Herbs that Replenish Essence or QI

Many of these are similar to the anti-aging herbs list that will be discussed later. QI herbs are designed to increase the QI flow, or life force essence of the body.  They should be taken in moderation.  If your body is currently undergoing illness from upper respiratory infections, such as if your body is fighting a cold or flu, you should stop taking these, and allow your body’s immune system to recover through more liquids and taking herbs that fight the flu.

QI herbs are also known by these names: Yin Herbs, Kidney and Spleen strengthening herbs, Oja, Central Energy herbs and Herbs that Invigorate the Kidneys. These herbs work best during the winter season.

These include the following: Fo Ti, Shilajit, Goji Berry, Plastrum Testudinus, Rehmannia, Codonopsis, Eucommia, Ophiopogon, Asparagus Root, Phellodendroon, Cornus, Cassia Seeds, Glossy Privet, Dioscorea opposita (nagaimo, Chinese yam, Korean yam) - Dioscorea is high in beneficial plant starches and mixes well with bone / tendon building herbs, Lotus Seeds, Epimedium - Epimedium also helps nourish the pituary gland, Cistanche, Solomons Seal, Cuscuta, Reishi Mushroom, Longan Fruit.  Longan Fruit synergizes well with Goji Berry and Schinandra Berry. Rhizoma Shatavari, Pueraria. Pueraria synergizes well with Ginseng and Astragalus.

The herb Poria, assists in nutrient absorption. And there have been patents issued showing that Poria is used to enhance the absorption of nutrients and other herbs. 

The best way to work with herbs to create perfect health in the body is to understand the principals of Yin and Yang.

The 2 primary organs most responsible for keeping the body in excellent condition are the Liver and the Kidneys.  Each of these organs should have a balance of Yin and Yang energy.  This energy varies with the seasons.  During late fall into Winter, the kidneys need more yin herbs to nourish the kidneys to restore a balance of Yin and Yang energy to the kidneys.
During early Spring into late Summer we want more Yin herbs to balance the liver and reduce liver heat.
In some cases, such as the herb Cordyceps, it is a both yin and yang herb. So it can safely be used over long periods of time.
A complete balance occurs when all 5 Yin organs are balanced, which is most common during fall.  
I have grouped the herbs by category. 
Category Class 1 herbs are the most fast acting and effective anti-aging herbs.

This is a formula, soon to be released, making use of some of the best anti-aging, longevity herbs from both Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs. The below herbs are soaked in rice wine and grape seed oil for a period of days than strained and made into a tincture.  Just one drop per half gallon of spring water daily is all that is required for optimal anti-aging effects. Many of these herbs relieve lower back pain and lower blood pressure.  This could by why Mr. Li Ching-Yuen was able to sit up straight for long periods also used this term in many of this secrets of longivity (to sit up straight).

The basic formula is as follows:
