Fusion Health Tienchi Ginseng
Fusion Health TIENCHI GINSENG is a powerful traditional Chinese herb used over many thousands of years. Sometimes referred to as the Emperor's Ginseng, China's most famous herbalist, Li Shi Zhen wrote that Tienchi is more valuable than gold.TIENCHI GINSENG enhances stamina and endurance, in part, by stimulating muscles to burn fat for energy during exercise, whilst conserving glycogen stores. By so doing it helps maintain peak effort and may be useful as part of a weight loss program.
TIENCHI GINSENG provides powerful support to soft tissue recovery by promoting the healing of microtrauma to muscles, tendons and ligaments following strenuous exercise.
TIENCHI GINSENG quickly relieves the symptoms of inflammation, pain, swelling, bleeding and bruising associated with soft tissue injury including delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and sprains and strains. TIENCHI GINSENG also promotes a healthy heart.

Tienchi ginseng's cardio-protective benefits are achieved progressively over weeks or months. Therefore, tienchi ginseng must not be viewed as an immediate substitute for conventional medication; rather it is an excellent complementary medicine for people working with their practitioner to improve long-term health outcomes and reduce their need for conventional medication.
Medicinal properties Apart from its anti-inflammatory, anti-haemorrhagic, anti-contusive, analgesic, anti-arrhythmic, anti-hypertensive (lowers blood pressure), cardio-protective (protects the heart), anti-lipaemic (lowers high cholesterol and triglycerides), hepato-protective (protects the liver), hypoglycaemic (lowers high blood sugar levels in non-insulin-dependant type 2 diabetes), metabolic enhancing (enhances cellular energy metabolism), adaptogenic (improves resistance to stress), mild anabolic and androgenic (stimulates protein synthesis and muscle development), antioxidant, chemo- and radiation-protective properties, tienchi ginseng also demonstrates anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal effects in vitro.
Herbal energetics In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), tienchi ginseng is considered to have an affinity for the liver, stomach and large intestine meridian systems. Its energetic qualities, or therapeutic properties, are said to enter the body via these channels. It is therefore not surprising that recent experiments show that where the portal vein is cut before oral ingestion, tienchi ginseng loses its effectiveness as a haemostatic (ability to stop bleeding).
Tienchi ginseng is sweet, astringent, bitter, dry, restoring and relaxing with a warm energy. Cooked tienchi ginseng does not have the blood-regulating action of raw tienchi ginseng and is considered a blood (xuè) tonic and yin tonic. Blood tonics provide substantial energy and nutritive forces to restore the blood, strengthen the body and improve its nutrition. Yin tonics are said to nourish, nurture and moisten the material aspects of the body.
