    What does it do?

    Maintain strength and stamina

    Ever notice how sometimes you just can't seem to fully regain your strength? You're so listless you can barely sustain a conversation, much less climb a flight of stairs. Moreover, when you look in the mirror, you barely recognize the pale face devoid of vibrancy staring back at you. However, you've done plenty of sleeping and your condition has not improved.

    Tonics8™ is an herbal traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) remedy that may help you feel normal. It may tonify both Blood and Qi, thus normalizing bodily functions and supporting energy levels.

    Classic Blood and Qi Tonic Formulas in a Combo

    Both men and women can benefit from Tonics8, especially in the case of the TCM syndrome associated with pale complexion, weak breathing, blood deficiency and menstruation. (Women are more often prone to blood deficiency, especially when heavy menstruation occurs.).

    Qi and Blood are fundamental concepts in TCM, required for homeostasis and a long, healthy life. First, Qi is the vital force that controls your body. Qi is nourished by the air you breathe and the food you eat (including Chinese herbs). As for blood, which is interconnected with Qi, one of its primary roles is to nourish the body's tissues. However, your body can become deficient in healthy blood production if your Qi is deficient, and thus, your tissues become dry, resulting in not only tiredness, but a pale complexion.

    The reason Tonics8 may help is, it's actually two classic, basic formulas rolled into one: Si Wu Tang Pian, a well regarded ancient Chinese medicine used to enrich the Blood and support a normal menstrual cycle, and Si Jun Zi Tang, an equally-revered, centuries-old formula for supplementing Spleen Qi energy and supporting digestion.

    How does Tonics8 work?

    In the formula, Dang Shen (Codonopsis Root) tonifies the middle burner, augments Qi, and strengthens the Spleen. Bai Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome) tonifies the Spleen and augments Qi and dries dampness. Another herb in the formula that leaches out dampness is Fu Ling (Poria), which also strengthens the Spleen.

    Another Qi-augmenting and Spleen tonifier is Gan Cao (Licorice Root), which also expels phlegm. The above 4 herbs comprise the the famous Spleen Qi supplementing formula, Si Jun Zi Tang.

    The next four herbs make Si Wu Tang, the fundamental Blood tonic. Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) is used to nourish and invigorate the Blood, while Bai Shao (White Peony Root) nourishes the blood and regulates menses.

    Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Rhizome) invigorates the Blood and moves Qi. The last herb in the formula is Shu Di Huang (Processed Rehmannia Root), which tonifies Yin and Jing as well as nourishes the Blood.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard to tell for right now I have been taken this pill for the symptoms of easy tiring, feeling weak and lack of energy. I believe in Chinese herb medicine, but I also know it will take a while to get the result. Right now I am on the second bottle and I hope I can feel a full improvement after one or two month.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great formula for recovering from your menstrual period I learned in Chinese Herbology school that this is a great formula for recovering from your menstrual period. Think about it; you've lost blood, your appetite is shot, and you have almost no energy. Tonics8 will restore all of that and make you feel right again. My Chinese Herbology teachers say to take this formula after your period until ovulation (at which point they recommend taking EaseTonic until the beginning of your period and nothing during your period). The Tonics8 formula is also good for men with low energy, poor appetite, and symptoms of Blood Deficiency such as pale face, spots in visual field, dry skin or hair, dizziness, heart palpitations, insomnia, and forgetfulness. I tend to fall into the Blood Deficient type: pale face with dry skin and hair -- especially in winter. If I overdo things physically or at work I notice these symptoms much more, along with low energy and appetite. After taking the standard dose listed on the bottle for a week I feel and look much better. I'm so grateful for this formula!
