Chinese Theory

From a Chinese perspective, Qi is the vital energy, or flame, of life. Fatigue results from the depletion of Qi. The herbs in this blend are used to support a normal level of Qi. The spleen is considered to produce Qi from the food the horse eats. When overworked, poorly fed or heavily stressed, Spleen Qi becomes deficient. Herbs in this blend maintain Spleen Qi and all the spleen functions to, in turn, support the overall level of Qi in the entire body.
