Classic Chinese Energizing Compound
There are numerous energizers available in health food stores, but too
many are herbal stimulants, offering a quick uplift with a long-term
downside. These substances stimulate the adrenal response, often with
negative effects, such as nervousness, increased stress, and eventual
exhaustion. Stimulants mobilize energy, but add nothing of value to our
bodies; on the contrary, they can rapidly lead to depletion of vitality.
Planetary Herbals Ginseng Revitalizer™ is based on a
classic formula that has been in continued use since 1078 A.D. This
dynamic combination is designed to support energy levels without the use
of stimulants - for long-lasting vitality and well-being.
Ginseng: Botanical Adaptogen
is a legendary tonifier first written about in the Sui Dynasty of China
(580 - 601 A.D.). Besides being one of the most highly regarded energy
tonics of Chinese herbalism, ginseng is classified as an adaptogen,
which helps the body adapt to a variety of physical and psychological
The popular use of ginseng in the United States
began because of its great reputation in Asia. However, ginseng is very
seldom used by itself in Chinese health practices. In traditional
Chinese herbalism it is combined with herbs considered to assist and
augment its tonifying actions.
Ginseng Revitalizer: Superior to Ginseng Alone
Revitalizer has as its foundation a classic Chinese formula (Four Noble
Gentlemen, Si Junzi Tang), which has remained one of Chinaï¿½s most
valued tonic formulas for almost 1,000 years. This formula features
Asian ginseng, with the assistance of atractylodes to enhance digestion
and nutrition, and poria sclerotium, an immune-stimulating mushroom. The
sweetness of licorice root permeates the blend, so that the qualities
of the herbs are melded together, and licorice itself has adaptogenic
properties. To this classic Chinese formula, Planetary Herbals adds
tonics and adaptogens from other traditions, such as American Ginseng,
and the powerful adaptogen, the root of Siberian Eleutherococcus senticosus.
Tienchi ginseng is added to support circulation, while codonopsis and
astragalus are additional highly valued Chinese tonic herbs that augment
and expand the effects of ginseng, for increased vitality and
endurance. Ginger root adds a warming, spicy quality to the blend.
