New Chinese Herbal Breakthrough

Maintaining good health and promoting longevity have been twin goals of mankind since ancient times. In traditional Chinese medicine the secret to longevity is believed to be rooted in the blood, and that good health is maintained as an equilibrium between healthy blood and the vital energies that drive blood circulation.

Now, after devoting centuries to studying health and longevity, traditional Chinese herbalists are integrating modern science with their vast knowledge of herbs to achieve new breakthroughs in our understanding of how herbs can restore health to the aged and potentially increase lifespan.

The Key To Vital Energy

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), as a person enters old age there is a tendency to suffer from a deficiency of Qi (Chi), the vital energy which drives blood circulation. This deficiency can be the result of such factors as social stress, environmental influence, adverse mental states and illness or trauma. Eventually this deficiency can lead to poor blood circulation.

In comparing blood samples taken from both young and elderly people researchers at the Blood Stasis and Aging Research Group of the Shanghai Railway Medical Hospital discovered that blood samples from young adults is thinner and has a brighter hue than that of the elderly, revealing an apparent association between blood stagnation and aging.

When blood stagnation occurs the body's internal organs don't receive their normal nutrients and waste products aren't carried away at a sufficient rate. The organs are unable to perform their functions, resulting in weakness, disease and aging. A cycle begins which aggravates the imbalance of vital energy and blood. Therefore, the essence of aging is blood stasis caused by the imbalance between Qi (the vital energy) and blood.

After studying clinical data, microcirculation, and hemodynamics, Dexin Yan, a professor at the Shanghai Medical College, formulated his thesis on aging, asserting that "The human aging process results from an imbalance between the vital life energy and internal conditions of the body. This imbalance causes a thickening and stagnation of the blood in the circulatory system."

Blood Stagnation

In traditional Chinese medicine Qi and blood stagnation are the root causes of illness, and the key to the proper functioning of bodily organs is achieved by optimizing the performance of the microcirculatory, or capillary, system. This blood system acts as an internal exchange organ, functioning to distribute nutrients throughout the body, carry away metabolic wastes and regulate interstitial and endovascular fluids. Conversely, any breakdown of the microcirculatory system leads to a series of pathological changes involving the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems, while contributing to senility and speeding the aging process.

Chinese Herbal Breakthrough:

After eight years of clinical and laboratory testing, the Blood Stasis & Aging Research Group at the Shanghai Railway Central Hospital, headed by Dr. Yan, introduced it's new herbal formula, Herbal Yuth. A product of clinical development and scientific evaluation, Herbal Yuth was designed to serve as the foundation remedy for many of the conditions associated with aging in traditional Chinese medicine. After studying clinical data and scientific findings on aging and senility, Dr. Yan arrived at a formula that combines ten of the most valuable herbs revered by herbalists around the world for their ability to promote overall health while supporting the body's energy levels. Herbal Yuth also contains an assortment of pure, natural substances, including elements traditionally used by the Chinese to harmonize the body and balance the yin and yang.

Dr. Yans Herbal Yuth:
Key Ingredients:

  1. Radix Astragalus (Huang Qi)
  2. Radix Notoginseng (San Qi)
  3. Radix Angelica Sinensis (Dang Gui)
  4. Rhizoma Atractylodes Macrocephalae (Bai Zhu)
  5. Rhizoma Atractylodes (Cang Zhu)
  6. Flos Carthami (Hong Hua)
  7. Fructus Lycii (Gou Qi Zi)
  8. Radix Glycyrrhizae (Gan Cao)
  9. Radix Salvia Miltiorrhizae (Dan Shen)
  10. Radix Codonopsis (Dang Shen)
Herbal Yuth is designed to improve blood flow, reduce plasma viscosity and repair capillary damage while promoting drainage of metabolic waste from cells, including lipofuscin, a form of biological waste thought to be a root cause of many aging problems. Herbal Yuth is also intended to benefit the body's immune system, improving resistance to diseases such as colds and flu, while bringing about a marked improvement in physiology, histology, and immunology, especially in aging populations, competitive athletes, and overactive, stressed adults.

Clinical Study of 150 Elderly Patients:

To evaluate Herbal Yuth and estimate its effect on microcirculation, Chinese researchers conducted a clinical study of 150 patients ranging in age from 55 to 89 years. Test subjects took the product for a one month period. The trial found statistically significant improvements of such common symptoms as chest tightness, chest pains, heart palpitations coughing, shortness of breath, dizziness, lower limb edema, lack of appetite, poor mood and poor complexion.

Researchers also found significant improvements in clinical measurements, showing a reduction and regulation of blood pressure, reduced ECG abnormalities, lower viscosity of whole blood plasma, improved capillary microcirculation, increased immunity, increased synthesis of plasma albumin, and improve-ments in the plasma albumin/plasma globulin ratio.

Interpretation of the clinical results indicate that Herbal Yuth possesses the ability to expand coronary arteries and the arterioles of the brain and lungs, to raise T-cell immunity, and to promote the synthesis and metabolism of proteins. The formula should have excellent supportive actions on such elderly disorders as insufficient blood supply to the brain, coronary heart disease, chronic bronchitis, and hypoproteinemia.

Herbal Yuth is a Chinese anti-aging formula designed to improve microcirculation and restore internal organ function. Chinese medicine considers blood stagnation to be the underlying cause of many conditions characterized by pain or lack of nourishment from poor blood flow. Damage to capillaries, thickening of the blood, and lack of new blood formation are the components of microcirculation problems Herbal Yuth is designed to support.

Herbal Yuths' ability to support microcirculation make it useful in support of strokes, angina, atherosclerosis, thromboarthritis, migraines, and other circulatory disorders. Because blood flow to internal organs is improved, function of the liver, brain, heart, and other organs is also enhanced. As a sports formula, Herbal Yuth is valuable following injury or after workouts to reduce congestion and inflammation in the tissues. Since Herbal Yuth improves cardiovascular functioning, enhanced sports performance should follow ingestion.


3 tablets, once per day. Wait two weeks after stroke to begin administration. Contraindicated in pregnancy.
