Many people may initially snicker at Chinese medicine and their herbal tinctures the way they may scoff at a snake-oil salesman back in the 1800s, but to associate the two is grossly ignorant of the over 5,000 year history of well-documented research by the Chinese herbal masters. Remember, Western allopathic medicine is still in it’s infancy, and many believe out of sync with the natural integrated systems of the body and of the Earth.
8 Immortals is the ultimate example of an adaptogenic herbal supplement from master Chinese herbalist Ron Teegaurden. He’s the source many experts rely on for information on Chinese herbs and how to properly cultivate them. He’s dedicated his life to mastering the Chinese herbal wisdom since he was a young man in the early 70’s.
8 Immortals Elixir is a supertonic anti-aging formulation composed of the most powerful tonic herbs on earth. All of the herbs in this extraordinary tincture have anti-aging, immune strengthening, spirit lifting, mind strengthening qualities. This truly is the ultimate example of an adaptogenic herbal supplement. It is composed of eight of the elite tonic herbs, and all of the herbs used are super-premium grade, far beyond conventional commercial grade – in fact, most of the herbs are wild harvested in the remote mountains where they gained their reputations over many centuries. A few are the best-cultivated or cultured variety available in the world. The product is named in honor of the “eight immortals,” eight Taoist adepts who were said to have achieved immortality. All of them are associated with tonic herbs.
The Wild Ginseng comes from Changbai Mountain, the 65 million year original source of Ginseng. All roots are at least thirteen years old, meaning the roots have achieved immortality (the genetic “death domain” has shut down).
The Reishi used is also from Changbai Mountain and is also collected wild from the ancient forest. Wild Reishi has traditionally been known as the “mushroom of immortality.”
Wild American Ginseng has been part of Chinese herbalism for over six hundred years. We use only immortalized roots from the Catskill Mountains, the favored choice of Asian Ginseng connoisseurs.
Eight Immortals also contains the herb known as the “quintessence of Chinese tonic herbs,” Wild Schizandra from the remote and pristine forests of Changbai Mountain. This Schizandra is not cultivated or collected at low elevation. It is the real deal, the same Schizandra consumed by Taoist hermits for thousands of years as an elixir of immortality. This Wild Schizandra imbues mental, physical and psychic power, preserves youthfulness and robust inner power.
Wild Snow Lotus is collected above the snow line of Tibet. The white flower blooms just once every five years at altitudes above 18,000 feet. It is one of the three herbal treasures of the Himalayas (along with Cordyceps and Rhodiola, also in this formula). It is a powerful adaptogen and superb cleansing tonic.
Tibetan Rhodiola is likewise collected from above the snowline of the Himalayas. The red aromatic root is one of the world’s most powerful adaptogens and has many powerful tonic properties.
Wild He Shou Wu, from the mountains of Yunnan, is one of the most famous tonic herbs in the world.
The Duanwood Reishi (organically grown on Duanwood logs in the high mountains on mountain water),
Heaven Mountain Goji (grown on glacial melt),
organically grown Cordyceps fruiting bodies and are the best you can buy of each of these herbs. All of them have potent anti-aging properties.
The herbs combine to build the body’s and mind’s ability to resist stress and overcome challenges on both a short term and long term basis. The herbs have a profound influence on the quality of the skin, mind and vitality.
