Dragon Herbs Microcosmic Orbit, 100 (500mg each) veg capsules
Microcosmic Orbit is an important and very useful formula used in the Taoist and Chan (Zen) Buddhist traditions to supply energy to, to open, and to regulate the primal energy channels and to promote the flow of energy in these channels. Microcosmic Orbit is extremely centering and empowering. It also has an "astringent" quality, which prevents the leaking of Jing (Essence).
Microcosmic Orbit is a great formula for people on a mission to build up their Jing. It may be used simultaneously with appropriate Jing tonic formulations that actually increase the amount of Jing in the body. It may also be used by those who currently have an abundance of Jing within their system, but who are being subjected to stress or are actively engaged in significant sexual activity. The formula may also be used by athletes with great effect. It prevents exhaustion and builds both physical and mental endurance.
The Herbs in Microcosmic Orbit
Astragalus Seed has been recognized as a superb and potent immune system tonic by modern researchers. Astragalus has been used for over 2000 years to strengthen the body as a whole. It is used to tonify the “Protective Qi.” This Protective Qi is a special kind of energy which circulates just under the skin and in the muscle. Protective Qi is a Yang energy.
One of the most important herbs in the world, Astragalus has been recognized as a superb and potent immune system tonic by modern researchers. Astragalus has been used for over 2000 years to strengthen the body as a whole. Astragalus is believed by the Oriental people to strengthen muscle and improve metabolic functions.
Astragalus is said to have another effect on the “surface” of the body---that is, it is used to tonify the “Protective Qi,” known as Wei Qi in Chinese. This Protective Qi is a special kind of energy which circulates just under the skin and in the muscle. Protective Qi is a Yang energy. Protective Qi circulates in the subcutaneous tissues providing suppleness to the flesh and adaptive energy to the skin. This function is essential to life
An important effect of Astragalus is in its ability to fortify the “Upright Qi.” Upright Qi is the energy allocated by the body to maintain upright posture and to maintain the position of the organs in their healthy position in their battle with gravity. As one gets older, or if one experiences chronic fatigue or exhaustion, or during illness, this Upright Qi is easily depleted resulting in the sinking, or “prolapse,” of organs.
Astragalus enhances the function of the skin to eliminate toxins. It is commonly used to help sores in the skin to come to a head and suppurate, and thus to heal more quickly and effectively.
Astragalus has a mild diuretic action and helps to relieve excessive sweating. It is helpful in treating loose stools, chronic diarrhea and chronic or recurring colds. If a cold lasts too long it can cause a general fatigue syndrome that can itself become chronic. Astragalus is very useful for people who just can’t seem to shake a cold, and Astragalus can replace the Qi necessary to regain full strength.
Ligustrum Fruit is a very good Yin essence. It is considered to be an anti-aging, rejuvenative herb. Ligustrum tonifies Kidney and Liver Yin, enhances immune functions, clears heat, brightens the eyes.
Cuscuta Seed is designed to benefit Yin and Yang Jing. Cuscuta is considered to be an anti-aging herb. It is used to increase fertility in both men and women and is listed as an aphrodisiac in all traditional Chinese pharmacopoeias. It is used to tonify the Kidneys, and benefit Yin and Yang Jing.
Lycium (Goji) Berry is very widely used as an excellent Yin Jing and blood tonic. Regular consumption of this delicious fruit is traditionally believed to lead to a long, vigorous and happy life. It is said that prolonged consumption of Lycium will promote cheerfulness and vitality. Goji (Lycium) is also said to brighten the eyes and improve vision. It strengthens the legs and has long been a favorite herb of Chinese athletic artists and athletes.
Schizandra Berry is historically consumed by Chinese royalty. It is one of the few herbs that contains all three treasures. Schizandra is renowned as a beauty tonic and is considered to be a youth preserving herb. It has been used for centuries to make the skin soft, moist and radiant. It is also said to be a powerful tonic to the brain and mind, and is believed in China to improve memory.
Schizandra is a famous tonic historically consumed by Chinese royalty and by Taoist masters. It is one of the few herbs that contains all three treasures. Schizandra is renowned as a beauty tonic and is considered to be a youth preserving herb. It has been used for centuries to make the skin soft, moist and radiant. It is also said to be a powerful tonic to the brain and mind, and is believed in China to improve memory. It is also said to be an excellent sexual tonic when consumed regularly. It is said to help produce abundant sexual fluids, increase sexual endurance and to strengthen the whole body. It is used in many tonic formulations as an "astringent." Schizandra has a wonderful multi‑layered flavor when processed properly.
Schizandra develops the primary energies of life, and generates vitality and radiant beauty when used regularly for some time. If used for 100 days successively, Schizandra is said to purify the blood, sharpen the mind, improve memory, rejuvenate the Kidney energy (especially the sexual functions in both men and women), and cause the skin to become radiantly beautiful.
The Taoists especially revered Schizandra. Schizandra was my teacher’s, Sung Jin Park’s, favorite herb. This is because Schizandra contains all five elemental energies in abundance, contains all three treasures in abundance, and enters all twelve meridians. Master Park considered it to be the quintessential herbal substance.
Schizandra is said to increase the Water Qi in the Kidney. In particular, it is said to vastly increase the “water of the genital organs,” referring to the sexual fluids. Schizandra is said to promote the production of semen. It is famous for its ability to relieve sexual fatigue and for increasing the sexual staying-power in men. Schizandra is also said to increase circulation in and sensitivity of the female genitals. Many women claim increased genital warmth and sensation after using Schizandra for a period of time. The Chinese sexual classics claim that continuous use by a woman will increase the amount of “female elixir,” a euphemism for vaginal secretions, during intercourse.
Schizandra is considered to have “aphrodisiac” qualities, especially when combined with other Kidney tonics. Furthermore, Schizandra is one of the most important astringent herbs used in Chinese herbalism. An astringent herb conserves fluids, and in the case of Schizandra, it tends to contain sexual fluids until the appropriate time of release. Thus, consuming Schizandra for a period of time, one tends to build up sexual fluids. Schizandra is used in sexual formulations to prevent premature ejaculation and to help promote incredible endurance.
Schizandra is widely used to beautify the skin and to protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun and wind. Due to the astringent quality of Schizandra, the skin tends to hold its moisture and becomes full and beautiful. It has always been very popular with the wealthy men and women of China because of its youth preserving and rejuvenating effects. I have seen the benefits of this herb with my own eyes hundreds of times in my life. People who start taking Schizandra regularly all change for the better. Their skin virtually glows and becomes clear and fine after several months.
This herb is considered to be one of the premium mind tonics of herbalism. It is used to sharpen concentration, improve memory and increase alertness. Yet, unlike caffeine-like stimulants, Schizandra does not produce nervousness. In fact, some people consider Schizandra mildly “calming” while producing wakefulness and improved focus.
It has been demonstrated that human intellectual activity can be enhanced and work efficiency increased by consuming Schizandra. Various tests have shown that moderate therapeutic doses of Schizandra can improve various activities requiring concentration, fine coordination, sensitivity and endurance. The tests in humans confirming Schizandra’s efficacy in these areas range from threading needles to running marathons.
Human studies have also shown that Schizandra can improve vision, even enlarging the field of vision, and can improve hearing. It also improves the discrimination ability of the skin receptors. It has been determined that this increased sensitivity is due to improved function of the central nervous system’s ability to analyze data flowing to it from the peripheral sensors
Plantago Seed is an astringent herb that reduces the loss of Jing and conserves bodily fluids.
Rubus Seed is sweet and astringent. It is used to tonify the Kidneys and liver, and reduces the loss of Jing.
Polygala Root is traditionally used as a Spirit tonic to relax the mind, calm the emotions and to aid in the sleep process.It is thought to enhance dreaming and aid in creative thinking. And it not only aids creative thinking, but the ability to manifest our ideas. In fact, the ancient name for this herb is the "Will Strengthener."
Together, these eight herbs are used to tonify the energy of the Microcosmic Orbit, the vastly important energy channel the circulatesalong the central line of the body, up the back and down the front creating a complete "orbit." It is believed as a basic principle of Taoism, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Qi Gung that if this channel is healthy, then the whole body is healthy.

All of the herbs in this formulation have been demonstrated to be remarkably safe substances.

The Three Treasures
In traditional Asian healthcare, there are said to be Three Treasures, or three primary types of energy in the body. These energies are known as treasures because they are the basis for life. The three treasures are Jing, Qi, and Shen, also known as Essence, Vitality, and Awareness. True health and happiness cannot be obtained unless all three treasures are valued and not wasted.
