London Olympic Games were extremely successful for many Chinese athletes – 88 overall medals, 38 of them gold – right behind the mighty USA team. China, despite its smaller medal count, continued to show impressive range in London.
It won medals in 20 different disciplines. Its biggest successes have come in six core sports: badminton, weight lifting, table tennis, diving, swimming and artistic gymnastic. But the Chinese made significant progress in the traditional American domain of swimming after winning just one gold medal in Beijing. Swimming was one of the core sports targeted by China’s Project 119: a plan launched in 2001 to improve performance in key, medal-rich sports that was named for the total number of gold medals then available in track and field, canoeing, rowing and swimming. In London, China won 5 gold medals and 10 total medals in the pool, with Sun Yang becoming the first Chinese man to win an Olympic title in swimming and ultimately winning both the 400-meter freestyle and 1500 freestyle.

But what the United States and China do share is a reliance on strong women. Both have more women’s gold medalists than men gold medalists here.

What factors were behind that huge result?

Some of them are obvious – enormous population pool to choose from the most talented athletes, a strong and methodical system of finding and rigorously training kids as young as 4 years old at special governmental and private sport schools. We can add another less known factor – the usage of the ancient Chinese herbs and herbal formulas. Due to the fact, that the usage of the absolute majority of the steroids and other banned substances are strictly controlled, many Chinese sportsmen in different sports have been using ancient Chinese formulas and herbs for strength, speed, stamina, energy, concentration, to ease the muscle pain, to increase the level of oxygen in the muscles, to recuperate completely, to heal the sport-related injuries faster.

There are many American “natural herbal” supplements available too. Unfortunately, most are manufactured by companies that have little, if any, concept on how or why herbs should be used and combined. The result of marketing herbal products without knowledge has given a lot of bad press to the legitimate herbal industry. An example of lack of herbal knowledge in manufacturing can be seen in companies that market Ma-huang (ephedra) combined with guarana. This combination has been shown to have serious side-effects like high blood pressure, palpitation, sleep problems and should be avoided. You should also avoid any “energizing” product in which Ma-huang is the major component of the formula. The excessive amount of caffeine and sugar in many modern energizing formulations will bring the same harm. Very soon it will result in kidney and liver  damage, sexual disfunctions, as well as multiple muscles, tendons, ligaments injuries, which you can see in many of the baseball, football players, cyclists, weightlifters, bodybuilders and other steroids users.

Looking for a modern equivalent would lead you to steroids. There is no doubt that steroids are powerful but where does their power come from?From the perspective of Chinese medicine, steroids rob the Qi energy  of the kidneys, spleen, heart, and liver. The strength of the internal organs is transferred to the large muscles. Thus, the negative effects of long-term steroid use observed by Western clinicians are due, according to Chinese medicine, to the weakening of the energy (Qi) of the internal organs.

According to Chinese medicine, the root of the body’s strength resides in its kidney function. One herbal supplement that gives consistent results to athletes is Ginseng Seeds – a well-balanced formula, so the herbs long-term effects help increase the performance potential derived from inner strength gained by the organs, muscles, and nerves. It’s been used for centuries by the Shaolin monks, martial artists of different styles, by Samurai and Ninja worriers, soldiers,  travelers, alpinists, world and Olympic  level sportsmen. Those who use this formula find they can go the extra distance during intense workouts or competitions, feel more energy and keep it over long periods of time. However, it doesn’t leave you feeling depleted or run-down by any after-effects. The herbs in formula nourish the basic activating qualities that give drive and movement to life. They also help to strengthen a person’s will, breaking through the emotional restrictions from lack of assertiveness, or fear.

What is even more amazing about Ginseng seeds, they start working very fast – 20-30 min after taking them.That is why it can be taken right before the competition, training, or by you if you are tired but need to go to the important meeting, show, party or test. You will feel the steady flow of energy for 6-7 hours, nice concentration, sharpness and awareness without any side effects, feeling  jittery or having problems with sleeping.

In contrast to steroids,  Ginseng seeds formula nourishes the Qi energy of the internal organs in the kidney meridian, filling them with enduring energy and helping them to function at peak levels. It is stronger than steroids and vitamins when the overall structure of the body is taken into account. The herbs go directly to the main bodily organs and fill them with long-lasting energy, enabling them to function at peak levels. It is well balanced, so its extended effects are increased performance potential built on long-term strength in the organs, muscles, and nerves.

Along with the Ginseng Seeds the other herbal formulas energize the kidney functions. They nourish and replenish your body’s Qi energy batteries that are absolutely essential for any organ and its normal functioning, from keeping the body’s temperature normal to the strength of the immune system.
