Heaven Ginseng is for the Connoisseur Who Can Appreciate its Subtle and Profound Energies.*
To the Chinese, Ginseng Root is Known as 'Ren Shen'. 'Ren Shen', roughly translates to man-root, but 'Shen' also refers to a person's spirit, higher self or soul.*
Shen tonics, like panax ginseng, are believed by Chinese sages to harmonize our internal organs and psychological emotions towards all-encompassing love.* The Chinese term Shen, or simply “Spirit” shows us that, this tonic will increase our overall mood, well-being and capacity for all-encompassing love.* Supplementation will help achieve a holistic balancing of energies that are mildly stimulating and nourishing to the bodily systems, organs, and glands, for an increased vitality that imparts an invigorating liveliness and warmth to life.*
Changbai Mountain, which is considered to have the best ginseng in the world, is also known by the names ‘Paektu-san’, ‘Baekdu-san’ and "Changbaishan" - "Perpetually White Mountain" to the Chinese.
In Northeast China is a section of particularly special mountains known by the modern name ‘Changbai’. They represent the political border of China, North Korea, and South Korea, where they are part of the longer mountain range known as the Baekdudaegan, which is part of the entire Manchu-Korean range. But specifically, it is Changbai Mountain’s high altitude, standing over 9,000 feet high that provides an exceptional location for the cultivation and harvesting of the world’s finest ginseng that grows among the forest floors, down in the valleys.
Changbai Mountain is an active volcano that erupted over one-thousand years ago, spreading its rich ashy loam as far as Japan and continues to erupt every one-hundred years or so. The huge open caldera, at its peak, is a large crater lake, Heaven Lake, which feeds the surrounding water table and rivers. Together the mountain and lake are known as Baitoushan or "White Mountain," and is part of the National Nature Reserve that protects the multitudes of flora and fauna. It may be one of the last unpolluted and environmental pristine areas in the world.
We Select Semi-Wild and Cultivated Ginseng
Semi-Wild Changbai Mountain White Ginseng that has grown on the forest floor for more than 15 years is also selected for this most precious and treasured tonic.* These roots are said to have been imbued with the spirit of the mountain and carry extra herb energy from living in wild conditions.* Being exposed to the elements and tended to by Mother Earth they gain a hardiness and spirit that carries into the person who consumes them.*
The wild roots grow in the valleys fed by Changbai Mountain, a recently erupted volcano that’s soil is rich in trace minerals, such as Germanium.* Ginseng has an affinity to uptake this mineral, and its high content of it has been studied to show effects of increasing oxygen utilization by our bodies, in turn, giving us a greater overall sense of well-being and elevated mood, as well as greater overall health.*
The semi-wild roots are sun dried and vacuum packed after harvest to maintain potency until extraction.* Unlike the red roots, the entire wild root, including the rootlet is kept for extraction.* The rootlets are known to promote blood circulation and assist the flow of subtle energies.*
We use select Cultivated Changbai Mountain Red Ginseng that is of the largest size and quality, up to 15 roots per Chinese Catty. A Chinese Catty is a unit of measure that is 600 grams or 21.33 ounces. Roots of this size and quality, grown in the area or Changbai Mountain, are the finest in the world by many ginseng connoisseurs.*
The largest and best grading of ginseng earns the designation Heaven, which recognizes their potency and viability as a superb tonic that is complete in its actions and effects.* Ginseng enthusiast seekers, assign nearly mystical qualities to these highest grade roots.*
These cultivated roots are harvested and steamed red with a tea made of red jujube dates to preserve and enhance their potency.* They are later sun dried. Processing ginseng in this manner increases the amount and variety of active ginsenosides, as well as assisting and smoothing the energy of these wonderfully balanced roots that are easy to consume for any length of time.*

Heaven Ginseng Dosage Equation:
The dosage of most tonics work by bodyweight and activity level and dietary factors. The amount of Heaven Ginseng taken is highly dependent on activity level and diet factors.
BW + AL + DF
Bodyweight (BW) is the overall weight measured by a bathroom or locker room scale.
Activity level (AL) is a relative unit based on the amount of work accomplished, stress-levels and fitness-intensity.
Diet factors (DF) are based on how much calories and food is taken in, such as protein, fat and carbohydrates.
Estimated Daily Dosage:
BW = 1 dropper per ~150 pounds bodyweight
AL = + 1-2 droppers - 1 low/medium, 2 medium/high
DF = + 1 dropper for every 1250 kcal reached
Example: 185lb person (BW = 1 dropper) who is working a desk job with a moderate stress day (AL = 1-2 droppers) and eats ~1850 kcals (DF = 1 dropper) would have a functional dosage of 3-4 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example is BW 1 + AL 1-2 + DF 1 = 3-4 droppers
To find a functional dose, start with a minimum dose of 10 drops to 1 dropper and work up to a functional dose.* Many benefits of tonics come from consistent and continued use over a period of time.*
Heaven Ginseng dropper:
- 60 1ml droppers in a 2oz (60ml) bottle
- 1ml dropper = ~750 mgs Heaven Ginseng extract
Heaven Ginseng drops:
- 30 drops in a 1ml dropper
- 1 drop = ~25 mgs Heaven Ginseng extract
Suggested Heaven Ginseng Cycle:*
- Initial Phase = 3-45 days
- Health Cultivation = ∞
- Optional Cycle-off Period = 15-45 days
Continuous consumption of Heaven Ginseng will yield increasing benefits and results over the time consumed; in other words, consistent daily consumption of Heaven Ginseng at a functional dosage over the period of suggested time will increase health and wellness benefits.*
After an initial cycle Heaven Ginseng may be continued on-and-off for the cultivation of health or traded-out for another tonic adaptogen superfood.*
How to Take
Heaven Ginseng may be taken anytime.*
The addition of probiotics in the daily diet will further activate the constituents, such as ginsenosides and polysacchrides, in the extraction for easy assimilation.*
Benefits with tonics take time; taking enough consistently rewards health †
Take as desired: consume on a continuous basis to develop the natural tonic and adaptogenic benefits that build over time.* Some benefits are immediate and some results require consumption over several days and weeks to accomplish.* A good tonic cycle is 45-90 days of a tonic adaptogen which will generate lasting health changes.*
Shake gently: secure the lid and turn the bottle over back-and-forth 3-5 times to evenly distribute the tincture. Do not over-shake as the vigorous mixing of air with the extract will oxidize and damage many of the necessary constituents for required dosage and potency.
By mouth: hold the liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of extract; doing so allows digestion to begin in the mouth and will take advantage of the activated multi-step extract so that many of the constituents will bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth and throat.* Holding the extract also promotes better absorption and assimilation and elicits an immediate effect that is performance oriented*
Mix with water: squirt the drops or entire droppers into 2-4 oz. of water that is under 120*F. Water that is cool to lukewarm temperature is best to preserve the volatile and fragile constituents from being damaged and denatured which will reduce the potency of the extract.* Sip slowly to allow absorption in the mouth and throat.* This method makes it easier to become accustomed to the extract and to take larger doses of several different tinctures at once in a tonic program.*
For maximum potency: regularly consume the tincture within a period of 45 days; after 45 days of continuous consumption the extract may begin to gradually lose potency requiring a larger dosage to achieve similar benefit.* A bottle will generally last 10-30 days depending on dosage and concurrent supplementation programming.*
