A native formulation of Guangxi, an autonomous region of China
This TCM formula has the special function to strengthen kidney yang and congenital jing. Tonifies the lung yin, strengthen Qi and nourishes the blood.
The kidney’s main function is to store “jing”, an essence that contains all the critical ingredients needed to make new life, and controls the maturation of sexual instinct. Insufficient kidney jing, qi or yang therefore, affects sexual function directly.
A famous Chinese doctor named Zhang Jie Bin (approximately 1563-1640) wrote “there are two kidneys, (kidney yin and yang), with the Gate of Vitality between them. The kidney is the organ of water and fire, the abode of yin and yang, the sea of essence, and it determines life and death.”
Congenital jing comes from the parents and determines basic constitution; it cannot be altered, but it can be positively influenced by acquired jing. Acquired jing is produced from food by the spleen and stomach, stored in the kidney and circulated in the body. Congenital and acquired jing have a promoting/ controlling relationship with each other and their interaction produces kidney jing; all three play a part in determining growth and development, sexual maturation, reproduction, and aging.

Kidneys and liver rejuvenation
While Western medicine emphases the link between cardiovascular function and Erectile Dysfunction (ED), TCM places importance on liver and kidney ailments as causative factor for development of ED. Western medicine involves a step-wise approach by targeting the relevant organ systems to treat various clinical symptoms; but TCM focuses on restoring the balance between various organs to achieve harmony and holistic approach to inner sense.
In modern Science, the kidneys may be playing the role of maintaining the composition of blood by removing waste and excess water, however the kidney system in TCM has a broader range of functions. A person’s growth, maturation and reproduction is also believed to be governed by the kidneys. The essence stored in the kidney is bestowed to each individual from their parents at conception, hence TCM regards the kidney as the “congenital constitution” and origin of life.
The kidney essence is critical for growth and development, and normal aging process will see both vitality and essence decrease. After birth, kidney essence increases gradually and becomes abundant as the body develops. During the early years, the individual undergoes physical changes marked by permanent teeth, hair and height growth. During adolescence, kidney essence peaks to drive the maturation of organs and form the basis of our ability to reproduce.
Energy levels are at its highest and bones are strong during middle age. However, it goes downhill thereafter. Kidney essence depletes and the functions of the organs decline with advancement in age, showing worrying signs of senescence such as deafness, hunchback, hair and teeth loss. Imbalances in kidney essence, ‘qi’, yin or yang can affect the growth and development of humans, resulting in development disorders, congenital mental retardation, soft and weak bones in children and premature aging in adults.
The kidney is the most fundamental organ system of your body, which holds the genetic blueprint of your inherent body constitution and how healthy you will be. Whether yin or yang deficiency, it is essential to trace back to the kidneys’ reserves and address the issue immediately.
Because emotional disharmony, which causes Qi Stasis, lies at the root of many energetic imbalances, the liver, which is responsible for the free flow of Qi, often is thought to be involved in healthy sexuality. This concept is particularly important because the Liver Channel wraps around the genitals in men, and the reproductive organs in women, and is closely related to reproductive capability. Simply put, a strong kidney -liver combination enhances sexuality.
Premature aging – decreased libido
Main ingredient: Gecko
Gejie is a kind of lizard which the zoological name is called Gekko gecko Linnaeus. Gejie is a rare specialty of Guangxi. It is a well known ingredient for strengthening body and the internal organs. This ingredient is also used in the treatment of premature ejaculation and thin semen. Practioners know that medicinal Geckos are known to mate for a few days at a stretch. Hence its 1000 year old history.

General weakness, weakness due to long illness, or during a chronic disease, overfatigue due to excessive work, degenerative conditions, over-urinating, lumbago due to deficiency of the kidney and liver, difficulty breathing, chronic cough (with or without phlegm).
NOTE: This formula can be very stimulating and should not be taken by those with YIN deficiency heat. Also, do not take during common cold or similar condition. Not suitable for pregnant women.
In general terms, yin deficiency means over-heating. Or too hot versus too cold.
The body is a balance of yin and yang. Perfect health is when both yin and yang is in equilibrium. one side can become stronger than the other and imbalance occurs. Tonics are often yang in nature. However, excessive yang will cause imbalance.
When the body becomes too yin (cold), it becomes weak and sexual performance suffers. That is why tonics such as this nourishing formula promote the yang of the body.
Tonics promote Yang (heat). When Yang is deficient, there is ‘soreness or cold sensation in the knees and lumbar regions, aversion to cold, cold limbs, spiritual fatigue, difficulty in urination, enuresis, incontinence, declining libido, or impotence in severe cases; female sterility..’ : http://www.shen-nong.com/eng/principles/kidneyyinyang.html
