deer.

Adaptability Enhancement We human beings are intimately interconnected with our environment. Any change in the environment influences us both physically and psychically. How we handle such changes, how we adapt to the changes in our environment and to the stresses of life, will be the determining factor in our health and well-being. Conversely, as we change, the environment around us will be influenced and will reflect our changes. The greatness of Oriental natural philosophy lies, to a great degree, in its subtlety and breadth of vision with regard to the connection between the human being and their environment. The tonic herbalist recognizes such environmental influences as the change of seasons, wind, heat, cold, dryness, moisture, and so on, as fundamental causative factors in one's health as well as one's disease. Adaptability requires energy. The greater the stresses of life and the more dynamic the changes in one's life, the greater the requirement for adaptive energy. The very purpose of using Chinese tonic herbs is to aid the body-mind in its adaptive needs. The greatness of the Chinese tonic herbs lies in their adaptogenic quality; that is, their ability to enhance the body-mind's capacity to adapt optimally, accurately and with endurance, to changes in the environment, and thus to overcome the stresses of life. By replenishing the energy of the cells, tissues and systems that regulate our adaptability, we find ourselves capable of experiencing life at its fullest. We find ourselves with increased physical, mental and emotional endurance. We find ourselves easily handling stresses that would exhaust others. We find ourselves to be resilient on every level. This adaptability allows us to lead a rich, broad, adventurous life. When the body is working very well, it automatically adapts accurately. This is part of the miracu
