FLOW: VITALITY TONIC | QI NOURISHER
Flow through life with grace and vitality, open up your higher energy systems and tune into your own natural power. This eloquent blend of nine classic tonic herbs are an adaptogenic force of spirited energy and uplifting enthusiasm.
These herbs are classically known to be robust, yet gentle energy transformation tonics that invigorate the spleen, breakup Qi stagnation, and support proper lymphatic ‘flow’. Proper spleen function is pivotal in transporting nourishment to the organ systems and to support immune function, digestive health, regulation of blood sugar, building of the blood and increasing red + white blood cells.
The important spleen Qi herbs in this formula have been traditionally used in Taoist herbology to aid in metabolism / weight management, help break up accumulations and stagnation in the middle jiao (abdominal area) and are known to be very beneficial, especially for women.
This formula makes an absolutely delicious hot or cold tea and can make for the perfect afternoon elixir. When taken around 4-6pm (bladder/kidney organ clock) the cleansing effects may become more apparent. The primary herbs used are recognized to be very effective in transforming any dampness.
As strong digestive fire rises in the sea of Qi, it may nourish and activate all higher energy systems. When Qi flows freely we are vital and evolve.
