Pine Pollen is one of the consummate superfoods of the world, containing over 200 bioactive and easily absorbable natural nutrients, minerals and vitamins in each serving. Pine pollen helps unlock peak physical and mental health and has been a staple in Chinese and Korean medicine for more than 2,000 years, helping people to restore energy, eliminate signs of aging, fatigue, and build a strong immune system. Pine pollen powder benefits all living things by being the most potent plant source of testosterone known.

He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum) is one of the most important adaptogenic root herbs in Chinese Taoist tonic herbalism. He Shou Wu's extraordinary ability to strengthen the kidneys and adrenals, as well as to modulate the hormonal system, results in its classification as a 'Jing tonic'. A Jing tonic boosts sexual energy, fertility, mental clarity, and the development of tissues and fluids like hair, tendons, and blood. Most of all, he shou wu is considered to be the number one anti-aging tonic.

Schizandra berries are traditionally used as a major tonic herb for the whole body, strengthening and toning many different organs. Its Chinese name is wu-wei-zi, which means five taste fruits. Schizandra is renowned as a beauty tonic and is considered to be a youth preserving herb. It has been used for centuries to make the skin soft, moist and radiant. It is also said to be a powerful tonic to the brain and mind, and is believed in China to enhance mental and physical capacities and to improve cardiovascular function.
