Herbal Pills To Boost Your
Energy and Nourish Your Blood


These herbal pills to boost your energy and nourish your blood are classic, time-tested formulas that have been used for centuries in China and are still in use today.

They are safe, natural and highly effective when used properly.

In Chinese herbal medicine such formulas are classified as tonics, e.g. there are energy tonics and blood tonics. Chinese herbal tonics can be used to treat existing health conditions or as supplements in cases of lack of energy, tiredness and fatigue.

Herbal Pills To Boost Your Energy

Energy tonics increase your body's qi (vital energy) and nourish your digestive organs and lungs, which enhances your body's ability to produce energy from food and air. Energy tonics often include ginseng as the primary herb. Example formulas include:

  • Four Gentlemen Pills (Si Jun Zi Wan in Chinese)
  • Six Gentlemen Pills (Liu Jun Zi Wan)
  • Centre Supplementing, Qi Boosting Pills (Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan)
  • Lung Supplementing Pills (Bu Fei Wan)
  • Ginseng Spleen-Fortifying Pills (Ren Shen Jian Pi Wan)

Herbal Pills To Nourish Your Blood

Blood tonics primarily nourish your liver, spleen and heart since, according to traditional Chinese medical theory, these are the organs primarily involved with blood production and circulation. Example formulas include:

  • Four Agents Pills (Si Wu Wan)
  • Liver Supplementing Pills (Bu Gan Wan)
  • Danggui & Peony Pills (Dang Gui Shao Yao Wan)
  • Celestial Emperor Heart-Supplementing Pills (Tian Wang Bu Xin Wan)

Herbal Pills To Boost Your Energy and Nourish Your Blood

According to traditional Chinese medical theory, energy and blood deficiency often occur together, especially in chronic conditions. Here are two commonly used formulas:

  • Spleen Returning Pills (Gui Pi Wan)
  • Eight Treasure Pills (Ba Zhen Wan)

Chinese herbal tonics are usually taken in 3 daily doses before meals. The dosage and duration of treatment depends on factors such as your age, how long you've had a particular symptom or condition and how severe it is. Generally speaking, the more chronic your condition, the longer you'll need to take the tonic. Some people, such as the elderly or chronically weak, may take Chinese herbal tonics indefinitely.

However unless you know how to use them and which one is best for your particular condition, you should consult a trained practitioner of Chinese herbal medicine or an acupuncturist who also prescribes Chinese herbs. If you're not sure where to find a practitioner try your local Yellow Pages or ask another health professional.
