Herbalists Note:  The Zheng-28 is based on the traditional "Imperial" class of herbs in Chinese Medicine.  There were three classes of Medicine according to the ancient Medical texts.  The lowest class was for tending to overt illness.  The middle class of medicine was that of immune building, convalescence or what we today think of as "preventative medicine."  The Imperial class of medicine had to do with nourishing our highest physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual health.  The herbs used were precious and expensive.  They were to be used ideally as part of a thorough going program of diet, lifestyle, exercise, acupuncture, meditation and cultivation of the "Jun Zi," The Gentleman Sage. 
    Today the same “Imperial Class” herbs are known in Western Medicine as "Adaptogens."  These herbs often contain terpenes and other bio-active compounds known to help humans to adapt to various stressors.   They have "Steroidal" type benefits without any of the deleterious side effects of steroids.  For this reason these herbs are often used for sports performance, sexual prowess and adaptation to extremely stressful conditions such as high altitude or life in modern society.  These herbs are also used for emotional and even spiritual endeavors as evidenced by their traditional use by monks, meditators and warriors.  The Zheng-28 is a primary Qi Gong and Kung Fu training tincture in our local classes.   It has shown clinical success in the Subaru primal Quest race winning "Team Epinephrine" in 2002.  It was used on Choy Oyo (8,000m) in recent years, and has most recently been used on Mt Everest and Lhotse (8000+ m).  This formula empowers the body mind and soul for highest and best adaptation to the challenges of life.
