Restoring Energy and Vitality

Good physical energy and a sense of vitality are something we all seek to have in our lives. Without adequate energy reserves we find ourselves curled up in bed, sleeping away our Saturday mornings. In addition, when we don’t have good energy reserves, we lose our motivation to eat healthy foods and make healthier lifestyle choices. At times like this, we can use some extra support to help get us back on track again.  Herbal formulas have been used for thousands of years to supply nutrients and phytochemicals to help the body restore health and vitality and recover from illness. If you have been feeling a lack of energy and vitality lately, consider supplementing with one of these wonderful herbal formulas to help support and rebalance your body.

Chinese Trigger Immune – is a unique herbal tonic formula which was designed to rejuvenate the cells of the body to help counteract fatigue, poor health, and general weakness. This is an excellent formula to help revitalize the body. The herbs in this formula support healthy circulation, enhance digestion, tone the liver and kidneys, and help support recovery from long term stress. In addition, as the name suggests, Trigger Immune helps to support a weakened immune system. Some key herbs in this formula are:

Astragalus – this herb is considered an anti-aging tonic, it supports cardiovascular health, and immune function, and is a wonderful tonic to support healthy lung function. Astragalus is sought after to help rebuild the body after prolonged illness, excessive stress, or after overuse of medications.

Panax Ginseng – is considered an energy tonic and has been highly sought after for its benefits of supporting stamina and endurance. Many studies have been done on Ginseng’s ability to support and improve cognitive function; it is high in antioxidants which protect against aging in the brain as well. This herb also supports healthy lung and immune function.

Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) – Reishi is a beneficial mushroom with a history of use which spans thousands of years. Reishi is known for its ability to enhance energy and slow the aging process. Like panax ginseng it helps improve cognitive function and protect brain neurons. Like astragalus, panax ginseng enhances circulation of the heart and circulatory systems.


Chinese Trigger Immune formula also contains 18 additional herbs which support the above areas. This is a wonderful formula for regeneration and renewal of your energy and health.

There is another aspect of our health which can become depleted and directly affects our energy, vitality, and our sense of well-being. This is the aspect of something the Chinese call Shen. Think of your Shen as the part of you which connects with your heart center and your spirit. When Shen is depleted, we can feel depressed and lack inspiration. It becomes hard to accomplish even simple tasks because we do not seem to care about anything. Imbalances of Shen can result in mental cloudiness, loss of memory and an inability to maintain focus. Shen gets depleted when we are under long term stress, and we push ourselves to a point where we are just going through the motions of life. Anything that “upsets the heart” can deplete Shen. Trauma, arguments, emotional struggles, or overuse of alcohol and drugs – even prescription drugs, if they cause you to feel disconnected from yourself.


Nature’s Sunshine's Chinese Mood Elevator formula is a wonderful formula for restoring Shen energy. The herbs in this formula help to “calm the spirit and quiet the heart” thereby promoting a sense of inner peace. Chinese Mood Elevator helps restore your connection with Shen, which helps increases vitality and promotes a greater sense of well-being. The formula also works to gently cleanse the liver which helps to improve the flow of “Chi” (life force energy) throughout the body, which also has a mood lifting effect as well. The herbs in this formula promote healthy digestive functions.  As your connection with Shen and the flow of Chi returns you often notice a shift in your perspective. It is like the “birds are singing” again. Life begins to have more meaning and purpose; you feel more complete, and your sleep becomes more restful.
