Real strength comes from the Three Treasures. These are the fundamental energies of life. All strength is rooted in Jing, the primal energy of life. When Jing is abundant, the body has the root power it needs to work and play vigorously and to live a long, successful life. So any formula or herbal program designed to build "strength" must help build Jing. Jing is divided into Yin Jing and Yang Jing. Yin Jing is the basic fuel of life. Yang Jing is the raw power of life. Together, they generate strength. Qi is the energy in our body that comes from eating and breathing. It is our day to day energy - our vitality. Qi tonics strengthen our assimilation and our respiration so that we can make Qi and use it in our body.

The Herbs in Strength Builder

It is widely used in primal Jing formulations, often as the main ingredient. Morinda is widely believed in China to increase mental power. It is also considered to be beneficial to the heart. Morinda is excellent for martial artists because it makes you strong.
He Shou Wu
Constant consumption of this famous "longevity herb," whose full name is Polygonum multiflorum, is said in the Orient to help return an aging person to youthfulness and to keep a young person young. It is an unsurpassed Yin Jing tonic, as well as a major blood tonic. It is said to increase energy and to clean the blood. As an essence tonic, it is believed to be a powerful sexual tonic when consumed regularly. Polygonum is widely believed in China to increase sperm production in men and to increase fertility in women. It is used in almost all tonics that are believed in the Orient to nurture the hair and teeth. This herb has been consumed by almost every Taoist that has ever lived, and is fundamental to the practice of the Taoist inner arts.
Eucommia is a superb Yang Jing tonic, used to strengthen the back (especially the lower back), skeleton, and joints (especially the knees and ankles). Eucommia is believed to confer strength and flexibility to the ligaments and tendons. It is often used by martial artists, yoga practitioners, Qi Gung practitioners, and other athletes to strengthen the back, knees, and the entire body. It has been found to be very helpful at regulating blood pressure, especially high blood pressure. Eucommia is widely used in China as a safe and effective sex tonic for men and women.
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 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.
Ligustrum is a Yin essence (Jing) tonic that is said by the Chinese to prolong life. It has been found to contain significant immune enhancing agents. It is also used as a blood tonic. It has a slightly cool energy.
This delicious fruit is very widely used as an excellent Yin Jing and blood tonic. Regular consumption of Lycium is traditionally believed to lead to a long and happy life. It is said that prolonged consumption of Lycium will promote cheerfulness and vitality. Lycium is also said to brighten the eyes and improve vision. It is said that Lycium strengthens the legs and enhances sexual function. Lycium fruit contains polysaccharides that have been demonstrated to strongly fortify the immune system. Lycium is also very rich in vitamin C and in B vitamins.
