It is the perfect anti-stress herb. It helps to center you.

Astragalus Root is one of the most powerful natural agents in the world at regulating the functions of the body. It is a fundamental Qi tonic and should be a part of any adaptogenic, anti-stress formula. In fact it is a quintessential double-directional herb, one that helps support and regulate the immune system. It is a superb adaptogen.
Cordyceps is one of the superstars of the Chinese tonic herbal system. It is an extremely effective and powerful life-enhancing agent, ranking right up there with Reishi. Because the wild variety from the Himalayas is rare and highly treasured, it is very expensive. The mycelium, which can be cultured, is almost as potent and is quite a bit less expensive. Cordyceps mycelium is a moderately yang primal essence (Jing) tonic of high stature. Cordyceps mycelium is used to support the functions of the body and mind at a fundamental level. An ancient Chinese herbal classic said that Cordyceps is able to support the “primary motive force for life activities.” Because it contains both Yin and Yang it can be used by anyone safely and over a long period of time. It replenishes Yin Jing, restoring the deep energy expended as a result of exertion, adapting to stress and from aging. Cordyceps is thus one of the primary herbal substances used in tonic herbalismas an anti-aging agent and for the purposes of rejuvenation. Cordycepsmycelium is very widely used in Asia for the purposes of supporting the primal Kidney functions, which include sexual functions, brain power and structural integrity. It is a very powerful Yang tonic. As a sexual tonic, Cordyceps mycelium is considered to be one of the best. Consistent use of Cordyceps mycelium supports the skeletal structure. Cordyceps is used to support respiratory power in those who perform physical work (e.g. labor, sports or exercise). Cordyceps is considered in Asia to be a powerful athlete’s tonic.
Schizandra is a major adaptogenic herb. Schizandra helps keep you relaxed and alert and supports the functions of the nervous system. Schizandra is considered to be one of the premium mind tonics of herbalism. It is used to support concentration, memory and alertness. Yet, unlike caffeine-like stimulants, Schizandra does not produce nervousness. In fact, Schizandra is mildly “calming” while producing wakefulness and mental focus.*
