‘Well-Being’ is the legendary and once-secret ‘Emperors Formula’ created during the Ming Dynasty for the exclusive use of Chinese Emperors. These people had high-stress and high-stakes lives. They were constantly under attack, and it was common to have dozens of concubines to look after. To prevent royal burn-out, premature ageing, and loss of libido (excessive sex depletes Kidneys), the best herbalists in the land – with access to a limitless Imperial budget – developed this formula over centuries. It hones in on kidney power, and was also designed to support the Emperors in implementing their magnificent, ambitious and visionary ideas. Thousands of years later, the formula that built empires, that was once only available to an Emperor, is now accessible to us.
In Chinese medicine willpower and confidence is connected to your kidneys. If they are strong and healthy you’ll embrace challenges and change with confidence. If your kidney function is weak though, you will lack confidence and fear change. We need to be able to change to go for our goals and be healthy and happy, but lots of things we do slowly weaken our kidneys and we end up scared of making change. There are several ways to build strong and healthy kidneys but the easiest way is to take high quality Chinese herbal formulas, and Well-Being is one of the most powerful.
It is a combination of four legendary herbs: ashwagandha, astragalus, rehmannia and Siberian ginseng. Rehmannia is a longevity herb that tonifies Jing (life force), supports the kidneys and adrenal glands and nourishes the blood. It has a calming effect (yin) if you are stressed (good for nervous system burnout). It boosts energy if you are tired, and creates clarity if you are feeling confused. As it supports adrenals it is used for hyper-thyroidism, and it has an anti-inflammatory effect. Ashwagandha is used to lower blood sugar levels (one study on type 2 diabetes found supplementing with ashwagandha for 30 days lowered fasting blood sugar levels as effectively as a medication), boost brain function, help fight symptoms of anxiety and depression, and reduce inflammation and stress. Astragalus helps the body fight off stress and diseases. It boosts the immune-system and energy levels, and is traditionally used to treat colds, upper respiratory conditions, arthritis, asthma, diabetes and blood pressure. And this is just three of the power herbs in the formula.
The only place you can get Well-Being is from the Modere website, as the company’s original founders negotiated rights to the formula back in the 70s. If you want one thing to do right away without changing any other part of your life, choose supplements, and if you only want one of them, make it Well-Being.
