DESCRIPTION

    Dragon Herbs - Goji & Schizandra Drops - 2 oz. (60mL)

    Dragon Herbs Goji & Schizandra Drops is the extraction of the very finest, freshly harvested wild Schizandra from Changbai Mountain in Manchuria, blended with an equal amount of premium organically grown Goji fruit from Heaven Mountain, the premier source of Goji in the world. This superb super-concentrated tincture will surprise you with its multi-textured flavor and wide range of benefits. This is a product that should be on everyone's home herb shelf or home elixir bar. This formulation is suitable for men and women, young or old.

    Dragon Herbs' complete line of Dragon Drops products are alcohol-and-water extracts of the highest quality tonic herbs in the world. These highly concentrated fluid extracts are sold in 2 ounce dropper bottles. Dragon Drops, which have all been developed by Ron Teeguarden, are extremely potent formulations utilizing herbs of unparalleled quality. Such extraordinary substances as Wild Manchurian ginseng (worth up to $5000 per oz.), Wild American ginseng ($240 per oz.), Deer Antler Tips, North and South Korean heaven-grade Ginseng, Wild Reishi, etc. are routinely used in these preparations. These are extracted with both water and alcohol to assure that all active substances are extracted from these rare and supremely potent herbs. No other herbal producer in the world utilizes these quality substances in such a broad-based line.

    The Herbs
     
    Goji Berry - Asia’s Original Superfood/Supertonic herb
    Americans and Europeans are discovering what has been known for 2,500 years in Asia – consuming Goji regularly helps you to feel, look and perform better on every level of life. Goji is not a placebo or fad herb. It has been used by billions of people over the period of thousands and years. Hundreds of scientific studies are confirming all its traditional uses and more. Goji is a life-supporting, health protective miracle if every Nature created one!
     
    Goji berries, a.k.a. Lycium Fruit or Wolfberries, from the plant Lycium barbarum, have been considered to be a “magical” longevity herb and superfood since the dawn of Asian civilization. To this day Goji is revered in Asia for its youth preserving, health protective, strengthening, and mood-supporting properties. And though it is a fruit, it is considered to be more than a common fruit – it is regarded as one of the elite tonic herbs in the world. It is one of the main herbs used in China’s amazing tonic herbal system, often used in combination with other major tonic herbs like Ginseng, Reishi, and Schizandra.
     


    High Quality Goji Tastes Great
    Northwestern Chinese Goji (Lycium barbarum) is a delectable dried fruit that can be extracted to be used as an herbal supplement. The best tasting Goji comes from Heaven Mountain in northwestern China (Central Asia – Heaven Mountain is about 12 thousand miles from Los Angeles – it’s as far away from the United States as one can go). Goji berries from Heaven Mountain are very sweet, have a rich delicious flavor and are tender (not tough like lower grade Goji). These qualities have made Heaven Mountain Goji a favorite superfood in Asia.
     
    In China, this high quality Goji from China’s northwestern territory is called a “delicious herb,” suitable for use in cuisine (raw or cooked) and for straight snacking. Low quality Goji may not be delicious at all. That is why people are so attracted to the flavor of Dragon Herbs Goji and Schizandra Drops. Both the Goji and the Schizandra have remarkable flavors. Most of the Goji used to manufacture products for the American market are not of this “delicious” variety. It is important to know that the taste of Goji is in fact related to its benefits and quality from a tonic perspective. The most powerful Goji from a tonic perspective just happens to be the best tasting. Lucky for us! The best Goji comes from Heaven Mountain in the remote northwest of China.
      
    Action: To benefit the liver and the kidney, to replenish vital essence and to support eyesight.
     
    What Makes Goji Berries So Special
    The Goji berry is unquestionably one of the supreme tonic herbs in the world. In Asia and wherever Chinese herbalism is practiced, this herb is used as a tonic, and is widely used specifically to tonify vital essence, known to those “in the know” as Jing. It replenishes the Yin component. In traditional Chinese medicine, it has been documented extensively as a favorite ingredient in recipes for elderly people as an anti-aging herb. However, it is also a favorite of young people.

    Various human studies have shown Goji supports the serum levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and hemoglobin. Evidence supports the traditional notion that consuming Goji berries regularly can help support cardiovascular health, support the functions of the pancreas and liver, support immune functions, support eye health, support mood, and help increase and sustain libido.
     
    The fruit also contains beta-sitosterol, linoleic acid (a fatty acid), sesquiterpenoids (cyperone, solavetivone), tetraterpenoids (zeaxanthin, physalin) and betaine.
     
    “Happy Fruit”
    Goji is known as “Happy Fruit” in China. It is said that people who eat it regularly ”become happy, and find themselves laughing all the time.” A research study conducted in England has shown that consumption of Goji berries for several months significantly enhanced people’s moods.
     
    Super-Antioxidant
    It is important to our health to maintain proper levels of free radicals in our body. We need antioxidants to support that balance. Excessive free radical production results in destruction of cellular integrity. The daily challenges of modern life, including pollution, poor diet, and eating habits, overexposure to the sun’s rays, smoking (or being exposed to second hand smoke), and exposure to radiation all contribute to oxidation. Of course, it is best to avoid these toxic conditions – but that is only partially possible.
     
    It is essential that we consciously and consistently include antioxidants in our food – and that means every day. And since it is often impossible to consume enough antioxidants via our diet, the modern lifestyle actually requires that we supplement our diets with rich, concentrated sources of antioxidants.
     
    A diet rich in a wide variety of antioxidants is best for our health. Unfortunately, it is estimated that only one in four Americans is consuming the recommended twelve servings of fruits and vegetables a day recognized as the level of intake for maintaining good health. And even if one were consuming an ample supply of fruits and vegetables, it has been proven that certain antioxidants are more powerful health agents than others – and the most potent antioxidants are not necessarily found in the common foods eaten in America. The polyphenols in green tea provide a perfect example, as do the carotenoids and polysaccharides in Goji.
     
    All Antioxidants Are Not Created Equal
    It has become clear to most health experts, and to many knowledgeable consumers, that antioxidant molecules have widely ranging functions and actions in the body. Because the body is served best by consuming a wide range of antioxidants, it is best to supplement our diet with some potent antioxidant herbs and superfoods in order to protect our bodies, to support our vitality, and to support us on the road to healthy longevity. The incredible efficiency of the antioxidants in Goji berries, as is being demonstrated in research around the world, make Goji berries a perfect addition to our daily diet and make concentrated Goji extracts a perfect tonic herbal supplement.
     
    How Goji Works as an Antioxidant
    It has been proven that cooking does not destroy the antioxidant activity of Goji. Both water and alcohol extracts have extraordinary antioxidant activity.
     
    Goji’s function on the eyes is related to its content of a vital carotenoid called zeaxanthin dipalmitate. Zeaxanthin is a potent antioxidant essential for vision and probably for other human functions. It is a predominant carotenoid found in Goji berries.
     
    Goji is an good source of vitamin C (ascorbic acid). The human body needs lots of vitamin C, and it must be replenished daily. Goji berries contain a unique vitamin C precursor, known as ascorbic acid 2-beta-G. This precursor is stable in the digestive tract. When provided to test animals by oral administration, it increased their blood ascorbic acid and it was also detected in blood from the portal vein. Thus it appears to be easily assimilated by the body and highly bioavailable.
     
    Goji fruit is also good provider of riboflavin, vitamin B1 (thiamine), and nicotinic acid.
     
    Goji berries contain an abundance of health-promoting constituents including: 5 Lycium polysaccharides (LBP), 18 amino acids, 6 essential fatty acids, vitamins B1, B2, B6, E (not  commonly found in fruit), and more than 20 trace minerals including calcium, germanium, selenium, zinc, phosphorus, and iron.
     
    Goji Supports Our “Youth Enzyme” Antioxidant System
    Our bodies produce extremely powerful “innate” enzyme antioxidants, one of which is SOD (superoxide dismutase). SOD is one of three primary enzyme antioxidants produced in the human body designed during evolution to protect the body against natural free radical damage. SOD has been dubbed the “youth enzyme.” SOD protects our cells (including the cells of the brain, heart, kidneys, liver, and other organs) from the ravages of internally-generated toxins, as well as from toxins and other stressors introduced from the outside environment.
     
    An herbal dietary supplement that can stimulate the body’s production of SOD is fabulous for our health, and is undoubtedly of great importance as a person ages. What could be better than stimulating our own native antioxidant system? This appears to be exactly what happens when we consume Goji. Oral consumption of Goji fruit has been shown to raise and support SOD in the blood stream and in various tissues. Genuine Goji can increase SOD production in the body by as much as an astounding 40%, thus supporting healthy antioxidant function!
     
    It appears that this stimulatory ability of Goji on SOD production is the result of the actions of the unique constituents in Goji called Lycium polysaccharides (LBP).
     
    Goji has emerged as one of the elite superstars in the antioxidant arsenal – not a surprise to the Chinese or to tonic herbalists.
     
    Anti-fatigue Effect
    The purified LBP component was extracted from Northern Chinese Goji berries. According to the report, the LBPs induced “a remarkable adaptability to exercise load, enhanced resistance and accelerated elimination of fatigue.”  LBP could enhance the storage of muscle and liver glycogen. LBP helps maintain healthy blood urea nitrogen after strenuous exercise, and supports the natural clearance of blood urea nitrogen after exercise. It therefore may support better recovery after exercise.
     
    Beauty Herb
    In China, Goji is considered to be a “beauty herb.” It is universally believed in the Far East that Goji berries help prevent drying and wrinkling of the skin. Goji is rich in phospholipids, the main lipid component of all cell membranes. Women are particularly fond of the influence Goji has on their skin. In Asia, millions of people consume Goji from the Heaven Mountains daily to retain their youthful appearance, energy, and youthful sex life.
     

     
    Schizandra - The Quintessence of Tonic Herbs
    Schizandra fruit, from the plant Schisandra chinensis, is “the herb that does it all.” It develops and protects the primary energies of life. Schizandra, known as the "quintessence of Chinese tonic herbs,” supports vitality and beauty when used regularly for some time. It is said to promote beautiful skin. Schizandra is said to help purify the blood, support the mind, help maintain a strong memory, and help maintain sexual energy and sexual functions in both men and women.
     
    The Quintessential Full Spectrum Tonic Herb
    The very name of Schizandra in Chinese, Wu Wei Zi, tells us a great deal about the qualities of this herb. Wu Wei Zi means “Five Flavors Fruit.” Due to the fact that Schizandra possesses all five of the classical “tastes” (sour, bitter, sweet, spicy and salty) and thus possesses the essence of all five of the elemental energies (wood, fire, earth, metal and water), Schizandra is respected as a health-providing tonic in the same class with Ginseng, Reishi, and Goji. 
                          
    Schizandra has been used since the dawn of Chinese civilization as a tonic herb. From the beginning it has been revered, and remains one of the elite herbs of the Chinese system of herbalism. It was first written about in Shen Nong’s Pharmacopoeia (written between 1st and 2nd century A.D.) where it was listed as a Superior herb.
     
    The Taoists especially have revered Schizandra. Schizandra was Ron Teeguarden’s teacher’s, Taoist Grandmaster Sung Jin Park’s, favorite herb. This is because Schizandra tonifies all 3 treasures, enters all 12 meridians and nurtures all 5 elements. Master Park considered it to be the quintessential herbal substance.
                          
    Though Schizandra is believed to benefit all the functions of the body, it has traditionally been considered to have the most influence on the Kidney, Lung, and Liver functions.
     
    Schizandra chinensis (Wu Wei Zi)

    • Tonifies all 3 treasures.
    • Enters all 12 meridians
    • Nurtures all 5 elements.

    The 3 Treasures are the 3 fundamental energies that make up life, the meridians are the energy channels that flow throughout the body, the 5 elements are the five energy states of nature (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal). In short, Schizandra is a rare herb that can actually benefit all the bodily functions and organs of the body, according to the traditional Chinese and Taoist health system.
     
    A Famous Beauty Herb
    Schizandra supports the skin and its functions. Schizandra is widely used to beautify the skin and to protect the skin from the damaging effects wind. Due to the astringent quality of Schizandra, the skin tends to hold its moisture and becomes full and beautiful. It has always been very popular with the wealthy men and women of China, especially the women of the imperial court, because of its youth preserving and rejuvenating effects. It is said that those who use Schizandra consistently will remain youthful in both appearance and physiology. I have seen the benefits of this herb with my own eyes hundreds of times in my life. People who start taking Schizandra regularly all change for the better.  Their skin virtually glows and becomes clear and fine after several months.
     
    An Excellent Mind Tonic - With Double-Directional Regulation On The Central Nervous System
    This herb is considered to be one of the premium mind tonics of herbalism. It is used to support concentration, memory and alertness. Yet, unlike caffeine-like stimulants, Schizandra does not produce nervousness. In fact, some people consider Schizandra mildly “calming” while producing wakefulness and focus.
     
    The ability of the dried fruit to support mental and physical activity in humans has been reported. It has been demonstrated that human intellectual activity can be supported and work efficiency increased by consuming Schizandra. Various tests have shown that moderate doses of Schizandra can support various activities requiring concentration, fine coordination, sensitivity and endurance. The tests in humans confirming Schizandra’s efficacy in these areas range from threading needles to running marathons.
     
    Schizandra has been demonstrated in laboratory animals and in humans to have a stimulant action on the central nervous system.  The herb works directly on the nervous tissue. Conversely and paradoxically, Schizandra is also mildly sedative (“Shen stabilizing”). Schizandra does not make people sleepy. Many studies now indicate that Schizandra actually has a balancing, or regulating, action on the central nervous system.  It can result in accurate and optimal balancing between the excitatory and inhibitory control functions of the cerebral cortex.
     
    Goji and Schizandra Drops is an alcohol and water extract of Schizandra fruit and Goji berries (a yin Jing building herb).
     
    Schizandra and Liver Health:
    Detoxifying, healing, regenerative, and protective. 
     
    Schizandra stands along with Reishi as the primary liver cleansing agents used in tonic programs. Schizandra does not have the side effects that are associated with many of the “inferior” liver cleansing herbs. Schizandra, especially alcohol extracts, are widely believed to protect the liver from damage due to the kinds of toxins humans consume or absorb on a daily basis, the byproducts of living. Again, Goji and Schizandra Drops is an alcohol and water extract of Schizandra fruit and Goji berries.
     
    Phase I and Phase II of Detoxification
    Schizandra has been shown to strengthen and protect the liver. It does this by detoxifying and rejuvenating this critical organ. There are two critical stages to the process of normal liver detoxification, known as Phase I and Phase II. In Phase I, a detoxifying agent goes into the liver and binds with toxins, releasing them from the liver and taking them into the bloodstream. Almost always, this newly bound toxic bundle is more toxic than the original toxin. This increased toxicity is known as bioactivation. Old toxins in their new bioactivated form re-exposures the body to these old toxins, and they will end up back in the liver again, or stored in other tissues.
     
    Is Your Detox Program Making You More Toxic?
    During phase II of detoxification, the bioactivated toxins, which may be highly active, are safely cleared out of the body. This, of course, is the part we all want to happen in quick and efficient order. If the phase II process is weak, faulty or absent, all we’ve done is re-poison ourselves.
     
    Many substances can go into the liver and release old toxins into the bloodstream, but that is all they do, and as a result the person goes through an increased toxic period. The so-called cleansing crisis experienced by many people who go through various types of cleanses, is largely the result of bioactivated toxins wreaking havoc in the body. It is therefore very important that agents which boost Phase I activity also have significant effects on enhancing the Phase II clearance of the reactive intermediate.
     
    Schizandra appears to be very effective in boosting both Phase I detoxification and Phase II clearance of activated toxins.
     
    A Sex Tonic for Both Men and Women
    Schizandra is said to increase the “Water Qi in the Kidney.” In particular, it is said to support the “water of the genital organs,” referring to the sexual fluids. Schizandra is said to support the production of semen. It is famous for its ability to relieve sexual fatigue and for increasing the sexual staying-power in men. It is thus an ingredient in the vast majority of men’s sexual tonics in Asian herbalism.
                          
    Women benefit from the same capacity to increase Water Qi of the Kidney. Schizandra is said to increase circulation and sensitivity in the female genitals. Many women claim increased genital warmth and sensation after using Schizandra for a period of time. The Chinese sexual classics claim that continuous use by a woman will increase the amount of “female elixir,” a euphemism for vaginal secretions, during intercourse.
     
    Vision Benefits
    Human studies have also shown that Schizandra can support vision, even enlarging the field of vision, and can support hearing. It also supports the discrimination ability of the skin receptors. It has been determined that this sensitivity-support is due to enhanced function of the central nervous system’s ability to analyze data flowing to it from the peripheral sensors.
     
    Traditional Function: Tonifies all three treasures.
     
    Concentration: 8:1

    Remember Ron Teeguarden’s “First Rule of Tonic Herbalism,” summed up in a single word – Compliance. "If you don’t take the herbs, they won’t work.”

    The System

    The 3 Levels of Healthcare
    Traditionally in the Orient, there were three levels of healthcare.

    The first level is palliative medical care. It emphasizes the use of various medical approaches to treat ailments after they have occurred. Herbs used for this approach are called inferior herbs.

    The next level is prevention of specific disorders. The herbs used for this approach are called general herbs.

    The highest level of health care stresses the promotion of positive health as the primary goal. When sufficiently nurtured, our body is fully capable of regulating its own multitude of independent yet united functions, the way nature intended. Science has not been able to, and will never be able to, match that power of Nature. The herbs used for this approach have traditionally been called the superior herbs, but today they are called the tonic herbs. The utilization of the tonic herbs in order to achieve radiant health is called Tonic Herbalism.

    These three levels were first described in the original classic of Chinese herbalism, attributed to the legendary emperor Shennong approximately twenty-five hundred years ago. The following excerpt from Shennong’s Pharmacopeia of the Divine Farmer describes the highest level of herbs, the Superior Class (Tonic Herbs).

    "The Superior Class of herbs consists of 120 herbs. They are the rulers. They control the maintenance of life and correspond to heaven. These herbs are not medicines so the taking of these herbs in larger amounts or over a long period of time is not harmful. If one wishes to take the material weight from the body, to supplement the energies and nutrients circulating in the body, and to prolong the years of life without aging, a person should base their efforts on the herbs of the Superior Class."

    Dragon Herbs practices Tonic Herbalism, which is based on a 5000 year old system of health promotion, protection, and psychological transformation.

    The tonic herbs are defined as “herbs that promote a long, healthy, vibrant, happy life, without side effects, even when taken over a long period of time.”  Essentially, the tonic herbs are wonderful, healthful “super-foods” which benefit our well being in ways that more common foods cannot. They have a protective, balancing, vitalizing quality beyond that of any other herbs. They are generally consumed as a supplement to a well balanced healthy diet for the purpose of completing our nutritional needs and enhancing our nutritional profile.

    These Superior Herbs are not considered to be "medicinal" in the usual sense of the word. They are not used to treat or even prevent specific diseases or disorders. The tonics are used to promote over-all well being, to enhance the body's energy, and to regulate the bodily and psychic functioning, to protect the body and mind so as to create what the Chinese call "radiant health."

    Radiant Health
    Radiant health is defined in China as "health beyond danger." Radiant health is dependent upon one's ability to adapt appropriately and effectively to all the stresses that one encounters in the course of one's life. Tonic herbs are said to provide “adaptive energy” which helps us handle stress much more easily.  It is possible to develop a very high degree of adaptability to the many challenges we face and the changes that constantly take place in our lives. By overcoming stressful circumstances successfully, we grow as human beings and we enjoy life much more fully. The superior herbs are thus a primary source of true human empowerment. Tonic herbs are widely believed in the Far East to be transformational.

    Only herbs that meet specific qualifications are ranked as tonic herbs. For an herb to be recognized as a superior (tonic) herb, that herb must have been found over many centuries of human use to meet six specific qualifications:

    1. A tonic (superior) herb must have anti-aging characteristics and must aid in the attainment of a long life. 
    2. A tonic herb must have broad and profound health- promoting actions that result in a radiantly healthy life.
    3. A tonic herb must help balance our emotional and psychic energy so as to help improve one's state of spiritual and emotional well being and happiness. 
    4. A tonic herb must have no negative side-effects when used reasonably, and therefore may be taken continuously over a long period of time if desired, yielding cumulative, long-term benefits. This emphasis on safety is in accordance with the first law of Chinese herbalism - "Do no harm."  
    5. A tonic herb must taste good enough to be consumed easily and must be easily digestible and assimilable. Most of the herbs in the tonic category do taste good and, and in fact, any of these tonic herbs may be used in healthy cooking. Most are used commonly in a healthy Chinese diet. The tonic herbs are considered to be a major food group in the Asian diet.  
    6. A tonic herb must contain at least one of the three treasures in such abundance that it can contribute to the building and maintenance of that treasure in one who consumes it. Some of the tonic herbs contain just one of the treasures, some contain two and some contain all three, in varying amounts and with varying power. 

    The great Chinese tonic herbs can make a very major contribution toward your ultimate well being. They can be consumed on a daily basis to fortify you for the adventure of life and to help you take full advantage of life’s richness.

    Balancing and Replenishing the 3 Treasures

    Life is made up of 3 primary energies: Jing, Qi and Shen.

    A simple analogy by which one can understand the Three Treasures Paradigm is to think of life being like a candle. Jing is the candle. It is our reserve of life force and it determines how long we live and the power of our life. Qi is the flame. It is the energy of life, acquired through breathing and eating and manifested as our day-to-day vitality and our innate ability to defend ourselves and ward off pathogens. Shen is the light given off by the candle. It is our spirit, our state of psychological well being, our wisdom, and our spiritual experience and radiance.

    All disease and suffering arise out of the imbalances of the 3 Treasures, Jing, Qi and Shen.

    Treasure Rating
    Tonic herbalism uses tonic herbs to help replenish and re-balance the Three Treasures. By regulating and nourishing our Three Treasures, we will have a macro-control over our health without micro- managing the complex bodily functions. We cannot possibly micro-manage them, so we should not. We can nurture our body, tonify our regulatory mechanisms, and develop true adaptability so that our body can manage itself.

    Protect Yourself
    The world is a dangerous place, and may be becoming more dangerous. A word to the wise: protect yourself. Tonic herbalism uses tonic herbs to help regulate and boost our protective functions. These functions include those of the psyche and the immune system. The immune system can be honed in such a way as to be highly reliable, even in the face of severe challenge. Many Qi tonics have profound immune enhancing qualities in humans. Tonic herbs are well known to help in the development of a strong, clear mind and sharp intuition.

    The Herbs

    What Are the Tonic Herbs?
    The tonic herbs are the elite herbs of the Chinese herbal system, the most fully developed herbal system in the world. The Chinese tonic herbs have always held a very special place in Asian culture. These very special natural substances have been associated with the highest qualities of living, and thus are associated with the ideals of long life, slow aging, glowing health, happiness, wisdom, physical vitality, adaptability, sexual vigor and response, mental acuity and clear intuition, love and compassion, and harmonious relations with nature and with one's fellow human beings. The tonic herbs are not harsh and are not specifically medicinal in the conventional sense. Tonic herbs help to regulate our myriad functions so that we can re-establish and maintain our balance, our adaptability, our vigor and our youthfulness. By achieving these goals, one can be said to have attained true "radiant health.

    Why Consume Tonic Herbs?
    Tonic herbs are not medicinal. They nurture life, nurture the human spirit, slow down the aging process, and they protect us on every level - physically, immunologically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. What distinguishes Chinese tonic herbalism from other systems has been the attitude the Chinese and other Asian societies have taken toward health. Putting the emphasis on promoting health, they have created a body of knowledge concerning the health-promoting tonic herbs that no other society or system has matched. Other systems have generally emphasized the remedial over the preventive.

    Tonic Herbs Are Transformative
    Almost every person who uses the Chinese tonic herbs for any extended period of time will experience benefits. In some cases the benefits may be almost instantaneous and profound, while for others the influence may be subtle at first, with cumulative effects developing over time.

    Indeed, one of the profound benefits of the Chinese tonic herbs abides in their ability to change "vicious cycles" into "benevolent cycles." The tonics help reverse the process of one problem leading to more problems. Something good happens when you start taking these herbs. You start to feel balanced and strong inside. You start having abundant energy when you need it and yet you feel relaxed and at peace. Incredibly, you become more and more adaptive so that you can do a lot of things that you couldn't do before. You find yourself taking on challenges you couldn't have handled before, doing things that you used to avoid or that you thought you were incapable of doing.

    Where Do Tonic Herbs Come From?
    Tonic herbs come from China. They also come from North and South America, Europe, Indonesia, Tibet, Bhutan, Africa, New Zealand, Korea, Japan, Mongolia, Russia, and almost every region of the world. Tonic herbs are by their very nature safe and may be used for a lifetime to reinforce our health.
