Rejuvenative Food

Given the proper nutrition the body can effectively deal with most health challenges.
Today's western medical approaches rely on substituting drugs and isolated chemicals for a particular body function, ignoring the underlying health problem. If the immune system is weak, antibiotics are used; if the digestive system is weak, digestive enzymes are used, and so on. These do not feed and strengthen the systems. They are simply substitutions.

Sunrider food herb formulas are available today in concentrated form.
We must shift from the "disease" point of view - where we seek an external cure to a specific disease - to the principle of Philosophy of Regeneration - where you seek to strengthen your body, noting the symptoms only as signs of possible weakness.
- The Chinese herb food formulas cure nothing.
- The body alone heals, spontaneously and naturally.
- The goal is to support your body with wholesome, system-specific nutritional formulas.

Sunrider products provide the body with nutritious whole foods, which in turn provide the each body system with energy to drive body functions.

FOOD HERBS vs. MEDICINAL HERBS. The ancient Chinese classified herbs into three categories:
  • Medicinal Herbs - control or replace body functions, similar to drugs
  • "Food" herbs - do not control the body, but feed the body nutritionally and support its functioning and self-regulation.
  • Reanimation or Crisis herbs - are intended to be prescribed by a physician during a health emergency.

Sunrider Herbs are Food Herbs, Not Medicinal Herbs.
Unlike medicinal herbs, which function as drugs - food herbs merely nourish.
The ancient Chinese described food herbs as "kingly" because they were so highly prized and used to maintain excellent health and longevity of imperial dynasties.
The medicinal and crisis herbs were valuable only to accompany food herbs during a health crisis.
Medicinal and crisis herbs represent the principle of Western medicine, which usually provides a quick "band-aid" fix in a health crisis.

Concentration is the process of retaining the wholeness of the plant in smaller, but more valuable quantities.
The herb plants are separated into water- and oil-soluble nutrients, and cellulose.
The cellulose is discarded, and the oil- and water-soluble nutrients are spray-dried or flo-coated together.
The water evaporates, leaving a powder rich in nutrients, to guarantee long-term stability and improved efficiency. Many pounds of herbs become one pound of product.
This means Sunrider capsules contain much more nutrition than ordinary herb capsules. Concentration is crucial because without it, you would have to consume huge quantities of certain foods to obtain its benefits.

When foods are properly combined, they are formulated to work together to create a stronger food.
That means the strong point of one ingredient can cover the weakness of another.
When foods are arranged in particular ratios and relationships, subtle healing properties emerge.
Formulating herbs brings out the good effects and diminishes the side effects, and enables them to better nourish each of the body's systems for overall health and balance.
The formulas instructions contain more than just an ingredients list.
They also contain detailed instructions for selection and preparation, which the ancient Chinese developed into a fine art.
This is why no one can copy Dr. Chen's Sunrider formulas just by reading the labels.
Even if they could figure out the amount of the different herbs, they've all been enhanced in ways that only Dr. Chen understands.

Sunrider herb foods for optimum health are organically grown & processed with no preservatives, unhealthy fat, fillers, chemical additives or sweeteners.
No preservatives are used in Sunrider's gelatin capsules, as are used in some other company's. Sunrider has never radiated or fumigated their herbs, the usual method for cleaning. The finest raw herbs available are selected and cleaned by hand and machine.
