In Chinese herbalism, all herbs contain one or several of the 5 flavors: sweet, sour, spicy (pungent), salty and bitter. The five flavors represent different functions of the human body. Schizandra is the only herb that contains all five flavors. The very name of Schizandra in Chinese, Wu Wei Zi, means “Five Flavors Fruit.”
Remember Ron Teeguarden’s “First Rule of Tonic Herbalism,” summed up in a single word – Compliance. If you don’t take the herbs, they won’t work.”

Dragon Herbs practices Tonic Herbalism, which is based on a 5000 year old system of health promotion, protection, and psychological transformation.
The highest level of health care stresses the promotion of positive health as the primary goal. When sufficiently nurtured, our body is fully capable of regulating its own multitude of independent yet united functions, the way nature intended. Science has not been able to, and will never be able to, match that power of Nature. The herbs used for this approach have traditionally been called the superior herbs, but today they are called the tonic herbs. The utilization of the tonic herbs is called Tonic Herbalism.
The tonic herbs are the elite herbs of the Chinese herbal system, the most fully developed herbal system in the world. The Chinese tonic herbs have always held a very special place in Asian culture. These very special natural substances have been associated with the highest qualities of living. The tonic herbs are not harsh and are not specifically medicinal in the conventional sense.
Tonic herbs come from China. They also come from North and South America, Europe, Indonesia, Tibet, Bhutan, Africa, New Zealand, Korea, Japan, Mongolia, Russia and almost every region of the world. Tonic herbs are by their very nature safe and may be used for a lifetime.
