There are numerous energizers available in health food stores, but too many are herbal stimulants, offering a quick uplift with a long-term downside. These substances stimulate the adrenal response, often with negative effects, such as nervousness, increased stress, and eventual exhaustion. Stimulants mobilize energy, but add nothing of value to our bodies; on the contrary, they can rapidly lead to depletion of vitality.

Ginseng: Botanical Adaptogen
Ginseng is a legendary tonifier first written about in the Sui Dynasty of China (580 - 601 A.D.). Besides being one of the most highly regarded energy tonics of Chinese herbalism, ginseng is classified as an adaptogen, which helps the body adapt to a variety of physical and psychological stresses.
The popular use of ginseng in the United States began because of its great reputation in Asia. However, ginseng is very seldom used by itself in Chinese health practices. In traditional Chinese herbalism it is combined with herbs considered to assist and augment its tonifying actions.
Ginseng Revitalizerï¿½: Superior to Ginseng Alone
Ginseng Revitalizer has as its foundation a classic Chinese formula (Four Noble Gentlemen, Si Junzi Tang), which has remained one of Chinaï¿½s most valued tonic formulas for almost 1,000 years. This formula features Asian ginseng, with the assistance of atractylodes to enhance digestion and nutrition, and poria sclerotium, an immune-stimulating mushroom.
The sweetness of licorice root permeates the blend, so that the qualities of the herbs are melded together, and licorice itself has adaptogenic properties. To this classic Chinese formula, Planetary Herbals adds tonics and adaptogens from other traditions, such as American Ginseng, and the powerful adaptogen, the root of Siberian Eleutherococcus senticosus.
Tienchi ginseng is added to support circulation, while codonopsis and astragalus are additional highly valued Chinese tonic herbs that augment and expand the effects of ginseng, for increased vitality and endurance. Ginger root adds a warming, spicy quality to the blend.
